Full DescriptionView Full Description
Whether you're recording 8 tracks simultaneously, using the R16's eight input channels and two output channels as an audio interface or using it as a controller for transport and mixing operations, it's all possible with the Zoom R16.
Record 8 tracks simultaneously and easily with 16-track playback
Capture audio in any setting, from live music performance, drums with multiple mics to music rehearsals and songwriting, even audio for film and video. You can playback up to 16 tracks using its 16/24-bit linear WAV format and 44.1kHz sampling rate.
Audio interface with 8-in/2-out capability
The R16 functions as an audio interface enabling direct input of sound to a computer. It features support for high quality 24-bit/96kHz encoding, it has eight input channels and two output channels which can be used simultaneously.
If you use the sampling rate of 44.1kHz, the internal DSP effects of the R16 are also usable on your computer tracks. Adjust the mixing balance between the DAW playback sound and the direct sound for monitoring with the dedicated control.
Control surface for all major DAW functions
Use the R16 to control Transport and mixing operations of the DAW software. Get greater control and a better feel for mixing. In Mackie Control emulation mode, major DAW applications such as Cubase, Logic, and Sonar are supported.
Sync two R16s for 16 tracks of simultaneous recording
The R16 is the first recorder that incorporates the ability to generate a synchronization signal based on USB data transfer timing. By connecting two R16 units via USB, you can designate one to function as a USB host and the other as a USB slave, allowing synchronised transport operation. This lets you record on up to 16 tracks simultaneously to competently handle a live performance.
