Zoom H4n Handheld Digital Recorder Review
Handheld digital recorders are great for capturing music on the fly at CD quality. But when you need pro-level audio reproduction, a handheld usually can’t measure up. Zoom’s H4n is an exception, delivering 24-bit/96kHz high-resolution audio in Zoom’s most sophisticated handheld recorder to date. For that matter, the H4n is especially guitarist friendly, with Hi-Z inputs, variable-speed playback for phrase training, studio-quality effects and more than 50 guitar and bass amp modeling settings.
For recording on the go, the built-in X/Y stereo condenser mics allow variable recording patterns at either 90° or 120°. Audio quality is improved through the H4n’s new digitally controlled mic preamp, and the internal mic can be used simultaneously with external mics for four-channel recording. A large LCD, intuitive interface, built-in tripod/mic-stand mount, shock-resistant body and onboard reference speaker make the H4n very user friendly. On top of all that, it records on SD/SDHC media of up to 32GB, features USB 2.0 and can operate for 10 hours on a single set of AA batteries. The included 1GB SD card, windscreen, mic clip adapter, AC adapter, USB cable, case and Cubase LE recording software complete the already impressive package.
