Don't Be Fooled By Its Size

The F2 is incredibly small, but its audio quality will amaze you.

Audio On AutoPilot

The F2 features 32-bit float recording technology, allowing you to record the loudest audio signals without worrying about clipping. It will also record the quietest signals in beautiful detail. And the best part is you don’t have to worry about setting the gain. Just plug in the lav and hit record.

Please Hold

Once you start your recording, use the F2’s HOLD switch to ensure you don’t accidentally stop recording.

Lock 'N' Lav

Screw-lock connectors keep your lav plugged-in securely no matter the situation.

Perfect Your Lines

With the F2 actors can record and playback their lines to perfect their delivery.

The F2 Editor

The F2 Editor for PC and Mac allows you to adjust settings, format SD cards and more. Simply connect your F2 or F2-BT via a USB cable and launch the editor. The USB connection also makes it easy to transfer files to your computer. See the F2 Editor features here.

Narration and Voice Over

Whether a stroll through your garden, or the whispers and shouts of a dramatic reading, the F2 provides crystal clear recordings.

Power

The F2 can record up to 15 hours (14 hours on the F2-BT) with two AAA batteries.

Storage

Record on microSD, microSDHC, and microSDXC cards up to 512GB.

Lavalier Included

The LMF-2 omnidirectional lavalier microphone has a low-profiled design, captures high-quality audio, and includes a windscreen and lapel mic clip.

Recording Formats

The F2 Field Recorder gives you the option to choose the recording format that works best for your projects. Choose from 44.1 kHz/32-bit float or 48 kHz/32-bit float mono WAV files.

The F2 Is Perfect For Recording Interviews Anywhere

Free Editing Software

The Zoom F2 comes with a free download license for Steinberg’s WaveLab Cast software. WaveLab Cast helps you finalize your project with a wide range of comprehensive editing, mixing, and refinement tools.

Podcasting

WaveLab Cast connects you directly with podcast directories, such as Spreaker or Podbean. You can upload episodes quickly, plus directly create and publish RSS feeds.

Audio for Video

Import your video file and WaveLab Cast will automatically extract the audio. You can use the editing tools to lower unwanted noise, change levels and remove loud sibilants. Metering options allow you to build new tracks, fade-in your music, use EQ and compression. Re-attach the audio to the video file using WaveLab Cast’s export functions.

Field Recording

WaveLab Cast supports up to 96KHz audio quality and includes a high-end re-sampler. RestoreRig removes noise and unwanted sounds. You can assemble new files using the snap functions and crossfade options. Once you’re done, export your sound files in any popular audio format.
