  1. ZaxCom Deva 24

    Zaxcom introduces the new Deva 24. Functionality Deva 24 introduces a completely new recording and mixing system that delivers unsurpassed audio quality and control. Based on its award-winning predecessors, Deva 24 integrates 24 track recording with versatile input/output routing, ZaxNet, NeverClip, PowerRoll and MixAhead with a fast, intuitive touch screen interface. Connectivity Deva 24 features 16 analog inputs, 12 are switchable mic or line level, each with adjustable limiter, high pass filter, input delay and 48V phantom power. NeverClip preamps provide 136 dB of dynamic range. Four additional line level inputs can be used as returns. 24 input channels of AES are available, 16 support AES42. With sample rate conversion, each input allows for a different sample-rate. Deva 24 accepts any unlocked AES signal with a sampling-rate of 32 to 192 kHz. The dynamic range of the sample-rate conversion is 124 dB. 10 output busses provide routing flexibility through four XLR, three TA-5M and three 3.5mm connectors. Outputs feature delay settings, level attenuation and assignable output names. 12 direct output channels of AES offers a processor independent feed to a backup recording system. There are additional connections for timecode, external slate mic and redundant power. USB slots connect Deva 24 to the Mix-16, Oasis and RX-12. Recording Audio can be recorded to three media simultaneously. An internal 2.5” SSD (1TB max capacity) is the primary media paired with two compact flash (CF) card slots. Files are recorded as MARF II, a lossless fault tolerant recording format to the internal drive and as Broadcast Wave files (BWF) to the CF cards. The CF card slots can record individually or simultaneously in 16 bit or 24 bit formats. An eSATA port provides an external hard drive (SSD or HDD) option that takes the place of a single CF card slot. Mixing 12 rotary faders can be assigned to act as a fader, input trim knob or a ZaxNet control knob. Deva 24 has a three band equalizer for each input where low shelf, peaking, and high shelf can be adjusted. The rotary encoder allows you to adjust the compressor settings, input trim and invert the phase of an input. 8 tracks provide an infinite mix of all Deva 24 inputs, while 16 tracks are dedicated to ISO routing. Any of the 16 analog or 24 digital inputs can be assigned to an ISO track as either pre or post fader. Combining Deva 24 with a Mix-16 or Oasis control surface offers a seamless integration for the sound recordist. Only a single USB cable is needed to link the Mix-16 or Oasis to Deva 24. Simply connect and go. Touchscreen Deva 24 touts a detachable front panel interface with a touchscreen menu system that’s fast, easy to learn and reliable. Connecting a compatible MAC or PC allows both hardware and software components to be controlled remotely through the Deva 24 GUI by a computer mouse or Deva 24. The remote computer keyboard can be used to enter metadata. A USB cable provides the connection. Advanced Features ZaxNet, PowerRoll and MixAhead provide advantageous tools for the sound recordist. ZaxNet provides remote control over Zaxcom Digital Recording Wireless transmitters through a 2.4 Ghz RF signal. Pre-amp gain, frequency, output power and record/playback/stop functions can be adjusted without needing to approach the talent. ZaxNet is supported by an IFB200 connected to Deva 24. PowerRoll allows ZaxNet controlled transmitters to increase its output power level when Deva 24 goes into record and then decrease its output level when recording stops. This conserves battery power on the transmitters. MixAhead eliminates errors in human reaction time. Users can select a time up to 250 milliseconds (ms) for audio in the console to be delayed. Adding the extra time allows you to hear the audio first and then have time to react.

  5. Cleaning Audio from Interviews

    Here is a good discussion on cleaning audio on Gearslutz.,
  6. On some low budget interviews. you may have some muffled voice, room noise reflections and AC or some other machine noise. Here are some ways to correct these. Removing Continuous background noise with Audacity, a free Open Source software. Saving dull dialogue. Sometimes the mic will be too far away from the speaker and the resulting audio can be dull, full of room boominess. This is a nice tutorial to fix it.

  9. This is an excellent resource here from Jonny Elwyn. Understanding the FCPx magnetic timeline. It starts fem the basics and has a comprehensive writeup and video tutorials. "Before we go much further it makes sense to translate a bit of FCPX terminology: Library = Project | Event = Bin | Project = Sequence | Primary Storyline = Track 1 | Secondary Storyline = Other Tracks/Group of Clips | Roles = Tracks if you had stayed organised* | Compound Clips = Nested Group of Clips |"
