The Zoom H4n Handy four track digital recorder fits in the palm of your hand and comes with 2 built-in condenser mics that record at 90 or 120 degrees!

Top of the Line

With the capability of recording on 4 separate tracks simultaneously, the Zoom H4n is ideal for recording live musical performances, interviews, podcasts, meetings, classes and seminars. The Zoom H4n allows you to record 24-bit/96 kHz digital audio, as well as in MP3 format with bitrates of up to 320kbps.

The Zoom H4n features 2 studio-quality condenser mics configured in an X/Y pattern for true stereo recording. This design insures that the mics are always equidistant from the sound source for accurate stereo imaging with no phase shifting.

The Zoom H4n makes it easy to record “high definition” audio with booms, handheld or lavaliere mics while gathering atmospheric audio with the onboard mics. The Zoom H4n also supports Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) for time stamping. The H4n also includes 2 combination XLR 1/4-inch input jacks with phantom power for use with an external mic.

The Zoom H4n’s recording ability (based on a digitally controlled, on-board preamplifier) renders audio that's so precise, you’ll sound like you recorded in a world-class studio. The preamp allows you to make recording level adjustments on the fly. Of course, an automatic level setting function is also built-in to optimize your levels as quickly as the situation requires.

The H4n offers a choice of 50 studio-quality DSP effects including compressor, chorus, delay, and reverb, and has an instrument tuner and metronome.

The H4n's multi-track studio (MTR) records at CD quality, 16-bit/44.1kHz resolution. Plug in your guitar or bass and use the H4n’s classic amp models to inspire your creativity and find tone perfection during your recording sessions.

The MTR mode allows simultaneous 2-track recording and 4-track playback. You can sketch songs by overdubbing vocals and instruments with ease. Level and panning can be adjusted individually for each track on the built-in mixer, and you can even do a mixdown right on the Zoom H4n - perfect for pre-production sessions with the band.

This handy digital recorder uses compact SD (Secure Digital) or high-capacity SDHC media; a 1 GB card is included. It accommodates memory cards of up to 32GB for over 15 hours of recording time at 24-bit/96kHz. Or, using MP3 format at 128 kpbs, get over 550 hours of recording time on just one card. To move your recordings to a PC or Mac, the H4n includes a USB mass storage interface. Also included are a windscreen, a mic clip adapter, an AC adapter, a protective case and Cubase LE recording software.

Cubase LE is the perfect 48-track digital audio workstation software for easy editing, mixing and mastering of your recordings on either Windows or Mac. Together, these features make the Zoom H4n Handy Digital Recorder the most versatile portable recording device ever offered.
