F8 Control is an app that enables remote control of the ZOOM F8/F8n.
With it, you can use an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch (5th generation and later) as a wireless remote controller for an F8/F8n.
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/F8n 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/F8n.
■ 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/F8n date and time can be adjusted to match that of the iOS device. This allows you to set the time accurately with ease.
The F8 version 5.0 has been added as a supported device.
Ratings and Reviews
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.
The F8 is one of the best mixer recorders out there. With this app, it's versatility crushes the other mixers hands down. I can use it in a car scene and be in the car behind the actors from pretty far away too! The sad part is though, this app needs an update please. I love this company and it's products. This app looks great, never bugged on me ever. I need a way to use my headphones in the app, and other obvious issues mentioned above. Besides that. Amazing app. Amazing mixer. Please update!!!
Great but needs an update!
Love the app and the functionality. Tho it would be nice if the fader adjustments were a little less sensitive. So adjustments on a phone can be made without making 6 dB changes at the tiny twitch of a finger.
UPDATE for the Metering on the mixer window is needed as it does not match the fader level of the F8: for instance there is always an offset and my fader level on the app will vary by ~3 dB from the fader reading on the mixer.
