- Protective Case

The Zoom H4n Pro is a portable audio recorder and an update to the Zoom H4n. The H4n Pro packs a surprising array of features into a rugged, rubberized body that's more than ready to meet the varied demands of songwriters, musicians, filmmakers, sound designers, content creators, guitarists, bassists, and vocalists looking to produce studio-quality tracks on a single travel-friendly device.

Rugged & Portable, Handheld or Mounted

Meant to travel anywhere, the H4n Pro’s design is the gold standard in portable recording. 

The rubberized, ergonomic body with improved 1.9 inch backlit LCD display lends itself naturally to handheld use. You can also mount it to mic stand or tripod, or directly to DSLR with optional Hot Shoe adapter.

High Performance Mic Preamps

The Pro features the same high performance, low-noise mic preamps 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.

Inbuilt Recording

The X/Y stereo microphones pick up clear, natural sound without phase shifting. These mics can be rotated to select a 90-degree or 120-degree recording pattern. The H4n Pro provides an onboard MS decoder for Mid-Side recording with external microphones. This allows you to adjust the width of the stereo image, making it especially useful for sound design and broadcasting.

Inputs/ Outputs

The H4n Pro offers two locking XLR/TRS combo jacks, each with switchable phantom power. Additionally there is a mic/line input via the stereo 1/8” input jack. You can monitor your performance with headphones or connect to external devices using the stereo 1/8” line output with dedicated volume control.

Recording Modes

Stereo Mode uses the built-in X/Y microphones (or external mics) and is convenient for recording live performances, acoustic instruments, dialogue and more.

4 Channel Mode records with the built-in X/Y mics and two external inputs for getting live room sound and a stereo board feed at the same time.

MTR 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.

Supports Remote Control

An optional RC4 remote can be used to control the H4n Pro. It allows you to start and stop recording, fast forward and rewind through your files, switch the input source, and set recording/playback levels at a distance while eliminating handling noise.

Battery Life

The H4n Pro runs on 2 AA batteries, providing up to 6 hours in normal operation, or up to 10 hours when operating in STAMINA mode. An optional AD-14 AC adapter allows the H4n Pro to be powered from any standard wall outlet.

Recording Times & File Formats

The H4n Pro can capture audio in both MP3 and WAV file formats. WAV files recorded with the H4n Pro comply with BWF (Broadcast Wave Format). It allows for easy syncing and file organization for both musicians and filmmakers.

SD-Card Recording and Audio Interface

The H4n Pro accepts SD (up to 2GB capacity) or SDHC cards up to 32GB. Functioning as a 2-input/2-output USB audio interface for PC or Mac, the H4n Pro enables you to record directly to your computer.

Extensive Audio Processing

The H4n Pro offers studio-grade effects and emulators to enhance your recordings. Choose from a variety of effects such as compression, limiting, reverb, delay, echo, modulation, 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 an ideal tool for phrase training.

Music Production Software

The H4n Pro allows you to record, edit, mix and master your music with free download licenses for Cubase LE music production software and WaveLab LE audio editing software.
