I'd be curious about aluminum knobs for the F8.

 

I bought the printed ones https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313&_nkw=zoom+f8+knobs&_sacat=0 and found them to be unusable for a double row mixer. They take up too much space and make it near impossible to use the push buttons and the faders themselves.  Low profile and smaller diameter might work.

 

For a single row of faders it's probably not a problem.

 

Kishor Chauhan did this (SD knobs, no longer available), but he never explained how he did it. Zoom faders don't have shafts.

Same, those would be awesome!

I can make those knobs. But I'm not willing to pull the knobs off until I know how to do it. I tried pulling them off, but after pulling a certain amount, I feared any stronger would break something. Zoom says they come off, but they are not designed to do so, whatever that means. So I need either someone to explain how they come  off or a victim willing to try it.

Ouch! Definitely different than my F4. They have shafts. Looks like the knob may just be "glued" to that little ribbed bit.

I've been on a college football show this fall and here is my setup. Nova with 2 plug on zmt3hm to Sennheiser MD46 and a lectro T4 for IFB feed with IFBlues to our host/guests and producer. I'm hardlined to camera and I use a humkiller with the IFB feed from the truck. nothing crazy, just nice and simple.

What is a "humkiller"?

An inline transformer used to isolate his bag from any ground loop problems coming from the production truck.

This is one from Sescom: https://www.sescom.com/products/view/product/productslug/il-19-pro-audio-hum-eliminator-inline-with-isolation

 

Its a must have for every sound mixer. you never know when that little thingy can save your butt.

Ahhh okay, I usually only use a wireless camera link. But good to know.

 

its not necessarily for camera sends, its more of what is being sent to you. if you ever need to take a PA feed or plug into a mult box, I always use this. not saying Ive used it a lot over the years, but its always in my kit in my "problem solvers" pouch. depends a lot on your style of work, but do this long enough and you'll plug into something that'll give you a hum and you'll need it.
