Handy Recorder PRO 4+

ZOOM Corporation

    • $1.99



Handy Recorder PRO is an audio recording app with greatly expanded expandability.
In addition to the functions of the free version of Handy Recorder, it supports a File browser app and iOS standard sharing function to enhance the convenience of linking with other apps, various cloud services, and PCs.
As a unique new feature, we have added a "MOVIE" function that takes an audio track from a video, applies various effects such as EQ and reverb, and then merges it with the original video.

◇ Same high-quality sound recorder function as the free version
The HandyRecorder app allows you to record high-quality audio with your iOS device. Use it with a ZOOM iQ series mic, which are designed to capture audio of the best quality with iOS devices, and record using the high-fidelity linear PCM and space-saving AAC formats. This app includes normalize and divide functions that can be used on recorded files. In addition, it has compressor, EQ and reverb effects. Moreover, you can directly upload your recordings from Handy Recorder to the iCloud and SoundCloud file-sharing site, allowing you to bring your creations to the world over the Internet.

■ Stereo linear PCM and AAC recording
-You can record files using either high-quality linear PCM format or AAC format at a bit rate of 64, 128 or 160 kbps.
-The AUTO REC function can be used to start and stop recording automatically in response to the input signal level.

■ Works like a hardware recorder
-The operation screen was designed to simulate a ZOOM hardware Handy Recorder, so this app is as easy to operate as these products.

■ Effects
-Recorded files can be processed using the included effects.
-Pro+C8cessed recordings can also be saved as separate files.
-Use the NORMALIZE function to optimize the volume.

■File editing
-In addition to deleting files, you can use the divide function to split files at the point that you want.

■Uploading to Cloud Services
-The app includes a function that allows you to upload your recordings directly to the SoundCloud audio-sharing site. You can name your recordings and make sharing settings in the Handy Recorder app.
-iCloud drive is supported. Not only uploading selected file manually, but also “Auto Sync” function allows you to upload automatically soon after REC finished.

■Optimized for the iQ series
-By using the iQ5/iQ7 in MS recording mode, you can adjust the stereo width.
-Select from three iQ5's AUTO GAIN settings (CONCERT, SOLO, MEETING) according to the application.*
-Use the DIRECT MONITOR function to monitor the input signal through the headphones jack on the iQ series without latency
-The left and right channels of the iQ series input signal can be reversed.*
*These setting are saved in the iQ series mic itself and will be applied when using it with other apps.

Can’t set the sample rate

Rode Rec was better. But has stopped working :/

The old version of the iXY mic was so much better . This new I’ve feels like junk. Very disappointed.

Wasted Two Bucks - Hope You Don’t

So I was trying to use some of the auto features and it said those weren’t available. So I found the pro version and it did literally nothing more for me.

Those features are apparently tied to the microphones.

I have trusted Zoom for many years and I love my H4n, but this kind of shady game is a quick way to shed customer loyalty in a hurry. I can’t even tell you how many other people have H4n’s or better because of my recommendations.

Don’t waste your money on this, especially if you trust Zoom and want to keep trusting them.


This is the most useless product I’ve encountered in a long time. Like the free version, this one seems only engineered to “encourage,” purchasing a microphone and seems more like an afterthought than a handy recorder. There isn’t even a way to get the files from the free version INTO this version or even have the Pro version even see the files from the free version.

This is deeply marred my opinion of Zoom and I sincerely hope they either completely remove this dreadful pair of products from existence or improve them to the point they’re actually usable. Seriously. With all the technology at our disposal, and all the power of the iOS infrastructure, that they can’t even allow renaming the files is absurd.

I agree with other reviews. Stop mimicking the hardware limitations. Makes something functional instead of just a gimmick to sell another bit of hardware.

Before I could export my recordings now I cannot

Dear Zoom software developers, I have the iPhone 12 Pro and now I can’t export my recordings to Files or WhatsApp, I have both the Handy Pro and the regular Handy Recorder and they’re both giving me export problems, we need a software update soon. I’ll change my review to 5 stars once it’s fixed!! Also, just like you have an un-do button, you also have a re-do button. I thought the pro version was going to be way better than the regular version but they’re almost identical, I’m disappointed Zoom audio.
