    The Zoom H6 Handy Recorder is a portable field or location recorder which is ideally suited to news gathering, sound for picture work or even music recording. It offers 6 track simultaneous recording, with an addition L/R stereo backup). What sets the Zoom H6 apart from any other location recorders of this type is that it features interchangeable mic capsules. The Zoom H6 ships with a stereo XY capsule, and a Mid-Side capsule too. XY is a great choice for standard stereo recording, as it gives excellent breadth while remaining clarity of the audio in the centre. Recording using the Mid-Side capsule actually allows you to change the stereo width of the audio after recording, which is great for post processing.

    In addition to these 2 capsules, 2 additional input modules are available for the H6 - a highly directional shotgun capsule, and an XLR connection box for attaching external microphones. The H6 is already equipped with 2 XLR inputs, so this option brings the total to 4 - perfect for a complex shoot with multiple boom or spot mics plus lavaliers. It also makes the H6 extremely useful for recording multiple musical instruments at once.
