Zoom R16 Review

 

DAW systems are good but you don't always have a computer by when you feel the rush to record music. Mini studios were created for that purpose: they are practical solutions but not very comprehensive nor ergonomic. That's why Zoom launched the R16, an...

Zoom R16 Multitrack SD Recorder Controller and Interface

 

This device is AMAZING. To the guy who said "it only has 16 tracks" or whatever... try the r24. It has 16 inputs, 16 simultaneous recording, 24 playback. Personally the r16 is overkill for my personal needs. I probably could've settled for the r8, and...

You cannot beat the amount of functionality at this price. Extremely functional stand alone recorder. Very sensitive stereo microphones. 44khz recording standalone. 92khz while hooked up as an audio interface. Just the fact that I have a control...

Only records at 44khz in stand alone mode. NOT REALLY A CON. If you want professional studio quality sound - your time and effort would be well spent in practicing your routine until you have mastered it and investing in renting a studio. if you need...

Easy, Sounds Good, Amazingly Light

 

Price wise and sound wise, this is a no brainer. No whirring hard drive, light weight, relative ease of menus. Great unit for quick, at home or on site recording.

On a 1 to 10 scale: off the meter

 

I\'m a Zoombie! After having it for ten days, I did my first in field recording 3 hours ago, and am listening to the preliminary mix now. Recorded a traditional jazz band in a New Orleans church First Impressions: Ease of use: Superb. Carried it there...

User review Zoom R16 by Kierkes on Audiofanzine
