General Your general opinion of this product. There are 10 features of the H4n that are missing on the H6. About 95% of the overdubbing functionality in the old H4n recorder is no longer present in the H6. There is no longer the ability to rename or delete recorded files or to assign any recorded track to any available track for playback. If you are a musician looking to use the H6 as a small home recording studio, and need overdubbing that allows you to start from any point within a recording, you will probably want to pass on buyinng the Zoom H6. I am trying to save others like me from making the same mistake and purchasing a product that can't do what you need it to do. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Easier to use than H4n, but still too may things buried in menus. The track volume dials are much easier than the rocker switch method on the H4n. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Add back in the ability to overdub from any point within a song, the ability to rename and delete recorded track files, the ability to assign any recorded track to any available track for playback, the ability to playback a .wav or .mp3 file with any name, the 48 effects that were in the H4n but are now MIA. Sound How is the tone? The sound quality is excellent. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I haven't had itlong enough to tell.
GREAT little recorder

General Your general opinion of this product. Having worked with recorders large and small, I find the Zoom H6 a necessity for field recording engineers. It is extremely sensitive, and yields a presence of sound on playback that no other small recorder has. I am sure that when I start using it as a multitracker, and mixing in SONAR X2 producer that the recordings will be above and beyond anything. So far I have used it in only X-Y stereo mode, but am highly pleased with the results. A word of warning: Do not put it near and extraneous noise sources as its sensitivity will cause you to get more noise than sound signal. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I think it is very well made, and if it stands up to the other Zoom products I have used over the years, it will be untouchable. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Easy on all counts. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The presence of sound in the recordings. Sound How is the tone? Tone is much better than anything else out there in the realm of small digital recorders. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Too new to rate on this one.
