Product Description

The Zoom F8n Pro Field Recorder features 32-bit float technology for immense dynamic range that frees you from clipping and manual gain adjustments. Offering 8-input / 10-track recording, separate converters for quiet and loud sounds, and high-grade preamps with mic/line input switching, the F8n Pro packs quantity and quality into a rugged frame that's more than ready for filmmaking, production/location sound mixing, sound effects recording, and electronic news gathering

From the large, informative color display and user-friendly controls to the flexible powering methods, remote control options, and precision time code functionality, the F8n Pro is properly equipped to please novices and demanding veterans alike. Whether you need long-duration stereo recording for an interview, redundant capture of multi-mic setups for a video shoot, or Ambisonics sound files for virtual reality and 360-audio projects, the F8n Pro has the modes, resolutions, and media support to handle your crucial audio tasks.

 

Key Features of the Zoom F8n Pro Field Recorder  

  • Suits Location Recording and Film Creation
  • 32-Bit Float Recording Avoids Clipping
  • 8 x High-Gain, Low-Noise Mic Preamps
  • Records 8 Inputs & Stereo Mix
  • Ambisonics, WAV & MP3 Audio Formats
  • Supports Control via App or F-Control
  • Flexible Powering Options
  • Dual SD Card / USB Interface Recording
  • AutoMix Software Reduces Mix Noise
  • Precision Time Code Reader/Generator

Studio-Quality Performance for Discerning Professionals

The F8n Pro can accommodate all manner of condenser microphones as well as balanced line-level signals via eight locking Neutrik XLR-1/4" combo inputs. Eight studio-quality microphone preamps boasting massive gain (up to 75 dB) and ultra-low noise (-127 dBu EIN) ensure that your sound sources will be amplified with sonic accuracy. Plus, the F8n Pro's advanced look-ahead limiters anticipate clipping before it's recorded.

Zoom Mic Capsule Input

A Zoom mic capsule input on the F8n Pro accommodates Zoom's line of interchangeable capsules (available separately) in place of inputs 1-2. With mid-side, X/Y, and shotgun mic capsules to choose from, you can be ready to record music, dialog, or sound effects without carting an external microphone setup.

Configurable Recording Settings for Any Situation

The F8n Pro boasts a slew of recording modes and resolutions to choose from—record all eight inputs at a maximum resolution of 32-bit / 192 kHz, use BWF-compliant WAV format for uncompressed audio quality and industry-standard file compatibility, or use the built-in Ambisonics mode to capture 360° audio from a compatible VR microphone.

Redundant Recording and Pre-Recording

Track directly to an SD card while recording USB audio to a computer for safe, "redundant" capture of takes. The F8n Pro has dual SD card slots supporting SDXC cards up to 1TB, allowing high-resolution recording, even for long shoots. Record the same content to both cards or select different file formats for each card. The pre-record function allows you to capture up to six seconds of audio before you hit the Record button, guaranteeing you never miss a take.

Multiple Output Feeds

Outfitted with two TA3 balanced main outputs and an unbalanced 3.5mm submix out, the F8n Pro is a capable field mixer. Since the main and sub outs can be fed from different or identical sources, you can easily route to multiple devices such as a camera, DSLR, mixer, or secondary recorder. With a transparent and high-output 100mW per channel headphone amplifier tied to a dedicated 1/4" stereo output, the F8n Pro provides clean, efficient monitoring of pre- or post-fader levels, independent left/right signals, and alerts for battery and recording status.

Ambisonics Support for VR, AR, and 360-Audio

The F8n Pro's Ambisonics mode offers precision A-to-B decoding and balanced gain linking, enabling you to capture professional spatial audio for VR (Virtual Reality), AR (Augmented Reality), and more. Even while using the first four channels for Ambisonics recording, you can utilize channels 5-8 for other signals such as boom and lav mics or an alternate Ambisonics format. A built-in Ambisonics stereo monitor converter allows real-time monitoring of your Ambisonics recording. Download the free Zoom Ambisonics Player software to access user-friendly decoding and editing functions for your 360-audio.

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.

Precision Time Code and Synchronization Features

Whether you keep the F8n Pro powered on all day, or shut it down during breaks, rock-solid sync with video cameras, master time code clocks, or additional audio recorders will be maintained. Accurate synchronization is made possible with the F8n Pro's high-end time code features. Standard BNC jacks are dedicated for time code I/O, and a Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) boasts super stable time code accuracy to ±0.2 ppm. You can even jam sync the F8n when constant external time code isn't present.
