Hi,
I received my Zoom F8N today and yes I’ll probably need a bit of help to get 
the machine going but after that I don’t think I’ll have too many problems.
Firstly level adjustments it seems are controlled by analogue dials, one dial 
for each track.
These dials have pointers so you know what position they’re adjusted too, 
halfway is completely vertical.
The track selection keys are marked by a series of small dots each.
Turning the recorder on and off is different from all Zoom recorders I’ve had 
in the past and is achieved by means of a small button in the bottom right on 
the control panel which is rather cramped and contains quite a few buttons, 
dials and knobs so if you have big fingers this may take a little getting used 
to.
The sight of the F8N was somewhat of shock and is unlike all other Zoom 
recorders I’ve seen.
The F8N is in a complete metal housing and reminds me of a small car radio in 
shape similar to the one’s I used to mount in car dashboards when I was working 
at Hillman Spares all those years ago.
The design is straight forward, the front panel being taken up by the display 
on the left and the control panel on the right.
On each side are the various XLR/TRS inputs, outputs, USB socket and SD card 
slots.
On. The back are 2 BMC sockets and the Zoom Capsule connector along with a DC 
input for the supplied power adapter and battery door screw.
The Battery door opens on the bottom of the recorder for the insertion of 8 AA 
batteries for portable use.
The F8N sits proudly on a desk or a table curtesy of the 4 square rubber feet 
in each  corner.
So that’s as far as I’ve managed to get at this stage and I’ll write more as I 
progress.
