Known for providing superb quality products at reasonable price, Zoom released its latest portable handheld recorder, the Zoom H4n Recorder. The Zoom H4n Recorder is pre-loaded with new features and improved user experience. The recorder offers longer stereo recording compared to the Zoom H1 that offers a modest 10 hour continuous operation on a single AA battery, and even better compared to the H2 recording that offers 4 hours operation on a couple of AA alkaline batteries. If one draws a comparison between H4n with the H2 Handy Recorder, the Zoom H4n Recorder is armed with tons of features that would satisfy the needs of a professional.

The handy recorder offers sophisticated recording experience with its new on-board X/Y stereo condenser microphones to four channel simultaneous recording. The digitally-controlled microphone preamplifier promises world-class audio quality, with easy adjustments on the fly and automatic level setting for quick level optimizing. Being broadcast-ready, the Zoom H4n Recorder is armed with time-stamp and track-markers, coupled with USB 2.0 Hi-Speed support that allows for fast file transfer. Since it also functions as a USB audio interface, user can record directly to computer, produce and edit music right away.

Boasting 24 bit/96kHz Linear PCM recording, on-board tuner, metronome and mono mix features, this mini but mighty recorder has integrated reference speaker for quick playback. Auto-record and pre-record features help create smooth and comprehensive recording, no more misses. For you who are looking to integrate live music and sounds into your record, the built-in M/S stereo decoder allows for additional microphones and Hi-Z inputs let you record guitar and bass at the same time. Studio effects such as guitar and bass amp modeling are included in the shock-resistant Zoom H4n Recorder.
