  1. For a raucous and raunchy surf/garage/punk/rockabilly hybrid, I adore the sound of Poison Ivy and her 1958 Gretsch (6120?) weighed down with heavy strings. When I saw them live she had blackface amps on stage but I remember her saying somewhere that she uses smaller rigs for recording sessions. Anyways here’s some of that original Psychobilly sound: Cheers, Evan
  2. no, however I haven’t ever used this setting since having them. Maybe it’s a firmware issue? I can compare their versions and see. Thanks, John! Cheers, Evan
  3. I’ve recently noticed that two of my TRXLAs give a very false readout of battery life when using Lithiums (QRX setting). I can have two fresh batts installed and the indicator will drop to empty and blink within seconds. This is an issue on two of my four LAs (1x2.5 / 1x3.5). The nimh and alk readouts are just fine. Cheers, Evan
  4. I have to do unmonitored vehicle bag drops at least once a day for many of the docu-series I work on and have been doing so for 20 years... Jeff is right— 32bit is unnecessary. Wireless on talent and proper gain staging is all that Is needed. Cheers, Evan
  5. Reviving this thread..... Any new options out there? I love the silicone skin that SoundCases NYC is making, however the clip seems a little too bulky for my needs. I would prefer something that sits more flush against the transmitter (and 360 degree rotating ability is a major plus!). The OR311 seems okay.... But only okay. Maybe its great, I don't know. I can't seem to find the Sony pouches shown above. Those too seem fine, I only wish the clip rotated. I often have to point my tx antennas down. Just want to see what other options are out there. Cheers, Evan
  6. Hush lavs work great for me as well— held in place on the antenna by topstick or super-mini rubber bands (which I buy in bulk and use for excess cable wrangling as well). Although in extreme situations, the hush can be its own form of absorption material and you get back a tiny sponge which is quite vile. The glamorous life of showbiz. Cheers, Evan

    For those who have hands-on Nova experience so far: Does the dynamic banking effectively eliminate the need for a FP8-style hardware add on? I usually run 6-8 wireless on any given day and the V-Faders of my Nomads are too cumbersome for quick, on the fly adjustments and the FP8 (for my setup) is overkill. I’ve read the thread and watched the video but the precise functionality of the banking/non-autotrim is still shrouded in a little mystery. Any first hand knowledge of this Nova workflow with more than 5 wireless would be a great help. Cheers, Evan
  8. Same here, yet so many people complain that they break easily— even the updated versions. I leave some on at the end of each day, I take some off.... and I travel extensively so they see their fair share of movement. It’s all voodoo. Cheers, Evan
  9. Thanks for the response, Glenn. Being stuck in 7.97 for so long has been frustrating on a daily basis, since that version has its own set of bugs. Looking forward to moving forward! Cheers, Evan Meszaros
  10. Please let us know what Glenn says. Cheers, Evan
  11. I too am getting fed up with the Vfader issue. I’ve had to go back to 7.97(J?) in order to use them again but I lose the advanced 8.XX features. Many of us have repeatedly asked for this to be addressed and nothing has happened in.... a year, maybe? Cheers, Evan Meszaros

    Since pre-orders are already in full swing and the roll out seems to be July-ish, does Zaxcom have any plans to offer package deal pricing for Nova + 212 modules? Inquiring wallets want to know. Cheers, Evan
  13. Jeff! I absolutely love this film. Thank you for being an integral part to making this masterpiece. Cheers, Evan

    Does the internal Micplexer work in conjunction with the (upcoming) external RX add-ons? I’m wondering if I can successfully use Lectro SRbs as the two additional receivers or if the micplexer filtering is proprietary for Zax gear. Cheers, Evan
  15. Lasers need jobs too! #LaserRights
