A portable studio ready for any recording scenario.

The Zoom H6 Pro Handheld Recorder gives you a mobile recording solution for capturing high-quality audio anywhere. With four XLR/TRS inputs and two additional inputs via interchangeable capsules, the H6 Pro provides up to six channels of recording. Onboard processing including compression, limiting and highpass filtering lets you polish your tracks as you go. You can also use the H6 Pro as a USB interface to record all six inputs on your Mac, PC or iPad with the EXH-6 capsule.

Six Discrete Tracks and Swappable Capsules for Versatile Recording
The H6 Pro comes ready to record in any situation with four XLR/TRS inputs and an included XYH-6 X/Y mic capsule. For even more inputs, optional capsules provide two additional channels. With up to six tracks, you have enough inputs for recording interviews, podcasts, live music and more. The interchangeable capsules give you flexibility to capture the perfect sound for any application.

Built-in Processing for Professional-Sounding Tracks
Onboard compression, limiting and highpass filtering allow you to polish your recordings as you capture audio. Standard compression and limiting settings prevent overloading inputs while advanced modes are tailored for vocals and drums. Additional limiting options are ideal for the high SPL of live shows or the spikes of small-room recording. A highpass filter reduces wind noise and plosives. With these tools, you can achieve professional results even before loading tracks into your editing software.

Doubles as a USB Audio Interface for Recording on Your Computer
In addition to a standalone recorder, the H6 Pro functions as a USB interface to record its inputs on your Mac, PC or iPad using the EXH-6 capsule. All onboard processing is available when used as an interface and direct monitoring allows for latency-free recording. A Loop Back mode even lets you mix and record a stereo feed over USB with the H6 Pro's inputs.

Operates for Extended Periods on Battery or USB Power
The H6 Pro gives you recording freedom with power options for any situation. Four AA batteries allow up to 20 hours of operation while USB bus power provides an unlimited power source. For the longest battery life, the AD-17 AC adapter kit powers the H6 Pro indefinitely. With these power choices, you'll never miss a recording opportunity due to drained batteries.
