Brilliant Four-Track Audio Recording for Music, Film, Podcasting, and Beyond

The new H4n Pro features advanced X/Y microphones, incredibly natural-sounding preamps, and a super-low noise floor. You can record everything from the Indy 500 to the fluttering of a hummingbird with extraordinary realism.

The H4n Pro is packed with features that make it perfect for capturing audio for film. The onboard X/Y microphones deliver spectacular stereo imaging, and two combo input jacks allow you to use your favorite microphones as well. It also includes a headphone/line out jack to easily send high-definition stereo directly to your camera. The Pro features the same high performance, low-noise mic preamps as Zoom's acclaimed Zoom H5 and H6 Handy Recorders, with recording and playback at resolutions up to 24-bit/96 kHz. The improved noise floor (-120 dBu EIN) captures audio at lower volumes with less noise and fewer artifacts.

Built-in Stereo Recording
X/Y stereo recording covers a wide area while capturing sound sources in the center with clarity and definition. The angle of its two unidirectional condenser mics can easily be changed from 90 degrees for a tightly focused stereo image to 120 degrees for a wider image simply by twisting the mic capsules.

The H4n Pro provides an onboard MS decoder for Mid-Side recording with external microphones. This allows you to adjust the width of the stereo image, making it especially useful for sound design and broadcasting.

The Pro offers studio-grade effects and emulators to enhance your recordings. Choose from a variety of effects, including compression, limiting, reverb, delay, echo, a low-cut filter, and more.

There's an onboard metronome and tuner, along with dozens of amp models and effects crafted for guitar and bass. Additionally, you can loop playback and adjust pitch and speed independently, making the H4n Pro a perfect tool for phrase training.

Podcasters and Journalists
The H4n Pro provides the essential combination of mic'ing versatility, portability, and superior audio necessary for impactful storytelling. With support for plug-in power, you can use a lavalier to mic up your subject for podcasts or interviews. Record time-stamped WAV files to sync with video footage in post-production, or embed superior audio directly on your video in real-time through a 1/4" stereo feed.

Mobile Studio
With overdubbing and punch-in features, as well as studio-grade instrument effects and emulators, you can create songs from start to finish. The Pro also functions as a 2-input/2-output USB audio interface for PC or Mac. Launch your favorite recording/editing software or use the included Cubase LE to start creating.

I rarely give such positive reviews, but I bought this to do double duty as a field recorder and a mobile interface. As a recorder, it's quick and easy, and runs on AA batteries - sounds great with excellent stereo imaging. As an interface, it was simple plug & play to my Macbook. Best of all, it's USB powered, so no batteries or power adaptor needed for that job. This sounds like a shill, but it's real.

I have been involved in recording audio professionally for more than a decade. This Zoom recording product is excellent and reliable. I still have my first one that I have owned for about 10 years and it still works perfect aside from having to give a wiggle to the AC power adaptor plug. I would definitely have this Zoom recorder at the top of my shopping list if I ever do need a new one.

I bought one after much research. Use it for band rehersals and personal acoustic guitar recording.....the quality of sound through decent headphones or external audio equipment is quite amazing to my surprise....picks up sounds quite well with near studio quality.......no kidding. But is it worth 300$...? With a 4track recorder and effects and a amp modeler and you can plug in a 1/4" plug and XLR mic cable directly in the unit plus so much more .........yup!!! I love it!!!
