Zoom H6 thanks for the recommendation


Dane Trethowan <grtdane@...>
 

Hi!
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.

Please share more about it's accessibility.

Neal Ewers did a whole podcast on it. just look for ravenswood podcast and eventually you'll find the page of all the podcasts. It's there on the page. I'm thinking real hard on 1 my self as I think I'm a little spoiled by using blindness devices as people call them for so long. Stuff like the victors plextalks and what not.

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.

Hi Dane.

Welcome to the Zoom club.

I've had mine for about 2 years and love it.

I'm getting a bit of a reputation in my community for being available and recording local bands, chures, concerts and solo singers, etc at really high quality.

Thus far I've only used the plug in X Y and Right Angle plug ins, so have not dabbled on the rest of the available 4 tracks.

I was thinking of buying a couple of Sure microphones with stands, but around £150, it's a bit outwith my means and the plug in mics are perfect anyway.

Finally, have you listened to Mr. Neil Ewars podcast on this device. If not I can provide it, via Sendspace.

Finally, if you get around to the menus structure document, I'd love it as sighted assistance is not always available.

Finally, finally and final finally, Did you know that there is also big brothers to the Zoom.

Not sure but Zoom 8, 10 and 12 ring a bell but about £800 a pop!

Please let me know if I can be of any help to you, but must say that I'm a very amateur recordingist.

Andy.

Thanks for that and anyone who recorded with a Zoom H6 would more than enjoy it I reckon.
I heard Neal’s review on the product, its in the Blind Cool Tech archive - Blind Fools Wreck if you prefer - which I have on my system.
I’ve read about the Zoom R8 - 8 track recorder - which sounds utterly amazing but offers more than I’m ever likely to use but a recorder without a doubt for the audio professional who wishes to take things to the next level.
Zoom has quite a name for its recorders now and wipes the floor with the so called “Big Boys” of the industry such as Tascam, Roland and so on.
Many reports and reviews I’ve read lately point to shortcomings in those recorders offered by Tascam, Roland etc.
It would appear that those company’s are sacrificing good quality product in the name of being the cheapest out there thus the performance and build quality suffers in the final product whereas Zoom have come up through the ranks so to speak and learnt from customer feedback and their own mistakes.
I started life with a Zoom H1 as list members will probably remember as I’ve written about it often enough and I still hold to the view that for $99 - that’s what I paid for the Zoom H1 8 years ago -its an incredible bargain of a recorder and just so easy to use.
Like everything else the Zoom H1 has its pros and cons but still an incredible and well well regarded recorder if you’re on a bit of a tight budget.
I’ll be getting some more capsules for the Zoom H6 including the shotgun mic.

Ah the F4 and F8 are epic! I've heard them. On youtube videos. The f4 is kinda like an H6 but quite a bit bigger I'd emagin as it can write to 2 SD cards. The F8 is something more like the Sound Devices 788-T or their new Mix Pre 10. Where you can hook 8 mikes all though i think it's 6 built in and the full 8 with the snapp off capsel with 2 XLR plugs. Note if you get that capsel it for what ever reason can't spit phantum power. So if you wana use as Audio-Technica calls them, true condencers you need external phantum. Man if I got 1 I'd try my AT-8022 with phantum right away. By the way since Olympus was brought up at 1 time a bit ago when I listen to Neal's demos of the H6 with the NT1-A I find they sound similar. It's flavor that is a bit different. The H6 sounds lots brighter. Not as bright as the H5 but the H5 is lak luster in bass. I do like the H5 sound too and it's aparently the 1 people grab along with their purchase of the 8022 stereo mike I have. I just wander if someone as spoiled as I could deal with these. As there's no music, which is solved by wearing earbuds there's no speach or beeps which is the more confusing thing. I find that when I try to use things without speach or sounds it's hit and miss. I get it sometimes and meh not others.

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 then maybe they for what ever silly reason applyed that limit I heard on the F recorders. Ya know the new big pro ones. Well newer then the H6 anyways. But now I think about it it was on a vid for either the F4 which is just a biger H6 that can record to 2 SD cards or the f8 which can take 8 mikes. I forget which. I guess the only way to find out is to try. If you could get all 6 channals in 96 KHZ 24 bits than that's epic. That would be way too epic.

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.

I’ve had no reason to perform a full multi track recording as yet so I’m only going on what I read in the manual.
I can’t speak for the other recorders you mentioned though I will be reading the manual for the F8 in the coming days as that recorder looks like a true Pro beast.

Ah then maybe they for what ever silly reason applyed that limit I heard on the F recorders. Ya know the new big pro ones. Well newer then the H6 anyways. But now I think about it it was on a vid for either the F4 which is just a biger H6 that can record to 2 SD cards or the f8 which can take 8 mikes. I forget which. I guess the only way to find out is to try. If you could get all 6 channals in 96 KHZ 24 bits than that's epic. That would be way too epic.

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.

Hell to the yeah. I mean I've heard a car recorded with the F4 the F8's little brother, but that was way too epic! So the F8 is obviously epic.

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.

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.
