NeverClip Explained

NeverClip™ incorporates two separate analog to digital converters that work in conjunction with each other to give you an unprecedented 137dB of dynamic range in Nomad and Zax-Maxx recorders and 125dB of dynamic range in Zaxcom TRX wireless and ZFR miniature recorders. The signals from the two converters are combined in the digital domain to provide the entire, unclipped dynamic range of the audio inputs to Nomad, Maxx, TRX’s transmitters or ZFR’s recorders.

The full dynamic range of the NeverClip inputs can also be recorded to the isolated record tracks of Nomad and Maxx. These tracks can give you extended headroom of up to 44dB. Currently, typical file headroom is 20dB but Zaxcom’s NeverClip files can offer headroom of 26dB, 32dB, 38dB or 44dB. The embedded iXML track metadata will indicate the headroom for each NeverClip file. NeverClip files are
industry standard Broadcast Wave files with extra iXML data included which can
be utilized by any post production system.

If you’re recording on a Zaxcom Nomad recorder, please talk to your post department to see how NeverClip files can enhance dynamic range and give them the isolated track files they need to produce the best mix possible.
