"Love it...Not bad...Great sound....handle carefully...Connect the recorder to a sound source/s, set your levels, press record, and forget it until your shoot or event is over.4 channel recording allows dual line inputs to be recorded along with that of the internal mics giving you many auduio feeds to choose from in post.My workflow is to now place the DR-40 on a stand, placed near a speaker to capture audio frim that source, and to connect an XLR cable from the house mixer."

The H6 Handy from Zoom is a portable handheld recorder and USB audio interface that features an interchangeable microphone system. The recorder ships with both XY and mid-side microphone modules, foam windscreen, four AA batteries, USB cable, Cubase LE and a hard carrying case. Optional module attachments can be purchased for expanded functionality.

The H6 Handy allows for versatile recording techniques, giving you several options right out of the box. The included XYH-6 XY microphone module is made up of two matched unidirectional condenser microphones and is intended for capturing accurate, phase-correct stereo audio. The module allows you to adjust the angle of the two mics to either 90 degrees, or for a wider stereo image, 120 degrees.

For situations that call for audio that allows for width control over your stereo image after it has been recorded, the XY module can be switched out for the MSH-6 mid-side stereo microphone module. Contrary to the appearance of the capsule, the mid-side module actually contains two elements positioned on top of one another: a unidirectional mic which faces forward (mid), and a bi-directional mic set perpendicular to it (side). In addition to providing you the ability to adjust the width of your stereo audio after it has been recorded, MS recording also provides true mono compatibility, a factor that comes into play in situations such as television production.

In addition, the H6 is equipped with four XLR/TRS combo inputs for connecting external mic/line sources such as microphones or mixers. All four inputs and each of the mic modules are equipped with their own preamps with dedicated gain knobs that are easily accessible whether you have the unit mounted to your camera, or strapped over your shoulder. Also, each of the four combo inputs has its own -20dB pad.

The recorder allows you to record up to six channels at once and stores them to SDXC memory cards up to 128GB in size. It also features a backup-record option that tracks a duplicate of the left and right channels with -12db input gain. This means that if you find that you have tracked your main audio too loud and that distortion has occurred in your audio, you will have a backup stereo mix with 12 db more headroom as a fail-safe. The unit also doubles as a 6-in/2-out USB audio interface and it can be used with your computer running the included Cubase LE or other DAW software.

"Love it...Love it....Great sound quality too....I've only had this Zoom H6 recorder for about 3 weeks, so have not been able to check out the compressors and limiters, but so far the clarity of the recorded audio is outstanding with the Left/Right or with the Mid-Side included microphones."

The H5 Handy from Zoom is a compact, portable handheld digital recorder that is capable of four-track recording and features an interchangeable, modular microphone system. The recorder ships with an XY microphone capsule and is compatible with the existing line of H6 modules including the optional shotgun mic and XLR/TRS input modules.

The included XY stereo mic module provides two matched unidirectional condenser microphones set at a 90 degree angle, and features a built-in shockmount system and a maximum SPL of 140dB. Additionally, the recorder is equipped with two inputs for external sources, allowing you to record simultaneously with the included stereo XY mic for a total of four input channels. Each input is controllable by its own analog gain knob, and also has a -20dB pad.

The recorder also has an LCD screen and a side-mounted toggle control for navigating through the menu options. It gives you fast access to transport functions, offering physical control buttons right underneath the screen, and conveniently stores its recorded audio to external SD cards.

In addition to the detachable X/Y capsule, the recorder also ships with a foam windscreen, two AA batteries, a USB cable, WaveLab LE (download), Cubase LE (download), a 2GB SD card, and a hard plastic case.

B&H # ZOQ2N MFR # ZQ2N

As a musician, having a camera like the Zoom Q2n Handy Video Recorder lets you easily record yourself, whether for the intent of practicing or building a fan base. Video clips are recorded as high-quality MOV files in 1080p or 720p resolutions at either 24 or 30 fps onto convenient microSD cards. The fixed-focus wide-angle lens with a 160° FOV can capture you and your instrument from only a few feet away, ensuring that the microphones can pick up sound clearly. A wide f/2.0 aperture on the lens can produce clear images in dimly lit situations and is augmented by ten selectable scene modes that correspond to popular performance situations. These modes include 'Concert Light'—which automatically adjusts for changing lighting conditions—to 'Concert Lo-Lit' for dimly lit rooms. An automatic setting, which chooses the optimal scene mode based on ambient light, is also available.

