Zaxcom Nomad notch filter

Recommended Posts

Hello all - 

RTFM but couldn't find anything about notch filters in the Nomad. The description of the machine describes 2 per channel. Where are they? How are they operated. Can they be applied and have someone be unaware? Used machine or something, and notch set without knowledge. Or lent it to someone who made changes? That kind of thing. How would you know if it wasn't audible in the field?

Thanks,

Robert

Thanks. A post colleague advised me that he got ISO tracks with a couple of frequencies that were completely notched nearly 100%. I know the recorder is a Nomad. I also doubt this was an intentional move by this particular production mixer. So just curious how it might have happened inadvertently.

I doubt post could hear the Nomad notches being active. They are very transparent yet effective but don't colour the overall sound at all. Which is why it's easy to forget they're on. Maybe it's the wireless that were in use on this particular production?

They would be easy to see on a spectrogram. I agree they shouldn't be a concern for post though, as they are very shallow and do not significantly alter the overall sound.
