The Zoom H4n gets independent level controls
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!
