Input System

The Zoom H8 unit itself comes with the X/Y H6 stereo microphone capsule that's equipped with two unidirectional microphones which without the need for any other microphones, allows you to record impressively clear and clean audio recordings - That's speech, rehearsals or pretty much anything you want to record, up to 136dB.

The Zoom Capsule System 2.0 that's used in the Zoon H8 allows you to use up to four audio channels which in turn enables a huge range of different and expressive recording options. Zoom offers a range of different capsules that will produce different tones and feel to your recordings. Three new separately available capsules include the XAH-8; This capsule is designed to capture the clearest and cleanest stereo recordings through its two condenser microphones which can be rotated from a tight X/Y pattern to a wide AB pattern for an enhanced stereo image.

The VRH-8 is ambisonic microphone capsule which uses four condenser microphones that produce immersive 360-degree audio. It's equipped with an accelerometer that helps you accurately align the capsule, and the built-in Ambisonic decoder will automatically control any conversions that might occur. Finally, there's the EXH-8 capsule which provides four additional XLR inputs (equally in a total ten), each of which has its own dedicated gain control and pad switch and allows you to use your own phantom-powered microphone (simply connect a power source to the EXH-8 capsule).

Intuitive Touchscreen System

The Zoom H8 has been designed for ease-of-use and simplicity, whilst capturing and producing the highest level of audio quality. The 2.4" colour LCD touchscreen is not only intuitive and easy to navigate, but there are also three app-driven modes that are optimised for recording podcasts, music and in-field work that are easily accessible. The podcast app makes it easy to record high-quality audio and gives you 13 pre-loaded sounds to enhance your discussion all at the touch of the dedicated sound pads, but if they're not enough, you can easily use your own sound effects and music via SD card slot.

The Music App, designed for those recording music in a studio environment. It has important functions that are needed to make your music recording and mixing easy and efficient.

In addition, you can add or remove EQ or compression, as well as there being an overdub feature that allows you to record over tracks.

And then there's the Field App. This is designed specifically for portable recording applications such as for location sound, meetings, live events etc. Using this mode, you able to utilise all the microphone inputs and your chosen capsule, whilst being given access to large meters for every track used whilst enables you to check for clipping on the bright LCD.
