A H4n Digital Recorder

The Zoom H4n is a digital recording device manufactured by Zoom. It is the successor of the Zoom H4 recorder. Both models have two built-in condenser mics arranged in X/Y stereo position and two XLR microphone inputs that double as 1/4 inch phono jacks for musical instruments. Musical applications for the H4N include the ability to use the device as a multi-track (4 channel) recorder; the device also includes tools like a built-in tuner, metronome and effects processor for line-level instruments like guitars.

The H4n has a rubberized casing,[1] a larger screen and buttons that differ from the H4. The H4n (with firmware version 1.01) was released in February 2009. A firmware update to version 1.9[2] was released in October, 2015.

The recorder has become very popular as an audio add on to DSLR video cameras, as well as with podcasters.
