This is an original song written and performed by my son Garrison Matlock with accompanying vocals by my daughter Paizley Matlock. We're testing out some applications for recording with the Zoom H6 beyond podcasting this week. This was captured with the XY microphone head and onboard preamps. It's part of my kit for mobile podcasting and I'm pretty impressed. The song, though... that's epic. I'm the recording and mix engineer, but the H6 did the heavy lifting. For a song written, recorded and mixed the same day, I think they did well. Leave me a comment at WYWU.org. Keep up with all of us together as we add new content at inhabitable.us.
