Adjusting to Multi-track; Pre Fade vs Post Fade / Monitoring
Mike Wally posted a topic in WorkflowHey guys, I switched from using a SD302 w/ a Zoom H4N to a Zaxcom Nomad. It's been quite a jump, and I love all the things it can do. On a philosophical level, I think I'm still a bit confused about multi-track recording. Hopefully you guys can help and offer some insight. When using the 302, when I turned the knob, it controlled how much or little volume the recorder would record. I would monitor from my source, since that's what I was ultimately recording. If I needed more bump, I could turn a gain knob and open it up. I assume that is post-fader recording/monitoring. By default set up, the Nomad uses post fade, i think. This makes it so that when I'm mixing, moving the fader knobs doesn't actually really effect anything, so i'm generally just mixing using my gain knob. I have it set up to record isolated tracks for the first 5 channels, but channel 6 is a mono mix of what ever combination i'm using. I guess I'm just confused with how monitoring on my Nomad is different from recording to my Zoom. I really hope i'm making sense, and I know it seems simple, but I'm having some problems grasping the whole pre-post fade thing. Thank you, -w
