I’ve been hearing rumors that Zoom would be updating the Zoom H4 Handy recorder for a while now, and it looks like Inside Home Recording has the official news. The new version will be called the Zoom H4n, and it will have higher quality preamps, the ability to record up to 4 tracks simultaneously from the internal mics and the XLR inputs.
Here are a few other features:
- Rubberized, shock-resistent body
- Variable speed playback
- Support for Broadcast Wave Format recordings with timestamps
- Built in X/Y stereo condenser mics that will record at 90 degrees or 120 degrees
- Aditional effects
- Ability to record continuously for 10 hours with a single pair of AA batteries
