question

what cables are included? if none. What do I need? XLR CABLES: 1.) 12 pin to 12 pin and 2.) 12 to 3 pin breakout cable. If yes where are these XLR cables on your website. Costing a purchase for Classroom.Thank you
Asked by: Anonymous
No XLR cables are included with the F8n. The F8n does not feature any 12 pin connections, nor do we manufacture 12-pin cables. I would recommend looking into companies and brands that specialize in these types of cables for more information.

Syncing multiple Zoom F8n 8-Input / 10-Track Multitrack Field Recorder can be done via a timecode product like the Tentacle Sync E mkII Timecode Generator with Bluetooth 5.0. Each recorder could receive identical timecode input from a Tentacle device so that their files could be matched later.
