Ideal for bands, multi-instrumentalists, and podcasters, the Zoom H6 portable handheld recorder lets you quickly record up to six simultaneous input signals regardless of your audio experience. With two swappable stereo microphone capsules, six versatile mic/line inputs, and up to 6-track recording, the H6 is both user-friendly and easily expandable.
Like other H-Series Handy recorders such as the H4n Pro and H5, you can hold it in your hand, attach it to a mic stand or tripod, or mount it to a camera (shoe mount available separately); the H6 packs an impressive array of features into a rugged, rubberized body that's more than ready to meet the varied demands of musicians, content creators, videographers, and sound designers.
From the intuitive, tactile controls to the plentiful battery life and powerful audio processing functions, the H6 is well equipped for producing pristine audio for complete musical arrangements, independent films, and panel podcasts. It can supply phantom or plug-in power for condenser mics, or accept direct connections from synths, keyboards, drum machines, or +4 dB line-level mixers. No matter the source, selectable auto-recording and pre-recording ensure that you'll never miss the start of a take, and stereo safety track recording provides duplicate tracks at a lower level to avoid distortion.
Special Recording Functions
The H6 offers selectable recording functions designed to prevent you from accidentally missing the start of a performance. By keeping the previous two seconds (one second at 96 kHz) of audio whenever you press the record button, the pre-record option ensures that you'll never cut off the beginning of a great take. Auto-record can automatically start recording when a user-set sound level is detected, making it great for voice-activated recording.
Backup record enables the H6 to automatically record a duplicate of the L/R input with 12 dB less input gain. Even if your original track is distorted, chances are the backup version will be fine!
Supports External Remote Control
Use the RCH-6 remote (available separately in the APH-6 accessory pack) to control the transport, arm tracks, and adjust volume at a distance while eliminating handling noise.
