Potentially a pro-sounding m/s recording capsule

Evy09, 19.01.2018
For those coming from different products, this capsule, both compatible with the new H5 and 6 models, give you a really natural M/S separation recording with absolute "in your face" mono-compatibility... Actually for a reasonable price!
Maybe a little noise-floor, but we're dealing with an absolutely manageable one.
For solidity and versatile integration with the Zoom mic, this is worth your bank.

A round thing - the MSH-6

Mikroton SBF, 18.12.2014
The MSH-6 is delivered as standard to the Zoom H-6 recorder, next to the XYH-6 for XY stereo sound. Unfortunately, the MSH-6 is not included with the Zoom H-5 recorder, but also, like the H-6, has the possibility of MS stereo sound. So to the H-5 the MS microphone must be purchased separately. Thus one approaches from the expenditure the H-6 with its almost complete equipment quite close. However, I personally was the H-6 too large, respectively, I am never in the embarrassment to work with up to eight channels at once. The H-5 was therefore simply more according to my wishes, even if I had to buy the MS microphone.

Although the XYH-5 supplied with the H-5 already has very good results in the day-to-day life (I did not know that omnidirectional microphones can make XY stereo, or is this a mistake in the technical data?) Capsule to extended possibilities for influencing the stereopanorama, from extra-wide to very narrow. For this purpose, the recorder must be set to operate with MS-Raw before recording on the L / R channels in order to be able to use these possibilities later. Otherwise you get a normal XY-Stereosignal, albeit of very good quality.

In addition, a plug-in is available for the post-processing of the MS Raw file from the zoom homepage, which is available for most operating systems (Windows XP to 7 and Mac except Yosemite). For Windows computers, an ASIO driver may need to be loaded. The plug-ins are suitable for most DAW controllers, but I had problems with Audacity 2.0.5 for Mac because the plug-in was not operable and ultimately led to the crash of Audacity. I hope that an update will help.
With the plug-in, the impression of space can then be adapted to the project or its own intention.
In addition, the MS stereo sound system is also suitable for Broadcaster, in order to provide a monosignal with all the acoustic information for VHF transmissions.

The operation is in principle nonsense. The MS capsule is simply plugged into the microphone slot. The level is set via the dial on the microphone housing. Everything very intuitive. It would be desirable to have a kind of locking of the wheel, because the adjusting wheel is easily adjusted.

The sound of the MS capsule is very satisfactory. First analyzes of the frequency spectrum showed results reaching into inaudible frequency ranges. The sound adjustment is rather high, the basses are not too short. Overall, it meets my taste quite well, but I could imagine that other ears want a bit more bass.

The unit is quite sensitive (-37 dB for the unidirectional microphone and -39 dB for the bi-directional microphone), the proximity effect is also very pronounced. A windscreen is mandatory for outdoor use. This must unfortunately also be purchased with the accessory pack (at H-5).

The workmanship is very good and durable. There is nothing to criticize.

Conclusion
The zoom MSH-6 has for me the stuff to the all-round microphone. On the one hand, it can function as a normal XY micro, but at the same time it can be switched to MS mode for more demanding tasks. The high-pitched sound meets my taste, but the wind sensitivity is a small but solvable problem.
