Apart from recording up to 6 channels of audio to an SD card, you can also use the X6 as an audio interface and still capture with its built-in mics. These can also shift easily between XY and AB configurations making them even more versatile.

Using the Tascam Portacapture X6

The touchscreen interface allows you to quickly navigate between the six recording modes including, manual, voice, podcast, music, field, and ASMR. Once selected, each of these presets opens up a set of features best suited for its respective application.

In addition, the screen interface also lets you access administrative features such as the file browser, SD card manager, and general settings tab.

As an audio interface, the X6 is powered via USB or the optional PS-P520U power supply. However, when you go mobile you can get over 8 hours of recording time from the 4 x AA batteries.
