Zoom U-44 overview

  • 1Description

The U-44 Audio Recording Bundle with Remote Shotgun Microphone Functionality is a B&H Kit based around a four input, four output mobile recording and performance interface. The bundle features the Zoom SSH-6 stereo shotgun microphone capsule that can be attached directly to the recorder, or by using the ECM-3 extension cable, positioned at up to ten feet away from the recorder.

An adjustable arm, grip and tripod combination is included for mounting the remote capsule, along with a set of professional studio headphones for monitoring duties. The bundle is rounded out with a 4-pack of AA alkaline batteries.

  • Zoom U-44 Handy 4-In/4-Out Audio Interface

    The U-44 from Zoom is a compact, 4-in/4-out audio interface with 48V phantom power that provides all of the essential tools you need for recording and performing high-resolution, 24-bit/96 kHz audio anywhere you go. It can be used to connect to your Mac or Windows computer, or iPad* via USB, to record with mics, instruments, and more.

    The U-44 interface uses the same high-quality, low-noise preamps as the Zoom H5 and H6 handy recorders. It features two TRS/XLR combo jacks for inputs, in/out S/PDIF Optical Toslink and S/PDIF Coaxial on RCA, MIDI In/Out, two TRS 1/4" unbalanced jack outputs, RCA line-level outputs and a standard stereo headphone jack. In addition, it is powered by two AA batteries, providing up to four hours of continuous operation with phantom power turned off. The U-44 includes a download code for Ableton Live 9 Lite software to get you started right away.

    The World is Your Studio
    Wherever you want to record, the bus-powered U-44 forms the perfect centerpiece of your mobile studio. Connect instruments, monitors, and other devices when you're recording at home, or hook it up to your iPad* to make music on the go. If bus power isn't available, the U-44 can run on just two AA batteries, allowing you to record anywhere

    * Requires two AA batteries or optional AC adapter for power, plus an Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit or Lightning-to-USB Camera Adapter for connection to iPad
    Zoom 10-Pin Connector
    Thanks to its 10-pin Zoom connector, the U-44 is compatible with all of our interchangeable input capsules (sold separately), representing a powerful field-recording setup. Choose from six capsules—X/Y, Shockmount X/Y, Mid-Side, Shotgun, Stereo Shotgun, and Dual XLR/TRS Combo Input—each with its own unique application. Record the audience during your live performance, or connect our SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun for dialogue and sound design on your latest film project
    Pristine Recording and Playback
    Inspired by the Zoom H-series recorders, the U-44 is equipped with high-performance, low-noise mic preamps (-119.5 dB EIN) that enable recording and playback at resolutions up to 24-bit/96 kHz. You can also use U-44 as a studio-quality headphone amp and listen to your favorite music in full fidelity
    Get Connected with the U-44
    The U-44 features a full array of inputs and outputs so you'll always be prepared. Two combo inputs with independent gain knobs and multi-color level indicators provide flexibility for connecting mics, keyboards, and mixers. 48V phantom power can be supplied to inputs 1 and 2, and input 1 supports Hi-Z input for connecting passive guitars, basses, and other instruments. MIDI I/O enables you to use electronic keyboards, controllers, synthesizers, and drum machines
    Multiple Output Options
    Multiple output options—including 1/4", RCA, and S/PDIF—allow you to connect DJ mixers, speakers, and more. Monitoring your mixes is easy thanks to a dedicated headphone output with independent volume control. The direct-monitor knob makes it possible to blend your headphone mix between the input and playback signals—perfect for live electronic music performance and DJ'ing
    Control Your Mix
    With advanced monitoring options, the U-44 lets you dial in the perfect mix with zero latency. Create a balanced headphone mix between your click-track and main-out signals during live performances. Or balance the cue and main out signals when you're DJ'ing.
    Stand-Alone AD/DA Conversion
    When you're transferring audio, high-quality AD/DA conversion is critical. The U-44 functions in stand-alone mode as a high-quality mic preamp and AD/DA converter to ensure complete transparency when converting audio formats. You can choose between a 44.1 and 48 kHz sampling rate for conversion
    Feature-Rich Mobile Recording
    The U-44 is small enough to carry in your jacket pocket or backpack without sacrificing features. Plus, all of the connectors and knobs are strategically positioned for fast access
    Create More with Your U-44
    When you combine the U-44 with Ableton Live 9 Lite, you have everything the modern music creator needs. Record your tracks quickly and intuitively, enhancing them with studio-quality effects like EQ, compression, reverb, delay, chorus, filter, and more

