Zoom H1 Portable Field Recorder
Version 2.0. Compact and portable twin X/Y stereo recorder that does 24-bit / 96-kHz audio
The ultra-compact H1 handy Field Recorder brings new meaning to the term “portability.” Small enough to slip in your pocket, it offers professional-quality stereo recordings at an incredibly affordable price. Take it with you wherever you go—live concerts and band rehearsals, location video shoots, lectures and meetings—or use it to capture your musical ideas whenever inspiration strikes.
The X/Y technique provides a great way to cover a wide area while still capturing sound sources in the centre with clarity and definition, making it perfect for all types of live stereo recording.
The H1’s built-in X/Y microphone provides two matched unidirectional microphones set at a 90 degree angle relative to one another, optimum for most stereo recording applications.
Alternatively, you can connect a pair of external microphones or line level signal to the H1’s Mic/Line Input mini phone jack for X/Y or other types of stereo recording.
