Built For Creators
Rolling... And... Action!
Filmmakers can use the two XLR inputs for dialogue, while using the X/Y mics to record ambience. In post, your recordings can easily be synced to video, thanks to the M4’s onboard timecode generator.
Make Great Sounding Music Videos
Combine audio captured by the on-board X/Y mics with two additional external microphones to give your videos studio-quality sound in any environment.
Keep an eye on all four tracks of your recording using the M4’s color LCD with a real-time waveform display.
Super-Low Handling Noise
The M4 was engineered to be the quietest handheld recorder ever. Its unique X/Y mics and glossy finish significantly reduces handling noise, ensuring clean, clear audio, everytime.
Serious videographers use timecode to keep their audio and video perfectly in sync. The M4’s built-in timecode generator has professional grade .2 ppm accuracy.
The Ins and Outs

Connect the line output to your camera to record a backup or sync track to your video. Monitor your recording using the built-in headphone output.
Save time in post production by using the on board NORMALIZE function to automatically raise or lower the volume of your recording to the optimal level without compressing the audio.
Use the headphone output to monitor your recording or use the built in speaker for quick reference playback.
