Does Zoom RC4 Remote Work with Zoom Q3? - 01/08/10 04:37 AM

I bought the Zoom Q3 and threw in the Zoom RC4 remote control based on statements that the remote "works with many Zoom products" and "others also bought the RC4".

I was surprised that the Q3 does not have a dedicated remote control jack despite its avowed similarity to the H4N.

I'm wondering if I should return the RC4 - any chance I can make it work by plugging it into the headphone/line jack?

The manufacturer's site says the RC4 remote is for the H4N. It's not mentioned as an accessory for the Q3.

I'm not sure what the avowed similarity is between the Q3 and H4N is - they're completely different products in two different lines.

I would not plug the remote into the headphone/line jack, you could risk damage to the electronics. It wasn't meant for the Q3, so I'd return it.
