ZOOM’S NEW FLAGSHIP FIELD RECORDER

Filmmakers and sound professionals know the importance of sharp, clean audio in storytelling. From the click of a seatbelt to the roar of an engine, the F8n Pro’s 8 inputs captures full dynamic range using 32- bit float technology.

CREATE IMMERSIVE AUDIO

With 8 inputs and 10 tracks, the F8n Pro can capture the most complex audio, expanding your options so that you can create sonic magic in post.

EXPLOSIVE AUDIO

32-Bit Float is a game-changer. The F8n Pro uses dual A/D converters and professional-grade preamps to capture clip-free audio – without ever needing to adjust gain!

MULTIPLE FEEDS

The F8n Pro has three outputs for external devices, headphones, and camera connections. You can keep tabs on your tracks pre- or post-fader, check levels, route signals to the left or right and set alert tones for battery and recording status.

FORMATTING OPTIONS

The F8n Pro records in BWF-compatible WAV formats up to 32-bit resolution and at sample rates up to 192 kHz.

BUILT-IN PROCESSING

The F8n Pro features flexible signal routing from all inputs to all outputs, phase inversion and Mid-Side decoding. It also provides high-pass filtering to reduce the sound of wind and other noise. Input and output delays are also available.

STATE-OF-THE-ART TIMECODE

Keep your tracks perfectly synced even when you power down. On or off, the F8n Pro’s Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) generates time code at 0.2 ppm accuracy.

STAY FOCUSED WITH ZOOM AUTOMIX™

Zoom AutoMix lets you keep your eyes on the action by automatically adjusting the levels of your mix to reduce ambient sound.

FULL METADATA ENTRY

The track name, scene names, notes, and more can be entered directly from the unit or via the Zoom F8 Control App for iOS.

SIX SECOND OF AUDIO

The pre-record function allows you to check your environment and settings, capturing up to 6 seconds of audio before you hit the RECORD button.

RECORD AND STREAM, TOGETHER

When connected to your computer, the F8n Pro can be used as a 8-in / 4-out audio interface. Record and stream in 32-bit float / 96khz while simultaneously recording to SD cards.

GO MOBILE

The F8 Control App lets you monitor signals, adjust levels, trigger transport controls, enter metadata and more from your Android device, iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth.

EXPANDED CONTROL

The Zoom F-Control (FRC-8) gives you more flexibility in the field. With 60 mm faders and controls for trim, pan and track-arming, the FRC-8 is a must-have for any professional filmmaker.
* The F-Control is sold separately
