You can store up to 34 hours of recordings in MP3 on a microSD card (max 32GB - 2GB included) or up to 3 hours in WAV. run your recorder for up to 10 hours on a single AA batteries (included). Low-cut filters prevent wind noise and rumble interfering with your recording a clear backlit 127 segment LCD display means you can always see what you’re doing.

What type of microphones does the H1 use?
Two unidirectional condenser mics give you great audio. They are set up in an X/Y arrangement at 90 degrees to each other, which is perfect for stereo recording. Plug in a pair of external microphones to get recordings from further away. Two tracks can be recorded or played back simultaneously, and auto level automatically controls your input audio level. The recorder has a speaker for instant play back so you can hear your recordings as soon as you finish. For a more personal listen, use the built-in headphone socket. You can even use with a tripod stand or mic stand to get consistent audio or use an adapter (not included) to connect to a DSLR camera to match your audio and video.

How can I transfer files to my computer?
Connect straight to the USB port on your computer from the mini USB on the recorder. This lets you transfer files, power the recorder or even use it as a USB microphone. Use the recorder to make up to 99 marks in a track to let you know exactly where you want to edit. The H1 recorder comes with Steinberg’s Cubase LE music production software and WaveLab LE audio editing software to let you edit and create spectacular audio for any occasion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely little recorder - gets the voices out of nowhere - excellent. Unfortunately the software will not open MP3 files of 250MB+ - message that the audio file is too large. This is a pity as files way bigger files will come off the 32GB MicroSD it is capable of taking. I have had to load other software for big files.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good value for money, easy to set up and start using right away. I would recommend it for anyone who needs a cheap but high quality recording device. It comes with 2GB card so you have a decent amount of recording time if you don't a larger alternative. All in all a great little device!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT recorder All the controls easy to understand and use unlike the previous one which this replaces and it has a volume control also which the old one did not have and had to be held to the ear or shouted at just to hear the recorded messages.

If a mistake was made in recording I would need to be able to rewind to the spot and record over and then continue the recording. Can this be done? Or do you have to start from scratch again?

Asked by: Sue957
You would need to start again.
