Zoom R24 Digital Multitrack Recorder
The Total Music Production Solution. zoom takes its revolutionary R16 and turbocharges it with a sampler and drum machine, 8 additional recording tracks and 6 channels of phantom-power on the all-new R24. The R24 combines four production tools into one incredibly versatile device. In addition to 24-track playback and 8-track simultaneous recording using SD memory cards, the R24 is a digital multi-track recorder, an audio interface, a control surface and a pad sampler.
The R24’s new sampler function consists of 24 built-in voices that can be triggered using 8 pads and 3 bank keys to assign sounds to each track and create loops. Also, you can use the unit’s drum machine and its 400 rhythm patterns to create original backing beats, or simply output a metronome for tempo control. More than ever before, you have all the tools necessary to create studio-quality recordings anywhere.
For recording, the R24 supports up to 32GB SDHC cards for a maximum of 100 track hours. The flexibility of SD recording not only makes the R24 lighter and more portable, it also ensures increased reliability with no concern for a crashing hard drive. Back up your project on a USB memory stick. Or dedicate an SD card to each recording session.
Take your R24 into your studio and record additional tracks using its USB audio interface. Then when you’re ready to mix, use the R24’s control surface capabilities to manage each function of your favorite DAW software.
Incorporate any of the 100+ built-in studio effects to enhance your recording and use the pro-quality mastering effects to complete that studio sound. You can even connect two R24s via USB for synchronized operation and 16 tracks of simultaneous recording.
The R24 is perfect for capturing audio in a variety of settings. It supplies up to 6 channels with 48V/24V phantom power, so you can record with a variety of condenser microphones on vocals, pianos, guitars or drums. You can record up to 8 tracks simultaneously and playback up to 24 tracks in either 16-bit/44.1kHz or 24-bit/48kHz WAV format. So you have enough tracks and power to record everything from complete drum kits to live music performances of bands and orchestras. You can even produce audio and sound effects for film or video.
On its side panels, the R24 also features two built-in stereo condenser microphones for field recording or quick, convenient “sketch-pad” ideas and rehearsals. Use the 8 combination XLR-1/4-inch inputs along with one Hi-Z input for direct connection with a guitar or bass. When your masterwork is ready, you can use over 100 built-in studio effects to enhance your tracks and use the pro-quality mastering effects to complete that studio sound.
Time is money. And the R24 saves both with its post-production applications. Large amounts of audio can be transferred in no time with the system’s USB 2.0 interface, especially when the video project’s natural sound was recorded on the R24. When being used as a control surface, the R24 serves as a handy audio editing platform for a variety of video editing software packages, most notably Final Cut Pro. During the mastering process, you can sweeten your tracks by using the onboard mixer to create a mix on the fly and bounce it to a stereo master using the built-in mastering effects.