The Q2n houses its stereo condenser mics arranged in an X/Y pattern for clear stereo imaging without phase cancellation issues. Since the mics can handle sound pressure levels up to 120 dB, the Q2n won't shy away from loud rock stages. Audio can be recorded separately from video and saved directly to high-quality WAV files at up to 24-bit/96 kHz.

Plugging the Q2n into your computer or iOS device via USB (may require separately available hardware) unlocks even more functionality. Open up your DAW and you can record directly to new or existing projects. Alternatively, the Q2n can be used as a high-quality webcam for streaming over the web using YouTube Live or other popular streaming platforms.

For power, the Q2n conveniently uses two AA batteries (included) which offer up to two hours of recording time in 1080p, or three hours at 720p. A 1/4"-20 tripod thread lets you secure the Q2n to any standard tripod or mounting accessory for versatile placement options. Whether on the road recording impromptu sound ideas, or reaching out to your fan base over the web, the Q2n can be a valuable tool to any musician.

Designed to provide big Hollywood sound on an affordable indie budget, the Zoom F4 is a 6-input / 8-track professional field recorder featuring super-low-noise preamps and timecode with pinpoint accuracy. The unit provides recording and playback resolutions up to 24-bit/192 kHz with impressive audio specs including an extremely low noise floor (-127 dBu EIN) and high gain (up to +75 dB), with +4 dB line-level inputs. The on-board temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) generates timecode at 0.2 ppm accuracy and supports all standard drop-frame and non-drop formats, as well as jam sync for external devices.

The advanced on-board limiters provide overload protection for all inputs and outputs, which lets you capture audio in a wide range of environments. Limiting can be applied simultaneously at full resolution with 10 dB of headroom and features controls for setting threshold, attack, and release.

The F4 offers four combo XLR-1/4" inputs, a 1/8" stereo input, and includes a Zoom mic-capsule input for recording six discrete tracks with an additional stereo mix, all at full 24-bit/192 kHz resolution. With gain linking capability between the various inputs, the F4 is suitable for recording audio in VR formats, specifically Ambisonics. Plug in a mic like the Sennheiser AMBEO, for example, and you'll find you can control all four capsules at once from the F4, and thus, capture the 360° audio necessary for immersive entertainment. 

Additionally, inputs 5/6 can function as a camera return for audio-monitoring only for confidence checks, or can accept two additional mic/line signals via the EXH-6 combo input capsule (available separately). The dual-SD card slot features simultaneous recording to both cards allowing you to make a backup or split recording with all eight tracks on one card and a stereo mix on the other.

Each of the four XLR-1/4" inputs offers a dedicated preamp with gain control, phantom power, a six-segment LED level meter, plus a Record Ready and PFL switch. In addition to the 1/4" headphone output with a dedicated volume control, the F4 provides two main balanced XLR outputs, as well as two sub outs on a single unbalanced 1/8" stereo mini-jack, enabling easy connection to a camera. All timecode I/O is provided on BNC connectors and the unit includes a variable-frequency slate-tone generator to confirm levels.

The front panel offers an output button, which provides quick access to the unit's outputs, while the option button offers quick access to TC Jam, Trim Link, Clear Clip and other important shortcuts. An easy-to-read 1.9" LCD display is suitable for use in all lighting environments including dark low-light sets to bright sunlight. The on-board mixer not only provides user-adjustable level, pan, and input/output delay, but also offers high-pass filtering for noise and wind reduction, phase inversion, and Mid-Side decoding. The F4 ships with a camera-mount adapter, a DHC-1 DC-HIROSE adapter, an AC power adapter, and download codes for Cubase LE and Wavelab LE.

The master XLR outputs can be set for analog or digital operation, and are capable of sending 4 channels of 24-bit AES/EBU signals.

The 552 also features an internal stereo recorder, which can capture WAV or MP3 files at either 16-bit or 24-bit; with sample rates from 44.1kHz all the way up to 96kHz. The unit accepts SD and SDHC flash memory cards, which are widely-available and feature no moving parts for exceptional reliability. A simple joystick control on the 552's front panel lets you take command of recording functions.

All of this technology is packed into a compact unit that weighs less than 5 pounds. The top and bottom chassis panels are constructed from molded, metalized carbon fiber for exceptional durability. The front panel is gasketed for excellent moisture resistance. The unit can operate on a set of 4 AA batteries, or an external 10-18VDC power supply.
