Zoom F8N - 8 Channel Multi-Track Field Recorder
£662.50 ex. vat
The Zoom F8N is a multi-track field recorder that builds on the success of the Zoom F8. F8n is equipped with Advanced Look-Ahead Hybrid Limiters that provide overload protection 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 simultaneously at full resolution, with 10 to 20 dB of headroom to ensure pristine audio on every take.
The F8n mic preamps have a very low noise floor of −127 dBu EIN and high gain of up to 75 dB and there are switchable signal attenuators for line level inputs. The Zoom AutoMix feature automatically adjusts channel levels to reduce the amount of ambient sound helping you to capture a clean, well balanced mix. The F8n can simultaneously record to an SD card and a computer via USB making it ideal for livestreaming an audio feed.
The Zoom F8n can be powered by 8 internal AA batteries but there is also a standard 4-pin Hirose connector for an external 9-18 volt battery pack or you can use the included AD-19 mains adapter. The F8n can switch between these power sources at a user-defined voltage level for uninterrupted 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 with different gain and limiter settings.
