What we say:

At A Glance:

The H8 Handy Recorder by Zoom offers professional-quality multitrack audio in a portable battery-operated recorder. With the included interchangeable stereo microphone plus 4 XLR inputs and 2 combination inputs, The H8 offers a huge amount of recording potential. Whether you're looking to record audio for sound design, creating podcasts or recording musical performances, the H8 has you covered. We've been impressed by this powerful recorder and love the versatile range of uses it offers.

Features We Love:

Stereo Microphone

The included stereo microphone captures a detailed stereo image. Stereo microphones are extremely popular for capturing audio for sound design but are also excellent for recording speech and acoustic instruments. The mic features Zoom's proprietary connection that is compatible with other Zoom microphones, so if your production requires a shotgun or mid-side mic, they're easy to swap and mount on the recorder.

Pro Audio

The H8 is a professional-level recorder. With 8 tracks recorded in WAV at 24 bit, including the stereo mic, plus 4 XLR inputs and 2 TRS/XLR combination inputs that can supply Phantom Power, the H8 is powerful and versatile. H8 makes it easy to hook up a combination of 6 microphones or 4 mics and 2 line-level connections in any situation. Be it for podcasts, filming or recording live music, the H8 has you covered.

Touch Screen and Presets

H8 is controlled via a full-colour touch screen and features a great selection of presets that cater for typical recording scenarios. Speed up your set-up time for recording podcasts, music or ambient sound at the touch of a button.

Recording to SD card

The H8 records direct to SD card, not only is it compatible with cards up to 128GB, which give you a huge amount of recording time, they're also easy to swap out between projects so you can keep your session files separate.

As an Audio Interface

As if recording direct to SD card wasn't enough, H8 can also act as a multitrack USB audio interface, this is ideal for recording straight to your DAW of choice.

Customer reviews

Overall Rating 5/5 (2 reviews)

How things have changed - an eight track (potentially ten track) hand held recorder, with bass and guitar effects (distortion, modulation, reverb), with studio effects (compression, limiting, noise reduction) all for just over £350. Touch screen, and neat software division into three potential usage scenarios. I had the original Zoom 9002 guitar effects decades ago and this H8 continues their superb tools. The effects may not be UAD but they are excellent for practice and sketching ideas. Incredibly, if you have another Zoom recorder, they work as ?aggregate devices?, so I can use this with two H6 machines for 22 track portable recording should the need arise. Great stuff.
