Zoom H4 – Handy Recorder Information January 19, 2007Posted by Jeff in Podcast Audio Equipment.
I got a tip on a portable recorder that I haven’t played with yet… but that’s no reason to keep you from knowing about it. You can read the specs from their website just as well as I can type them here, but:
The H4 features 2 condenser microphones configured in an X/Y pattern for stereo recording. It also includes 2 combination XLR-1/4 in. input jacks with phantom power for use with any external mics. It has on-board studio effects such as compression, limiting and mic modeling. An 1/8 in. headphone jack is also provided for monitoring. The H4 records on to Secure Digital (SD) media, a 128MB SD card is included with the unit. With a 2GB SD memory card, the H4 provides up to 380 minutes of recording in 16-bit mode (CD Quality), and 34 hours in MP3 stereo mode. It also H4 includes a USB mass storage interface to move files to your computer. The H4 provides 4 hours of continuous recording operation from 2 AA batteries. A back-lit, 128×64 pixel LCD provides the visual interface. An AC adapter, USB cable, windshield cover and tripod adapter are also included. At $300, this sounds like a great little recorder.
