Zoom H6 6-Input / 6-Track Portable Handy Recorder with Interchangeable Mic Capsules

Overview

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.

Fast, User-Friendly Operability

The H6’s front panel is ergonomically arranged with its most essential and commonly used controls—transport buttons for record, play/pause, stop, back, and forward operations, individual record-arm buttons that double as mute switches during playback, large gain knobs, and pad switches. For added safety, a hold switch disables all front-panel buttons to prevent accidental operation during recording.

Day or night, view vital information such as audio levels, recording time, battery status, and more on the 2″ full-color LCD, which happens to be backlit and angled for maximum visibility.

Instant Access to Gain Adjustments

Each H6 input has its own dedicated gain control knob. There’s no track selection or button pressing required to optimize your recording levels; just turn the dials (clearly labeled from 0 to 10) anytime you need to adjust the gain. If your XLR-1/4″ input sources are so loud that you need even less gain than the preamps provide at the “0” setting, use four front-panel pad switches to attenuate the combo inputs by 20 dB.

Interchangeable Stereo Microphone Capsules

Leave your external mics at home and travel light; the H6 includes two interchangeable stereo microphone capsules. With nothing more than the H6, you’re set to record speech, practice sessions, concerts, or ambient and environmental sounds, even ear-rattling ones up to 136 dB (via the X/Y capsule)!

The XYH-6 capsule provides clear, phase-accurate capture in two different X/Y positions—90° for a tight stereo image or 120° for a wider perspective. Just twist the capsules to their premarked positions to switch between the two configurations.

Switch to the MSH-6 capsule to record in a mid-side configuration. Its front-facing directional element picks up direct signal while the side-facing bidirectional element captures ambience. The H6’s integrated MS decoder allows adjustment to the perceived width of the stereo image, which is beneficial for sound design, broadcasting, or general stereo-to-mono compatibility.

Supports Interchangeable Zoom Mic Capsules

The Zoom mic capsule input on the H6 accommodates Zoom’s line of separately available interchangeable capsules, which can be swapped out as easily as the lenses of a camera. With shock-mounted X/Y and mono or stereo shotgun mic capsules to choose from, you can be ready to record music, dialog, or sound effects without carting an external microphone setup. Opt for the EXH-6 combo input capsule to accept two additional mic/line signals via XLR-1/4″ jacks.

Six Channels of Microphone/Line Inputs

Equipped with four XLR-1/4″ combo inputs and a 3.5mm stereo mini-jack input (on the XYH-6 capsule), the H6 can accommodate condenser microphones, 4 dB balanced line-level sources, or signals from unbalanced instruments with active electronics. Turn on 12, 24, or 48 VDC phantom power to the XLR jacks, or 2.5V plug-in power to the mini jack. Whether you plan on recording studio condenser mics, feeds from wireless receivers, or a lavalier and shotgun mic combo for an interview, the H6’s preamps are ready to deliver low-noise (-120 dB EIN) performance.

Record All Channels Live or Overdub Layers

The H6 boasts 6-channel recording at up to 24-bit / 96 kHz resolution. Record all channels simultaneously or utilize the overdubbing function to add layers of instruments after an initial recording. Adjust levels and pans for your tracks, then use the H6’s internal mixdown function to blend six tracks down to a stereo file.

SD Card Recording and Audio Interface Functionality

Maximize portability by recording directly to an SD card (up to 2GB capacity), SDHC card (up to 32GB capacity), or SDXC card (up to 128GB capacity). A 2GB card will yield over three hours of 16-bit / 44.1 kHz stereo recording time using the BWF-compliant WAV format for uncompressed audio quality and industry-standard file compatibility. Note that media cards are available separately, and larger capacity cards will increase startup times.

Alternatively, use the H6 as a 6-in/2-out USB 2.0 audio interface at up to 24-bit / 96 kHz. For audio interface operation with an iPad (Apple Camera Connection Kit required and available separately), select USB stereo mode, which offers two channels in and out at up to 16-bit / 48 kHz.

3.5mm Outputs for Simultaneous Hookup to a Camera and Headphones

The H6 boasts 3.5mm line and headphone mini-jack outputs for simultaneously feeding your camera/DSLR and a pair of headphones. Independently adjust the headphone volume via the side-panel volume control. For quick playback reference, a built-in monophonic speaker is also provided.

Powered via AA Batteries or AC Adapter

Power the H6 via four included AA batteries, or plug it into a wall outlet with an AD-17 AC adapter (available separately). Alkaline batteries can keep the H6 running for over 20 hours of continuous 16-bit / 44.1 kHz recording using the X/Y mic capsule, or for over nine hours of nonstop 24-bit / 96 kHz recording using the X/Y mic and the four XLR-1/4″ inputs. When using the H6 in the stereo USB audio interface mode, USB bus powering is possible.

Rugged and Portable, Handheld or Mounted

The durable, ergonomic body lends itself naturally to handheld use. Should you need to mount it on a mic stand or tripod, a threaded hole on the back of the H6 obviates the need for stand adapters. Obtain a hot shoe adapter (available separately) to attach the H6 directly to a DSLR.

Signal Processing Adds Sonic Polish

The H6’s onboard effects allow you to add polish to your recordings. Compression and limiting compensate for fluctuations in input level, while a low-cut filter helps eliminate wind noise, blowing, and other kinds of low-frequency rumble. Normalize files for maximum gain, split them into smaller chunks, and even insert up to 99 marks per recording.

There’s an onboard metronome and tuner, and you can loop playback and adjust pitch and speed independently, making the H6 an ideal tool for phrase training.

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.

Includes Audio Software

The H6 comes with free download licenses for Steinberg’s Cubase LE music production software and WaveLab LE audio editing software, representing a complete audio production toolkit.
