Super-low-noise microphone preamps
The F4 is equipped with our highest-quality mic preamps. Like the F8, theF4’s mic preamps enable pristine recording and playback at resolutions up to24-bit/192 kHz. Its impressive audio specs include an extremely low noise floor (-127 dBu EIN) and high gain (up to 75 dB), with +4 dB line-level inputs.
TCXO Time Code
For precise audio/video syncing, the F4 utilizes a Temperature CompensatedCrystal Oscillator (TCXO) that generates time code at 0.2 ppm accuracy—afirst for this price point. The F4 supports all standard drop frame and non-drop formats, and can jam sync to time code provided by external devices.Standard BNC connectors enable easy integration into any rig.
Advanced onboard limiters
Advanced onboard limiters provide overload protection which lets you captureaudio in a wide range of dynamic sound environments. Limiting can beapplied to all four channels simultaneously at full resolution, with 10 dB of headroom and controls for setting threshold, attack, and release.
Rock-solid build and lightweight design
A compact metal chassis makes the F4 both rugged and durable, and keeps its weight down to just 2.27 pounds without batteries
