Yes, you can record directly into the H6 on an SD drive that will produce quality MP3s and single or multi-track WAV files. The H6 can also be plugged into your computer via USB to serve as the computer's Audio Interface.
INCIDENTALLY, there are a multitude of recording options considering that it sends audio data via USB. One of the options including Apple iOS Devices! Yes, you can plug a camera connection kit into your iOS Device and begin recording high quality audio into a Digital Audio Workstation right in the palm of your hand!
First, I plugged in my USB CAMERA CONNECTION KIT so that the open ended side was USB and not SD. Please be sure that you purchase a USB adapter instead of an SD adapter.
I turned on the iPAD 2 and left the AURIA app CLOSED. Next, I plugged the H6 into the USB adapter, using H6's included USB cable, and turned the H6 on. The H6 will then prompt whether or not it will be used as an interface for PC or MAC using its own batter power or using the computer's batter power. Choose the option stating it will be using ITS OWN BATTER POWER using the wheel on the right side of the H6.
Next, I opened the AURIA application and the H6 was instantly recognized as an audio interface! One of AURIA's many features is AURIA's INPUT MATRIX and that you can record on MULTIPLE TRACKS, SIMULTANEOUSLY.
AURIA not only recognized that the H6 was plugged in, acting as my Audio Interface, but it ALSO separated the H6's 6 inputs to their respective audio tracks! THIS, my friends, is A BIG DEAL.
Next, I made sure my mics were all functioning properly and immediately began recording LIVE DRUMS using simply a backpack's worth of devices.
Some things to consider about my experiment are: -The iPAD was running on iOS 7 at the time. -AURIA will give you visual memory status bar. Running the application with the tracks simultaneously will eat up an iPAD 2's memory for the time being, meaning you cannot run more than just AURIA without effecting the quality of sound and performance. -Seeing as the iPAD has been updated since then, iPAD3+s should get the job done, no problem.
I would imagine that every musician that could benefit from home recordings should invest in and tweak this system.
p.s. I've also done some experimenting using a high powered mixer running ProTools to send a house mix to the ZOOM H6. It worked so well, it was frightening.
