    I'm afraid you'll have to read the manual that came with it, which probably has a quick-start guide, or Google "Zoom H2n manual", or look up "Zoom H2n" on YouTube. Good luck. PS - these things are not that hard to use. Put in batteries, turn it on, take it from there.

    Hi MatanLevy. I have a Zoom H1, and use it often to record my band. As Reedman1 suggested, there likely will be some suggestions in the documentation.

    For me, I like to put the record out in front of the band about 10 feet. The downside is that I risk picking up a lot from nearby audience members.

    Because of space limitations, on some gigs, I'm forced to keep it on stage. In this situation, I avoid putting it directly in front of any of our amps. I sometimes seem to lose some of the highs, depending on the position.

    But in both cases, it works out pretty well. Experiment with different positions.
