I'm very new to sound recording.
I wanted to make videos with good sound quality, then I bought Zoom H4n Pro to use it as an audio interface.
I use Mac; I connect H4n to the Mac via USB. I could set up QuickTime such that it records my screen as visual input and what I say to H4n as audio input.
Now, I want to hear what I'm saying to H4n while recording. Because I think if I can hear it, I could speak better (it's like Karaoke, we sing better if we hear well what we sing).
There is a headphone socket on the left side of H4n. I tried to plug a headphone while recording, but I could not hear anything.
Does anyone know how I could set up my Mac & H4n & QuickTime (or other software) such that I could hear what I'm saying to H4n while recording? If I need to buy some other equipments to enable this, I could...
PS: a youtuber with a microphone (rather than h4n) and a headphone, I guess he could hear well what he is saying without lags. Isn't it possible with h4n?
PS: From this video, we could observe that
- the audio of the video comes from the h4n
- a cable is plugged into the headphone socket of the h4n on the left
- the guy is probably listening to the output of h4n (rather than the microphone on the right).
So how could he achieve this?