  • Zoom SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun Microphone Capsule for H5, H6, U-44 and Q8

    The Zoom SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun Microphone Capsule is designed to work with the company's H5 and H6 audio recorders as well as the hybrid Q8 audio and video recorder and their U-44. The capsule includes a super-directional microphone for picking up sound on center that can be combined with a bidirectional side microphone for picking up sound from the left or right to record a fully mono-compatible stereo image for film, video, and television projects. For example, you can record dialogue with the center microphone and then mix the desired amount of environmental sound captured by the side microphone with the Zoom recorder. A hairy windscreen is included for helping reduce wind noise.

  • Revo 3-in-1 Adjustable Arm, Grip & Tripod for GoPro

    The 3-in-1 Adjustable Arm, Grip & Tripod from Revo is a versatile support accessory designed to work as an extension arm, a camera grip, or a mini tripod. It features a standard 3-prong mounting interface for attaching a GoPro, but is also suitable for other action cameras, compact point-and-shoots, and smartphones using separately-available adapters. The arm folds down to 7.5" for easy storage and extends up to 20" for capturing unique angles, selfies, or seeing about a crowd.

    Two extension arm sections, with locking knobs at each joint, allow the arm to be easily configured into multiple positions. You can even detach the hand grip and attach it directly to a GoPro housing when all you need is a compact, rubberized grip. Additionally, you'll find a mini tripod tucked away inside the hand grip that can be used on its own or attached to the base of the grip.

    Made for action recording, the 3-in-1 Adjustable Arm is waterproof so it is safe for snorkeling and water sports. A wrist strap is included to help prevent accidental loss during underwater or fast-motion activities. Also included is a thumbscrew for attaching a GoPro housing or optional mounting adapter.

  • Senal SMH-1200 - Enhanced Studio Monitor Headphones (Nautical Blue)

    The nautical blue version of the SMH-1200 Enhanced Studio Monitor Headphones from Senal is tuned for accurate music reproduction and studio monitoring. With a closed-back, over-the-ear, foldable design and features like interchangeable twist-locking cables, extra deep ear cushions, and a refined musical frequency response, the SMH-1200s are suitable for both audio professionals and enthusiasts.

    Using 40mm Neodymium drivers, the headphones deliver a wide frequency response of 10 to 20,000 Hz with minimal distortion, a slightly boosted low end for well-defined bass and sub-bass, a smooth and pronounced midrange, and a clear intelligible high end. The extra deep ear pads provide comfort while wearing the headphones for extended listening sessions and help passively isolate the sound from external noise.

    Physically the SMH-1200s are designed to be robust and appropriate for use with professional audio equipment such as mixing consoles and headphone amplifiers. Their 58-ohm impedance can also operate with lower-power devices such as smart phones or mp3 players for mobile listening. Color-matched elements combine for an elegant look.

    They come with two twist-lock detachable cables that can be easily swapped depending on the application. The coiled cable can extend from 4 to 10 feet and is intended for studio use. The 4-foot, tangle-free, fabric cable includes an in-line microphone for phone calls and a control button for operating smart phones and other mobile devices. A wide range of accessories is supported.

    To ensure years of reliable operation, the earcups feature wire guides to protect the cabling and maintain the performance of the SMH-1200.

    Note: Due to variations in cell phone manufacturing, the included mobile cable may not work on all models of cell phones. For full functionality on Android phones, a third-party app such as Headset Button Controller may be required.
