Re: Recording with Zoom H4n

I'm getting ready to try this from the S1Pro to the Zoom H4N. I will let you know how it turns out.

Do you know what the best option is for hooking the two together?

Re: Recording with Zoom H4n

I play in a duo (two vocals, two acoustic guitars) and we run a single line out from the master output, pre-master volume) to a Zoom recorder. I use a 1/4" out to a direct box, and an xlr to 1/8" stereo into the Zoom. We record our live shows. Bear in mind the attached recording was meant for that purpose. If I planned on doing anything else I would probably tweak it a bit.

Re: Recording with Zoom H4n

This is actually an interesting topic for me.  I am using a Zoom Q4n for video and the audio is always quite excellent in volume, tone, and fullness.  However, regardless of X-Y positioning, the ambient noise is sometimes a little too much....and sometimes a LOT too much.  Crowd noise further back can ruin an otherwise good video.   On the other hand, line out to direct line in removes all ambient sound and doesn't have a realistic but full an accurate quality result.  Therefore I have just ordered a Zoom H5 field recorder which I will record from the line/out into...... in addition to the audio from the Q4n.  I can then sync them and edit with my DAW and editing software.  Post production can solve a lot of issues for me once I become more skilled at it and help me blend the best of both of those situations.   Any tips/tricks/suggestions/ or experiences are certainly welcome from anyone.
