Special Order Item - Please Allow Extra Time For Delivery

    Get A Compact, 4-In/4-Out Audio Interface That Enables You To Record And Perform Wherever You Are - The ZOOM U-44 Handy Audio Interface

    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.

    Zoom is partnering with Avid to offer U-series users access to a new and exciting collection of audio recording tools. Purchasers of Zoom’s U-22, U-24, and U-44 models can now register for a FREE download of a special version of Pro Tools | First which contains a valuable collection of 21 AAX audio software plug-ins. 

    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 2 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.

    CAN YOUR INTERFACE DO THIS?

    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, Shock Mount X/Y, Mid-Side, Shotgun, Stereo Shotgun, and Dual XLR/TRS Combo Input—each with its own unique applications. Record the audience during your live performance, or connect our SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun for dialogue and sound design on your latest film project.

    THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.

    The SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun capsule adds a super-directional mic for capturing sounds directly in front, plus a bi-directional one for capturing ambient sounds. It’s ideal for location recording, allowing videographers and content creators to capture dialogue or narration with the center microphone and mixing in the desired amount of environmental sound captured by the side microphone.

    THE ULTIMATE IN IMAGE CONTROL

    The MSH-6 Mid-Side capsule contains two mic elements positioned directly on top of one another. With dual mic elements—a forward-facing, unidirectional mic (the “Mid”) and a side-facing, bi-directional mic (the “Side”), the Mid-Side recording technique allows you to adjust the width of the stereo image after it has been recorded.

    LOUDER. CLOSER. CLEANER.

    The XYH-5 X/Y shock mount capsule features two matched unidirectional condenser microphones housed within an advanced shockmount to minimize vibration and handling noise, perfect for loud concert and performance settings.

    ALL THE PICKUP, HALF THE LENGTH

    The SGH-6 Shotgun capsule is a hyper-directional microphone that’s perfect for film, live theater, and newsgathering applications.

    EXPANDED CONNECTIVITY

    Plugging in the EXH-6 Dual XLR/TRS Combo Capsule gives you two more inputs, perfect for connecting extra microphones, instruments, mixers, or portable music players.

    PRISTINE RECORDING AND PLAYBACK

    Inspired by our Zoom H-series recorders, the U-44 is equipped with high-performance, low-noise mic preamps 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.

    IT’S ALL ABOUT CONNECTIONS

    The U-44 features a full array of inputs and outputs so you’ll always be prepared for any recording or live performance. 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, or other instruments. MIDI I/O jacks enable synchronization with devices like electronic keyboards, controllers, and synthesizer or sampler modules.

    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 your ideal mix. 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. The outputs of channels A and B can be muted, providing even more control. Plus, direct monitoring enables you to hear the live signal you’re recording without latency—simply adjust between the input and computer playback signals to create the perfect mix.

    STANDALONE AD/DA CONVERSION - TRANSFER AUDIO WITH TOTAL CLARITY

    When you’re transferring audio, high-quality AD/DA conversion is critical. The U-44 functions in standalone 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 or 48 kHz sampling rate for conversion.

    • Connect digital audio gear to analog amps and mixers
    • Create digital samples for your songs
    • Digitize your analog records and tapes
    • Transfer archived recordings to digital
