Yep. Well what confused me is that the choices are stereo mix PC Mac which pulls from the USB port like you say. PC Mac battery which pulls the H6's batteries then the exact IPad choice though lots of people don't use it is IPad battery. So I assumed it would use the 4 batteries in the zoom. But which choice do you use? I've heard people go into multy track mode and use PC Mac. Which is interesting cause if they get away with that it must mean IPad os must be cymilar enough to Mac OS.

Yes you do have a choice there to use its own batteries if you like so the 
choice is yours.

Ah interesting. I was under the impression that when you chose the battery 
choice it would use it's 4 Double a ones. I just have to get to best buy to get 
that cable. so I can use it to make more youtube vids.
I've not used my channals so much for this reason exactly. But now I could make 
them in stereo with the H6 I could make more vids.

That’s exactly right.
The Zoom H6 uses its USB socket as a power source when used as a Sound Device 
from a computer, iPad etc.

Wait how does it draw the IPad battery? The IPad choice is Stereo Mix IPad

No I’ve not tried the Zoom H6 with an iPhone.
For those who want to give it a go you’ll need the Apple Camera Kit for 
You will also need to ensure that the battery of your iPad is near to fully 
charged before you start as the Zoom H6 by default draws current from your iPad 
though you can change this so that the recorder uses its own battery power.
Voiceover doesn’t interfere with recordings made from the Zoom H6 Interface and 
neither it should as its a completely different audio path.

Well there's always the H5. The H6's little sister. How much smaller it is I'm 
not too sure. On that note though. Have you tried the H6 just for grins and 
giggles with an IPhone? I know it works with IPad. But I don't have an IPad. 
How does it take to the fact of Voice Over being on?

Since we have a good Christmas discussion going regarding Zoom recorders and 
accessories I thought I’d throw this one into the hat to see if anyone could 
provide further information or at least comment.
I use my Zoom H6 as an audio interface with my iPad Pro and it works incredibly 
I have no complaints but I do wish there was another device out there which was 
a bit smaller and would allow me to do line-in recordings as the Zoom H6 does 
if I have the standard X/Y capsule fitted which has a line-in facility.
I’ve looked up audio interfaces for IOS using Google and all I seem to come up 
with are microphones or interfaces that allow one to use their favourite XLR 
microphones which isn’t what I’m after.
