Zoom FRC-8 F-Control Mixing Surface For F8 & F4
The Zoom F-control designed for the location-sound recordist with portability, hands-on controls, and versatile editing functionality in mind. If you use an F8 or F4 Multitrack Field Recorder, the Zoom F-Control mixing control surface gives you total command over sound mixing and design in the field. The interface provides nine 60mm faders (eight + Master) and a full set of transport controls. Enjoy tactile control over trim, pan, and track arming and effortlessly monitor your levels with easy-to-read 12-segment LED meters.
Track Scene edit buttons for metadata entry make organizing your recordings. The unit connects to the F8/F4 recorder via USB for a seamless and uncluttered setup, while an additional USB port lets you connect an external keyboard to quickly enter metadata while out in the field. An included 1/4" stereo cable connects the F8/F4 phone out to F-Control's phone in, so you can monitor audio via F-Control's headphone jack. You can also connect an external computer keyboard for fast entry of information. Streamline your workflow with three user-programmable buttons and a dedicated time code button. When combined with your F8 or F4, the Zoom F-Control creates a top-shelf mobile recording rig.
The durable metal chassis is robust enough to go anywhere and is small and light enough to fit into gear bags and backpacks. The F-Control can be powered by an optional DC power supply or via the included four AA batteries. Additionally, the unit can be USB-powered when using the F4 (not available with the F8). The F-Control ships with a stereo audio cable and a USB cable.
