General Your general opinion of this product. I bought this unit to enter into the world of digital recording. Luckily it records all by itself without the DAW software. The learning curve for interfacing the R16 and using the DAW is a little steep for me. For now I can use it stand alone. I like that. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Seems very light weight. Good for portability, not so good if it gets pulled off the desk by an inserted cable. Have to keep eyes on that! Combo input jacks seem light weight, I guess time will tell. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? As a stand alone recorder it was easy to start multi tracking immediately. I'm going to deal with the learning curve on the R16, then deal with the DAW. The manual is helpful for the recorder, not so much for interfacing with the DAW. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? 8 track simultaneous recording. I would make the thing heavier (metal case). Sound How is the tone? Recording sounds good. Amp models for guitar are ok for scratch tracks, I'll record my amp with a mic thank you very much! Reliability How has it stood up over time? Remains to be seen.
Amazing!!

How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Still learning the menus, but all in all it's a snap to get up and recording. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Being able to record and mix 8 tracks at a time is awesome! Sound How is the tone? Clean Reliability How has it stood up over time?

General Your general opinion of this product. I've had it approx. 28 days and I don't understand it enough to make a fair honest accessment .i'm from the Jurassic period (analog age) and this is a complete 360. lot of tech stuff I have no clue . the operational manual is not much help at this time .I actually learn more from you tube . the more I work with the recorder the better I get . Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? its very light . plastic shell . to early to comment on how dependable it is . Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? just saying for me . its very difficult at this time . I will get better on it . I didn't learn to play guitar overnight and this is my attitude on the Zoom 16. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? this recorder does so many things . I couldn't begin to pick a best feature with what little knowledge I have of digital recording . Sound How is the tone? I've recorded two songs only using 6 tracks and the sound was good. ( instrumentals ) Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've had it 28 days . and its still working .
