    Zoom H6 Review - Six Inputs of Separation

    The H4n isn't the crown jewel of the Zoom recorder range anymore! The H6, with more inputs and interchangeable mics, has arrived to take its place.

Zoom H6
I use it for a month almost every day.

I have not tried "other models in the same genre but rather pro machines (DAT location, Nagra IV S, mixer etc ...) with Schoeps or Brüel & Kjær and other AKG. This does not me because I'm a specialist rather studio. H6 I waited for preamps corrects.J 'still have a little trouble deciding on the choice between MS and XY.

What I like most is the ability to change the pickups as the objectives of photos and all entries device. The sound quality is excellent catch for the price.
Another thing that kills the sound card. plug it into a computer pronto, giving you access to 6in and 2 out. I tried taking a Martin guitar and then I could go in VST without latency (64 samples so imperceptible with a pick). So if you are looking for a great sound card nomadic ben voila! This is a great tool to get sound for sound guys too rich and sound designers and musicians (you can play the vase, fork or rain stick). I added that 96kHz 24-bit pitch changes become very interesting. I also think people in the image, with 6 in you are ready to ambiances, HF, and even four dynamic phantom power supplies! I think famous brands have exploded the price for the third possibilities !
So, really, head over to this machine.

What I like least is the ergonomics a bit old and not lit in the dark retro buttons and lack of function macro front. trims should have been notched because the slightest touch could turn ca. Finally, regarding fied Sound recorder, the Tascam DR 40 apparently fared better so feel free to listen and read the tests to suit your needs! Another small stone garden threading attachment to a tripod. ben if it records sound a thread mic stand is not logical (or failing adapter)?

Zoom H6
I'm interested in a recorder is primarily ... sound. Compared to other Zoom, often criticized for their side "sound a little veiled" Zoom H6 is really good. I tested the external microphone (MS) round interview and it gives a really suprenant result clarity. He has no problems with plosives, used close to the inverse of the micro XY is very sensitive, perhaps too (hard to put it on a table with a small tripod, the risk of hearing all noise table recording).

Tested with external microphones, in a comparative test with other recorders (Marantz PDM 661 or Sound Device 702), again, the zoom is doing surprisingly well. The sound is not of infinite wealth, but it is very clear, plus, it seems to me, with the Zoom H4n.

Large + otherwise: set very fast route (Zoom H4n, especially in Stamina mode is a disaster on this point), very crisp display, ability to save a copy of the record-12dbs, to be sure have not saturated track.

And it is a true multitrack childish of use (load itself to a mixed after course).

Really, a recorder that I recommend to all points of view.
