ZOOM U-44 - 4X4 interface, standalone AD/DA - $200

This might have been glossed over when the 4nPRO came out...

Interesting device.

COAX and SPDIF...I/O

You need one of the attachments to get all 4 analog channels...

Looks like you can take a SPDIF Input on 3/4 and still use the 1/2 XLRs...thats cool!

At 200 bucks this has more features than the TASCAM DR-70D...

Works with Ipad...


The U-44 is a compact, 4-in/4-out audio interface that enables you to record and perform wherever you are. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the U-44 comes equipped with the features you need to record 24-bit/96 kHz audio anywhere.

The U-44 offers the same high-quality, low-noise mic preamps as our acclaimed H5 and H6 Handy Recorders, plus compatibility with Zoom’s Interchangeable Input Capsules for incredible possibilities. Use the U-44 with your PC, Mac, or iPad via USB—or as a standalone AD/DA converter and mic preamp. No other audio interface provides this much versatility, value, and performance.

Note that this is an interface, not a recorder. No memory card slot.

Bump to note ZOOM has added two more models with lighter feature sets...

the U-22 ($99) and U-24 ($149)

Wonder if these are the same pres in the F series?

From ZOOM

"The U-series recorders share the same preamps has the H4n Pro, H5 and H6 recorders. These preamps differ from the F series recorders."
