About this deal

The home and rec option will only allow for monitoring while recording and while you are at the Home Screen. On my H2n I have noticed that when playing back over its internal speaker or using headphones there is a steady pulsing or throbbing effect, almost like slow vibrato!

You can also choose 4-channel mode which records both MS and XY simultaneously to two separate stereo tracks (albeit with a shared preamp gain).It has an SD/SDHC card slot that can hold up to 32GB of audio files, and can connect to a computer via USB for easy transfer. As far as connections go, it should be noted that they’re all in mini-jack format, which confirms the non-professional character of the device.

I don’t know how much battery it’s going to consume, but I assume that it will run all night (pre record constantly records but only keeps the previous seconds after it actually starts recording). Over the past thirty years, the company has built a reputation for producing innovative yet affordable products based on original microchip designs. Perfect for cityscapes, parking lots, noisy clanky environments, afterwards when you listen back to the recordings, it really feels as if you're transported back to that space, the simpler, stereo 2 channel handhelds don't qite deliver the same effect. Here you can change the Date and time as well as the back light, display contrast, battery type, software version and you can do a full factory reset. Is there any way of muting the external mics and for it to just record what’s coming from the sound desk as I wanted the recording of the band and not the conversations by the sound desk guy.There's an equivalent Auto-record Stop function, too; as soon as incoming signal drops below the Stop Level you've set, recording ends. Presently available in several languages including French and English, with over 700,000 registered members, AudioFanzine offers, free of charge, and for over 10 years, content and services in the fields of audio and musical instruments. I’m just trying to get this device up to speed, so that I can use it for acoustic guitar recording–my passion. Since it’s a podcast and you don’t need extreme detail in the audio, going with MP3 might be better since you can record for a much longer time.

Zoom H2 Handy Recorder - Wikipedia

A really nice feature is that it can be connected to your PC via a USB cable, which not only allows for quick data transfer, but also lets you use the Zoom H2n as an Audio Interface with the ability to record directly into a DAW. Combining all 5 of them creates the surround effect, which will be recorded to a single stereo track if you choose the 2-channel surround.We are likely to display advertisements from our own platform, from Google Advertising Products or from Adform. The normalize option will raise the level of the recording so that the maximum level in the file is 0dB.


In my setup, I could see the H2 as a microphone, I could see it in Zoom and other programs, but no signal would be seen. There's also a built-in speaker on the back panel for fast monophonic monitoring of the recorded signal without the need to make any connections. This is a cool plugin you can download from the official Zoom H2n site, it allows you to adjust the stereo width of the Mid-Side recording you just did. Spatial Audio: By using with a 360-degree camera, you can use your H2n as a 360-degree VR microphone for live streaming on Facebook and making 360-degree video forYouTube. And don’t forget to play around with the Mid-Side Setting and with the Decoding Plugin, you can generate some cool stuff with them!Two of them are arranged as an X/Y pair, while the other three are configured in an MS ("Mid-Side") pattern. I saw a post from two years ago about trying to use the Zoom H2 with Windows 10, and how it wouldn't work, chalking it up to using USB 3.
