    Stephen, I enjoyed your Zoom L-12 tutorial. I watched your first one last year and also enjoyed it. Although I do not intend on buying the L-12, Podcasting and recording gear is always fun to learn more about. Now for the big question… when are you planning to shell out the $1000 to buy the Zoom L-20, just so I can enjoy another one of your reviews?
    Thanks for another Better Podcasting/GonnaGeek Gear review, Johnny Pennington

    Hi,

    Can you connect your H6 to the L12 “digitally” via USB?

    I’d like to route the H6 XY capsule into a stereo channel in the L12. Is that possible?

    Thanks!

    –Rodrigo.
