Samson announced the Zoom H4n Handy Portable Digital Recorder with 4-channel high resolution audio recording and variable recording pattern capability. H4n offers built-in X/Y stereo condenser mics that allow variable recording patterns at either 90° or 120°. Audio quality is improved through its new digitally controlled, high-quality mic preamp and the ability to use internal and external mics simultaneously for 4-channel recording. A large LCD screen, a more intuitive interface and onboard reference speaker will take the user's recording experience to the next level.
In addition to musicians and songwriters, H4n has become the “go to” audio solution for filmmakers and video professionals looking to record high-quality audio while filming HD video with their DSLR cameras. H4n is the only recorder that makes it possible to capture audio with its two XLR inputs and get incredible stereo imaging with its onboard mics, all at once.
The H4n is also the most robust recorder from Zoom, with a rubberized, shock resistant body for improved chassis protection, all-metal microphone design and a built-in mounting joint for tripod and microphone stand use. H4n also includes a 1 GB SD card, wind screen, mic clip adapter, AC adapter, USB cable, protective case and Cubase LE recording software. An optional remote control is also available.
“We are extremely excited to be partnering with Best Buy for the Zoom H4n nationwide launch,” says James Tsaptsinos, Vice President of Sales with Zoom. “After years entrenched in the industry, we have learned a great deal from singers, songwriters, and filmmakers. The Zoom H4n combines years of knowledge into one universal solution for all forms of high- quality audio recording.”
