In this video I will demonstrate the audio quality of the Zoom H6 portable six track recorder with interchangeable Mics.
I shot this video using the Rode NT-1 studio condenser microphone plugged into one of the XLR ports in the zoom unit.
I also take some time to test out and demonstrate the audio form the H6-XY capsule and the MSH-6 Mid/side capsule along with various other demonstrations which are at the end of the video.
If you’re a YouTuber, looking to get better quality audio in your productions, a Podcaster looking to connect multiple microphones in a portable recorder at home or in the field the Zoom H6 is a great option for you.
Note I mention that it doesn’t come with a power adaptor. Keep in mind that viewers have pointed out that you can power it via the provided mini usb port using an iphone charger or even usb battery pack…..
NOTE: Towards the end of the video I demonstrate a lapel microphone connected into the XLR port on the side. Now the official word by rode is that you should use the Rode VXLR+ 3.5mm Mini-Jack to 3-Pin XLR(M) Adaptor w/ Power Convertor. It will downgrade the 12V phantom power to 3.5V which is the recommended amount of power for their lav mic’s. This is a safer option in order to avoid blowing out your lav mic…
