  1. Today
  2. I just received this email from Avid: Important install update regarding Pro Tools products This email is to inform you that Pro Tools 2019.6 (released today) resolves an issue we uncovered where interruptions in internet connectivity can cause Pro Tools | First, Pro Tools, and Pro Tools | Ultimate to delete local (offline) Projects. We escalated this issue with high priority, identified the cause, and have delivered a fix with this release. It is advised that you install this update if you are using cloud storage.

  3. Yesterday
  4. Just one short warning Christian..... Those mic pres... dont ever even think of overcooking them - they will crack like f--k and it is not a nice experience. If you are doing organ and similar recordings then I am sure you will have the measure of the dynamic range - you will not really need to worry about this too much, but.... Back in the days of dialogue recording... if the actor spoke the rehearsal and hollered the take, if you over modded the IP gain... boy those IP amps were unforgiving 😉 sb
  5. It's a great machine Glenn, must have been way ahead of its time at the time you released it. I've just handed it over to the local audio tech because the phantom power to mic input 4 isn't working. I'm sure it'll come back fixed and I'll be very happy. In the meantime, I'm playing with my 2 channel recordings from Saturday; the pipe organ sounds clean with great detail, transparency and a lovely crispness in the highs which I find very important for baroque material such as Bach.

    nova!

    The Nova looks and sounds like an excellent product to me, an all important, significantly increased capability, for significantly less weight has been achieved, we really don't need ever more behemoth recorders to drive ourselves in to the ground, with ever increasing producer demands. The Zaxcom Nova is really going in the right direction, and no one else is, except perhaps Zoom but with much simpler recorders. All you complainers are like spoilt brats already moaning about something that you have not even tried yet.....:)

    nova!

    The rotary encoders are what I’m most excited about.
  8. I agree Philip, if the pres and ADC/DAC are good, and I love the sound of the Zaxcom and how quiet it is.
  9. I see solid pro-level file based recorders, esp those that can record to non-spinning media, as being as good to go long term as 1/4" Nagra recorders are, maybe better since so few moving parts. As long as you can keep the buttons and connectors working they should roll on for a very long time. Coming from the hell-world of DAT, this is a welcome thing!

    nova!

    The 5 pots of the Nomad are set up with instant access of 4 banks of assignable routing allowing 20 channels to be controlled with unparalleled flexibility . I think it is time to look at faders differently. Nova is a new common sense approach that allows the same fader knob to control fader levels and trims with the same large no compromise knob. All adjustments have a great smooth feel on a spacious non cluttered control area that we are sure will be a future trend. The single size control knob combined with the channel assignable banks and LED input meters with fader position indication are a defining feature of Nova and one that I am very happy that we went with.
  11. Glad to see a modern solution for the old file systems. The Deva II was really our first recorder and in many ways was too cool as we made it from scratch with no idea what it was going to be until we were finished. The Deva II was the first dual media recorder, First with pre-record and first 4 track portable recorder. Glenn
  12. I've let Howy, who I was speaking to at Zaxcom, know how I solved it. Anyway, I hope the info is useful to anyone else like me who is foolish enough to want to use 20 year old technology. At least now I have a solid 4 track with great pres and timecode generator that I paid nothing for 😁. ... And thanks to all on the thread for your input and enthusiasm; what a lovely, welcoming forum this is. I shall look forward to talking to you all further.
  13. My last video I recorded during 48HOURS:

    nova!

    Why can't the electronics be shifted elsewhere? Or are the connectors bulky and on the sides? Anyway, the core point is: we live in a day in age when almost everyone has a small compact cellphone in their pocket, which even a 5" screen on it is regarded as "small". To have a screen which is even smaller than our smallest of small screens that we all carry in our pockets, seems.... rather old fashioned? This isn't 2009 when 3" screens still seemed like a reasonable size!
  15. It isn't too hard to fine tune your feed, either via the brute force method (unfriend them!) or via somewhat more (or less) subtle methods to feed the algorithm
  16. Thanks Ty I did not have a listen cause I'm not a studio guy But my advice when you are on location and asked for a voice over is the way to go imho Cheers mike
  17. Firstly how many? And yes even channels on different blocks need computer based planning. I did a job once with 11 radio mikes, had to plan it and submit frequencies as we were shooting at a major airport for 2 days Good luck mike
  18. Thanks to all you guys Will look into this again tomorrow Cheers mike
  19. we have to deal with a cart not optimized with receivers, can many pairs of receiving antennas of different systems,( 2 boosted antenna on wisycom, 2 dipole self made antennas on a lectrosonics venue, others pairs of antenna of several other lectros in other blocks) can in some way affect to each other performance or introduce any other issues? when using many transmitters, we have to deal severely with intermodulation error, but there is some technical issue coming out on receivers? thank you
  20. As Johnny said, select each channel (one at a time) and see if each one is at 0dB. If any are less, turn them up with the select knob.
  21. I totally agree, but I also think small pots, or 5 medium and 3 small pots would have been a lot more flexible. The 633 has 6 faders. Love the banks, love the flexibility with the faders, but a little more would have been awesome.
  22. But the pots on the Nova are not just simple pots... Sure, I donät think I'd like to scroll through banks of faders on rotary encoders on a big mixing project, but then it's the wrong tool for the job. This is a great machine for ENG/Reality jobs, where you have a boom and four wireless, with the possibility for more. There is not mixer to rule them all
  23. I am grabbing a Nova, but I have to say, if you look at what zoom has done with f6 and f8, they fit 6 and 8 faders in a very small space. I feel like 8 smaller faders for the Nova would have made this product vastly more popular, many gigs I do run 6 lava and a boom.... 8 smaller faders on a Nova would be really really really cool. 5 faders with what this mixer is capable of puts it in the middle grounds. 8 Smaller faders, do it, you will love it. 🙂
  24. Knob position doesn't do it for me on my 664. Where are you peaking the 633? Regards, Ty Ford
