In this manual, symbols are used to highlight warnings and cautions for you to read so that accidents can be prevented. The meanings of these symbols are as follows:
This symbol indicates explanations about extremely dangerous matters. If users ignore this symbol and handle the device the wrong way, serious injury or death could result. This symbol indicates explanations about dangerous matters. If users ignore this symbol and handle the device the wrong way, bodily injury and damage to the equipment could result.
High humidity or moisture Excessive dust or sand Excessive vibration or shock
Never place objects lled with liquids, such as vases, on the H2 since this can cause electric shock. Do not place naked ame sources, such as lighted candles, on the H2 since this can cause re. The H2 is a precision instrument. Do not exert undue pressure on the keys and other controls. Also take care not to drop the unit, and do not subject it to shock or excessive pressure. Take care that no foreign objects (coins or pins etc.) or liquids can enter the unit.
Connecting cables and input and output jacks
You should always turn off the power to the H2 and all other equipment before connecting or disconnecting any cables. Also make sure to disconnect all connection cables and the power cord before moving the H2.
Please observe the following safety tips and precautions to ensure hazard-free use of the H2.
Since power consumption of this unit is fairly high, we Warning recommend the use of an AC adapter whenever possible. When powering the unit from batteries, use only alkaline types. [AC adapter operation]
Be sure to use only an AC adapter which supplies 9 V DC, 300 mA and is equipped with a "center minus" plug (Zoom AD-0006). The use of an adapter other than the specied type may damage the unit and pose a safety hazard. Connect the AC adapter only to an AC outlet that supplies the rated voltage required by the adapter. When disconnecting the AC adapter from the AC outlet, always grasp the adapter itself and do not pull at the cable. During lightning or when not using the unit for an extended period, disconnect the AC adapter from the AC outlet.
Never open the case of the H2 or attempt to modify the Warning product in any way since this can result in damage to the unit.
Do not use the H2 at a loud volume for a long time since this can cause hearing impairment.
For safety considerations, the H2 has been designed to provide maximum protection against the emission of electromagnetic radiation from inside the device, and protection from external interference. However, equipment that is very susceptible to interference or that emits powerful electromagnetic waves should not be placed near the H2, as the possibility of interference cannot be ruled out entirely. With any type of digital control device, the H2 included, electromagnetic interference can cause malfunctioning and can corrupt or destroy data. Care should be taken to minimize the risk of damage.
Use two conventional IEC R6 (size AA) batteries (alkaline). The H2 cannot be used for recharging. Pay close attention to the labelling of the battery to make sure you choose the correct type. When not using the unit for an extended period, remove the batteries from the unit. If battery leakage has occurred, wipe the battery compartment and the battery terminals carefully to remove all remnants of battery uid. While using the unit, the battery compartment cover should be closed.
Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the H2. If necessary, slightly moisten the cloth. Do not use abrasive cleanser, wax, or solvents (such as paint thinner or cleaning alcohol), since these may dull the nish or damage the surface.
To prevent the risk of re, electric shock or malfunction, avoid using your H2 in environments where it will be exposed to:
Extreme temperatures Heat sources such as radiators or stoves
Please keep this manual in a convenient place for future reference.

Insert a SD card into the H2.
Verify that power to the H2 is off. Then insert the SD card into the [SD CARD] slot ( p. 11). Verify that a monitor system or headphones are connected to the [PHONES/LINE OUT] jack of the H2.
When using an external monitor system, make sure that the volume is fully turned down and power is off.
This is called the "top screen". From here, you can access the various functions of the H2. If another screen is currently shown, press the 4 (MENU) key repeatedly until the above screen appears.
Turn power on in the order H2 monitor system.
The top screen will look slightly different, depending on the currently selected mode (stereo mode or 4-channel mode).
To turn the H2 on, slide the [POWER] switch into the ON position. Next, turn power to the monitor system on and adjust the volume.
If the indication "No Card" appears when you turn the H2 on, no SD card was detected. Make sure that the SD card is inserted properly. If the indication "Format Card?" appears when you turn the H2 on, the inserted SD card has not been initialized. To initialize (format) the card, use the 3 (REW)/2 (FF) keys to move the cursor to "YES" and press the 5 (REC) key.
