Zoom H6-MS Optional Mid-Side Mic Capsule


Welcome to “Mid-Side” recording, a whole new level of precision in your ability to shape sound. The MS Capsule contains dual mic elements, a forward-facing, unidirectional mic (the “Mid”) and a side-facing, bi-directional mic (the “Side”). Together with the onboard MS decoder provided by the H5 and H6, they capture a fully mono-compatible stereo image that can actually be adjusted after recording, ideal for film, video, and television projects.

 

The MSH-6 mid-side stereo microphone capsule is compatible with the Zoom H5 and H6 Handy Recorders, U-44 Handy Audio Interface, Q8 Handy Video Recorder, F4 and F8 MultiTrack Field Recorders, as well as the ECM-3 extension cable for Zoom microphone capsules.

 

Inside the H6 MS capsule, the directional ("Mid") mic faces forwards while the bi-directional ("Side") mic is set perpendicular to it, like this:

 

 

The basic concept behind MS recording is that the Mid microphone picks up signals coming from the centre, while the Side microphone creates ambience and directionality by adding or subtracting information from either side. The Mid-Side technique works well whenever you need a variable amount of room sound. It can also be used for studio recording, and its convenience and flexibility make it a good option for rehearsal and live concert recording as well.
