Yes I did initially think of recording my tree being felled with the Olympus LS-100 however that would be a very bad move since my LS-100 is one of those Neal talks about which is extremely sirseptable to wind noise even with a windscreen fitted.

Ah I can hear up to 18 K. But I wana see how much difference I can really hear. Thing is I've done it with an LS-14 but of course this isn't as pro as the H6 is. Maybe an LS-100 would be but saddly couldn't get that.

Inmy jhumble opinion, recording at 96 khz 24 kbps is really a waste of time. Even with perfect hearing most people can't hear above 22 khz anyway.

Unfortunately the chap who has been employed to do it didn’t turn up and I was annoyed about it to say the least so I’ll be following that one up after the Easter holiday break ends, Happy Easter and Happy listening/recording to you all by the way <smile>.

Were you able to record the tree chopping?

Hmm.. I'm not sure where you got that info from?

Unless I'm totally wrong I understand that whatever the sampling rate is set to then that goes so if you're set to 96K 24-bit then go for your life with the whole 6 tracks.

There are two things you have to be aware of and the first is SD card size as you'd need something large to do 6 tracks at 96K 24-bit.

Second is that once the sample rate is chosen then that's all you can down mix to so in other words if you're performing a down mix on the H6 then everything you choose in your project has to be of the same sampling rate.

Ah that's fine. it won't let you go all the way to 96 KHz 24 bits if you go beyond stereo anyways. So Stereo is fine. I just wana hear the recorder's capabilities at full glorious HD.

Unfortunately I'll only be using 2 channels to make a stereo recording, I only have so many microphones you know <smile>.

Ah sure that will be interesting. I'd love to hear this thing fully unleashed.

I’m recoding a tree bing felled today so I’ll put that up later if this would help.

Dain, I've heard the mikes on Neal's podcast. But can you send me some stuff in full glorious 96 KHz 24 bits HD? After all neal's podcast is just an MP3. My email if you wana send it to me dirrectly is hamitcampos@.... I'd say just some out doors stuff but don't know how it's there in your part of Australia. Don't want ya to freese or something. lol

Thanks to the list member who recommended the Zoom H6 recorder, I’ve had mine for a month and to say I’m pleased with this recorder is indeed an understatement.
The Zoom H6 is the best field recorder I’ve ever owned for so many reasons which include usability.
The ability to record 6 tracks at once right out of the box is a plus as none of the recorders I have will do that.
The sound from the supplied microphone capsules has to be heard to be believed as it sounds so much better than most other supplied microphones for field recorders you’re likely to hear.
All of the functions I use are accessible without the help of the menu system though I do plan to write a menu shortcuts document for the recorder though its the usual thing of finding time.
