    F6 - Overview

    The ZOOM F6 - A New Era In Field Recording

    The ZOOM F6 is the first professional field recorder to feature both 32-bit float recording and dual AD converters, providing an unprecedented amount of dynamic range. It has 6 inputs with professional-grade preamps, ZOOM's solid precision time code, multiple power options, wireless control, rugged enough to withstand the most demanding scenarios and small enough to fit into the tightest spaces, the F6 will become your go-to secret weapon.

    32-Bit Float Recording
    Capture the calm and the storm! In the field, fluctuating dynamics can prove challenging. Loud sounds can cause clipping and quiet sounds can get lost in the noise. The F6 uses 32-bit float recording with dual A/D converters to capture both explosive and subtle sounds at full audio quality - without ever adjusting gain! In 32-bit float it can record up to 96 kHz, 24-bit up to 192 kHz or both simultaneously, providing 14 total tracks of BWF-compatible WAV files.

    Ambisonics Audio
    The F6's Ambisonics mode offers precision A-to-B decoding and balanced gain linking, enabling you to capture spatial audio for VR, AR and more. Download the FREE ZOOM Ambisonics Player software to decode and edit your 360-audio with ease.

    Advanced Look-Ahead Hybrid Limiters
    When recording in 24-bit, the F6 uses advanced look-ahead hybrid limiters to provide overload protection. By adding a 1-millisecond delay, the limiters "look ahead" anticipating clipping before it's recorded.

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

    iOS Wireless Control
    The F6's F Control APP lets you monitor signals, adjust levels, trigger transport controls, enter metadata and more from your iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth.*
