Great recorder for guitars, basses, and keyboards

SmartMedia
The PS-04 uses SmartMedia as a recording medium and ships with a 32MB card. SmartMedia cards are light weight and low-priced. With an optional128MB SmartMedia card you can achieve over 65 minutes recording time (in mono Hi-Fi mode). When you fill up a SmartMedia card, you can move all your song data to your computer using a USB memory card reader (sold separately). Card Manager, a free software program, is provided on the Zoom website and includes WAV/AIFF converter functions.

Drums & Bass Included
Zoom has some of the best linear PCM drum sounds in the business. The PS-04 has 7 different drum kits, and 190 preset patterns are included. Of course you can proram your own beats, too. Use the PS-04's exclusive FAST (Formula Assisted Song Translator) programming for quick song structures and rhythm programming. The PS-04 also has a built-in programmable bass machine with 6 different bass guitar tones.

Effects
The PS-04 offers five types of effect algorithms: Guitar/Bass, Mic, Line, Dual and Mastering. Choose from 94 types of effects, including 6 effects simultaneously within 5 effect modules. Memory is provided for saving up to 220 effects patches. The Zoom PS-04 also provides Individual send/return effects. This allows you to put great-sounding effects on your recordings. When you mix tracks down to stereo, you can add Mastering effects for the perfect finish.

Built-In Microphone
The Zoom PS-04's built-in microphone is a high-quality mic with a dedicated pre-amp, and will provide excellent results on acoustic guitar, other acoustic instruments or vocal recording. The mic also allows the built-in chromatic tuner to be used on acoustic instruments.

Good To Go!
Perfect for the darkened tour bus traveling at night, the PS-04 features a backlit LCD display, and all the buttons are lit as well. The device will operate for over 5 hours using 4 AA batteries. Take it anywhere, anytime!
