Zoom F8 8-track Field Recorder Kit w/All-Day Power


Zoom's foray into field recorders offers 8 lockable XLR/TRS combo jacks that provide +75 dB maximum input gain. The trim is not adjustable during recording, but the faders do allow a 12db gain adjustment while rolling.

Owner Notes:

Amazing pro-level features without the price tag. Record up to 8 iso tracks plus a stereo mix, with full routing to 4 output channels. Go all day without worrying about power with included NP-1 battery system. This thing is a joy to use in the field!

8x XLR/TRS Combo Jacks with +75 dB Gain
Up to 192 kHz/ 24-Bit PCM Recording
Record Up to 10 Tracks Simultaneously
Dual Channel Recordings at Two Levels

From the manufacturer:
The Zoom F8 Multi-Track Field Recorder is designed for professional and enthusiast recording applications on set and in the field, including music, filmmaking, and electronics news gathering (ENG). Designed to be carried by a shoulder strap or in a bag, the unit features eight analog input channels with lockable XLR/TRS combo jacks that provide +75 dB maximum input gain, and support for +4 dB inputs with an EIN of -127 dBu or less. It can record up to 10 tracks simultaneously (channels 1-8 plus a stereo mix), or up to eight channels when recording at the A/D converter's maximum 24-bit 192 kHz resolution.

Alternatively, you can perform dual-channel recording of separate files at lower volume levels to ensure you have backup recordings to use when unexpected loud noises distort the primary recording. A newly designed limiter provides up to 10 dB of headroom. The unit supports SMPTE time code input and output. Included in the outputs is a powerful 100 mW + 100 mW headphone jacks as well as the MAIN OUT 1/2 and SUB OUT 1/2 jacks so you can send the audio signal to a video camera or other device while monitoring with headphones.

The unit's internal mixing capability enables flexible routing, and the inclusion of individually selectable +24V/+48V phantom power ensures you can use your favorite condenser microphones.
