Pompton Plains, NJ — February 28, 2020 — Zaxcom today announced the launch of software version 2.0 for the Nova recorder / mixer / receiver. Version 2.0 increases the recording track count from 12 to 16, introduces an adaptive threshold Automixer algorithm, support for the Oasis control surface, a Walkie Talkie interface, and a mirror file list.

16 tracks of simultaneous recording and mirroring makes Nova even more powerful and versatile than before, with enough tracks to cover you from a small ENG shoot to a feature film. As with most Zaxcom recorder / mixers, you can mix and record any combination of ISO’s or mix tracks to any of the 16 tracks.

The adaptive threshold Automixer algorithm helps take the guesswork out of unscripted dialog – it automatically opens and closes microphones so dialog is smooth with minimal to no background noise.

Zaxcom’s Oasis control surface hardware can be used for external linear fader control, ideal for sound cart setup. The Walkie Talkie interface lets you plug your Walkie Talkie into the Nova and use your slate mic and headphones for communication around set with integrated push to talk functionality.

The new mirror file list keeps a running list of all files mirrored for a visual confirmation. Other new features include Sound Report generation while mirroring, the ability to disable unused home screen views and better recognition of a variety of CF cards.

The Nova is a complete sound solution that combines a mixer, a recorder, ZaxNet™ remote control and built-in wireless receivers into one compact and lightweight device. Outfitted with two MRX-414 internal receiver modules Nova can receive up to 8 channels of wireless. The unit weighs approximately 3.5 lbs and has a 1 Amp power draw. Nova sets a new standard in sound recording capabilities for feature film, television broadcast, live performance and sound effects recording.
