This Zoom H6 Recorder Podcast Kit with enCORE 100 Mic from B&H brings the elements necessary to begin recording a 1-person podcast within minutes of opening the box. The Blue enCore 100 dynamic microphone features a cardioid pickup pattern that does a great job capturing speakers near the mic but without picking up unwanted sounds further away. The included Auray telescoping tabletop stand makes positioning the mic a snap. The XLR cable plugs right into the H6 recorder, which features high-quality mic preamps and records to an SD card.
The H6 sports three other XLR/TRS inputs when you're ready to add more guest mics, and it can be expanded to accommodate up to six mics with the EXH-6 dual XLR/TRS combo input capsule (available separately). The recorder also features easy-to-reach controls and a large, full-color LCD display angled so it's easy to read in all environments when making on-the-fly adjustments or editing in the field. The system is fully standalone but also ready to interface with a computer for live streaming or for more elaborate post-production work.
Zoom H6 All Black 6-Input / 6-Track Portable Handy Recorder with Single Mic Capsule (Black)
While the original gray H6 is bundled with two mic capsules and premium accessories, the Zoom H6 All Black portable handheld recorder features a sleek black finish and a single mic capsule, making ideal for bands, multi-instrumentalists, and podcasters who don't immediately need the extras. With its X/Y stereo microphone capsule, six versatile mic/line inputs, and up to 6-track recording, the H6 All Black 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 All Black 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 All Black 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.
