I have used this both in the 2 and 4 track mode, and find it to be an excellent piece of equipment. If only I had had one sooner! I may buy a second one.

Great sound and a lot of features !

I mostly use the Zoom H-4N to record my singing lessons and to catch spontaneous songideas. It is really compact so I carry it with me to rehearsals and concerts. It takes just around 8 seconds to be ready to record (depending on the size of your SD card) and you can easily adjust the sensibilty of the onboard microphones. I can even record loud rockconcerts or rehearsals of my band when I put the Input sensibilty to a very low level. You can also use the H-4N as a 4 track recorder but the handling and the menue guide are a little difficult I think. When switching the H-4N to the 4-channel-mode you can use the onboard microphones AND 2 separate microphones which is very useful for example to record a small acoustic band (vox, 2 guitars, cajon). You can open the soundfiles in cubase afterwards and adjust the mix which is pretty helpful.
The quality is not the best but okay, after a few weeks one of the very tiny teeth of the battery cover broke and now it's hanging a little loose.

I like my H-4N. I mostly use it to record myself while practicing playing guitar. It is great for that but is actually capable of a lot more. I sometimes load some backing track from the PC on it and use it in 4 channel mode. Great thing. It also has a metronome but I also have some simple drum tracks which I use in the same way. Also used it to record some songs playing guitar and singing (stereo mode this time). Results in great quality. The mics are so sensible they even record the press of the record button. Not a bi deal if you press them long enough before and after recording. Or use the optional remote.

Works great and Garageband immediately recognize the Zoom. No need for installations, it just works and it's simple to understand.
Beeing able to choose between using the Zoom as an interface while recording on the computer, or just simple record on a SD-card is very nice.

Not good enough preamps!

This product was very appealing to me when I realized it has 2 XLR with 48v preamp each.

I mean, how can you NOT love that in a portable field mixer (kinda)?! However, the preamps, as I have discovered on my own and after reading from real sound engineers (I am just a learning enthusiast), are not really good enough.

Also; which is really bad, when I connect my XLR-wired lavalier microphone (TRAM TR50) and I use the power adapter to give 48v phantom power and have the unit on, I hear tons of electronic noise.

It may be a defect, it may be a poor XLR-wiring or something else. I can only use TRAM TR50 with preamp in Zoom H4n if I run it on batteries (I think I have read others having this same issue).

So, do not let the XLR-ports tempt you to think this is a great portable field mixer for XLR-based microphones, because it is really not, unfortunately, because it seemed to have such potential otherwise.

Another bad thing with this unit is its handling; it is sooo sensitive to sound (its inbuilt stereo microphone that is) so you could not hold it and record sound without creating self-noise it would also pick-up.

No portable interview microphone as I thought it could have been used as. I have learned the hard way now that you gotta read more about all features and professional reviews to really get the most bang for your buck.

This was not the most bang for my bucks unfortunately. Lesson learned though!
