Zoom - H1n (Portable Audio Recorder)

The new H1n is the "next" take-anywhere recorder for every creator's gear bag. Just press record!

Zoom Your Audio Anywhere and Everywhere
The 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.

New Controls
With the H1n, we've redesigned the user experience. One-touch button controls make it simple to record songs, audio-for-film, lectures, podcasting, and more. And its new monochromatic 1.25" LCD display is easy to read even in the brightest lighting conditions.

The Connections You Need
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" headphone 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 sent to and from your computer. It also allows the H1n to be used as a USB microphone and a microSD card reader.

Impressive Featues & Functions
An advanced onboard limiter offers distortion-free signal up to 120dB 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 recording.

The H1n's Playback Speed Control lets you transcribe music, interviews and other types of recordings without altering pitch.You can also set the H1n to auto-record, pre-record, and self-time, making sure you always capture the moment.

Mark and sync your audio with the new tone generator that makes it easy to calibrate your H1n and camera audio levels.
