The small, lightweight FP7 control surface can be mounted above or below the front panel of Nova or Nova 2 to provide an extra 7 control pots. The FP7 features traditional faders with smooth movement and end stops. This allows for 5 endless bank-controlled faders on Nova and Nova 2 to operate as normal while adding the control of the 7 individual FP7 pots.

Adding the FP7 to your Nova or Nova 2 couldn’t be simpler. The control surface plugs directly into the RS422 connection of the Nova or Nova 2 through a USB-A cable. A RS422 connector on the side of the FP7 allows for accessories like Nova Touch software interface to be used with the FP7 at the same time. Additionally, on the rear of the FP7 is a USB-A port which provides functionality for a full keyboard or updating software.

“The Nova FP7 control surface brings a new level of functionality to the Nova and Nova 2,” says Glenn Sanders, President of Zaxcom. “With the FP7, sound recordists have greater control over their audio with a very compact configuration.” 

The FP7 must be powered through a 12v 4-pin Hirose connector. Power consumption is a nominal 50mA at 12v. The FP7 attaches to Nova or Nova 2 using two 4-40 machine screws and two standoffs. Mounting hardware and a USB-A cable are included. The Zaxcom FP7 is priced at $995 and is available now.
