The recorder captures audio to SD or SDHC cards with capacities up to 32 GB. A USB 2.0 port allows you to quickly transfer files to a Mac or PC, or use the H4n SP as a live audio interface.

For connecting your own microphones or instruments, the H4n SP features XLR/TRS combo input jacks with phantom capability. A 3.5mm line output is provided, and a reference speaker is built-in for quickly reviewing your recordings.

The backlit LCD screen and intuitive controls are easy to use, even for the recording novice.
