Zoom unveils the F8n Pro Field Recorder

4. March 2022| Zoom

Zoom introduces the new F8n Pro Multitrack Field Recorder. After over 3 years of great success with the ever-popular F8n, we 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.
