Zoom R8 8-Track Recorder/Interface/Control Surface



The Zoom R8 8-Track Recorder/Interface/Control Surface it’s not just an 8-track recorder – it’s also a control surface, USB interface, drum machine and sampler. There are lots of ways to do portable music, but the R8 is a real overachiever. As an example, it has dual XLR inputs with phantom power – which can be set to 48V, or you can dial back to 24V to save power. However, what really took us aback wasn’t the rich feature set but the transparent operating system – you can do a lot without even reading the manual. And if you do read the manual, you’ll find a seemingly endless array of useful convenience features. Zoom has been at the portable music game for a long time; it shows.’

Zoom compresses much of the functionality into a decidedly more compact footprint with the brand new R8. Giving you 2-track recording and 8-track playback, the R8 is a great solution for tracking your next album. Like its predecessor, the R8 is equipped with built-in effects and a 24-voice pad sampler, making the it a full-function audio production center. Plus, you can use the Zoom R8 8-Track Recorder/Interface/Control Surface as an audio interface, further bolstering the functionality of this sweet little recorder.
