Zoom H5 Handy Portable Field Recorder with XYH-5 X/Y Mic Capsule. Evolved recording in more ways than one. Our products are constantly evolving to meet the needs of the creators who use them. With the H5 Handy Recorder, the tradition continues.

The H5 provides four tracks of simultaneous recording and, like our flagship H6, it can use all Zoom interchangeable input capsules, allowing you to choose the best microphone for every recording situation. The flexible and powerful H5 provides everything you need to create multitrack recordings, audio for video, and state-of-the-art podcasting, broadcasting and electronic newsgathering. X/Y recording allows you to cover a wide area yet still capture sound sources in the center with clarity and definition, making it ideal for all types of live stereo recording. The XYH-5 X/Y microphone capsule included with the H5 provides two matched unidirectional condenser microphones set at a 90 degree angle. The design of the XYH-5 also allows the H5 to handle louder sounds than any other Handy Recorder model: 140 dB SPL, to be preciseequivalent to the sound of a jet aircraft from less than 200 feet awayenabling you to capture sounds louder, closer, and cleaner than you ever could before.

The XYH-5 X/Y microphone capsule provides two matched unidirectional condenser microphones set at a 90 degree angle. The design of the XYH-5 also allows it to handle extremely loud sounds - 140dB SPL, to be precise (equivelant to the sound of a jet aircraft from less that 200 feet away) - making it perfect for capturing the sound of live rock concerts and for electronic news gathering.

The Hardware Ins & Outs In addition to standard transport controls (stop, play/pause, record, rewind, and fast-forward), the front panel of the H5 offers dedicated record arming buttons for each track, which double as mute switches during playback. A Hold switch disables all front panel buttons to prevent accidental operation during recording. The H5 can be attached to a camera strap or, with the use of our optional Hot Shoe mount, mounted directly to a DSLR or camcorder. The H5 also provides everything you need to connect with the outside world.

Dual combo XLR/TRS inputs that can handle both mic- and line-level signals allow you to connect external microphones and line-level devices like mixers, portable music players, effects processors, and electronic keyboardseven electric guitars or basses equipped with active electronics. The supplied XYH-5 X/Y capsule also provides a secondary input for connecting stereo mic- or line-level signal via a? The H5 supports a +4 dB (professional) input level and utilizes the same high-quality preamps as our flagship H6, ensuring great-sounding recordings in all sonic environments. There are lots of output options as well. A dedicated Line Out with adjustable volume allows you to send a stereo audio output from the H5 to the mic input of a video camera or other device without the need for an attenuator cable. In addition, there's a separate headphone output with a dedicated volume control. You can use both outputs simultaneously to route audio to your DSLR while monitoring over headphones. There's also a built-in speaker for fast access playback, and a USB port which allows the H5 to be used as an audio interface for your computer or iPad. Power and Storage Just 2 AA batterieseither alkaline or rechargeable NiMHare required for power.

When using alkaline batteries, the H5 will operate for more than 15 hours, even while recording continuously. You can also use an optional AC adapter to power the H5 without batteries. The H5 records directly to SD and SDHC cards up to 32 gigabytes.

Maximum recording time is dependent upon the card size and file type; for example, the supplied 2GB SD card can hold approximately fourteen hours of stereo 320kbps MP3 files, three hours of stereo 16-bit / 44.1 kHz WAV files, or an hour of stereo 24-bit / 96kHz WAV files. The Software File types The H5 can operate in two different modeschoose stereo for two-track stereo recording, or multitrack for four-track recording (in either stereo pairs or individual mono tracks)and it captures audio in the two most commonly used file formats: WAV and MP3. The WAV files recorded by the H5 can be 16- or 24-bit, with sampling rates of 44.1, 48, or 96kHz. They are automatically time-stamped and thus Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) compliant, allowing for precise synchronization in video post-production. 96kHz sampling rate available in stereo mode only Signal Processing The H5's onboard effects allow you to add polish to your recordings. Compression and limiting compensate for fluctuations in input level, while a low-cut filter helps eliminate wind noise, blowing, and other kinds of low frequency rumble. There's even an onboard metronome and chromatic/guitar/bass tuner. Other features But the list of H5 features doesn't end there. There's playback looping, pitch change, and variable playback speed (without pitch change) to help with phrase training, as well as a pre-record function that keeps the H5 continuously recording in the background, keeping the previous two seconds before you hit RECORD. Theres an Auto-Record function that allows recording to begin automatically when a certain level of sound is detected and an equivalent Auto-Stop function that ends recording when the sound drops below a user-designated level, either immediately or up to 5 seconds later. And then there's Backup-Recordthe ultimate safety net. It enables the H5 to automatically record a duplicate set of stereo tracks with 12dB less input gain. Even if your original track is distorted, chances are the Backup version will be fine! 44.1 and 48kHz WAV files only. You can even use your H5 as an audio interface, complete with a Loop Back function that makes it easy to add narration to music playback.

Simply connect the H5 to your computer or iPad via USB, launch your favorite DAW or use the included Wavelab LE software, and start creating a masterpiece. Apple Camera Connection Kit required.
