Here are just a few ways it can be used: Live recording of concerts and rehearsals, in either stereo or surround sound Location videography—the H2n gives you plenty of options in postproduction Creating audio for YouTube videos Generating lasting audio documents of important events As a USB microphone providing input to recording software FIVE MICROPHONES, FOUR WAYS OF RECORDING The H2n offers not one, not two, but five built-in microphones. Two of them are arranged as an X/Y pair, while the other three are configured in an MS (“Mid-Side”) pattern. They can be used separately for X/Y or MS stereo recording, or combined to create stunning 2- or 4-channel surround sound. MID-SIDE FOR VARIABLE STEREO WIDTH Mid-Side recording is an incredible technique that allows you to actually adjust the width of the stereo image after it has been recorded, while maintaining perfect mono compatibility, making it especially useful for film, video and television projects. The three microphone elements in the H2n MS mic are set directly on top of one another. One faces forward and the other two face to the side. X/Y FOR NATURAL-SOUNDING STEREO The X/Y technique provides a great way to cover a wide area while still capturing sound sources in the center with clarity and definition, making it perfect for all types of live stereo recording.
