Zoom North America today released its new H5 Handy Recorder, offering four-track audio recording. A shock-mounted X/Y stereo capsule, the device can utilize the same interchangeable capsules as its other device, the H6. X/Y recording allows seers to cover a wide area and capture sound sources in the center with clarity and definition, suitable for 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 newest recorder can capture sound levels up to 140 dB SPL, ideal for live concerts and other loud scenarios.

The H5’s auto-record function 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 drop below a designated level. Its Backup-Record function automatically records a duplicate set of stereo tracks with 12dB less input gain, ensuring clear capture. The H5 is capable of a Loop Back function that makes it easy to add narration to music playback, by connecting the device to one’s computer or iPad (which requires Apple Camera Connection Kit) via USB.

The H5 Handy Recorder is priced at $270.
