Zooms 4-track Palm Recorder Updated
What a beauty (click to enlarge)

A nice person at Samson (for tis they that handle Zoom) sent us this new image of the diminuative H4 recorder from Zoom. We first saw a prototype at Summer NAMM and were wowed by its features - 'course until we actually have one on our hands we cant be sure (hint, hint!). But the H4 has been improved – even before it’s release! Now the H4 features two, high-quality electret condenser mics on the top of the unit configure as X-Y for stereo field recording as well as a couple of combi XLR/jack inputs. Capable of 24-bit 96kHz recording, with built-in amp and guitar effects models, the unit also doubles as a computer audio interface with it’s USB interfaces. And whats more, it comes with Cubase LE so you can jump right in and start making multi-track music, the moment you get it out of the box.
    Other nifty features include:
  • Fits in the palm of your hand
  • Records 24-bit/96 kHz digital audio as well as MP3 format with bitrates up to 320kbps
  • Two studio quality X/Y pattern condenser microphones for true stereo recording
  • Onboard studio effects compression, limiting and mic modeling
  • 1/8-inch headphone jack provided for monitoring
  • 128MB Secure Digital (SD) card included.
  • Using a 2GB SD memory card provides 380 minutes of recording with CD Quality sound

  • USB mass-storage interface
  • Four hours of continuous recording operation from 2 AA batteries
  • Back-lit, 128×64 pixel LCD provides the visual interface
