I know gear topics can tend to get out of hand pretty quickly, but I am in need of a portable recorder, and I am not really aware what is on the market. I am interested in something that I could use different microphones with, and the Zoom H6 has peaked my interest due to the cost. Has anyone had any experience with zoom’s shotgun mic?
I didn’t use Zoom recorder but i had deal with Tascam DR 44 (similar to Zoom H4n) and then upgrade to Tascam DR100 mk3 (~400$) and this was really significant upgrade! As i know Zoom H6 in similar price range but has slightly “hissy” mic pres. If you pick Zoom for it’s modular construction then ok, it’s good. But if you seek for better pres and A/D converters then i’ll recomend you to look at Tascam.
Hope this help =)
