The Zoom F8n Pro MultiTrack Field Recorder captures full dynamic range using 32-bit float technology. 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. 

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. 

Zoom AutoMix lets you keep your eyes on the action by automatically adjusting the levels of your mix to reduce ambient sound.
