Zoom F8

Zoom F8 Untuk Filmmaking dan Sound Design

 

Keunggulan dalam video telah membuat pembuatan film bisa diakses di mana saja. Tetapi akses perangkat audio professional ini belum sejalan. Jajaran recorder, dengan fitur canggih seperti time code, sebagian besar sudah bisa didapat. Sampai sekarang.

F8 dibuat untuk filmmaker dan desainer sound yang serius. Dengan 8-input/10-track recording, super low-noise preamp, dan mendukung 24-bit/192 kHz audio, F8 mampu menangkap audio berkualitas tinggi.
