Some Make Sound. Others Make History. When developing the F8n, it was our mission to provide every sound professional with the tools to create something exceptional. With features such asAdvanced Look-Ahead Hybrid Limiters, Zoom AutoMix™, and mic/line options for both XLR and TRS inputs, the F8n is the next genera-tion of professional field recording.

A Recorder You Can Depend On. Every Day. "When you’re putting together a kit, you shouldn’t have to compromise. I don’t think there’s anything that I couldn’t do with the F8n."

We Stacked the Deck Advanced Look-Ahead Hybrid Limiters The F8n is equipped with Advanced Look-Ahead Hybrid Limiters that provide overload protec-tion no matter what comes your way. By adding a 1 millisecond delay, the limiters “look ahead”anticipating clipping before it’s recorded. Limiting is applied to each of the 8 channels simulta-neously at full resolution, with 10to20dBof headroom to ensure pristine audio on every take. Mic Preamps The F8n features a super-low noise floor (−127 dBu EIN) and high gain (up to75 dB). Mic/line levels are selectable for both XLR and TRS inputs. Zoom AutoMix™Meet your new assistant sound editor, the Zoom AutoMix™. This smart softwareauto-matically adjusts the levels of your mix to reduce the amount of ambient sound, so you can focus on what really matters – capturing a well-balanced mix. State-Of-The-Art Time CodeThe F8n utilizes a Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) that generates time code at 0.2 ppm accuracy, enabling rock-solid syncing of audio and video. When powered off, the F8n will maintain a 0.2 ppm accuracy. Time code I/O is provided on BNC connectors. Simultaneous-Recording The F8n can record toanSD card and your computer via USB simultaneously. And you can easily back up your files and stream live while recording.

Safeguard Your Recordings
Dual SD Card Recording Record simultaneously on two SD/SDHC/SDXC cards, upto 512 GB each, allowing for redun-dant recording. Three Power Sources A 4-pin Hirose connector allows the use of external 9-18 volt DC battery packs. Power can also be provided by 8 AA batteries or the AD-19AC adapter included with your device. The F8n can switch power sources at a user-defined voltage level for uninterrupted recording. Dual-Channel Recording The F8n’s dual-channel recording mode allows you to create safety tracks by doubling up the recordings from inputs 1-4 onto tracks 5-8. Tracks can be controlled independently, allowing you to customize each safety track with different gain, limiting, and more. Pre-Record The pre-record function allows you to capture upto 6 seconds of audio before you hit the REC-ORD button.

Louder, Cleaner, and Clearer Monitoring Volume, clarity, and immersion are equally important for proper monitoring in the field. That’s why updates have been made to the F8n’s headphone processing to maximize all three. A digi-tal gain boost has been added to minimize ambient bleed, which can cause comb filtering result-ing in poor audio quality. Signals can be freely routed to the left and/or right headphone channels, pre- or post-fader. Ad-ditionally, the headphone output can be switched to mono. You also can set headphone alert tones for low battery, recording start/stop, or recording errors

iOS Wireless ControlThe Zoom F8 Control App for iOS provides extensive wireless remote control of the F8n from your iPhone or iPad using Bluetooth LE protocol. Functions include mixer pan and fader levelsas well transport controls. It also monitors input levels, current time code, and battery status. When you’re finished, you can even enter file and metadata info directly from your iOS device. [Feature block 7]Zoom F-Control Sold separately, the Zoom F-Control is the control surface that no serious rig is complete with-out. With 60mm faders and clear channel indicators, the F-Control’s simple, ergonomic design gives you complete authority over your workflow.
