Product Description

Capturing high-resolution audio is easy with the Portacapture X6. The intuitive app-like operation on its large color touchscreen makes it easy to record or sweeten up your audio in post-processing. Record using the two built-in microphones or plug in your own mics to its two XLR inputs. The recording quality on the Portacapture X6 will be your secret advantage. Its 96-kHz/32-bit floating-point recording technology means that you can capture audio softer or louder than ideal, assuring that you will never miss that moment.

Six different recording apps to choose from:

  • MANUAL - This is the main app for multi-track recording of up to six audio sources and a stereo mix (2-mix).
  • VOICE - This recording app is ideal for capturing interviews, dictation and meetings.
  • PODCAST - Use this for podcast creation with up to four people.
  • MUSIC - Choose this app for capturing instrumental and vocal performances.
  • FIELD - Ideal for recording nature sounds outdoors.
  • ASMR - The screen visual effect changes in response to the input sound.

App-like operation

Quickly access your settings and adjustments on the Portacapture X6’s large (2.4-inch) colour touchscreen. With the easy-to-navigate interface and helpful tools, you are just a few taps from the perfect setting for your needs. Use the Launcher to select from podcast, music, interviews, field recording and real 6-track recording. Start fast, start right and get exactly what you need.

Audio for video production

When shooting a video, you want to be able to focus on your video production and not worry about your audio. The Portacapture X6 was built with video production in mind. The workflow, presets and user settings save you countless steps. The X6 has your back with its 96 kHz/32-bit float recording technology. Not only does this mean you will have the highest quality audio, but you will have a dynamic range that allows you to overcome those less-than-ideal realities that can often occur on a shoot.

The X6 even gives you a timecode sync option (coming soon in a future firmware update) via Bluetooth (with optional AK-BT1) allowing you to align your audio with your video, even when you have no audio on your camera. Upgrade your audio and reduce your worries with your own Portacapture X6.

Record your way

The Portacapture X6 is ready to record with a few quick taps. The internal high-quality stereo microphones can instantly be rotated from A-B to a true X-Y mic pattern to allow for dialogue or spatial music recording. Have your own mics? Use those thanks to the two included XLR inputs which can also handle line level sources.

The mic preamplifiers are Tascam HDDA (High Definition Discrete Architecture) – providing ultra-low noise and clean transparent audio based on more than 50 years of Tascam know-how.

Record six tracks (four individual track plus stereo mix) simultaneously and even use the X6 as your 6-in/2-out USB audio interface to connect to your computer.