The H2 has an internal clock that is used for time stamping of files created during recording. When you turn the H2 on for the first time, a message asking you to set the date/time appears. Follow the instructions in the section "Setting the date and time" on page 78.
If you skip this step, all files will be time stamped with the default "2007/01/01".
Selecting the operation mode
The H2 has two operation modes: stereo mode for 2-channel recording, and 4-channel mode. In this example, we will select the stereo mode.
Select the mic pattern.
Verify that the top screen is being shown.
The "mic pattern" is a setting which specifies whether sound is to be picked from the front or rear and how wide the directivity angle should be. When you switch the mic pattern, the appropriate operation mode is automatically chosen. To switch the mic pattern, use 7/6 (MIC PATTERN) keys. The currently selected pattern is shown by the mic pattern indicators.
Mic pattern indicators Lit
(MIC PATTERN) keys
If another screen is currently shown, press the 4 (MENU) key repeatedly until the top screen appears.
Select FRONT 90 (stereo recording of sound coming from the front, using a 90-degree angle) or REAR 120 (stereo recording of sound coming from the rear, using a 120-
FRONT 90 Stereo recording of sound sources located in front of the H2, within a 90-degree range
REAR 120 Stereo recording of sound sources located in rear of the H2, within a 120-degree range
degree angle), depending on the width of the sound source and the distance to it. For details on mic patterns, see page 21. When one of the above mic patterns is chosen, the operation mode automatically becomes stereo (2-channel).
When the H2 is in the playback, recording, or recording standby condition, or when something is connected to the [EXT MIC IN] jack or [LINE IN] jack, the mic pattern setting cannot be changed.
Setting the input sensitivity and recording level
For best results, the input sensitivity and the recording level must be set to appropriate values.
Set the sensitivity of the built-in mics.
The [MIC ACTIVE] indicator on the front panel and rear panel of the H2 shows which mic is currently selected. If the sound level as picked up by the front or rear mics is too high, causing signal distortion, the respective [MIC ACTIVE] indicator ashes.
Setting the input sensitivity means adjusting the gain of the input section of the H2, so that the signal from the built-in mics or from the [EXT MIC IN] jack can be recorded with minimal noise and distortion. The [MIC GAIN] switch on the right side panel of the H2 is used for setting the input sensitivity.
Use this position if the sound source is at a distance from the H2 or if its level is low. Use this position for recording an acoustic guitar or other instruments with relatively low volume. Use this position if the sound source is close to the H2 or if you are recording a band performance or other loud sound source.

To record in stereo mode, proceed as follows.
In the initial condition, the H2 is set up to record stereo WAV files (16 bit quantization, sampling frequency 44.1 kHz) in stereo mode. The settings for file format, quantization, and sampling frequency can be changed ( p. 35).
indicator on the front panel or rear panel does not flash when the volume of the sound source is at maximum. For information on recommended [MIC GAIN] switch settings, see page 15.
Keep in mind that the recorded content will be distorted if the [MIC ACTIVE] indicator is flashing.
Bring up the stereo mode top screen. Activate the source to record.
The H2 can record from the built-in mics, from an external mic connected to the [EXT MIC IN] jack or from an external component connected to the [LINE IN] jack. Recording from the built-in mics Verify that nothing is connected to the [EXT MIC IN] jack or [LINE IN] jack. If anything is plugged into these jacks, the built-in mics will not operate. Recording from an external mic or external component Connect the external mic to the [EXT MIC IN] jack or the external component to the [LINE IN] jack. Note that the [LINE IN] jack has priority if equipment is connected both to the [EXT MIC IN] jack and [LINE IN] jack.
Press the 5 (REC) key so that [PLAY/REC] indicator on the front panel flashes in red. The current input level is indicated by the level meters, and the input signal can be monitored via the [PHONES/LINE OUT] jack. The name of the file that will be created is also shown on the display.
File created by this recording operation
By changing a setting of the H2, it is possible to always monitor the input signal, also while the unit is not in the recording standby condition ( p. 79). In stereo mode, a new le is created for every recording operation, and a le name is automatically assigned, using the pattern "STE-xxx.WAV" or "STE-xxx.MP3" (where xxx is a number from 000 to 999). The le name can be changed later ( p. 50).
