Loads of features for it's price range!
Jay237921, 13.06.2018
I recently purchased the Zoom F4 via Thomann to use it mainly as a location sound recorder. It's robust chassis and metal body definitely feels secure and I assumed just by holding it that it would endure heavy use throughout days of shootings.

Putting it to the test, I found the noise level on the preamps considerably low which makes it perfect for dialogue and field recordings.
As for the navigation in between menus, if you're already familiar with Zoom products, you should find it easy to navigate.
The Zoom F4 features digital limiters to help protect incoming audio levels (not to clip your sound when recorded on the SD Card).
Analog limiters on each channel (engineers would understand why analog limiting would make more sense for this use) are available in other field recorders, however definitely not in this price range.
The F4 features 2 main outs (LR channels) to use for monitoring; very useful if you're using it as a sound card. It also features a decent quality headphone out.

In conclusion, I am very satisfied with my investment in the F4, and would definitely recommend it for a field recordist looking for decent sound on a budget.

Great product from Zoom
Paul567, 13.12.2018
I bought the ZOOM F4 to serve two purposes:
1, Record interviews in the field at festivals and concerts via a Rode Mic.
2. As an audio recorder for live sets and DJ gigs using line in.
For both activities it performs solidly and reproduces audio excellently.
All my uses for it have been succesful. The build quality is second to none. Rock solid and the F4 bag, which I got as part of a bundle is a joy to use.
The only cons for me were the power connector, it would have been easier to use a standard two pin in my view, and the pots are very small. Other than these two physical observations, I would recommend this for anyone needing a portable , high quality Audio recorder. ZOOM does it again. 9/10

The multitracker is a great tool for musicians of all levels. It really can be a ‘studio in a box’ replacing many of the components of a traditional studio.
