SNAMM06: New Zoom Effects and a Micro 4-Track Recorder
Lets have it now please

But forget that lot, the new Zoom H4 is the one that really got us going. While the rest of the world is producing 2-track compact recorders, Zoom decided to give us a 4-track reocrder. Personally speaking, that’s the one that really floats my boat. Recording four tracks at a time really opens up the options, got a little jam session going on, no problem, need say two mics and a stereo mix (one I’m personally interested in). The H4 records to SD cards of up to 1GB and features a DSP for compression and limiting.
  • Dual function 4-track and stereo recording modes
  • Two built-in electret condenser microphones
  • XLR input with phantom powered
  • High-impedance input for guitar, bass and synth
  • Guitar effects equivalent to Zoom G2
  • DSP with compressor, limiter and mic modeling
  • Bundled with Cubase LE
  • Includes USB audio and mass-storage interfaces
  • Records on SD media cards (up to 1GB), 64MB card included
