The Zoom H6 Black Version is capable of handling a vast array of recording situations from live sound recording to professional broadcasts and is arguably the most professional portable recorder ever. The H6 includes an X/Y capsule features 2 cardoid mics, adjustable between 90 and 120 degrees for a wide but focused stereo image. Also available is a shotgun capsule for video recording, a shock-mounted X/Y capsule for minimising vibrations and handling noise as well as a dual XLR/TRS combo capsule to turn the H6 black into a 6-track recorder when more inputs are needed.

The H6 black features 4 combo input jacks for connecting microphones, instruments or line level sources, each with individual volume controls as well as a -20 dB pad for attenuating high level signals. Audio can be monitored through the built-in speaker or the headphone output and can also be sent to a DSLR camera via the line output. When connected to a computer the Zoom H6 acts as an audio interface and on-board processing allows audio to be recorded with effects, without latency. Up to 20 hours of audio at 24 bit/96 kHz can be recorded on just 4 AA batteries (included).


Podcast Anywhere

From the studio to remote locations, podcasts are produced everywhere.  With inputs for every guest, the battery-powered H6 is a complete portable podcasting solution.

*Optional EXH-6 mic capsule required
