ZOOM Debuts Stereo Mid-Side Shotgun Mic Capsule
The new SSH-6 opens up new sonic opportunities
January 22, 2015 — ZOOM Corporation continues its revolution in stereo microphones with the release of the SSH-6 mid-side shotgun mic capsule.
The latest in a line of interchangeable input capsules for Zoom's acclaimed H5, H6, and Q8 Handy Recorders, the SSH-6 features two mic elements in a mid-side configuration. Mid-Side recording enables the width of the stereo image to be adjusted during recording or in postproduction, while maintaining full mono compatibility.
The SSH-6 is ideal for location recording of film, video, and television projects. It allows videographers and content creators to capture dialogue or narration with the center microphone, and then mix in the desired amount of environmental sound captured by the side microphone afterwards. In situations where the ambient sound is too intrusive, the side mic level can be reduced to make spoken lines easier to hear. A professional grade hairy windscreen is included with the SSH-6 for the effective reduction of wind noise.
