Zaxcom Enables Audition and Re-record on its Nomad Compact Recorder  

Zaxcom has announced that software v8.0 for its Nomad mixer/recorder includes a new feature for enhanced workflow, ZaxNet Audition and Re-record.

Zaxcom said Nomad has been embraced by the sound community worldwide and is used in many different types of production applications. The addition of ZaxNet Audition and Re-record allows operators to instantly remix and re-record audio that has already been recorded to the Nomad using Zaxcom Digital Recording Wireless transmitters.



To take advantage of this new feature, Zaxcom transmitters, such as the ZMT3 or TRXLA3, should have its internal microSD recording enabled. After an audio take has been recorded to Nomad, users can playback the sound from the transmitter’s internal recording to instantly remix or re-record the audio as if it was being heard for the first time.



ZaxNet Audition and Re-record is unique because it now eliminates possible RF interference or dropouts that may occur during wireless transmissions in a mix track. Additionally, an unlimited number of Zaxcom Digital Recording Wireless transmitters can be controlled by Nomad to replay audio with timecode.

ZaxNet Audition and Re-record also allows operators to remix any recording for an improved mix track whether a dropout occurs or not. This feature is functional even with talent still wearing the bodypack transmitter.



ZaxNet is a 2.4 GHz control and distribution network, incorporating timecode transmission, wireless microphone remote control and IFB audio transmission and comes standard on Nomad 10 or Nomad 12. Other features include remote transmitter gain control, transmitter frequency control, internal microSD recording control and PowerRoll. The maximum control distance is over a range of up to 500 feet.