To play the selected file, press the 1 (PLAY/ PAUSE) key. During playback, the [PLAY/ REC] indicator on the front panel is lit in green. To pause playback, press the 1 (PLAY/PAUSE) key once more. In stereo mode, the keys of the unit operate as shown below.
Hold down 3 (REW) key Rewind Briefly tap 3 (REW) key When the counter is part way into a file, it is reset to zero (beginning of the file). If the counter is at zero, the previous file is selected.
Hold down 2 (FF) key Fast-forward Briefly tap 2 (FF) key The next file is selected.
Press 1 (PLAY/PAUSE) key Perform playback/pause.
4-Channel Mode Recording
This section explains in detail how to record in 4-channel mode.
About the 4-channel mode
In 4-channel mode, the built-in mics record stereo sound coming from the front panel direction and the rear panel direction. The result is saved as a pair of two stereo WAV files providing four channels of information. For example, you could place the H2 in the center of a band to record a practice session, or you could record both the target sound and the ambient sound during field recording. In a live venue, you can record the performers and the audience reaction. For playback, the front and rear signals are mixed into a two-channel (stereo) signal. It is also possible to adjust the front/rear and left/right balance after the fact or convert the recorded information into a stereo WAV file. Using the two WAV files produced in 4channel mode as source material for a surround sound encoder allows the creation of 5.1 channel audio for playback on a home entertainment surround sound system. To switch the H2 to 4-channel mode, simply select "SURROUND 4CH" as mic pattern. (For details on mic patterns, see page 21.) Use the 7 / 6 (MIC PATTERN) keys on the front panel so that the "SURROUND 4CH" mic pattern indicator is lit.
When you want to use the H2 in 4-channel mode, nothing may be connected to the [EXT MIC IN] jack or [LINE IN] jack.
When you select a mic pattern other than SURROUND 4CH , the H2 switches back to stereo mode. (For information on other mic patterns, see page 21.)
The illustration on the next page shows the 4channel mode top screen. The screen gives access to the information explained below.
4-Channel Mode Recording Counter
4-channel mode symbol
Shows that the H2 is operating in 4-channel mode.
Normally, the name of the file pair that is played back is shown here. During recording standby and recording, the name of the file pair used for recording is shown. In 4-channel mode, two WAV format files (one each for front and rear) are handled as a set. The indication "SRxxxF/R.WAV" (where xxx is a number from 000 to 499) refers to the front stereo file "SRxxxF.WAV" and rear stereo file "SRxxxR.WAV" pair.
After making 3D panning adjustments using a pair of stereo files recorded in 4-channel mode, you can save the result as a single stereo file ( p. 57).
The 3D panning setting is not stored individually for each le. Rather, there is only one setting that applies to all les. Keep in mind that even if you select a different le pair, the 3D panning setting will not change. To return the 3D panning setting to the default condition, move the cursor to "RESET" on the 3D PAN menu and press the 5 (REC) key.
Convenient Recording Functions
This section describes various functions of the H2 that will come in handy during recording.
Selecting the recording mode
The H2 lets you choose from a number of recording modes (with different settings for file format, sampling frequency, quantization), allowing you to get the most out of the H2 in various recording situations.
The settings described here cannot be changed while the recorder is operating. Stop recording or playback before carrying out these steps.
Here you can select the recording mode. The settings available for file format, sampling frequency, and quantization are listed below.

Bring up the FILE MP3 ENCODE screen.
Use the 3 (REW)/2 (FF) keys to move the cursor to "MP3 ENCODE" and press the 5 (REC) key. The display changes as follows.
to the type of music, the playback environment, and other factors. We recommend that you experiment with various settings. Check the resulting file sizes and play back the converted files to find the optimum setting for your needs.
Select the bit rate for the MP3 file.
Perform the MP3 conversion.
The bit rate determines the amount of information that is contained in the MP3 file for every second. Higher numbers will result in less data compression, allowing higher frequencies to be reproduced, but the file size will be correspondingly larger. When a low bit rate is selected, file size is smaller but the limit for high-frequency reproduction becomes lower. To change the bit rate, move the cursor to "BIT RATE" and press the 5 (REC) key. Then move the cursor to the desired bit rate and press the 5 (REC) key. The bit rate is set, and the display returns to the condition of the previous step.
