The Zoom H4n makes it easy to record the sounds of people and places – wherever you are in the world. But there is no point keeping those recordings them on the device – you are recording that audio to share with the world.
For example, unhealthy last week I was recording some interviews for my University Research. There were two interviews that I recorded that day and I wanted to transfer them to my computer so I could then transcribe the audio.
Whilst you could use the USB cable that comes with the Zoom H4n to transfer recordings from the device to your PC or Mac, cialis I found it easier to use a SD Card reader. The process is pretty simple:
- Power down your Zoom H4n (hold the power switch down for a few seconds before the device turns off)
- Open the cover with the SD HC logo on it – be careful as if you open it to violently it could break off
- Push your SD card in slightly with your finger, it will pop out making it easier to remove from the device
- Remove the SD card from your voice recorder
- Insert the SD card into your USB SD Card Reader… and assuming it is plugged into your PC …
- Your audio files will appear. Navigate down through the file hierarchy to find your recent recordings, and then simply drag and drop them to a folder that you want to store them in.
Once on your PC you can simply store them (boring), or you could use a tool like Audacity or Adobe Audition
to produce your raw recordings into masterpieces!
