Capture Better Sound in the Field
Designed for high-quality audio and reliability in the field, the Zoom F6 multitrack field recorder sets a new standard for portable recording devices. You can expect great results with practically any microphones, thanks to premium preamps with up to 75dB of gain and a virtually silent noise floor. Time-code I/O is available to sync with other recording devices, and a headphone output delivers plenty of gain for monitoring your recordings. And for recording flexibility, you can record to SD card, use the F6 as a USB audio interface, or do both simultaneously. When you need a budget-friendly field recorder with a pro feature set, Sweetwater can highly recommend the Zoom F6 multitrack field recorder.
Use as an audio interface, SD card recorder, or both
The Zoom F6 field recorder offers a lot of flexibility, both in the field and also back in your editing studio. For onboard recording, the F6 supports SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards up to 512GB. You can also use the F6 as a 6-in/4-out USB audio interface with your Mac or PC. And if you want or need to record to two separate destinations at the same time, for redundancy or file management purposes, then you can record to SD card and use the F6 as an audio interface simultaneously.
Top-notch sound quality
Filmmakers and sound designers have long approved of Zoom's handy portable recorders for all types of applications, and the F6 sounds mighty impressive. Its mic preamps offer generous gain for your microphones, up to 75dB, with an ultra-low noise floor. The dynamic range is amazingly wide, thanks to 32-bit A/D conversion.
Your iOS device can be your remote control
Depending on the details of your recording project, you may want to tuck the F6 out of the way and manage it with your iOS device instead. Just use the free Zoom F Control App to gain wireless remote control, including recording and transport functions. You'll also be able to rename files and enter metadata from the app, potentially saving you time in the editing room later on.
