Question about Zoom H4 Handy Recorder

1 Answer

H4 randomly stops recording on cubase le

Using the H4 as an interface to record with Cubase LE, the track suddenly freezes after ten to fifeen seconds or so and then continues in play mode. I've tried batteries in and out, different USB ports etc. Is there a solution? Is it a firmware problem?

I use Windows XP on the computer.

Thanks.

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.

How do i get levels from my g track mic im using cubase le 5 i only get one side level how do i fix this issue?


The mic is only on the Left channel, and instrument input is on the Right channel. So in Cubase you need to select only the Left channel in your first track, and then only the Right channel in your second track, and then you can record Vocals and Instrument at the same time on 2 different tracks.

Make sure phantom power is enabled on the Tascam audio interface and you must enable the input in cubase that corresponds with the interface input on the track you are trying to record to.

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.

Connect to PC does not work


You need to upgrade the H4  firmware from Zoom website

You will need an external SD card reader.
Good Luck

Distortion with Zoom H4 as Audio I/O to computer


try using the power pack instead of batteries. Be sure to remove the batteries before using power pack, you can wreck the machine if you do not remove batteries. NEVER use the H4 on power pack while there is batteries inside.

Tascam us 144 sync problems with cubase le


Hey lea,

i have a similar setup (Cubase LE & Tascam 144) and each time i start up Cubase i have to make sure there is no digital input going to the tascam. once cubase is started up but no project loaded i plug in my spdif from my DAT machine and then open my project and all is fine. does that answer part of your question?

i have a different problem though, i'm trying to record my DAT tapes which are recorded at 32khz and cubase doesn't recognize that sample rate properly. it'll record no problem, and play them back fine, but exporting always creates mismatched sample rates in the exported file. sucks big time and i have got no idea on how to fix it either.

Burn CDs from Tascam US-122L


The answer is yes, but it may not work as simply as you think. You can't just save your Cubase file / mix and then send it to your recorder. You'll want to render down the song you have to one stereo .wav file and send that to burner as a wav file. (That's the quick way). Another option is to render each file you have seperately so acoustic guitar, bass, vocal, etc are all seperate tracks. So the answer is yes, a .wav file is the format for audio cds. You'll record your seperate tracks and then you'll have to mix down, render, or export them when you are done. In Cubase, use "export".
