Four Tracks. More Options.

With four tracks, 32-bit float recording, advanced X/Y mics and 2 XLR/TRS inputs, creators have more ways to record their music, podcasts, and audio-for-video.

More Dynamic Range

With 32-bit float recording, you never have to adjust levels. The H4essential captures every nuance of your sound ensuring high-quality, clip-free audio in every take.

The First Recorders With Accessibility

The Essential Series was designed with Accessibility for the blind and visually impaired. Navigate the menu with audible descriptions through the built-in speaker or headphones. Creators can choose English, Spanish, French, Japanese, German, Italian or Chinese.

Sound Pressure Level

The 2 XLR/TRS combo inputs feature Zoom’s ultra-clean preamps that supports phantom power and +4dBu professional line level input. The onboard X/Y microphones can capture sound up to a thunderous 130 dB SPL, equivalent to a rock concert.

Record And Stream

Stream in 32-bit float while simultaneously recording to an SD card. When connected to a PC, Mac, iOS, or Android device using the USB-C Port, the H4essential can be used as a 4-in/2-out audio interface.

Mix. Monitor. Record.

Use the built-in mixer to easily adjust each track’s audio level. It also has a waveform display so you can see your audio as it records.
