The next generation of Zoom's affordable portable recorder, the H2n is
their innovative follow-up to the popular H2. In the Zoom tradition
they've packed lots of features into an attractive ultra-portable device
that enables you to record fairly impressive audio on the go. In film,
broadcast journalism, podcasting, musical performance, song-writing and
rehearsal, when the budget is tight the H2n is a bit like the Swiss Army knife of a recorders. No
matter the application, the H2n delivers competent stereo recording in a
convenient, user-friendly package that fits in your pocket.
recording plus MP3 & Broadcast WAV
The H2n supports linear PCM WAV recording at 24bit/96kHz, which far
exceeds standard CD-quality. Use a high-resolution WAV format to
faithfully capture the delicate reverberations of natural sounds and
acoustic instruments. For web and e-mail distribution, choose one of a
dozen convenient MP3 formats. Additionally, the H2n supports the
Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) used for broadcasting and other professional
applications. With this format, each file can have a creation date/time
stamp and up to 99 track marks (cue points) to
help with file management and finding desired points in recordings.
Five New Mic
The H2n houses five pretty serious microphones. This design enables the
H2n to offer four unique recording modes: Mid-Side (MS) stereo, 90° X/Y
stereo, 2-channel and 4-channel surround sound. Using the H2ns Mid-Side
and X/Y mics together, you can create stunning 360° surround sound
recordings. Choose between 2-channel mode, which combines the Mid-Side
and X/Y mics, and 4-channel mode, which records two separate stereo
files, allowing you even more post-production capability. No matter
which mode you use, youll get well balanced surround sound recordings.
Never again will you have to
worry about losing recorded data to unexpected errors. The H2n has you
covered with its new data recovery function. Whether you experience
battery loss or an accidental power-down, this feature will
automatically restore your data the next time the H2n is powered on.
The APH-2n optional accessory pack includes seven tools for use with the
H2n. The remote control can be used to start, stop and pause recordings
as well as to add marks. The other accessories in the pack are a
windscreen that reduces wind and breath noise, a mic clip adapter for
use with a mic stand, a tabletop tripod with extendable legs, a
padded-shell case, an AC adapter and a USB cable. See
