    I have exactly the same problem. The built-in mics are live and activated when I am playing back a recording, so I get feedback and handling noise.

I had the same problem till I looked in the instruction manual. If you press the MENU button, towards you (opposite of pressing PLAY), you will enter the INPUT MENU. Navigating with the JOG DIAL (at the side) you will find a function called "MONITOR". Switching it to OFF will solve your problem. Good luck!

If i record in my compaq nx9500 after the recording if i play it it will give me some sound under the recording


If you're using the built in the mic that's feedback because laptop mics are low powered they have the gain boosted in Windows. Try using an external mic and check the setting on the volume settings for recording devices. (Right click the volume icon)

If it's a buzzing/squealing noise you're concerned about that might be "ground loop" usually caused by having the laptop plugged into the mains or less commonly having loads of cpu intensive applications running in the background.

Also if the laptop is on a hard surface make sure that it isn't vibrating because the mic sensitivity will pick it up and because of the gain boost it will be amplified.
Gain = Volume

Hope that helps

Mac OS 10.4.11 does not recognize the Zoom H4 recorder


Mac OS 10.4 and higher require the Zoom H4 to be upgraded. 
Go to  http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/download/software/h4.php#a  and choose the download to version 2.20 that applies to you. The instructions are there, but it is a little tricky. You must download the upgrade to your computer and then transfer it to your Zoom SD card.  To do that you need an SD card reader.  I used my digital camera. I took the SD card out of the zoom and put it in the digital camera. I Plugged the camera into the computer and when the SD card icon appeared on the desktop I dragged the "System Bin" file from the download to the zoom folder.  The rest of their instructions were pretty good.   Good Luck.

H4 randomly stops recording on cubase le


I may possibly have solved this. I didn't realise that when I log off from Cubase, the ASIO driver returns to the Multimedia ASIO driver, which seems to be the default setting.

Every time I want to record with the Zoom H4 in future I'll need to reconfigure the ASIO driver to the H4 one.

I thought once I'd set the driver, it would remain there every time Cubase booted up. Apparently not.

Distortion when recording flute on cubase


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.
solutions:
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??

Luck bro

Software problems


Are you using Vista? I've posted another threat here (still no answer), cause I can't get Vista to recognize H4 as Audio I/O. I've also sent a mail to Zoom in Japan. They answered in english thanks god, telling me to upgrade the soft in H4, I can now move files to the computer, but still can't get Vista to recognize H4 as an Audio I/O, I mean, in record devices, Vista shows "camera mic and line in", that's all.
Ok , good bye

well is the mic / mics close to the machine, if it is then it is picking up its own radio waves which will make a loud unwanted sound...
