The World's Easiest Recorder

With the push of a button the H1essential captures perfect audio suitable for a wide variety of amateur and professional users. Simply hit record and discover the power of 32-bit float. You never have to adjust levels; the H1essential captures every nuance of your sound ensuring high quality in every take. It also has advanced features such as overdubbing, pre-record, auto record, and playback speed adjustment.

Aquarian Notes: This recorder can be used with our H2dM (3.5mm TRS output) hydrophone, or any other plug-in powered hydrophone, for personal monitoring and recording with headphones. The headphone / line output can also be connected to the AUX input of a marine stereo or any powered speaker. Sound from the external microphone (hydrophone) input can be monitored even while not recording. Use this as a simple microphone preamp aboard your wildlife-watching vessel so your customers can hear cetaceans and other underwater sound though the boat's audio system and have the added benefit of capturing those sounds in high-fidelity at the push of a button. The pre-record feature buffers the last few seconds of sound, so you can even capture sounds after hearing them.
