H6 Black - The Recorder That Does It AllThe H6 is the ultimate portable recorder. With its advanced preamps and interchangeable capsules, the H6 delivers unmatched versatility and award-winning quality. The durable, rugged exterior and ability to record continuously for over 20 hours on four AA batteries means you can record almost anywhere, from live concert recording to podcasting, videography to studio recording and more. The H6's USB port enables it to serve as a stereo or multi-channel audio interface for your computer or iPad.

Sound for Every Scene
Featuring interchangeable mic capsules, four combo inputs and six tracks of quality recording, the H6 is ready to record on any set and in any scene the director throws at you. Whether you're a musician creating your own unique masterpiece, or a sound designer looking for that perfect sound effect, the H6 will become your most trusted companion.

XYH-6 X/Y Capsule
The H6's included X/Y capsule employs two angled high-quality unidirectional mics which are sensitive to signals coming from the front, but less to signals from the sides and rear. X/Y recording is optimum when you want to cover a wide area yet still capture a strong centre image, making it the perfect choice for all types of live stereo recording.


Zoom MSH-6 Mid-Side Capsule

The MSH-6 allows you to do Mid-Side recording with your Zoom H5 or H6 Handy Recorder, or Zoom Q8 Handy Video Recorder. With the MSH-6, you can capture a fully mono-compatible stereo image that can be adjusted either during recording or in postproduction, making it a great choice for film and video applications.

Ins & Outs
The H6 offers four XLR/TRS combo jacks with dedicated pad switches and gain control for distortion-free recording.
The H6 features two 1/8" outputs, a stereo line out as well as a headphone out with dedicated volume control.

Free Recording & Editing Software
