Zoom R24 24-Track Digital Recorder - All in one Recorder, Interface, Controller and Sampler complete with Drum Pads and Included Drum Loops
ZoomR24RecorderInterface

The R24 is a complete, compact and powerful portable music creation system with four key functions to accelerate your creativity: a 24-track recorder, an audio interface with eight ins and two outs, a DAW control surface compatible with Mackie Control, and a drum machine/sampler with pads and a loop sequencer.

Recorder - Simultaneous recording of 8 tracks and playback of 24 tracks - The R24's simultaneous 8-track recording capability allows you to capture live band performances, record drum kits with multiple mics and make other recordings of multiple sound sources. Play back up to 24 tracks of 16/24-bit and 44.1/48-kHz sampling rate WAV format files. You can use the UNDO/REDO functions to cancel the last recording operation and restore the previous state. When you complete a song, you can mix it down and save a stereo mix for each project in the R24.

Interface - Audio Interface supports 8 inputs and 2 outputs - The R24 can function as an audio interface, enabling direct input of sounds to a computer. Support for 24-bit/96-kHz encoding ensures high-quality sound. Eight input channels and two output channels can be used simultaneously. The internal DSP effects of the R24 can also be used when the sampling rate is 44.1 kHz. A dedicated knob lets you adjust the balance between the DAW playback sound and the direct input sound when monitoring.

Controller - Control surface functions for most DAW software -The R24 can be used as a control surface for DAW transport functions (play, record, stop) and mixing operations. You can easily move multiple faders at the same time, which is very difficult to do with a mouse! You can also assign the five function keys to various DAW software commands. Cubase, Logic, Sonar and other major DAW applications are supported in Mackie Control emulation mode.

Sampler - 24-voice sampler with 8 pads and 3 banks - The built-in sampler functions allow you to use audio files on any tracks as loops. Play the pads in real-time and create performance for an entire track by combining loops. Use the display of the audio waveform for visual confirmation when setting loop intervals. Use time-stretching to change the tempo of a file without changing its pitch, and trim unneeded parts of loops. The sampler and recorder can also be used together seamlessly, allowing you to also record instrument performances while playing back loops on other tracks.

Create your own beats with the powerful rhythm machine - The R24 has a powerful drum machine with 10 types of drum kits that use linear PCM samples. With the touch sensitive drum pads, you can program your own original beats and save up to 511 of them. The rhythm patterns that you create can be used just like the audio loops. You can trigger patterns with the pads and use them in the units sequencer to arrange songs. The 472 preset patterns include intros, fills, endings and other phrase variations.

Zoom H5 Handy Recorder - Four-Tack Portable Recorder with Interchangeable Mic System - New for 2015
ZoomH5HandyRecorder

The Zoom H5, Evolved recording in more ways than one. Zoom's products are constantly evolving to meet the needs of the creators who use them. With the H5 Handy Recorder, the tradition continues. The H5 provides four tracks of simultaneous recording and, like the flagship H6, it can use all Zoom interchangeable input capsules, allowing you to choose the best microphone for every recording situation. The flexible and powerful H5 provides everything you need to create multitrack recordings, audio for video, and state-of-the-art podcasting, broadcasting and electronic news gathering.

X/Y recording allows you to cover a wide area yet still capture sound sources in the center with clarity and definition, making it ideal for all types of live stereo recording. The XYH-5 X/Y microphone capsule included with the H5 provides two matched unidirectional condenser microphones set at a 90 degree angle. These are housed within an advanced shockmount that employs rugged external mic wires and rubberized material to isolate the unit from the H5 body and thus minimize vibration and handling noise.  The design of the XYH-5 also allows the H5 to handle louder sounds than any other Handy Recorder model: 140 dB SPL, to be precise - equivalent to the sound of a jet aircraft from less than 200 feet away - enabling you to capture sounds louder, closer, and cleaner than you ever could before.

In addition to standard transport controls (stop, play/pause, record, rewind, and fast-forward), the front panel of the H5 offers dedicated record arming buttons for each track, which double as mute switches during playback. A Hold switch disables all front panel buttons to prevent accidental operation during recording. The H5 can be attached to a camera strap or, with the use of the optional Hot Shoe mount, mounted directly to a DSLR or camcorder.

Just 2 AA batteries (either alkaline or rechargeable NiMH) are required for power. When using alkaline batteries, the H5 will operate for more than 15 hours, even while recording continuously. You can also use an optional AC adapter to power the H5 without batteries. The H5 records directly to SD and SDHC cards up to 32 gigabytes. Maximum recording time is dependent upon the card size and file type; for example, the supplied 2GB SD card can hold approximately fourteen hours of stereo 320 kbps MP3 files, three hours of stereo 16-bit / 44.1 kHz WAV files, or an hour of stereo 24-bit / 96 kHz WAV files.

