Zoom H6 Handy Portable Digital Audio Field Recorder with Interchangeable Microphone System
The Zoom H6 is the world's first 6-track portable field digital audio recorder, with an interchangeable microphone system. It has four advanced mic preamps, and combined with the interchangeable mic capsules, this is the flagship of the Zoom portable recorder range. It is ideal for many applications - live recordings, professional film/video work, live broadcast, or electronic news gathering.

Interchangeable Microphone System - 2 Mic Capsules included
Zoom has six interchangeble mic capsules available, that can be swapped out as easily as the lenses of a camera. The supplied X/Y capsule employs two angled unidirectional mics, and is perfect for all types of live stereo recording. The MSH-6 Mid-Side mic capsule is also supplied. The Mid microphone picks up signal coming from the center, while the Side microphone creates ambience and directionality by adding or subtracting information from either side. A perfect capsule for film, video and television projects.

Multitrack Music Recording
Plug in the optional EXH-6 Dual XLR/TRS capsule and your H6 becomes a personal 6-track studio with six discrete line- or mic-level inputs, each with its own volume control and pad. Record and overdub up to 99 takes in high-resolution audio, then mix down to a stereo MP3 for posting to your favorite website.

Never miss a take - Pre-Record, Backup-Record, and Auto-Record
The Pre-Record function automatically keeps the H6 silently but continuously recording in the background, all the time. Then, when you hit the RECORD button, it keeps the previous two seconds and appends it to the beginning of the file. When turned on during the recording of WAV files, the H6 automatically records a duplicate set of L/R tracks, but with 12dB less input gain. Even if the original L/R track is distorted, chances are the Backup version is fine. The Auto-Record function allows the H6 to automatically start recording when a certain level of sound is detected. When turned ON and the RECORD button is pressed, the H6 doesn’t immediately start recording; instead, it goes into a standby mode; as soon as an incoming signal exceeds the Start Level you’ve set, recording begins.
