Product Description

Creators have found the H4n to be the most trustworthy field recorder available. Used by videographers, musicians, bloggers, ghost-hunters, podcasters, educators, and journalists everywhere, the ultra-portable H4n's 4 tracks of high quality audio make it an essential audio companion for everyone.

Onboard X/Y Mics:
High quality with easy to set selectable recording width (90 and 120 degrees)

2 XLR/TRS Inputs:
Connect mics, instruments, and line level devices for added possibilities

24-bit/96 kHz Recording:
High resolution audio

Expanded Capabilities:
Built-in effects, audio interface mode, and onboard speaker make it the recorder of choice

The H4n transforms any rehearsal room into a recording studio. Connect mics and line level devices like electronic keyboards—even electric guitar or bass—and record up to four tracks of digital audio simultaneously, then bounce the tracks down to stereo or mono for additional overdubbing with no loss of quality.

Punch-in features and onboard effects such as compression, limiting, reverb, and guitar and bass amp modeling enable you to quickly and easily turn your musical ideas into full-fledged productions. You can even convert your finished song to an MP3 file for emailing and posting to your favorite social site.

Capture the sound of concerts, rehearsals, meetings, or lectures. The H4n's built-in X/Y microphone allows you to record natural-sounding stereo with a strong center image, and the angle of its two matched unidirectional mic elements can easily be changed from 90 degrees for a tightly focused stereo image to 120 degrees for a wider image. (US Patent 8184815).

In addition, dual combo XLR/TRS input jacks—complete with phantom power—allow you to use a wide variety of external microphones and to connect line-level signals such as a feed from a mixing board.

Inputs
Dual XLR/¼" combo input jacks allow you to connect microphones, line-level signals, or even instruments directly into the H4n. Phantom power of +24 or +48 volts can be applied to both inputs, allowing the use of condenser mics. There's also a secondary stereo ⅛" input for the connection of microphones requiring 2.5 volts of Plug-In Power.

Outputs
A stereo ⅛" Line/Phone Out with dedicated volume control allows private monitoring over headphones as well as connection to the audio input of your DSLR—the H4n even has a built-in speaker for fast monophonic monitoring without the need to make any connections. In addition, a USB port allows recorded audio to be sent your favorite DAW and/or editing software and enables the H4n to act as a 2-in/2-out computer interface.

Effects can make all the difference. They make your recordings sound professional and polished, and can be used both to enhance audio and to compensate for acoustic problems in the recording environment.

The H4n offers a variety of effects, ranging from compression and limiting to reverb, delay, echo, and a low-cut filter for the elimination of wind noise, pops and other kinds of unwanted low frequency noise. There's also an onboard metronome and tuner, along with dozens of effects crafted especially for guitar and bass, such as amp models. In addition, playback can be looped and the playback speed varied without pitch change (or vice versa), making the H4n perfect for phrase training.
