Zoom H4n Handy Recorder - H4N
Its onboard X/Y stereo condenser mics are arranged with the right and left mics on the same axis. This design ensures that the mics are always an equal distance from the sound source for perfect localization without phase shifting. Frequency response remains uniform throughout your recording. The result is great stereo recording with natural depth and accurate imaging every time. Custom designed, onboard X/Y stereo condenser mics allow variable recording patterns at either 90-degree or 120-degree. Our unique design lets you rotate each mic capsule from 90- degree (standard) to 120-degree (wide-angle) stereo for the ultimate versatility in any recording situation. Now your recordings can be richer than ever before. Choose up to 24- bit/96-kHz linear PCM WAV files for audio resolution that surpasses CD quality. Or, when maximum recording time with smaller file size is desired, select a variety of MP3 formats to produce smaller files suitable for web or e-mail distribution. The H4n uses compact SD or high-capacity SDHC memory cards of up to 32GB. Unlike other media such as tape or discs, SD cards produce no mechanical noise, are not disturbed by vibrations and are readily available for your convenience. Our new, digitally controlled, high-quality preamplifier renders audio so precise, you'll sound like you recorded in a world-class studio. And this new preamp means you can make recording level adjustments on the fly. Of course, an automatic level setting function is also built in to optimize the level quickly as the situation requires. Learning new songs is now a breeze with the H4n's adjustable playback speed that ranges from 50 to 150 percent, while keeping pitch the same. This is also a great feature for learning a language, conference recording, and various electronic news gathering (ENG) situations. With its low-cut filter, the H4n effectively reduces unwanted background noise like wind or air-conditioning noise. A variety of compressors and limiters help to optimize the dynamic range while preventing distortion. For situations where you require maximized, continuous recording operation you can select stamina mode which effectively doubles battery life, letting you record continuously for about 11 hours in 16- bit/44.1-kHz linear PCM format. The H4n is the only handheld recorder that features built-in combination XLR/Phone connectors with phantom voltage source capability. With its Hi-Z inputs, you can record guitars or other line output sources such as mixing consoles. A separate external mic input supports plug-in power microphones. Proper miking is essential to making a great recording. The H4n is the only handheld recorder that allows recording on four channels simultaneously by using your own external mics with its onboard mics. Use its built-in mixer to blend the channels for perfectly balanced recordings of extraordinary depth and clarity. You can set your H4n to automatically record whenever sound above your designated level is detected. This ensures that you capture everything of importance while minimizing blank sections such as when recording a conference or lecture. The H4n can also be set to continuously record the most recent two seconds of audio in memory. Now, you never miss the beginning of anything you want to record, even when it begins suddenly. Even without external software, you can divide a recorded file at any desired point, right on the H4n. A built-in normalizing feature lets you optimize the volume level, and you can convert WAV files into MP3 directly on the unit as well. You can choose between single- song playback, single-song repeat, all-songs playback, or all-songs repeat. This is great when you want to use the H4n as a personal trainer for learning new music. A-B repeat even lets you zoom in on a specified section of a song. The H4n supports Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) used in broadcasting and other professional A/V applications. Recorded files carry time stamp information and you can set markers (cue points) during recording or playback. The MTR mode allows simultaneous 2- track recording and 4-track playback. With this feature, creating songs by overdubbing vocals and instruments is a snap. 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 H4n. The H4n has a number of useful tools that will be welcomed by musicians. The built-in tuner allows for quickly checking the pitch of a vocalist or tuning an instrument. The selectable metronome sound can serve as a guide rhythm during recording and is also great for practicing. The H4n even has a built-in reference speaker to let you check recordings without earphones. It is also handy to preview playback when selecting recorded files. A large, 1.9 inch LCD screen with backlit graphic display shows all the tracking information at a glance and makes it easy to navigate the functions of the unit. And its new rubberized, shock resistant chassis also improves durability while reducing handling noise. The H4n is now a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed device, meaning that files can be transferred to a computer at the highest rate available. Then use recording software for editing, create your own original CDs, post your recordings on your myspace page or send out your recordings by e-mail... the possibilities are endless. The H4n can record continuously for about six hours on a set of two IEC R6 (size AA) alkaline batteries. Use the supplied AC adaptor when working at home. The H4n also runs on USB bus power when using the H4n as an audio interface. A 1 GB SD card, windscreen, mic clip adapter, AC adaptor, USB cable, protective case and Cubase LE recording software are included. The windscreen is especially helpful to reduce wind noise. A mic clip adapter for attaching the unit to a standard mic stand is also included, or you can use the built-in tripod mount with a standard camera tripod.
