  1. I'm glad I held off for so long. I didn't like the H4N interface and the H6 was out of my price range. DR40 was great, but never the lack of control dials made it kinda clunky to work with on the fly. This looks like exactly what I've been looking for! 😀

    The question is does it do AUTO levelling? What makes the H4n so useful is it's AUTO mode.
