Zoom H6 Black HANDY RECORDER allows six-track simultaneous field recording.
Updated with a sleek black finish, and with some ‘fat’ trimmed from the package price (and contents), H6 Black is a recorder that excels in the field as a portable sound-gathering machine, and also sits comfortably in the controlled environent – recording conversations, podcasts, live band recording, and more.
Quick look – aside from the 4x XLR and TRS combo connectors for mic or line inputs (two on each side), there is also an ONBOARD microphone capusule included. The stereo X/Y configuration can be easily changed between 90° and 120°, depending on the flavour you’re going for. Unlike the ‘old’ X/Y capsule included with the original H6, this one is also black.
Gone but not forgotten – part of the incredible flexibility of H6 is the ability to interchange microphone modules. Pull out the X/Y module from the ‘top’ of your H6, and you can substitute with the additionally available SGH-6 shotgun capsule, the EXH-6 ‘extra input’ module, or the MSH-6 mid-side microphone capsule. The wonderful-sounding MSH-6 was included in the original H6 package, but in an effort to keep costs for everyone to a minimum, it is now an optional extra (and a very good one at that).
Aside from that, let’s revisit our brief description of the original H6 – because it’s just as apt today as it was back in 2013 – THIS offering from Zoom is more than ‘just a handy recorder’, it’s a 6-track beast!
