Can you overdub with it? (I downgraded from H6 to H4n pro for this feature.)
Asked by: Ed
Record All Channels Live or Overdub Layers The H8 boasts multichannel recording at up to 24-bit / 96 kHz resolution; up to 12 tracks (mic capsule, backup recording, XLR 1-4, XLR-1/4" combo A and B, and LR stereo mix) are available. Record all channels simultaneously or utilize the overdubbing function to add layers of instruments after an initial recording. Adjust levels and pans for your tracks, then use the H8's internal mixdown function to blend your tracks down to a stereo file.

On the PODCAST, there are only 4 pre-recorded sound effects that can be played. Is there a way to see all the 12 audio effects by scrolling or something?

There are 13 built in sounds, all loaded into a sound pad folder which you can scroll through. Effects can be accessed in the Music App using the effects icon. Additionally, Zoom includes a free Guitar lab software that allows you to edit effects on a computer and updated patches to the recorder.

Yes, you can connect a 3.5mm TRS audio cable to bring the audio from the H8 to a DSLR camera's mic jack. An attenuator cable can also be used to reduce the signal sent to the camera.
