The Zoom R16 Recorder is a multi-track digital recorder, with 8 channels of simultaneous input and up to 16 channels of simultaneous output. It records to SD card, and it can even run on battery power, making it one of the most portable music production studios available. It has a built-in stereo condenser mic so you can record anything anywhere. Enough scope to multi-track record an entire drum set, and enough tracks to make a full band studio recording (including overdubs) without even touching a computer.
It also functions as an audio-interface when used with computers, and as a control surface, making it equally useful as a studio production tool and a digital recorder for remote locations. Over a hundred built-in effects are provided to enable serious mixing potential, and pro mastering tools ensure you can make a polished mix every time. If you connect two Zoom R16s to a computer you can record 16 channels simultaneously too. It is a complete studio in a compact box. Record live gigs, rehearsals, studio tracks and more with this amazing piece of kit. Every band should have one.
Included with the Zoom R16 Recorder is a 1GB SD Card that will get you up and running from the very start.
