Zoom F3 Multitrack Field Recorder

No gain adjustment required and no sound crack
32-BIT Float Recorder

The ZOOM F3 is a professional field recorder with two XLR balanced inputs, designed for "failure-free recording". Two AD converters, one for low gain and one for high gain (dual AD converters), ensure no sound breakdown even at high volumes and a high signal-to-noise ratio even at low volumes. The input signal is recorded in 32bit float WAV format, which can retain the resolution at the time of recording, and reproduces sound without degradation, retaining the original resolution even after normalization processing after recording. The combination of dual AD converters and 32bit float recording, combined with a thoroughly simple design that prevents accidental operation, means that anyone can simply press the REC button and record audio without gain adjustment and without sound distortion. The palm-sized, compact and rugged housing can also be velcroed to a boom microphone.

The new ZOOM F3 is the perfect solution for capturing the sound you can't afford to miss.
