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

Record All Channels Live or Overdub Layers
SD Card Recording and Audio Interface Functionality
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.

Porta Brace AR-ZH6 Case for Zoom H6 Pro Handy Recorder
Designed to fit Zoom H6 Handy Recorders, the Porta Brace AR-ZH6 is a carrying case made out of durable 1000D cordura nylon. This keeps your H6 safe from abrasions whilst in the field. The case offers easy access to controls and cable inputs, all while providing protection. Cable outlets and the prominent front display window are secured by touch-fasteners; when you pull them apart, you can access volume controls. The sides, which house their own controls and cable inputs, are also protected with touch fasteners. The case is large enough to stow an extra Zoom capsule as well, so that you can change from the X/Y to the shotgun quickly.
Open the front panel of the case and you'll find the display protected by a clear vinyl screen, one that lets you view your levels and recording time with ease. The H6 has four prominent analog volume dials for input level adjustment of microphones, and the AR-ZH6 takes this into account by giving you a segmented clear vinyl window that tightly overlays on top of these four dials, so that you don't jostle them accidentally.
Should you wish to clip the case to a strap or belt loop, a small attachment point is provided. The item, however, does not come with a strap or a belt loop. The case is lightweight at 0.2 lb.
