Zaxcom Nomad - operating questions, plus tips & shortcuts

I am having phantom power poping problems with my nomad. Is this a software issue or a hardware issue? The poping is very intermittent and extremely bothersome. Any suggestions?

Is a very common failure (on early Nomads), I had a unit with a strong pops on several inputs (with and without phantom), now I have a new one with some noise in two inputs ( still waiting for a new input board)

" i 'm shure i had the correct cable for this purpose..the SB-T and the cable are from a very serious rental compagny..."

so?  they could be supplying a cable that works with other gear...
" I first thought the cable was faulty, so i tried 3 or 4 other cables. "

where were these from ?  theycould have been the same incorrect wiring...

did you try the test suggested...

 

" i Just don't like not understanding why.. "

It could be the cable, or it could be the box...

vf mode. Its available on your eng pan screen.

Yes, but having to toggle between each fader isn't really working out for me. I need something quicker then that. 

Mix pre sending AES?

I had seen your post before on this. How is this working out for you?

I agree with you Michael, vf isn't an enjoyable mixing experience for me either.

Hoping for an external fader module in the future. And panning... Uhg.

Before I posted my question I had checked the site first for any suggestions. I stumbled across a a post in which Glenn said there are no plans for an external fader module. =(

What about 2 Emergency Rx's? That's what I'd try.

I've never seen those. Looks pretty slick.

Thanks for the suggestion.

No problem. That's the easiest way I could think of that gives you a physical fader. I haven't actually test it out yet though. I could today to see if it works if you'd like.

Hmm wasn't me. It is in the to do list as I want a mix pre anyway as a backup mixer. Also, funny story- I was in a dub stage with mark yesterday when you sent someone over to pick up something for anodizing ;) small world.

Fader control can be easily accessed directly from the ENG home screen. Nomad can be setup to directly access channels 7 and 8 only.

 

Pressing the menu encoder will toggle between the 2 channels. The virtual fader screen is not necessary at this point.

Thanks. I'll give it a try.

Hi Everyone,

 

I was wondering if there is an experienced (15+ years ) Location Mixer who is familiar with a Zaxcom Nomad config who can do a 1-day training session for common location sound practices. I'm new to the production sound industry and would like someone in the LA,OC,SD (California) area to show me the ropes using a Nomad. If you are interested please email me with your name, years of experience, available equipment, rate(for half day or full day) and contact info: yoshi@tallgrasspictures.com

 

Thanks,

Yoshi

Why do you think someone who has 15 years experience knows more about a machine that's less than 2 years old? Regards Chris W
