Zoom New H4n Pro Handy Recorder with Upgraded Performance and Features

June 2 2016, 03:00
Zoom unveiled the new H4n Pro Handy Recorder, featuring advanced microphones, high-performance mic preamps, and an extremely low noise floor, among the improved features and specifications. The Zoom H4n Pro is a high-quality four-track audio recorder and USB audio interface, ideal for music, film, and podcasting applications.

The H4n Pro’s state-of-the-art, built-in condenser microphones capture sound with remarkable clarity and definition and have been updated to handle up to a thunderous 140 dB SPL, allowing for distortion-free X/Y recording in even the loudest environments. The Pro’s two XLR/TRS inputs utilize the same high performance, low-noise mic preamps as the acclaimed Zoom H5 and H6 Handy Recorders, while the improved noise floor (-120 dBu EIN) allows for audio capture with less noise and fewer artifacts.

The new rubberized, ergonomic body is perfect for use in the field. Newly added locking combo connectors ensure mic cables stay secure. A headphone/line out jack makes it easy to send high-definition stereo directly to a camera, while a built-in monophonic reference speaker provides quick audio reference in the field.

The Pro records audio in both WAV and MP3 formats directly to SD and SDHC cards up to 32 GB. It supports 16- and 24-bit WAV audio at sampling rates of 44.1, 48, or 96 kHz. The WAV files are automatically time-stamped, making them Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) compliant, allowing precise synchronization in post-production. The H4n Pro also features three recording modes, built-in studio-grade effects, and the ability to function as a 2-input/2-output USB audio interface for PC or Mac and is bundled with free download licenses for Steinberg’s Cubase LE music production software and WaveLab LE audio editing software. With overdubbing and punch-in features, as well as studio-grade instrument effects and emulators, it allows creating songs from start to finish.

The Zoom H4n Pro Handy Recorder is now available in stores for $219.99.
