Zoom some more

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - LIFESTYLE -

ZOOM, those re­mark­able peo­ple who made por­ta­ble dig­i­tal record­ing so af­ford­able, have done it again. Fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of the H4 and H2 is the H1, promis­ing stereo sound with im­pec­ca­ble clar­ity.

The H1’s on­board di­rec­tional mi­cro­phones are con­fig­ured in an X/Y pat­tern, and this al­lows for ex­cel­lent stereo imag­ing, while en­sur­ing that un­wanted noise is elim­i­nated.

As for record­ing me­dia, the H1 ac­cepts mi­croSD cards of up to 32GB; this means about 50 hours of au­dio in 16-bit/44.1kHz WAV for­mat or 555 hours in 128kbps MP3 for­mat. You can also opt for 24/96 res­o­lu­tion.

In­puts are pro­vided for an ex­ter­nal mi­cro­phone and linelevel sources.

Time-stamp­ing and track mark­ers make man­ag­ing and edit­ing data a breeze.

A built-in ref­er­ence speaker lets you check re­sults of your record­ings im­me­di­ately, with­out the need for head­phones, while USB 2.0 con­nec­tiv­ity means faster file trans­fers to your com­puter.

For the nitty-gritty, call C.K. Mu­sicSd­nBhd( 03-2142 0529/21450178).

Not a shaver: zoom’s H1

dig­i­tal recorder makes record­ing on the go fun.
