Zoom H1n Portable Digital Recorder

Capture stereo audio anywhere in crisp 96 kHz/24-bit quality! Zoom's next-gen H1 recorder features X/Y mics with built-in limiting, low-cut filters and more.

The Zoom H1n's X/Y microphones capture high-quality stereo sound, supporting up to 24-bit audio at sampling rates of 44.1, 48, or 96 kHz in WAV and various MP3 formats. With the H1n, Zoom redesigned the user experience. One-touch button controls make it simple to record songs, audio-for-film, lectures, podcasting, and more. And its monochromatic 1.25" LCD display is easy to read even in the brightest lighting conditions. An advanced onboard limiter offers distortion-free signal up to 120 dB SPL, cleanly recording the loudest of bands. A low-cut filter also helps eliminate pops and unwanted low frequency rumble.

The overdub function lets you add layers of audio, allowing for richer and fuller sounding recordings. An 1/8" stereo mic/line input lets you record with your external microphones or other sound sources, and supplies plug-in power (2.5 volts). Connect headphones via the 1/8" headphones output with dedicated volume control. You can also use the H1n's built-in speaker to listen to your recordings. The H1n's USB port provides a digital output of the stereo mix and allows data to be send to and from your computer. It also allows the H1n to be used as a USB microphone and a microSD card reader. Tone and slate generators make it easy to mark start and stop points for syncing audio to video.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I purchased H1n a few months ago and got the surprise of my life! Couldn't believe what this little machine could do and how simple it is to operate. With 'panoramic' natural stereo and unlimited overdub, this is the music maker's dream come true. And, compared to 'multitrack' recorders costing three times the price, there are no words...

Musical Background:

Been playing guitar for the better part of 55yrs. Performed in bands and enjoy 'sound tracking' experiments at home.

Musical Style:

Country and classic Rock.
