The Zoom H4n gets independent level controls

Zoom H4n

Zoom have released a firmware update  (v1.70) for their H4n Handy Recorder. The new firmware adds the ability to set the recording levels for channels 1 & 2 individually. Prior to this update both channels shared a level setting making it tricky to record from two sources at the same time.

Get the firmware from the Zoom Website.

    Awesome! Thanks for the info, Paul.
    I just uploaded the new firmwire and I can only change the levels for channels 1 & 2 in MTR mode. I can not change the levels in 4ch mode.
    Does anyone know if it works in 4ch mode?

    • Hi Lucas. It does say on the page that it enables level controls for channels 1 & 2.

        I now realize why it was not working for me in 4ch mode! You need to change the input settings to “1/2 link- OFF” as seen in this video.

        And now it works!
