STUDIO-QUALITY RECORDING WHEREVER YOU GO THE ZOOM R16 Recorder : Interface : Controller The Zoom R16 instantly transforms any environment into a recording studio. Not only does it offer 16 tracks for recording, it can also be used as a DAW control surface and audio interface, allowing you to craft great-sounding music both at home and wherever your travels take you. The R16 has it all: built-in stereo condenser microphones, 8 mic/line/instrument inputs for connecting external gear, a whopping 135 onboard DSP effects—even a chromatic tuner. Multitrack recording has never been easier The R16 provides sixteen tracks for recording and playback (up to eight tracks can be recorded simultaneously) in full fidelity WAV format, making it ideal for both professional production and for use as a musical sketchpad. Battery operation allows for field recording and enables you to capture your musical ideas quickly. You can connect external microphones or line-level sources directly to the R16, or use the built-in stereo mic pair for minimal setup. You can also plug instruments such as electric guitar or bass right into the R16. When your multitrack recording is complete, you can use the R16's internal mixer, complete with real faders, equalization, panning, and 135 built-in DSP effects—including amp models and mastering effects like multi-band compression—to create a stereo mix with studio-quality sound. Control your DAW If you use DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) software, you probably love mixing in the box but hate mixing with a mouse. The R16 provides the perfect solution. Its Mackie Control™ emulation enables the R16 to act as a full-featured control surface for popular DAWs such as Cubase, Logic, Ableton Live, and Sonar, adding physical faders and transport/status buttons that streamline the process of creating the perfect mix. In addition, five assignable function keys allow you to set marker points and initiate advanced editing operations.
