Audiotimecode into Zoom H6 via XLR Input

11.69K viewsHardware

I have successfully been able to use the Zoom H6 to synch timecode using the line in on the XY module mic – very similar to the H4n recommended setup in the white paper.

But this means of course, that I can’t use the XY mic or the Shotgun capsule mics.

So is it possible to plug in the Tentacle synch into one of the XLR/TRS inputs? I get that it would be be an unbalanced output going into a balanced output but would this work with an adapter?

I tried searching the forum but couldn’t find any other responses so thought I’d post.

Thanks in advance.

Yes this will work. You don’t need an adapter. Connect pin 3 to pin 1 on the male XLR and don’t use phantom power. You can use mic level or line level if you use the TRS.
