Question about Zoom H4 Handy Recorder
I'm getting distortion when recording my flute, if I lower the gain it won't improve, it happens when I play the higher notes.
I'm using a macbook air and I did all the steps.
What should I do?
And also, can I monitor the recording through the computer?
K, 1st of all... Try listening to the files directly from the h4, before download to the nbook. No dist? Problem solved.
Otherwise, note the mics are really sensitive, even in low gain, any "wind" instrument, like your flute, my clarinet, or even the voice can generate distortion.
1. You have a "monitor" mode in the h4, just check for it, easy to find. Then you can adjust details on the h4, as you play and listen the output.
2.check the distance you are playing from the mic, be generous with that, anyhow you can move higher the gain. :)
3. Don't play directly to the mic, as the air from your instrument may generate a noise that is not a note, but simply air coming through the mic.
Monitor through computer... I'm stucked trying to make it work with any recording program in Vista, don't know how to make the system rcognize the device.So, I can't help you, and by the way, do you know how to record in Windows??
