Plug in guitars, mics, any instruments. Or use the built-in condenser mic to record your tracks.
Use the convenient digital functions such as copy & paste, move or erase to touch up details or rearrange the entire song. The marker function lets you specify up to 100 points for instant navigation in a song. Automatic and manual punch-in/out lets you smoothly re-record parts of a track. Bounce multiple takes onto a target track. This lets you record the sound from all tracks including the rhythm accompaniment on a stereo pair of virtual takes. Use the trimming function to snip off mute parts at the beginning and end of a track and complete final-mix.
The PS-04 boasts a palette of 87 amazing Zoom effects. Effects are configured in five modules: dynamics/compressor, distortion, ZNR (Zoom noise reduction), 3-band equalizer and modulation/ambience. Twenty types of amp modeling sounds are also provided. 170 effect patches are categorized by input types into guitar/bass, mic and line. The DUAL effect patch with fully separate channels is ideal for recording guitar and vocals at the same time, because you can use the mic preamp in one channel and a compressor in the other. The innovative ARRM (Auto-Repeat Realtime Modulation) feature synchronized to the built-in rhythm produces truly unique sounds and also functions as automatic pedal-wah or pedal-pitch.
In addition to the insert effect, the PS-04 has a send/return effect that can be used for the entire song, while controlling send level for each track. Four types of reverb (hall, room, spring, plate) as well as chorus and delay are available. 30 immediately useful preprogrammed effect patches can be selected, to simulate a concert hall or live venues, to add chorus optimized for vocals or guitar or to introduce analog delay.Mastering effects for final mixdown
