F6 Control is an app that enables remote control of the ZOOM F6.
With it, you can use an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch (6th generation and later) as a wireless remote controller for an F6.
Note: A ZOOM BTA-1 is also necessary to operate an F6 with F6 Control.
In addition to the fundamental operations of starting/stopping recording/playback and searching forward/backward, this app allows the adjustment of trim levels and mixer pan and fader settings.
You can also use it to monitor input levels, timecode information and remaining battery charge.
Moreover, using this app, you can input characters from the iOS device to edit file names and add metadata as well as transfer date and time information for use when recording.
■ Control an F6 that is inside a protective case
-During field recording, you can check and control levels using the device in your hand without needing to look into the protective case on the F6.
■ Create monitor mixes easily
-Using the mixer screen that supports multi-touch, you can easily create monitor mixes as though using a traditional mixer.
■ Input metadata
-Using the iOS device keyboard, you can input all types of metadata. You can even type long entries without hassle.
■Set the date and time
-The F6 date and time can be adjusted to match that of the iOS device. This allows you to set the time accurately with ease.
・A function has been added to show a list of available recorders when connecting a recorder.
・A function has been added to maintain connection with the recorder when the F6 Control app is in the background on the iOS device.

Works with Latest Firmware
Be sure your F6 has the latest Firmware applied and you’re good to go.
Changed my review after I figured out how to do what I want.
I left my old review at the bottom so that it might help someone else if they have trouble getting their heads wrapped around the F6 and this app.
To use the F6 as a USB audio interface AND use this app to control the mix do the following:
- system->USB->AIF with Rec to the on position
- system->Bluetooth->F6 Control->Connect
In Wirecast (or whatever) bind channels 7&8 to left and right input and unbind 1&2.
You can stream, record the production to disk and have the F6 save all the audio tracks to the SD at the same time. Sweeeet
__——————- old review ——————-
The App looks nice and does help label tracks. But I’m using my F6 connected to a Mac by USB as an audio source. So the app via Bluetooth can’t be connected at the same time the F6 is sending audio to the Mac via USB. You’d think that would be a sort of basic use case. After all, a F6 and this app would make for a really nice usb mixer.
The F6 is really nice and I’ll never go back to mixing on a regular mixer. But if some version of firmware and app could get this stuff to work right, I’d be lovin’ it even more.
It DOES Work.
This app absolutely does work. You just have to update the F6’s firmware. I connected and successfully controlled the F6 via the app (on IOS13) on my first try. The other thing to note is you cannot control your fader input levels on the main page of the app, you must click “mixer” to go to the horizontal oriented fader which unlock input/mix levels.
My gripe is more with the range and which it disconnects (35-40ft), and the fact that the full menu system is locked out on the unit while connected via Bluetooth. When connected you must use the app gain access to the full menu structure.
