MIC WARS | Zoom H6 X/Y mic vs. M/S mic

MIC WARS | Zoom H6 X/Y mic vs. M/S mic

MIC WARS! The Zoom H6 XY microphone vs. the Zoom H6 MS microphone. 

The Zoom H6 is a self-contained recorder, but you can also use it as a USB microphone and an audio interface. The XY stereo condenser mic capsule and the Mid-Side condenser mic capsule will be compared in this video. 

We will test these microphones on voice for applications such as podcasts, voice-over, YouTube videos, etc… 

You will hear several samples from different distances. There are raw samples and processed samples. The processed samples use iZotope Nectar 2. 

The ZOOM H6 X/Y microphone capsule uses two angled unidirectional mics which are sensitive to signals coming from the front but less to signals coming from the sides and rear

The ZOOM H6 M/S mic capsule captures a fully mono-compatible stereo image that can be adjusted after recording – ideal for film, video, and television projects
