F8 Control is an app that enables remote control of the ZOOM F8.
With it, you can use an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch (5th generation and later) as a wireless remote controller for an F8.
In addition to the fundamental operations of starting/stopping recording/playback and searching forward/backward, this app allows the adjustment of trim levels and mixer pan and fader settings.
You can also use it to monitor input levels, timecode information and remaining battery charge.
Moreover, using this app, you can input characters from the iOS device to edit file names and add metadata as well as transfer date and time information for use when recording.
■ Create monitor mixes easily
-Using the mixer screen that supports multi-touch, you can easily create monitor mixes as though using a traditional mixer.
■ Control an F8 that is inside a protective case
-During field recording, you can check and control levels using the device in your hand without needing to look into the protective case on the F8.
■ Input metadata
-Using the iOS device keyboard, you can input all types of metadata. You can even type long entries without hassle.
■Set the date and time
-The F8 date and time can be adjusted to match that of the iOS device. This allows you to set the time accurately with ease.
What's New in Version 1.1.0
Released as the version supporting iOS9.
Well, it works on my 12" iPad Pro... but it needs more functionality. For example, how about the same metering options (peak and vu) that you offer on the f8. How about a track mute button? How about a track solo button? (I know, the PFL is a sort of solo button, but not the same as track level solo buttons the allow you to easily select which tracks to listen to.) How about customizable track names on the sliders? How about allowing the mic on the phone/iPad to act as a switchable room mic?
Etc etc etc. I also hit a bug that shows up randomly where if I have set the trim on the iPad for (let's say) track 8, then switch screens (for example clicking the menu button) I will hear a click in track 8 and the trim on the iPad track 8 will reset to the trim level set on the physical knob on the f8. I'm willing to pay for this app if zoom is willing to treat it like a first class app.
Needs work but gets the job done
Ive used this app in several different ways with my F8. I wish I could make markers or marker cues list. I once did a factory reset on my device & had to reinstall the bluetooth file too so make sure you have the file handy. Please update!!
While the app is very pretty, it is maddenly frustrating in that it is almost good and useful. New users to the F8 will initially like it. As time goes by and you actually try to use it in a production environment you will discover its shortcomings. There plenty of forums around detailing all that is wrong with this. Skip this version and wait for a real production ready tablet companion to the F8.
