Six channels “to go”

The Zoom H6 Black is a versatile mobile digital recorder that can simultaneously record up to six audio tracks. It features four independent mic/line inputs in XLR/jack format, and each channel can supply 12, 24, or 48 V of phantom power, thus allowing high-grade studio microphones to be used without an external power supply. The remaining two channels are equipped with an XY stereo microphone (XYH-6), which, much like a camera lens, can be removed and replaced either with a mid-side microphone (MSH-6) for better control of the stereo field, a shotgun microphone (SGH-6) for increased directivity, or a module featuring two additional XLR/jack inputs (EXH-6). The Zoom H6 Black will thus appeal to anyone looking for a high-performance and easily transportable multi-track recording solution.

The ultimate portable multi-tracker

The Zoom H6’s preamps have plenty of gain and an excellent signal-to-noise ratio, indispensable for optimum-quality recordings. The H6 also features a colour LCD screen that provides easy access to a variety of functions, such as auto-record, pre-record, back-up and saving commands, and the activation of onboard effects such as the low-cut filter, compressor, and limiter. Audio data can be stored as high-resolution WAV files (at up to 24 bit/96 kHz resolutions) or as MP3 files at selectable bit rates (48 kbps to 320 kbps). All files can be backed up to SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards with a storage capacity of up to 128 GB (not included as standard). The Zoom H6 Black may be powered by four AA (LR6) batteries, which will provide over 20 hours of battery life. However, should you be using several microphones that require phantom power, it might be preferable to connect the H6 to an external battery or even to the mains via its USB socket.

Compact and powerful

With its six input channels and excellent preamps, the Zoom H6 Black will always provide top-quality multi-track recordings, whether on the move or in the comfort of the studio. The Zoom H6 is a versatile, professional-level multi-track recording solution for musicians who want to record song demos, rehearsals, or concerts and for podcasters, journalists, and filmmakers looking to record on the go. It is also much more compact and ergonomic than the regular setup of a laptop/tablet coupled with an audio interface. Furthermore, the Zoom H6 also functions as a 6-in, 2-out audio interface for PC, Mac, and iOS devices.

About Zoom

Founded in 1983, the Japanese company Zoom manufactures a variety of audio equipment, including a range of portable "handy" recorders as well as multi-effects processors, effects pedals, drum machines, and samplers. Over the past thirty years, the company has built a reputation for producing innovative yet affordable products based on original microchip designs. Since the Zoom-9002 (an ultra-compact multi-effects processor that can be attached to a guitar strap) was introduced in 1990, Zoom has become one of the leaders in digital audio processing.

The best sound in the picture

Filmmakers know that audio quality is an essential factor when recording videos, especially if you need to record multiple channels simultaneously. Although its dimensions of 77.8 x 152.8 x 47.8 mm and its weight of 280 g place it amongst the "larger" recorders in its class, the H6 can nevertheless easily be fixed to a camera using a hot shoe adapter and provide the optimum multi-track recording conditions for your film. It can also be mounted on a dedicated stand and its monitor output sent to the input of a DSLR, thus saving the picture and soundtrack simultaneously to the same video file – while still allowing you to rework the audio on separate tracks in post-production. The independent headphone output is particularly useful for monitoring in this scenario.

Bought it to early
thomann-user-687944, 16.11.2020
Sad I had to buy it at that point in time for recording small events to share them online, now I would buy the new bigger version H8 as it has all the updated functionality and also more input.
As the black version of the H6 came out recently it would have been great they also would have updated the specs to have usb-c and so on.

The biggest disadvantage is that this can not really be used as a handheld device since casing is not sound wise disconnected from the microphone which is a bit disappointing for a device in that category

Amazing sound quality
gcomas, 11.04.2021
I absolutely recommend the Zoom H6. It is a robust, portable and easy to use sound recorder.
The most professional device for amateur filmmakers.
It is ideal for sampling or podcast recording (the default 4 inputs makes it the only needed central recording station).
The power adapter allows to be used without batteries.
Lots of fun ;)

Zoom H6 nice and easy
Andy C Gsy, 02.11.2020
The Zoom H6 is very easy to use and has some old analogue features that is what you want with a basic hand held recorder. If playing to a large audience, you need to get in right in the band or thereabouts but great for small band recordings, especially rehearsals when learning new tunes.

The multitracker is a great tool for musicians of all levels. It really can be a ‘studio in a box’ replacing many of the components of a traditional studio.
