Focus on the Scene

When you’re working in the field or on set, sound levels can fluctuate often and quickly. The F3 allows you to adapt to your scene without having to set the gain or worry about clipping. In post, you’ll be able to work with your capture, regardless of extremely low or high levels.

When I’m on film sets, I’m often recording really loud sounds like race cars and weaponry. That’s why I love the 32-bit float technology. I can fit the F3 virtually anywhere and I don’t have to worry about my levels being off.”
