Studiocreuse's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" bof"

Zoom H4nSP
concers before I recorded live with my Sony ®, but real-time transfer too long for me, the same time as the concert is
So buying a digital camera SD card and USB for fast:
Zoom H4n makes it very well, but the sound quality is not, noise and breath very important even plug in XLR and 24/48
I am disappointed with the sudden, it's convenient, it works fine, but quality preamp is zero

laurent_conte's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" of the ball"

Zoom H4nSP
bought used recently, but I can already say that out and this product is genial.

Both directional stereo microphone recorder, recorder line, monitor, sound card and USB SD card reader, it is the Swiss Army knife of computer music.

I use it to record gigs, plugs into the mixing desk, on my laptop in additional soundcard when I play on virtual DJ, and I plug it even on my Nikon D7000 for a stereo sound on the video (there Adapter for a plug on the flash shoe, but I found a bipolar screw to screw into the base planned for the tripod).

The only downside is that the batteries are a dirty trick s are the mode not put stamina, and stamina mode has plenty of features that are more accessible (save in mp3 instead of wave, register mode 4 channel, that is to say the pickups + lines at the same time).

Note: it starts quickly on a 1GB card, but with a bigger card it takes more time: I have a 32GB, ca take good good 1 minute to start up.

If you play an instrument, forget all the sound cards that exist and Take ca.

If you are playing live and want a mobile solution for you enregisterez take ca.

Avoid plugging your AC on nikon and a stroll down the street, except when Men In Black is a poster.

Lio0c7's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Great product."

Zoom H4nSP
How long you use it? For a little over a year now.

Did you tried many other models before buying it? not

What is so special that you love the most, least? The more of this product is undoubtedly the quality of what is recorded, the overall balance of the sound for a product as small. Also note the simplicity of the product if you do not want to complicate things a coupled large possibility of setting if you want a little digging. In this case, the control menu is a bit thick, but we can not have everything.

Also saw the hull to protect it during transport. It's solid and sufficient.

A small criticism, the subject deserved a pedestal to be placed vertically in the knowledge that he does not fall. The cone that can put it on a microphone stand is good but ... it still must have a microphone stand at disposal.

Preferred model of industry because if you just batteries, the budget can become so.

We use it with my band to record our rehearsals and have a critical ear a posteriori. I also use it for solo acoustic recording sessions.

How would you rate the quality / price? Excellent.

With experience, you do again this choice? Without a doubt. I was not expecting to have this quality with something so small and this price point.

I use the H4N for recordings of vocal groups and for my guitar work. No indication cons: his very correct, not complicated.
A small reserve: connections if you want to record from one console.

Stig's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a must have for mobile technician"

Zoom H4nSP
Use for 2 years
bought the US, with a 16GB card under 300 €
One thing to remember: the quality / price unbeatable
I worked with Marantz and Nagra, better and obviously more expensive but not the same use.

Using typical concert recording for musicians for the postponement or video
atmosphere + console output (XLR mic input focus, provide attenuator)

correct converters, microphones correct, but not at all flat, large corrections in the high end

defre2's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Ideal companion for a walk"

Zoom H4nSP
I use it for almost 2 years, with both pro and video productions to record rehearsals with my band or for friends.

In the video zoom allows me to regain his console when running excerpts from concerts, on acoustic sets I use it with a couple of microphones Rode NT 5 and then I got amazing results given investment and ease of implementation.
I like the overall product quality, never had any problems with, I help with 2 8GB SDHC cards, the one delivered is too tight, you turn on video in 16 bit or 48K.
I always use a nomad, never as an external sound card, I have what it takes in the studio.
I love the richness of the menu and options, hotkeys to select the file, the working frequency etc. ...
Even the couple of mics works well, provided there is no wind, the supplied windscreen does not suffice and must be (very) sensitive to handling noise.
Registration of personal nature sounds I put it on one foot and let it work!
Side autonomy careful if you use external microphones with the +48 V, the batteries do not last long.
I remake that choice without problem, now have a camera of this quality at this price point, nothing compared to a camera Pro is a good plan.
PS I started doing his radio with Revox to 3000 € and nagra band of over 10 kg at a price pfffff lightness then I said we appreciate you!

skwyz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" inseparable!"

Zoom H4nSP
_Since How long you use it?
Purchased in September 2011 in order to catch its many and varied, and record live entertainment (thanks to the combo inputs XLR / jack).

_Aviez You tried many other models before buying it?
No. therefore no comparison for me ...

_Quelle Is the feature that you like most and least?
the least: the quality of cells and micro preamps built ...
Most: its ergonomics and interface for a more complete "toy" compact.

_How Do you rate the quality / price?

_with The experience, you do again this choice?
Without testing the other models I would have trouble competing to be objective on the issue ...
But I do not regret purchasing it and carries it throughout my move when meeting with an object sound interesting! With a good pair of micro above, we draw things quite satisfactory (for a layman like me).

theandroid's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good working tool!"

Zoom H4nSP
I use the Zoom H4n for 2 years. At the time I was looking for a digital recorder with a good return on its mics, recorder for rehearsals and riffs / songs at home.
So really in work mode / draft for then distribute to group members.

The +
Works great and if we give ourselves an SD card rather large, one has enough to see it coming.
Its very clean.
Can adjust the format / compression level to avoid huge files.

The -
The interface is not very ergonomic

I never explored the options of recording with effects / multi tracks etc. ...
Finally, for the use I make of it really having an oversized iPhone, I use very little: the voice recorder of the iPhone is finally enough and with a little trick we can avoid saturation. Of course we do not reach the quality of reproduction of the zoom but for the draft and sending direct mail to his cronies is nickel.

In short, a good camera to explore for those who have time and courage. Direct in record mode, it works very well, it gives me the most!

thierry.delnatte's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Zoom H4nSP
Much has been said, I will speak of its limitations

I sing and play guitar together.
I also H4 and lack of control of sound effects differentiated right track (guitar) left channel (voice) I miss him, the common guitar and voice effects are too limited.
No additional sound output compared to H4 then transfer the audio to another device, preventing you to listen to you at the same time.
You get lost in the menu and sub menu.
I have not been able to put my metronome without at the same time agree on the record.
He has already lost several times my creations when its batteries died and I forgot to write down all my settings.
Total stay on H4 or the branch 2.
