Zoom H6 Overview

This Zoom H6 Portable Recorder Kit from B&H gives location sound mixers and boom operators all the essential elements for capturing high-quality audio, when working run-and-gun-style on films and documentaries.

The kit includes a Zoom H6, which allows for versatile recording techniques with four, low-noise XLR inputs and two swappable capsules for X/Y stereo and mid-side field recording. A 64GB SD card is provided to get you started right away.

The Sennheiser MKE 600 shotgun mic helps handle common production sound challenges, with its high level of directivity and a frequency response optimized for dialog. The mic comes with an Auray WSW-007MKII windbuster that greatly reduces wind noise, making the MKE 600 the perfect choice for outdoor recordings.

The Auray ABP-47B aluminum telescoping boompole is wired with an integrated cable and an XLR output at the bottom. The coiled cable with right-angle XLR provides a secure connection with your recorder, while allowing you to move your boompole freely for optimal placement. Also included is an Auray DUSM-1 shockmount that isolates the microphone from vibration and absorbs movement when the boom is "swinging".

To complete your set up, consider adding a bag to safely hold your recorder, such as the Zoom PCH-6 water-resistant protective case or the K-Tek Stingray medium audio bag (both available separately).

This is a question about the Zoom Folder ...

This is a question about the Zoom Folder Hierarchy or Folder Structure. It seems that within a Zoom Folder, each and every time I start and stop a recording, it creates a NEW FOLDER within the MAIN FOLDER with that SINGLE AUDIO TRACK. Is there a way to record ALL audio tracks together within a single folder? This would make it much faster to edit all of the tracks together once downloaded. This is how Tascam work and is the most logical. If not, any tips on easily gathering the files after recording?
Asked by: Craig
You can record up to 4 tracks In each folder. It will name it as LR1, Zoom01, Zoom02, Zoom03, Zoom04.

Do the XLR inputs on the H6 lock the mic cord into place or, like on the H4, are they susceptible to falling out?
Asked by: Matt
They don’t lock. It’s fine if you are stationary. I wouldn’t try and run around with this setup in a “mobile” environment.

Can you jam timecode into the Zoom H6?

Can you jam timecode into the Zoom H6?
Asked by: Jason
The Zoom H6 does not have any options for dealing with time code. The Zoom F8 and F4 are better bets for uses involving time code.

question

Is this a good mic for interviews? Like voice over quality interview? Im trying to choose between this or the Sennheiser MKE 600 Shotgun mic, some help would be REALLY helpful.
Asked by: Tomas P.
I have compared the Zoom capsules to the MKE via YouTube demos and bought the MKE. It’s got a nice ‘broadcast tone’ but mildly so and not gauzy like an SM7b. It also has less noise and greater off-axis rejection than any of the Zoom capsules. Also, it’s free from the proprietary tethering which afflict the capsules. The mic is much larger and heavier, however. Ideally, you’d get both the MKE and an external recorder like this H6 or similar. I’d consider the capsules for limited budget, convenience & stereo recording but not for the utmost in sound quality, directionality or independence.

Can you record a mix down of 4 mics rather than ...

Can you record a mix down of 4 mics rather than or in addition to individual channels?
Asked by: Ari
From my experience with the H6, and after looking through the manual, I don't believe you can record a mix-down at the same time as recording the individual multi-track inputs. Nor can you record that mix instead of recording the individual tracks. Once the multitrack recordings are completed, you can set up the mixer and record a stereo mix-down file using the playback of the individual tracks. If you already have a separate stereo recorder, during recording you could use the mixer of the H6 and take signals out the TRS mini Line Output jack on the H6 into the line inputs of your other recorder to capture a mono or stereo mix during the live session.

Does the H6 have output capabilities if you ...

Does the H6 have output capabilities if you wanted to use as a remote unit for an on-site broadcast? (Or is it strictly a recording device?)
Asked by: M
The Zoom H6 has two unbalanced stereo outputs on tip-ring-sleeve (TRS) mini (aka 3.5mm) jacks. On the left side is the headphone output with volume control, designed to feed into low impedance loads. And on the bottom is a fixed-level line output jack designed to feed into higher impedance loads. Both outputs get their signal from the built-in stereo mixer in the H6. Either one could be used to connect to whatever other device you are using to do the broadcast. I wouldn't count on these for long cable runs, but for short cable connections either should be fine. If you also have a laptop, the H6 can serve as the audio interface to feed audio sources into the computer where an audio application can create the mix for your broadcast.

Does this come with a Lavalier mic? If not, then which Lav mic is recommended for use with the Zoom H6?
Asked by: Anonymous
The H6 does not come with a Lavalier mic. I went with the Sennheiser EW 112P G3-A omni-directional EW system. I've used since October 2018 and so far it's paired perfectly with the H6.
