Our Zoom H4N PRO Recorder Review
A portable, lightweight and handheld gadget that can be used easily for a guaranteed quality output. The Zoom H4 Pro comes in black and silver that looks simply stunning.
With reengineered XY features, this gadget can record up to four channels simultaneously at adjustable professional-grade quality audio. The features it brings is versatility because the quality the FX processor makes for audio recordings of guitar or bass is superb for a very professional sound, which makes it ideal for music. For this device, the memory can be expanded to a good 32GB, which ensures maximum content, although the adjustable quality also adds the choice between quality and quantity. Adding to the choices, the microphone features three recording modes, which can be four-channel, stereo and multitrack recording, all of which are powered by just two AA batteries while having an incredible battery life. The backlit 2-inch LCD screen displays details about the recordings and the buttons can all be used efficiently for use, while the microphones in the device can record up to a surprisingly loud 140dB SPL. Moreover, the features include the addition of two XLR outputs that will ensure quality recording and efficient use.
All these stunning features make the device stand out, with customers that are happy with the professional sound quality it provides as well as the portability and functionality. Many users are pleased with this device and it actually can be used in various settings effectively, but it’s simply ideal for recording music. The only problem is the awkward design and how it feels during use, but that barely matters when having a device that can record utterly perfect audio and the device is highly recommended for use.
