DO NOT insert foreign objects into or allow liquid to enter the unit. DO NOT exert undue pressure on the keys or other controls. DO NOT put the H4n speaker next to other precision instruments, such as a computer, or next to magnetic cards.
Unplug cables before moving the H4n unit to avoid jarring the jacks. Bring the unit to Media Loan for service immediately if it is not functioning correctly. It is highly recommended that you consult the complete H4n manual for detailed information regarding recording, modes and all further H4n details. There is simply too much information to be included in a simple guide such as this. The complete H4n manual is available from Media Loan.
Operation Supplying Power to the H4n Since power consumption of this unit is fairly high, we recommend the use of an AC power adapter whenever possible. Use only the AC adapter provided by Media Loan. Use of any other adapter could damage the H4n. During lightning or when not using the recorder for an extended period, disconnect the recorder from the AC outlet.
When powering with batteries, use two conventional size AA - 1. When not using the recorder from an extended period, remove the batteries. When using the recorder, the battery cover should be closed. Before plugging in or unplugging, inserting or removing batteries, make sure the H4n is powered down, otherwise, any data on the recorder may be destroyed.
SD Card Media Loan provides a SD card with the H4n recorder, This should provide a large amount of recording time, even while recording in very high definition formats. Do not remove the SD card unless absolutely necessary.
Make sure the recorder is turned off before attempting to change the SD card. SD cards are expensive. Always remember to return your recorder with the SD card it came with from Media Loan. If the SD card does not seem to fit or you are having difficulty removing it, please return to Media Loan for assistance.
Do not exert any excessive force on the SD card or the recorder. To power on the H4, push the switch toward the power logo, then release it. The switch will return to its original position, and the H4n will begin to boot up. To put the H4n into key hold mode, push the power switch into the hold position. The screen will show that the H4n is in key hold mode, and all buttons will not respond until key hold mode is deactivated. To switch out of key hold mode, simply pull the power switch back to the center position.
The screen will display that the key guard has been released. Once inside the main menu, turn the dial to select the desired option and press the dial to select. To go back to the previous menu screen, press the MENU button again. Menu Options [Folder] - The H4n offers 10 folders to keep recorded files separate and organized. When in the menu, the current folder will display at the bottom of the screen.
For complete details on using stamina mode, see the Recording Modes section of this manual. Recording sources can be chosen with the input buttons on the face of the recorder. Behind the built in stereo mic, there is a stereo mini jack to plug in an external stereo mic. To record from this source, press the MIC button. When the source is active, the MIC button will glow. The input jacks are controlled by the  and  buttons on the input panel.
In 2CH and 4CH modes, the two input jacks operate as a stereo pair. If you select one jack input button, both will glow to indicate that they are both active. IN MTR mode, the two jacks can be used independently. Recording Modes The H4n has several different recording modes, which change the way the recorder operates, and which inputs can be used. All recording modes except for stamina mode can be chosen in the MODE sub-menu. Stamina Mode - Stamina mode is designed for the sole purpose of conserving battery life, and should only be used if it is necessary to record for extremely long periods with no access to fresh batteries or AC power.
Stamina mode will increase battery life from about 6 hours to about 11 hours. In stamina mode, the H4n operates exactly like stereo mode with several limitations: In stamina mode, the zoom cannot record in any format other than the lowest quality WAV.
In stamina mode, the MODE sub-menu is locked out. To turn stamina mode on or off, the user must power down the recorder, and hit the stamina mode switch inside the battery door, then restart the recorder. The input select buttons will illuminate to reflect which source the H4n is recording from. While recording in stereo mode, the sources can be switched at any time, including while the recorder is capturing audio. Recording volumes are controlled by source.
Each of the tracks can be recorded and modified independently from any of the others. Each track can record from any of the input sources. To begin recording in MTR mode: Choose which track or pair of tracks you would like to record to. Choose the inputs you would like to record onto that track. To change the recording volume in MTR mode: Press the track number and input source buttons that you would like to change the recording level for. This will only change the recording levels for the selected inputs on the selected track.
Setting for the same inputs on other tracks will remain unchanged.
