The Zoom H4 was a great unit, but it had a few design flaws. Everything that was wrong with the H4, they fixed with the H4n. This is an exceptional unit, AND is also functions as a computer recording interface, complete with many Zoom effects. I have no connection to this listing, just wanted to offer my hearty endorsement.
