ZOOM F6 - Getting the Most From Your Recorder

The ZOOM F6 is an incredibly powerful little recorder which even includes wide dynamic range 32-bit float recording capabilities. With this incredible feature set comes a bit of complexity and this course helps you get up and running quickly. We provide simple, practical explanations of all of the settings and directions on how to accomplish all of the practical things you need to make great recordings.

Congratulations on your ZOOM F6 recorder! Now that you have this powerful little recorder, how do you operate it and make top-quality recordings with it? In this course we run through the details on making great dialogue recordings for your film, voice over, or podcast projects. If you have no experience with other recorders, don't worry, this course is for you. And for those already familiar with audio recorders and mixers, you can use the course to quickly get up to speed on the ZOOM F6.

One of the headline features of the F6 is its wide dynamic range 32-bit float recording capability. This will eliminate the issue of clipping in some cases. But when should you use it versus a more traditional 24-bit workflow? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each mode? We cover this and get you up and running, making some great quality recordings quickly.

One thing I've always found challenging about online courses is that you generally cannot ask your instructor questions when you get stuck or don't understand something. To prevent that issue, we hold weekly Q&A sessions. You can even watch the sessions live or later. When you sign up for the school, be sure to check the box to receive notification emails for the Sound for Video Sessions. Or if you're already signed up, just update your profile to opt-in to the notification emails.
