Powerful and portable, the Portacapture X6 from TASCAM is the streamlined version of the popular X8, redesigned and scaled back for videographers, podcasters, and content creators working on smaller productions. The compact size of the X6 makes it easy to position for numerous recording applications, while still retaining the ability to record up to six simultaneous tracks at 96 kHz / 32-bit floating point.


The stereo condenser microphone pair can be adjusted for A/B or X/Y configurations, depending on the desired stereo field width, and X6 sports plenty of connectivity, including two XLR input jacks with 24 or 48V phantom power, one 3.5mm stereo aux input with plug-in power, a stereo 3.5mm line output, and a USB-C port with 6x2 audio interface capability, just to name a few. The color touchscreen makes it easy to operate the X6 like an app, with an intuitive and colorful interface, and the recorder can be mounted on cameras and stands via its 1/4" slot for extra versatility. With up to 22 hours max battery life and the ability to take up to 512 GB microSDXC cards, the X6 will keep you creating for as long as your imagination allows, anywhere you want.
