Zoom H1n has been designed to create professional quality audio recordings whilst retaining a very compact form. Aimed at broadcast, journalism and live performance applications, H1n has an inbuilt X/Y microphone layout with a maximum SPL of 120dB, to capture stereo sound with sample rates of 44.1, 48, or 96kHz with up to 24-bit resolution. An external microphone can be connected and 'plug-in' power is provided via a 3.5mm, 3-pole, stereo jack socket. This input also accepts stereo line-level.
Recordings are made to microSD/SDHC card as either linear PCM WAV files for higher resolution, or in MP3 format to maximise recording times. A micro USB socket is provided for transfer of audio files to PC or Mac. Once connected, the user can choose to use the H1n as a card reader for file transfer or USB microphone for direct recording or live podcasting.
Recording features including tone generator for calibration, auto-record, pre-record, self-time record, overdubbing, and one-touch record button make recording quicker and less challenging; whilst playback controls include consistent pitch speed control for easier transcribing, voice emphasize filter, and stereo bouncing functionality. A built-in 500mW mono speaker can be used for monitoring during playback.
Two AAA alkaline batteries give up to 10 hours of continuous operation; or an optional AC adapter may be used. The H1n can also operate on USB bus power.
