Zoom F6 - Faderless

I'm in no way qualified to comment on this, the clip just popped up in a video discussion forum:

Dual A/D, 32 bit float I understand. What does "unity gain" mean in this context?

Unity gain just means: Gain=0.0dB. No amplification.

It sounds very much like the "true match" technology of German company stagetec. I think they had a patent which recently expired. So we can expect to see more devices using this approach.

With this technology in theory the analog gain just doesn't happen anymore, because the following AD converter has such a huge dynamic range it allows you to cover all gain tasks in the digital domain without loosing resolution. So it's crucial to build an exceptional AD converter, which has been done so far by combining two or more converters and calculating a higher resolution from their output (shortest explanation possible...)
