Question about Zoom H4 Handy Recorder

1 Answer

Uploading files into projects

Is there any way to use a (.wav) file uploaded from the computer into an H4 4-track project? The manual describes importing files, which I've done. I can listen to the file in stereo mode, and see the file listed in the project when I import it to 4-track mode. But I can't get that file to be assigned to a track so that it can play back and be used. What is the point of importing a file if it can't be used? I guess an associated question would be, if you're recording in "Always New" mode and saving tracks, is there any way to select one of those saved tracks to playback and use again within the zoom, or do you have to dump them all into the comp to review and work with them?

    ok, I see how to select saved tracks - that was a spur of the moment question that I thought might have some bearing on getting .wav files into a usable form, but it doesn't. I guess there is some little bit of code on the file that assigns a track, and without it the zoom can't use it as a 4-track recording track?

    No, I got it finally. The zoom 4 track works with .wav, so that isn't the problem. The trouble seemed to be that the imported file has to be mono. I haven't tried MP3 or bitrates other than 44.1 but I think those might not work. I also didn't try importing stereo after setting it to stereo link in 4track - that also might work. Anyway, once you have a mono wave 44.1 file, you just drag it into the project, on the computer. I found that the file turned up in track #4 - maybe this is the default. You won't see it right away: you need to select the 4th track, and then scroll to the track data field with the jog dial, and enter it, and then scroll within that with the jog dial and you will find your imported track. Select it with the jog dial, and you're golden.

    ok, as a further note to this, you can import .wav stereo files into a project as long as you stereo-link the channels you upload into. It can be done after the fact I think. You won't see the files until you link the channels (I found the file in channels 1&2) and then enter the track data field and scroll and select as per above. It doesn't work with MP3 files - they have to be pre-converted to .wav before uploading to the zoom.

From iTunes, I have converted the m4a track to WAV and then copied that over to my Tascam DP-02CF via the USB connection. When I go to import the track it says "Import file not found". What am I doing...


Your wave file is probably in stereo and you need to change it to mono. I use the free Audacity program to do this.

Once you have uploaded your wave file into audacity on the left side click on the down arrow which will bring up several options, click on the 'split stereo track' option. Then delete one of the tracks. You can then export the file as a wav file, you might want to rename with mono in your name so you don't write it over your previous stereo file. You can then import the file into your DP-02

I had the same problem too but I figured it out. First you have to make sure your wav file is converted to (MONO) as opposed to Stereo, (which is the default channel setting). The best thing to do is to download a converter program, in my case I downloaded AVS Converter program which all I did was upload the wav file switch it to Mono 1.0 and that was that!! The Cons: for this program it costs money to download for your own keeping. I also suggest Audacity program my computer wont let me download it but a co-worker of mine has it and he said it's free to download.

File import in 4-track mode impossible


Convert the audio to Mono WAV (16Bit, 44.1KHz). This can be done by using Cubase(Hope you got Cubase LE with Zoom). In an empty project import the audio, then mark the whole track using the Draw tool and then got to File->Export. Here select the above options and export. Import this file into Zoom H4 either by copying directly into the memory card or through connecting the Zoom to computer ( I copy it directly into the memory card's STEREO folder). Now if you import it to any project, it will appear there. You can now use Zoom H4 as a Karaoke device!! Anyway, sad that Zoom H4 doesn't support stereo tracks in the 4Track mode.

Olympus VN4100 PC-Upload to Itunes???


The format of these files is WAV. I think you would need to convert the file format from WAV to MP3 in order to play it on the Ipod. You will probably need to locate third party software to do this type of conversion. Then you can copy and paste the file from your computer hard drive to the Ipod.

dont search using mp3 keyword, if you upload your files in binary mode will be enough.
try searching for "binary file upload/download using java"
you can find a lot of binary file uploads projects.
this will upload your mp3 and any other files as well.

Shelly, I have a 2480 but it must be very similar. Import the drum track as a wav file into two of your tracks within the same project. You must make sure the file is a WAV file and nothing else.

Hope it works, on the 2400, I am sure it must since it is a must have.