If you press the 4 (MENU) key instead of the 5 (REC) key, the bit rate is not changed, and the display returns to the condition of the previous step.
To go ahead with the MP3 conversion process, move the cursor to "ENCODE" and press the 5 (REC) key. The source file will remain unchanged, and an additional file called xxxxxxxx.MP3 (where xxxxxxxx is the original file name) will be created in the same folder. The display then returns to the condition of step 3. If a file with the same name already exists in the folder, a file name change confirmation screen appears.
Move the cursor to "RENAME" and press the 5 (REC) key to change the file name ( p. 50), or move the cursor to "CANCEL" and press the 5 (REC) key to cancel the conversion procedure.
In principle, the sound quality obtained with a bit rate setting of 128 kbps is about on a par with FM radio, while a bit rate of 256 kbps gives CD quality. (Higher bit rate settings will not result in a significant change in sound quality.) However, actual results will differ according
Converting a 4-channel file pair to a stereo file (4-channel mode only)
You can convert a pair of stereo WAV files recorded in 4-channel mode into a single stereo WAV file. This lets you adjust the front/rear/left/right level balance using the 3D panning function and then create a file that can be copied to a computer and burned onto an audio CD.
When converting a pair of stereo WAV les in this way, the quantization and sampling frequency settings of the resulting le will be the same as for the original les. For burning onto an audio CD, the source normally needs to be a WAV le with 44.1 kHz sampling frequency and 16 bit quantization. Therefore you should select the 44.1 kHz/16bit recording mode when making recordings that you want to ultimately burn onto CD ( p. 35).
Select the file pair for conversion to a stereo WAV file.
Use the 3 (REW)/2 (FF) keys to move the cursor to the desired file pair and press the 5 (REC) key. The name of the currently selected file pair is shown at the top of the screen. Available file operations are listed in the lower part of the screen.
Using the chromatic tuner
The chromatic tuner automatically detects the pitch of the input signal in semitone steps, and displays the difference to the closest note. This type of tuning can be used for all instruments as well as for checking a vocal pitch.
The steps described here cannot be performed while the recorder is operating. Stop recording or playback before carrying out these steps. Before starting the operation below, make sure that the correct signal source for the instrument to tune is selected. When using the built-in mics for tuning, make sure that a suitable mic pattern is selected.
Bring up the CHROMATIC TUNER screen.
Move the cursor to "CHROMATIC" and press the 5 (REC) key. The chromatic tuner mode is selected and the display changes as follows.
Play the note that you want to tune. The pitch is automatically detected, and the display shows the nearest note name (C, C#, D, D#, E.). The display also indicates by how much the current pitch is different from the correct pitch.
Bring up the TUNER screen.
Using the dedicated guitar/ bass tuner
By selecting a tuner mode other than "CHROMATIC", you can perform tuning that is tailored to special requirements for guitar or bass. For these tuner modes, you specify each string for tuning separately. 7-string guitar, 5-string bass and other unconventional tunings are also supported.
Pitch is flat
Pitch is sharp
Watch the indication on the screen while tuning the instrument.
If the display does not respond to the playing of the instrument, check the input source selection ( p. 18), mic pattern selection ( p. 21), and input sensitivity/recording level setting ( p. 23).
Repeatedly press the 3 (REW)/ 2 (FF) keys to move the cursor to "TUNER" and press the 5 (REC) key. The screen for making tuner settings comes up.
Select the desired tuner mode.
Move the cursor to a mode other than "CHROMATIC" and press the 5 (REC) key. You can select "GUITAR" (standard guitar tuning), "BASS" (standard bass tuning), or special guitar tuning. In tuner modes other than "CHROMATIC",
the number of the string for tuning and note name for that string are displayed. For example, when you have selected "GUITAR", the display changes as follows.
Tuner mode name
Use the 3 (REW)/2 (FF) keys to specify the number of the string to tune (the note name also changes accordingly), and play the indicated string as an open string. The pitch shift is shown on the display. Tune the string while watching the display. Tune other strings in the same way.

