A nice person at Samson (for tis they that handle Zoom) sent us this new image of the diminuative H4 recorder from Zoom.
We first saw a prototype at Summer NAMM and were wowed by its features - 'course until we actually have one on our hands we cant be sure (hint, hint!). But the H4 has been improved â€“ even before itâ€™s release!
Now the H4 features two, high-quality electret condenser mics on the top of the unit configure as X-Y for stereo field recording as well as a couple of combi XLR/jack inputs.
Capable of 24-bit 96kHz recording, with built-in amp and guitar effects models, the unit also doubles as a computer audio interface with itâ€™s USB interfaces. And whats more, it comes with Cubase LE so you can jump right in and start making multi-track music, the moment you get it out of the box.
Other nifty features include:
Fits in the palm of your hand
Records 24-bit/96 kHz digital audio as well as MP3 format with bitrates up to 320kbps
Two studio quality X/Y pattern condenser microphones for true stereo recording
Onboard studio effects compression, limiting and mic modeling
