Zoom H4n is the flagship 'Handy' digital recorder and replaces the original and groundbreaking H4. Zoom H4n may appear as a straight forward MP3 or portable location recorder, however it can function just as happily as a 4-Track digital multi track recorder. The H4n also features an inbuilt X/Y microphone and a USB 2.0 port for data transfer.
H4n is Zoom's most sophisticated handheld recorder to date and can even capture 4 simultaneous tracks, making it the ideal all-round digital multitrack. Zoom H4n also offers up a significantly improved user interface, integral X/Y stereo condenser microphones, a digitally controlled mic pre-amp and the ability to use both internal and external microphones simultaneously for 4-channel recording. The Zoom H4n offers superior, built-in X/Y stereo condenser microphones that allow variable recording patterns at either 90 or 120 degrees.
The Zoom H4n portable digital recorder has a large 1.9-inch LCD screen, an intuitive interface and an onboard reference speaker. In addition, Zoom has incorporated several of the most popular features from the H2 to the H4n such as Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) compatible time stamp and track marker functions and its autorecord and pre-record features so you never miss a moment. For musicians and songwriters, the Zoom H4n has a more user-friendly multi-track recording capability along with Hi-Z Inputs for recording guitar and bass, variable speed playback capability for “phrase training”, onboard studio effects and over 50 different guitar and bass amp modelling settings. Also, a new stamina mode enables the H4n to operate continuously for an incredible 10 hours on a single set of AA batteries.
The Zoom H4n is the most robust digital recorder yet from Zoom, with a rubberised, shock resistant body for improved chassis protection, all-metal microphone design and a built-in mounting joint for tripod and microphone stand use. The Zoom H4n records high-resolution audio at 24bit/96kHz on SD/SDHC media of up to 32GB and is USB 2.0. The Zoom H4n field recorder is shipped with a 2 GB SD card, wind screen, mic clip adapter, AC adapter, USB cable, protective case and Cubase LE recording software. An optional remote control (The Zoom RC-04) is also available.
