Overview

The H4n Pro is packed with features that make it perfect for capturing audio for film. The onboard X/Y microphones deliver spectacular stereo imaging, and two combo input jacks allow you to use your favorite microphones as well. It also includes a headphone/line out jack to easily send high-definition stereo directly to your camera.

Unmatched In Concert
The Pro is perfect for capturing live performances. Capable of handling up to 140 dB SPL, it can record everything from ear-splitting heavy metal to bass-heavy EDM. Take a line-level* stereo feed from your mixing console and capture room ambience with the X/Y microphones to put your listeners front row center.

Podcasters and Journalists
The H4n Pro provides the essential combination of mic’ing versatility, portability, and superior audio necessary for impactful storytelling. With support for plug-in power, you can use a lavalier to mic up your subject for podcasts or interviews. Record time-stamped WAV files to sync with video footage in post-production, or embed superior audio directly on your video in real-time through a 1/8" stereo feed.

High-Performance Mic Preamps
The Pro features the same high performance, low-noise mic preamps as our acclaimed Zoom H5 and H6 Handy Recorders, with recording and playback at resolutions up to 24-bit/96 kHz. The improved noise floor (-120 dBu EIN) captures audio at lower volumes with less noise and fewer artifacts.

Built-in Stereo Recording
X/Y stereo recording covers a wide area while capturing sound sources in the center with clarity and definition. The angle of its two unidirectional condenser mics can easily be changed from 90 degrees for a tightly focused stereo image to 120 degrees for a wider image simply by twisting the mic capsules.

Inputs
The two locking combo connectors accept either XLR or 1/4" balanced/unbalanced phone cables, handling mic- and line-level signals as well as instrument-level signals. Phantom Power of +24 or +48 volts can be applied to both inputs. Plus, there’s a stereo 1/8" Mic jack for external audio sources, including lavalier microphones requiring 2.5 volts of plug-in power.

Outputs
A stereo 1/8" Line/Phone Out, with dedicated volume control, allows for headphone monitoring or connection to your DSLR, while the built-in monophonic speaker allows for quick playback reference. In addition, a USB port enables fast file transfer, firmware updates, and use as a 2-in/2-out audio interface for computers.

Three Ways to Record
STEREO MODE uses the built-in X/Y microphones (or external mics) and is convenient for recording live performances, acoustic instruments, dialogue, and more.

In 4CH MODE, you can record with the built-in X/Y mics and two external inputs simultaneously, great for getting live room sound and a stereo board feed at the same time.

MTR MODE (Multi-track Mode) turns your device into a four-track studio, with built-in effects, overdub functions, and the ability to work with previously recorded sound files.

Onboard Effects
The Pro offers studio-grade effects and emulators to enhance your recordings. Choose from a variety of effects, including compression, limiting, reverb, delay, echo, a low-cut filter and more.

There's an onboard metronome and tuner, along with dozens of amp models and effects crafted for guitar and bass. Additionally, you can loop playback and adjust pitch and speed independently, making the H4n Pro a perfect tool for phrase training.

Supported File Types
The Pro records audio in both WAV and MP3 formats. 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 accepts SD and SDHC cards up to 32 gigabytes. The charts below show maximum recording times for different file types and card sizes.

Edit and Record Software Included
The H4n Pro comes with free download licenses for Steinberg’s Cubase LE music production software and WaveLab LE audio editing software, representing a complete audio production toolkit. Create your own music utilizing the Pro’s USB audio interface function or expand your capabilities with Steinberg’s renowned audio software.

    Comments about Zoom H4n Pro Handy Recorder:

    I got this product in my tuition package from school. At first i thought it was just a really powerful recorder. Turns out you can turn this into an interface and even has two xlr mic ports with 48v phantom power. This is incredibly useful as you can use this for an on the go interface or connecting it to a shotgun mic and syncing it with a camera.

      Comments about Zoom H4n Pro Handy Recorder:

      I just bought this recorder so I could use it for my rehearsals and send the audio to the keyboard player who had to miss rehearsal. The built in speaker isn't very good, but once you plug the recorder into some speakers or transfer the audio files over to your computer, it sounds much better. The built in speaker is probably good enough for lighter, less loud recorded playback. I recorded vocals, drums, guitar, and bass. I still need to try recording my band playing at a gig to see how it sounds, but I am confident that it will sound much better in a larger room vs my tiny practice room that I initially recorded in with the band. Also would've been a little nicer if the case was made out of a slightly harder material than the plastic that it's made out of. Otherwise, it's a great recorder for my live band!

      Good recorder, don't expect HD sound quality however. Not that you should in a handheld.

            Comments about Zoom H4n Pro Handy Recorder:

            I have had Zoom H2n recorder for my choir recording. Nice with very good microphones with selective patterns, but it does not have an external power jack for extended message recording. H4n has a 5V DC input socket, where I connect a USB charger with modified plug (although dedicated accessory is available). I connect to the mixing console with quarter inch plugs and no worry about running out of juice. The back lighting can be set continuously on to monitor easily during the whole session. Kind of heavy side like a real pro equipment, but good for the sanctuary set up as it is very stable and easy to operate.

            Very nice recorder for DSLR video. I use it in ceremonies weddings and for band record live sound. Get stereo signal directly from FOH with XLR inputs and record ambient sound from built in stereo microphones simultaneously. Then mix everything at my studio.
