  1. Personally I would take a look at the Zaxcom Nova in store, and have a play around with one. I love mine, but I definitely know its not for everyone (especially in terms of GUI and control).
  2. Probably something a bit to do with the number of inputs. Nomad 12 has 11 analog inputs, versus Nova's 6. Nomad has 4 AES pairs, Nova has 2. But mostly likely its just cause that was there old price and they are not expecting many people to buy it.
  3. I use Zaxcom ZMT2's as a wireless boom when I'm doing doco's. I just put them on 25mw, never had an issue with intermods. Definitely consider using a digital system if you're going to use it so close to the bag.
  4. Finally got some time to make a charging case over the two week Melbourne (Australia) Stage 4 Lockdown. Would love to see what everyone has done for Charging Cases?
  5. Incredible work! If you had've made one a couple of years ago I would have definitely bought it off you. The CL wifi was always a terrible pain. Definitely wish they had've made it wired.
  6. Hi All, I've been seeing a number of Cooper Mixers come up for sale recently, was interested in potentially getting one. But I have a question about how people mixed on them (i.e. non-mixing surfaces for recorders, purely mixers) with wireless and hardline. With my recorders I always have 3.5ms to 6ms of delay on my hardline channels due to the wireless having a delay. How did people used to deal with this back in Cooper and Nagra days considering there doesn't seem to be a delay function?
  7. Just out of curiosity have you considered trying out a brand like wisycom? If frequency coordination or lack of open RF is your biggest problem, they definitely do the best out of any brand (I say that as a Lectro and Zaxcom user). Also will just note that the future request of most talent probably will be miniature wireless (Lectro SM, Zaxcom ZMT) etc, so I definitely wouldn't recommend LT in that sense.
  8. I actually almost always have a light Noise Reduction (-4db to -6db) on my IFB sends and mix. With consistent hums and fans it's pretty good, obviously not cedar level, but definitely helps. That said with alternating noise (traffic or inconsistent whurs), it doesn't deal that well and often sounds better with it not turned on.
  9. For me I bought all my stuff used and then slowly evolved to better stuff. I was kind of turning around my entire kit every 12 or so months to try and get better stuff. Because a year isn't particularly long for the devaluation of gear I never lost any money selling my used equipment to better ones. I started with: SD302, Lectrosonics 210D's, Sennheiser 416T Then went to: 744T, Lectro 211, Sennheiser 416 Then: 788T, Zaxcom QRX100, Sanken cs3e Then: Nomad/Maxx, QRX200, Schoeps CMIT/CMC541 Now: Nova, MRX414 Modules, Still Schoeps --> These are the first things I've ever bought new. That's how I kind of kept it manageable as I was still growing clients. Also important to note, when I was starting off every shoot expected equipment, so it was either rental or buy it. At the start though a mixer and a couple of lavs isn't too hefty a price so I went down that route.
  10. I'm just going to put it out there, Zaxcom Nova put out an update that allowed you to go from 12 recorded tracks to 16, an AutoMix and a NR algorithm mix instance for free.
  11. Is this for using in a sound bag or just for transportation? Because its a rack mount recorder (generally speaking), there won't be any bags that will actually fit it properly. But looking at its specs it is roughly the same height as a SD 788T with CL/8. So maybe look in that direction and get it customized.
  12. I guess maybe an updated URX100 With charging and a speaker would be nice as well. But am very happy to see the URX50, definitely keen for a couple of them.
  13. Honestly, the old handheld Nagra's are incredible and worth checking out. The Nagra SD sounds absolutely gorgeous and you could probably pick one up really cheap.
  14. I would 100% recommend either a Zaxcom Maxx or a Nova. I've ran a Maxx with 2 x Dual Receivers, an Antenna Distro an a Camera Link for a full day on 1 smart battery.
