As well as being a great recorder for recording out and about, I’ve found the Zoom H4n to be great for recording directly to the computer, thanks to the option to use it as a USB microphone. That means I can take advantage of the excellent microphones at home as well!
Here’s how to do it (it’s all in the manual).
The Zoom is now connected as a USB microphone – USB bus powered, so it won’t drain the batteries (I don’t think so anyway). It even shows level meters on the Zoom, and there is the option to select effects to apply to the sound – I haven’t played with that yet.
