New Gear: Zoom H6 Handy Audio Recorder

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 and optional modules 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 XY microphones are intended for capturing accurate, phase-correct stereo audio for field recording and similar applications. The XY module can be switched out for the mid-side stereo microphone, which can be used to make recordings that allow for added control to the width of your stereo image.

In addition, the H6 is also equipped with four XLR/TRS combo inputs for connecting external mic/line sources such as microphones or mixers. It allows you to record up to six channels at once and stores them to SDXC memory cards up to 128GB in size. The unit also doubles as a 6-in/2-out USB audio interface and it can be used with your computer running DAW software.
