  1. ZMT3 & PowerRoll

    "Yup, I had an TRX3.5LT and it was funky and wouldn't transmit... I sent it in three time under warranty and was told the TRXLT3.5 were having issues and were to be discontinued." There are no I repeat no "issues" with the TRX3.5LT. It is simply that everyone now wants the ZMT3.5 so you go with the flow. Glenn
  2. ZMT3 & PowerRoll

    Since I recorded the Gotham video I decided to not include the power roll feature as it did not save as much power as I expected it would at that time. Power roll is very effective with our TRXLA3.5 so it will continue to be a supported feature of that product. We do need to make sure the documentation is correct based on the final product specification. Run time of the ZMT has been limited to about 5 hours. This of course has a lot to do with the capacity of the battery. Glenn
  3. Zaxcom QRX100 - battery Power

    The QRX100 needs 12V at about 300ma. 9V can not do that for you. Use any 12V nominal battery that can supply enough current. Glenn
  4. new plugOn TRX from Zaxcom

    Yes they do.
  5. Zaxcom recording wireless at work

    Great story. Thanks for sharing. Glenn
  6. Zaxcom recording wireless at work

    John used the wireless QC function with an ERX3TCD to monitor the audio quality of each instrument after it was placed on an instrument. Holding the receiver a foot or two from the pack would not disturb the talent yet allows for a hard wired monitor of each track before the performance. There was no live mixdown. With neverclip in the packs and no limiter or compander distortion the system is much less in need of the traditional monitoring necessary in a multi track recording. I believe they had to do it in one take with no setup in the station as I do not think there was any official permission to do it. (could be wrong on this though)
  7. Zaxcom recording wireless at work

    John Dequino was the sound mixer who put this together. The unique thing here is the use of the Zaxcom virtual multi track recording system without the use of any wireless or centralized multi-track recorder. I think it was DPA mics in use but I will ask to be sure. Because all transmitters got time code via Zaxnet the protools part was just an ordinary mix job. Did not take any extra time to mix.
  8. I wanted to post a link to this video. It was recorded with 30 Zaxcom recording transmitters and ZFR recorders. Each track was synced via Zaxnet and was verified with wireless QC. Each transmitter/recorder was switched on and the show began. All tracks were taken from the transmitter/recorders recorded cards and combined in protools.

    Make sure the mic does not have a red band on it. If so it will be 10dB worse when it comes to the noise floor. If that is not it give us a call and we will help you figure it out. In a proper gain configuration there will be no discernible noise floor. Glenn
  10. Change is inevitable

    Curmudgeon sound services. Congratulations Eric. Glenn
  11. I would not adjust any of the dynamics settings they are at the optimum setting by the factory for the unit to never clip . I would let the peaks on the transmitter meter come up to -10dB from full scale. Also be sure to use a mic without the -10dB red band. This kills the signal to noise by 10dB.
  12. Suggestions - kitchen table unscripted discussion

    You might think about Zaxcom ZFR recorders. Yes they are lav based but they are not transmitters. Either put them on each person or wire them to the table edge at each sitting position with the packs hidden under the table. I would go with a countryman ENW mic as they are quite sensitive and inexpensive, With Zaxnet time code there will be no jaming. Just switch on the ZFRs and either let them record or control them all with Zaxnet to only record what you need. Use an ERX3TCD receiver to wirelessly verify audio quality on each pack and time code sync.
  13. That is not correct. There is no more interference from a digital system than from an analog system as long as FCC specs are met or exceeded as we do. The only difference is the amplitude component of the digital signal that can more easily show rf interference on microphones and other gear that does not have proper RF shielding. A cell phone will do that as well.
  14. Zaxcom Wireless and IFB Range

    Wireless range with the Zaxcom UHF wireless is not a factor unless you want to consider it is often better than analog wireless. With our digital system we can receive a perfect signal with only 7 dB of RF signal above the noise. This is pretty much the theoretical limit for this kind of thing. The more important questions are: What does it sound like? What features does it have? Will it make me stand out as someone who will get hired more often, and can I charge more for the internal recording as a value added feature? A long long time ago range was more of an issue. Today it is more of an asset. Glenn
  15. New Zaxcom small transmitter - ZMT

    There is a small reduction in latency due to the new A-D in the transmitter. It would not be noticeable . Glenn
