Zoom R16 – Coming Soon!January 26, 2009
The new Zoom R16 Multitrack Recorder Embraces Computer Recording Revolution. It’s one incredibly versatile device…
While some multitrack recorder die hards simply refuse to connect any instrument they own to any of these newfangled “computers” that everyone talks about, the Zoom R16 looks to remedy this.
This new multitrack can handle up to eight simultaneous tracks, and it’s loaded with features that take computer connectivity to a new extreme.
For one, if you don’t want to record to SD, as is possible with this unit, just hook it up and use it as an interface. It also acts as a control surface once you’ve got your tracks tracked and transferred.
