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 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 lets you visually 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.

POWER UP
The F8n Pro is well-equipped for long location shoots or remote fieldwork, with a variety of power options and massive storage.

  • Onboard Power
    Use eight AA alkaline batteries for 5 hours of power or plug in the included AD-19 AC adapter.
  • Alternate Power
    External 9-18 volt DC battery packs can be used with a 4-pin Hirose connector.
  • Dual Memory
    Record simultaneously on two SD cards, up to 1TB each, allowing for redundant recording.

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.
