Product Description

Here's what Zoom say about the F8n Pro Multitrack Field Recorder

After over 3 years of great success with the ever-popular F8n, Zoom are proud to announce a new flagship model among Zoom professional field recorders, the Zoom F8n Pro. The F-Series has already set a major benchmark with its professional-level devices available for accessible prices. The new F8n Pro maintains the winning form factor of the F8n while introducing expanded advanced features and hardware upgrades aimed at professionals. The new F8n Pro will now support 32-Bit Float Recording introduced for the first time with the popular F6. The F8n Pro features 8 discrete inputs, 10 tracks of simultaneously recording, dual A/D converters, up to 192 kHz sampling frequency, low-noise preamps with up to 75dB gain, +4dB In/Out levels, integrate advanced look-ahead hybrid limiters, Zoom’s original AutoMix™ function, accurate 0.2ppm timecode, three power options and redundant recording on 2 SD cards thus proofing its professional appeal. Furthermore, it can be used as an 32-bit float/96kHz USB audio interface with 8 inputs and 4 outputs and allows simultaneous recording on the internal SD cards and via USB. The extensive support for Ambisonics Audio and the ability to externally control the F8n Pro via the separately sold F-Control - or wirelessly via the F8n Pro Control App for Android or iOS make the F8n Pro an indispensable tool for all professional filmmakers and the new secret weapon on every set. The F8n Pro will be available in Q2 2022.

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 capture 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 / Android.

SIX SECONDS OF AUDIO

The pre-record function allows you to capture up to 6 seconds of audio before you hit the RECORD button, guaranteeing you never miss a take.

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 (for iOS / for Android) lets you visually monitor signals, adjust levels, trigger transport controls, enter metadata and more from your Android device, iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth.

360º AUDIO

The F8n Pro’s Ambisonics mode offers precision A-to-B decoding and balanced gain linking, enabling you to capture spatial audio for VR, AR and more.
