Great on Location
The H4n's onboard X/Y microphone delivers stunning stereo and its dual input combo connectors allow you to use your choice of external microphones as well.
WAV files recorded with the H4n—up to 24-bit, 96 kHz—are automatically time-stamped to ensure perfect sync with your video footage, while built-in multi-effects and MS (Mid-Side) decoding gives you plenty of options in postproduction. With the use of our optional HS-1 Hot Shoe adapter, you can even mount the H4n directly to your camera.

Instant Studio
The H4n transforms any rehearsal room into a recording studio. Connect mics and line level devices like electronic keyboards—even electric guitar or bass—and record up to four tracks of digital audio simultaneously, then bounce the tracks down to stereo or mono for additional overdubbing with no loss of quality.
Punch-in features and onboard effects such as compression, limiting, reverb, and guitar and bass amp modeling enable you to quickly and easily turn your musical ideas into full-fledged productions. You can even convert your finished song to an MP3 file for emailing and posting to your favorite social site.

Live Recording
Capture the sound of concerts, rehearsals, meetings, or lectures. The H4n's built-in X/Y microphone allows you to record natural-sounding stereo with a strong center image, and the angle of its two matched unidirectional mic elements can easily be changed from 90 degrees for a tightly focused stereo image to 120 degrees for a wider image. (US Patent 8184815).
In addition, dual combo XLR/TRS input jacks—complete with phantom power—allow you to use a wide variety of external microphones and to connect line-level signals such as a feed from a mixing board.

H4n Inputs and Outputs
Inputs
Dual XLR/¼" combo input jacks allow you to connect microphones, line-level signals, or even instruments directly into the H4n. Phantom power of +24 or +48 volts can be applied to both inputs, allowing the use of condenser mics. There's also a secondary stereo ⅛" input for the connection of microphones requiring 2.5 volts of Plug-In Power.
Outputs
A stereo ⅛" Line/Phone Out with dedicated volume control allows private monitoring over headphones as well as connection to the audio input of your DSLR—the H4n even has a built-in speaker for fast monophonic monitoring without the need to make any connections. In addition, a USB port allows recorded audio to be sent your favorite DAW and/or editing software and enables the H4n to act as a 2-in/2-out computer interface.

Pre-Record and Auto-Record
Pre-Record (for STEREO/4CH mode)
The H4n's Pre-record function ensures that you'll never miss the start of a great take. It automatically keeps the H4n silently but continuously recording in the background, all the time, keeping the previous two seconds* of audio whenever you hit RECORD.
*One second when recording at 96k or working in 4CH mode.
Auto Record (for STEREO/4CH mode)
When enabled, Auto Record sets the H4n to automatically starts recording at a level of sound. An equivalent Stop function can be used to end recording as soon as incoming signal drops below a certain threshold.

Onboard Effects
Effects can make all the difference. They make your recordings sound professional and polished, and can be used both to enhance audio and to compensate for acoustic problems in the recording environment.
The H4n offers a variety of effects, ranging from compression and limiting to reverb, delay, echo, and a low-cut filter for the elimination of wind noise, pops and other kinds of unwanted low frequency noise. There's also an onboard metronome and tuner, along with dozens of effects crafted especially for guitar and bass, such as amp models. In addition, playback can be looped and the playback speed varied without pitch change (or vice versa), making the H4n perfect for phrase training.

File Types
Audio recorded with the H4n is stored in your choice of WAV or MP3 format. WAV files are uncompressed and full fidelity, and thus provide optimum quality. The H4n provides support for 16 and 24-bit WAV audio at sampling rates of 44.1, 48, or 96 kHz. In addition, H4n WAV files are automatically time-stamped, making them Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) compliant, allowing precise synchronization in post-production.
MP3 recordings are compressed, removing unnecessary data so that they require less storage space and are easier to upload and download.

Battery Life
The H4n requires just 2 AA batteries—either alkaline or rechargeable NiMH. Battery life when using alkaline batteries is up to 6 hours in normal operation, or up to 11 hours when operating in STAMINA mode. Alternatively, an optional AD-14 AC adapter allows the H4n to be powered from any standard wall outlet.

Recording Times
The H4n records directly to SD and SDHC cards, up to 32 gigabytes. The charts below show maximum recording times for different file types and card sizes.

Using the H4n as an Audio Interface
A built-in USB port allows the H4n to serve as a 2-input / 2-output audio interface for any PC or Mac computer. Simply launch your favorite DAW or use the supplied Cubase LE software download, and start creating—you can even apply onboard effects to live incoming signal.*
*When operating at a 44.1k sampling rate.