Power Turn the recorder on with the power switch on the left side (U). The Zoom H2 Handy Recorder runs on 2 AA batteries, but we recommend using the AC power adapter (V) whenever possible to make sure the batteries don't die in the middle of a recording. If you can't plug the recorder in, try to have backup batteries on hand just in case, and keep track of the battery meter in the lower left corner of the screen (E). Recording to SD Card The Zoom H2 records onto an SD card, located in a slot on the bottom of the device (N). We lend it with a card, so you do not need to provide your own unless you prefer to do so. Using the Menus on the Zoom H2 Recorder: Press the Menu button to get into the menu. Use the double arrow (fast forward and rewind) buttons (G) to move up and down in the menu Use the the Record button (L) to select/activate a menu item. Format the SD Card (warning: this will erase ALL of the data on the SD card): Formatting the SD card will remove all of the data remaining (if any) from the previous user, and prepare the card for you to make your own recordings. This step is a good habit to get into. 1. Press the Menu (K) button 2. Press the left double-arrow/rewind button 3 times to move to the "SD CARD" menu item. 3. Select "FORMAT" 4. Select "YES" The Zoom will then format the SD card. Choose an audio recording format/quality: 1. Press Menu 2. Choose REC MODE 3. Use the double-arrow buttons to choose a recording format and quality. (You can use any setting you like, but we recommend using "MP3 160kbps", which provides very good sound quality with a small file size, and allows the Zoom to record for almost 7 hours before running out of space on the included 512MB SD card.) 4. Press the Menu button to exit back to the main screen. 5. The bottom right corner of the screen will indicate how much recording time you have left in hours, minutes, and seconds. (J)
Getting Ready to Record:
Press record once (L). This puts the recorder into record-ready mode. The Recorder status (C) will change from "STOP" to "REC" and the level meters (D) will start moving. Plug a pair of headphones into the Phones/Line Out jack (S) and you will be able to hear what your recording will sound like.
Adjust the "Gain" and recording level
Change the gain setting with the switch on the side of the Zoom (P) Low is best for recording loud sounds (a band performance, for example) Medium is good for recording acoustic instruments or other sounds with a moderate volume. High is good when you're recording a lecture or other situation where the sound is quiet or far away.
Listen with the headphones and watch the level bars (D) while you try all 3 to determine which gain setting will work the best for you. To ensure good sound quality, make sure the level bars (D) are generally moving to the right half of the screen, but they should only occasionally be hitting the far right side. Adjust the gain as necessary or fine-tune the recording level at this stage with the fast-forward and rewind buttons (G). Recording: When you're happy with the volume, press record again to start recording. The counter (B) will now start counting up. If it isn't counting up, it isn't recording. When you go to retrieve or playback your file, it will be located in the folder indicated in the upper right corner (H) of the Zoom screen. When you are finished recording, press record (L) again to stop. The counter (B) will stop counting up. REMEMBER TO TURN THE RECORDER OFF (U) when you are done, as the battery will continue to drain as long as it is turned on. Playback: The Zoom does not have a built-in speaker. You will need to connect headphones or external speakers to the Zoom's Phones/Line Out jack (S) to hear the recording. The file whose name is shown in the center of the display (I) is the one that will be played back. Use the fast-forward and rewind buttons (G) to select a different file. Press the Play button (M) to begin playback. Press it again to pause/stop playback. Press fast-forward or rewind to skip to the next/previous recording.
Connect the Zoom H2 to a computer When you connect the USB port of the H2 to a computer, the H2 will be recognized as card reader, and the SD card inserted in the H2 can be accessed directly from the computer. This lets you easily copy your recordings to the computer for further editing or burning to an audio CD. 1. Connect the Zoom's USB port (R) to your computer with a USB cable (usually supplied with the recorder) or access the contents of the SD card with a separate SD card reader. 2. An icon for the SD card in the H2 will appear on the desktop of the computer 3. Browse to the folder where your recording is located (Probably in FOLDER01 for a stereo file, or in 4CH for a 4-channel file) 4. Drag your recording from the Zoom folder to your computer. 4. Eject the H2 from your computer Windows: Click the "safely remove hardware" icon in the task tray and select the H2 as the device to remove Mac: Select the H2 icon and drag-and-drop it into the trash 5. Disconnect the USB cable and turn off the Zoom H2. Don't forget to make a backup of your recordings (often they're small enough to email to yourself) just in case!
