Bundled together by B&H for your convenience, this F4 Multitrack Field Recorder Kit with K-Tek Stingray Bag provides you with two items integral to the art and science of field recording: a multitrack recorder and a suitable bag for carrying the recorder as you swoop the boom and monitor levels—all at the same time.

The Zoom F4 gives you 24-bit/192 kHz recording and an integrated mixer, four combination XLR-1/4" inputs, high-quality preamps with phantom power, built-in limiters on every I/O, a temperature-controlled (and temperature-compensated) crystal oscillator for timecode accuracy, and an easy-to-read LCD Display.

Indeed, the LCD screen will continue to be readable when you place the F4 inside the K-Tek Stingray Junior, which boasts a clear shield for such a purpose. You'll also get a rigid internal frame, a built-in kickstand, a shoulder strap, large-sided pockets for NP batteries, a built-in kickstand, and a bottom trapdoor for easy access.

  • Zoom F4 Multitrack Field Recorder with Timecode - 6 Inputs / 8 Tracks

    Designed to provide big Hollywood sound on an affordable indie budget, Zoom F4 is a 6-input / 8-track professional field recorder featuring super-low-noise preamps and timecode with pinpoint accuracy. The unit provides recording and playback resolutions up to 24-bit/192 kHz with impressive audio specs including an extremely low noise floor (-127 dBu EIN) and high gain (up to +75 dB), with +4 dB line-level inputs. The on-board temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) generates timecode at 0.2 ppm accuracy and supports all standard drop-frame and non-drop formats, as well as jam sync for external devices.

    The advanced on-board limiters provide overload protection for all inputs and outputs, which lets you capture audio in a wide range of environments. Limiting can be applied simultaneously at full resolution with 10 dB of headroom and features controls for setting threshold, attack, and release.

    The F4 offers four combo XLR-1/4" inputs, a 1/8" stereo input, and includes a Zoom mic-capsule input for recording six discrete tracks with an additional stereo mix, all at full 24-bit/192 kHz resolution. Additionally, inputs 5/6 can function as a camera return for audio-monitoring only for confidence checks. The dual-SD card slot features simultaneous recording to both cards allowing you to make a backup or split recording with all eight tracks on one card and a stereo mix on the other.

    Each of the four XLR-1/4" inputs offers a dedicated preamp with gain control, phantom power, a six-segment LED level meter, plus a Record Ready and PFL switch. In addition to the 1/4" headphone output with a dedicated volume control, the F4 provides two main balanced XLR outputs, as well as two sub outs on a single unbalanced 1/8" stereo mini-jack, enabling easy connection to a camera. All timecode I/O is provided on BNC connectors and the unit includes a variable-frequency slate-tone generator to confirm levels.

    The front panel offers an output button, which provides quick access to the unit's outputs, while the option button offers quick access to TC Jam, Trim Link, Clear Clip and other important shortcuts. An easy-to-read 1.9" LCD display is suitable for use in all lighting environments including dark low-light sets to bright sunlight. The on-board mixer not only provides user-adjustable level, pan, and input/output delay, but also offers high-pass filtering for noise and wind reduction, phase inversion, and Mid-Side decoding. The F4 ships with a camera-mount adapter, AC power adapter, and download codes for Cubase LE and Wavelab LE.

  • K-Tek Stingray Junior - Audio Mixer Recorder Bag

    The Stingray Junior from K-Tek is an audio mixer recorder bag designed for small rigs with a couple of wireless receivers and transmitters. Like its larger brethren, the Stingray Junior offers a dual full vertical frame that allows the bag to better stand on its own, while protecting equipment and providing full access to the sides and bottom of the mixer recorder to access connectors and media. The large trap door on the bottom and zippered side access panels complement the accessibility offered by the frame and further ease setup, cabling, and battery swaps.

    Over-sized side pockets offer plenty of room to store NP batteries, while Hook-and-Loop access allows cabling from side pockets into the main compartment. A separate front compartment can be expanded or closed tight and is protected by a rigid front panel. Various cable pass-through locations and smart storage points allow for versatility when using various equipment choices and recording environments. Web loops, Molle straps, and D-Rings offer plenty of rigging points for additional accessories and allow the Stingray Jr. to be connected by harnesses and waist-belts. The built-in kickstand allows the bag to sit at an angle when placed on a tabletop or when resting on the ground. The Stingray Jr. ships with an adjustable shelf divider, a shoulder strap, a clear shield, and a stealth cover.

    General Features
    • Rigid internal vertical frame for strength and stability
    • Side Pockets large enough to hold NP batteries with cup adapters
    • Bottom trap door for fast access and convenience
    • Built in kick-stand for table mixing
    • Collapsible front pocket with Molle Straps and hard protective front
    • Comes with Clear Shield, Stealth Cover and Shoulder Strap
    • Perfect companion for the optional K-Tek Waist belt and is fully compatible with the optional Stingray Harness.
