H6 Light and shadow

Synthasis, 17.01.2015
17.1.2015 I bought myself the H6, because I have on my H4n more often 1-2 additional line / mic inputs with live recordings of our performances missed. This Magnel fixes this beautiful device. Likewise, I bought almost all available accessories

The supplied MS- Micro delivers a really transparent stereo image, of which I am very impressed. Likewise, the directional effect of the directional microphone is impressive. In order to judge this correctly, however, the comparison is missing.

The flexible switching of the 4 input tracks to 1-2 stereo effects (1/2 stereo & 3 & 4 mono or 1 & 2 mono & 3/4 stereo or 1/2 & 3/4 stereo or 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 mono) Compressors, Limiter and HP filters, just in voice recording these are very good.

The first two tracks (left in the display) are also called L / R and can also be used as two mono or stereo speakers when using the XLR / TSR attachment.

Also the mixing of up to 6 tracks in a stereogram with the choice of the format I find very practical. However, converting a stereo sound to a 128K / bit MP3 file takes quite a long time. I have not measured but felt about as long as the recording itself lasts.

The backup recording, which is reduced by 12db, is a real bringer when it arrives. However, this is only available for the L / R inputs.

Now to a few things, which I find less nice or improved:

- The microphone sensitivity of the XY-Micro is in comparison to that of the H4n at 100% drive control about 5db worse / insensitive, which I -grade also because of the larger membranes of the H6-XY-Micros very surprised and I also annoyed. Grade a Fieldrecorder should be very sensitive at nature recordings / Atmo's. The same is true for the MS-Micro, which provides a similar level as the XY-Micro. For the directional micro, it will probably be similar, but that can not really be compared.
By normalizing the 24bit WAV recording one can compensate for this sensitivity loss a little, but would be a corresponding preamplifier.

- Display: This is quite difficult to read due to the multitude of information to be displayed. Therefore I would have liked an even more contrasting design of the individual elements. With Ü50 I have some problems.
Furthermore, an overdriving is indicated by the flickering of the channel LEDs and a barely visible red line at the top of the meters, but I also wanted both a permanent and a short visible clearly red coloring of parts of the channel description below (eg left And to the right of the number / letter). In the H4n the marking remains at the 0db yes also stand, which I found very helpful. These points can however be determined with an update of the firmware.

Otherwise, a very successful device thanks to the replaceable capsules or other XLR / TSR inputs in addition to the 4 already existing inputs.

On the no longer implemented halls and amps, etc. I can do well, I have not used it yet at the H4n.

Tuner and metronome I have not used as an "electronics engineer" so far

The "Stairville WP Safe Box 3 IP65" is very well suited as a transport case for the H6 with all the capsules, windshields, power supply ministativ, headphones, spare batteries and cables. However, the devices / components have to be partially adjusted to an edge. What does not stand in the description of the case: Under the pimping foam of the deeper side are two foam cubes pre-punched in 1.5cm cubic structure. However, you have to be very careful when pulling out the cubes, because the dimensions allow only one cube wide walls.

Supplement of January 19, 2015: I performed a noise test yesterday: battery operation, XLR / TSR attachment, monospuren, level LR1234 = 10, pad = 0, open inputs.
As a result, the channel 4, in contrast to the other channels, exhibited a strong prickel noise.

Today I could not verify this error (maybe a static charge yesterday?). I will keep watching this ...

Large increase to H4n, but still air ..

Stephan6495, 08.12.2013
I had the h4n around the sound devices 442 to recorden for eb sound stories, h6 is clearly better, it can thanks to the slanting display in the mixertasche let s. recordknopf and hold function perfect, once adjusted with reference tone I must then otherwise eh nothing Continue to operate. However one must unfortunately the. Potis masking since otherwise adjust. Absolutely top is that you now also line signal from the mixer can recorden and thus the preamp of the mixer uses. So for the price a very nice announcement now still scheiten. Timecode then would be very beautiful what los aufm fieldrecordermarkt ...

On the whole, I am very satisfied also the processing is really good, better as h4n likes also the record button which one only has to press once and thus is faster ...
I hope it helps someone is my first rating ever;)
