High-quality audio recording was once the exclusive domain of professional studios and other settings tricked out with top-notch equipment. But now, thanks to advances in technology and lower pricing, a professional-level audio recording has moved within reach of practically anyone.
So if you’ve ever wanted to reach a broader audience as a musician, podcaster, independent filmmaker, youtube content creator or journalist there’s no time like the present. These days, the difference in quality produced by professional set-ups—with layers of soundproofing and pricey microphones—don’t sound much different from recordings made on a relatively smaller budget using some of the top notch gear from Zoom microphones! Zoom has, in fact, become an industry standard for a lot of content curators around the world.
Podcasting doesn’t always have to be from your basement or closet! Imagine how much more content you could produce if you could do it from anywhere! With its small build, the H1 and H2n are the perfect out-of-the-box unit for daily recording and small projects. If you are looking to record live podcast sessions, events, office meetings, or family occasions these recorders are perfect for you.

There is an incredible range of cameras that record video today. DSLRs, point-n-shoots, and even our cell phones all shoot pretty nice HD video. But they all share one problem: the sound is really poor. A cheap, built-in microphone simply can't record professional audio. Even if your camera has an XLR input and you're using a high-quality mic, the sound files are likely compressed.
Zoom H4n -The Swiss Army Knife of production - Originally designed for musicians, the Zoom H4n has become especially popular with Field recorders, On location shooters, and filmmakers over other portable recorders because it has direct XLR mic input connectors with phantom power, and because it can record as many as four channels at once from both the built-in mics as well as from two external sources. No wonder the most widely used audio recorder by DSLR filmmakers is, without a doubt, the Zoom H4n.
Use case : Field recording , On location shoot, Filmmaking etc. H4n can not only can serve as an external recorder for DSLR video work, it can also act as an audio interface for your computer. You can record directly into the timeline of Final Cut Pro, or into any video or audio production software that supports external interfaces.
Zoom H6- The Field and studio recording workhorse - One of the things that make the Zoom H6 Handy Recorder such a powerful device is it's extensive I/O, which puts its functionality comfortably on par with the high-end dedicated recorders used by film and television professionals. On the body of the H6 alone, you'll find four combo jacks, each with its own volume dial and switchable -20dB pad. These inputs let you connect anything from phantom-powered condenser microphones to extremely hot line-level sources. Cooler still is the H6's modular expansion port, which lets you connect microphones such as the included XY or Mid-side capsules.
Use Case : Infinite possibilities of mobile recording applications. Document the experience. Use the X/Y capsule to capture the overall sound in stereo, then use the other four inputs for a direct feed from the mixing board, or for external spot mics to pick up specific instruments and the room sound. With the H6, you can relive that great performance night after night.
Now you can get the best out of your laptop at every gig. The Zoom UAC-2 is portable, bus-powered (no AC connection required), and built rugged for the road, plus its advanced converters and support for USB 3.0 SuperSpeed ensures superior audio wherever your music takes you. Broadcast your creativity, enhance your gaming experience, and share your performance with the world.