Zoom H1 Handy Recorder Version 2.0 - Ultra-Compact Pocket Recorder with Professional Recording Technology
ZoomH1HandyRecorderV2

Zoom H2n Handy Recorder - The New Standard in Portable Recording
ZoomH2nHandyDigitalRecorder

Representing a new generation of portable recording, the H2n is Zoom’s most innovative handheld recorder to date. We’ve packed groundbreaking features into an ultra-portable device that allows you to record pristine audio anywhere you go.

No matter the application, the H2n brings the very best in stereo recording to a convenient, user-friendly package that fits in your pocket. Zoom H2n Handy Recorder. The new standard in portable recording.

The First Portable Mid-Side Recorder - The H2n is the first handheld recorder to offer Mid-Side stereo recording, a technique used for many years in film and broadcast, where ambience and surrounding noise are crucial. Mid-Side recording combines a uni-directional Mid mic that captures sound directly in front of you and a bi-directional Side mic that captures sound from your left and right. By increasing or decreasing the level of the Side mic, you can control the width of the stereo field, which gives you incredible flexibility over your recordings. If you record in RAW mode, you can even adjust the stereo width after recording.

But the H2n doesn't stop there. The H2n's onboard 90° X/Y stereo condenser mics are arranged with the right and left mics on the same axis. This design ensures that the mics are always equidistant from the sound source for perfect localization and no phase shifting. The result is brilliant stereo recording with natural depth and accurate imaging.

Using the H2n's 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, you'll get perfectly balanced, surround sound recordings.

With its newly-designed user interface, the H2n is incredibly easy to use. Critical controls are right at your fingertips and make studio-quality recording a breeze. The H2n provides over 20 hours of continuous operation on just two standard AA alkaline batteries.

Bigger & Brighter - The 1.8-inch backlit LCD display (128 x 64 resolution) provides crystal-clear monitoring and makes it simple to navigate all of the unit's functions, with a built-in reference speaker letting you know your recordings have been captured.

Zoom H4n Handheld Digital Recorder - World Class Recording for Everyone
ZoomH4nHandyRecorder

Turn your world into a world-class recording studio with the Zoom H4n, the next level of portable recording from Zoom. The Zoom H4N Digital Handheld Recorder is Zoom's most sophisticated handheld recorder to date. The H4n offers up a significantly improved user interface, integral X/Y stereo condenser microphones, a digitally controlled mic pre-amp and the ability to use both internal and external microphones simultaneously for 4-channel recording.

The Zoom H4N offers superior, built-in X/Y stereo condenser microphones that allow variable recording patterns at either 90° or 120°. The Zoom H4n portable digital recorder has a large 1.9 inch LCD screen, an intuitive interface and an onboard reference speaker.

In addition, Zoom has incorporated several of the most popular features from the H2 to the H4n such as Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) compatible time stamp and track marker functions and its autorecord and pre-record features so you never miss a moment.

High Resolution, 24-bit/96-kHz Linear PCM Recording - Choose up to 24-bit/96-kHz linear PCM WAV files for audio resolution that surpasses CD quality. Or, when maximum recording time with smaller file size is desired, select a variety of MP3 formats to produce smaller files suitable for web or e-mail distribution.

Secure your digital memories on SD and SDHC cards - The H4n uses compact SD or high-capacity SDHC memory cards of up to 32GB. Unlike other media such as tape or discs, SD cards produce no mechanical noise, are not disturbed by vibrations and are readily available for your convenience.

Combined XLR/Phone Connectors for direct Mic or Guitar input - The H4n is the only handheld recorder that features built-in combination XLR/Phone connectors with phantom voltage source capability. With its Hi-Z inputs, you can record guitars or other line output sources such as mixing consoles. A separate external mic input supports plug-in power microphones.

Why Four channels are better than Two - Proper mic-ing is essential to making a great recording.

Use its built-in mixer to blend the channels for perfectly balanced recordings of extraordinary depth and clarity.

Edit audio even without a computer - Even without external software, you can divide a recorded file at any desired point, right on the H4n. A built-in normalizing feature lets you optimize the volume level, and you can convert WAV files into MP3 directly on the unit as well. Versatile playback options.

Integrated reference speaker - The H4n even has a built-in reference speaker to let you check recordings without earphones. It is also handy to preview playback when selecting recorded files.

USB Audio Interface - The H4n also functions as a USB audio interface, letting you record directly to your computer. Use your favourite recording software or the bundled Cubase LE from Steinberg, so you can start to produce and edit music right away.

Power from battery, AC adaptor or USB Bus power - The H4n can record continuously for about six hours on a set of two IEC R6 (size AA) alkaline batteries. Use the supplied AC adaptor when working at home. The H4n also runs on USB bus power when using the H4n as an audio interface.
