Zoom H4n Mobile 4-Track Recorder
The "rec" button must be pressed twice to begin recording. Depressing the button once causes the button to flash red, setting the recorder to pause or be in "ready mode". Depressing the button a second time activates "rec mode".
The Zoom H4n Mobile 4-Track Recorder is a stereo audio recorder ideal for recording interviews, lectures, rehearsals, meetings, and more. This hand-sized unit can record up to 4 channels of audio at greater-than-CD quality. It features onboard true X/Y stereo microphones to pick up clear, natural sound without phase shifting. The mics can be rotated to select a 90° or 120° recording pattern for terrific versatility. The digitally-controlled preamp, combined with the high-quality microphones, allows you to capture Linear PCM audio at rates up to 24-bit/96kHz. The recorder captures audio to SD or SDHC cards with capacities up to 32GB. A USB 2.0 port allows you to quickly transfer files to a Mac or PC, or use the H4n as a live audio interface. For connecting your own microphones or instruments, the H4n features XLR/TRS combo input jacks with phantom capability. A 3.5mm line output and reference speaker are built-in for quickly reviewing your recordings. The unit operates on a pair of standard AA batteries and features a "Stamina mode" to provide up to 11 hours of continuous recording at 16-bit/44.1kHz. Other useful features of the H4n include variable playback speed, automatic and pre-record functions, a low-cut filter and limiter for improving the sound quality of recordings, time stamping, a metronome and tuner, and more. The backlit LCD screen and intuitive controls are easy to use, even for the recording novice.
