Product Description

The revolutionary R16 from Zoom is now reborn as the R24 with added features including a built-in sampler, drum machine, 8 additional recording tracks and 6 channels of phantom-power. Zoom's 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 all on one versatile piece of equipment.

The Zoom R24 controller includes operation manual, USB cable, AC adapter (Zoom AD-14) and Steinberg Cubase LE software.

As a Standalone Recorder
The R24 is perfect for capturing audio in a variety of settings. It supplies up to 6 channels with 48V/24V phantom power. 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. Syncronize two R24s via USB for 16 simultaneous recording tracks.

Zoom R24 Multi-track Recording Features
  • Over 100 studio-quality effects including guitar amp models and mastering effects
  • Records on up to 32GB SDHC cards for maximum recording time
  • 8 balanced XLR-1/4-inch combination inputs
  • Records in WAV 48kHz/44.1kHz at 16-bit or 24-bit
  • Easily viewable 4-segment LED meter bridge
  • 6-channel simultaneous 48V phantom power supply capability
  • Over 4 hours of operation using 6 AA alkaline batteries (AC adaptor included)
  • Sync two R24s via USB for 16 tracks of simultaneous recording
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.

As an Interface
The R24 is more than a multi-track recorder. It's also a powerful workstation when using USB power for studio operation. Connect the R24 to your laptop or desktop computer via USB, launch your favorite DAW or use the included Cubase LE 5, and start laying down your production tracks. With simultaneous 8-in/2-out capability, you can record 16-bit/44.1kHz audio or capture high-definition 24-bit/96kHz audio via 2-in/2-out configuration. If you use the sampling rate of 44.1kHz, the internal DSP effects of the R24 are also usable on your computer tracks. Also, a dedicated control lets you adjust the mixing balance between the DAW playback sound and the direct sound for monitoring.

Zoom R24 Audio Interface Features
  • High-definition 24-bit/96kHz recording capability
  • 8 input, 2 output (8 x 2) via USB
As a Controller
Computers bring incredible control and power to the recording process, but they're not very intuitive when it comes to mixing, which makes your music come alive. So, when you’re ready to mix, the R24 is right there with you. Through a simple USB connection, you can control the transport and mixing functions of major DAW applications such as Cubase, Logic, and Sonar from the R24. No more mixing with a mouse! The R24’s innate mixing console feel and LED meter bridge makes mixing your tracks a pleasure.

Zoom R24 Control Surface Features
  • Full mixing and transport controls for Cubase, Logic, Sonar and more!
  • USB Control Surface uses Mackie Control emulation
As a Sampler
In addition to assigning sounds to each track to create loops, the R24’s sampler allows you to play the pads in real-time and creates performance data for a complete song by combining loops. By simply lining up drum loops from the included USB memory stick, anyone can easily create pro-quality backing parts and basic tracks. Recording on another track while playing loops is also possible, seamlessly blending the recorder and sampler functions. The rhythm feature can produce backing drum tracks in both real-time and step input, while the metronome settings support the output of a click track to headphones, perhaps to a drummer in a live situation, while the signals from the output jacks are sent to a mixer.

Zoom R24 Sampling Features
  • Pad sampler with 24 voices (8 pads x 3 banks)
  • Loop-based audio sequencer for music creation
The R24 offer 400 drum machine patterns that will inspire your musical creativity. The focus of the R24’s rhythm library is rock, but also includes jazz, funk, country, bossa nova and hip-hop beats. 

As a Field Recorder
Great for sound effects recording or anyone looking for multiple audio feeds in a remote environment, the R24 is a lightweight, portable solution that supplies phantom power to 6 channels, supporting your use of condenser mics on location video shoots. For media professionals and filmmakers, the R24 makes it easy to record audio with booms, handheld mics or up to 8 lavalieres with wireless setups. In addition, the R24 includes a stereo headphone output for continuous monitoring, while the system’s LED meter bridge provides an easy way to ensure your levels are appropriately set for any given source.

Zoom R24 Field Recording Features
  • Equipped with a set of built-in high-sensitivity stereo condenser mics
  • Capture sound effects, speeches and dialog with excellent clarity
  • Connect two R24s via USB for 16 tracks of simultaneous recording
  • Record Scratch tracks and overdub voiceovers in post-production
  • Onboard phantom power with high-quality mic preamps and vocal effects
  • Operates on battery power for 4 hours with 6 standard AA batteries
For Post-Production
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. 

Zoom provides you with everything you need to create professional music recordings from any location by merging a multi-track recorder, audio interface, controller surface and a sampler into the incredible R24.

What is your opinion of this product?
Best and most practical standalone recorder I've ever used. I destroyed Pro tools now i use this just like an ol skool reel2reel. Very clean, quick to learn easy for everyone to use. Best of all its battery powered for when power goes out or recording in the Park (6hrs). Has cool drums built in. Or use it to control any DAW of choice. USB easy to transfer songs from computer to computer. best recorder under $3,000 Quick patch or use drums and built in mics for a really nice sound. Has FX and can control plugins and other outboard gear Small and compact. Touring, small clubs, studio. Fits in my gig bag. Idiot proof!

great
What is your opinion of this product?
This thing is easy to operate.great recordings..feature that sold me was recording 8 tracks at the same time,,the whole band. the effects input on my vocals were GREAT. Also I used it for a mixer for live band jobs if I didnt need the bigger board. Hint get a 16,or 32 gb sd card. The 2gb sd card will only give you 50 minutes with all 8 channels at once and you wont be able to mix down on the r-24,, you'll have to load into a computer to finish mixdown,Ill use the mixcraft 7 program to polish it off.. Over all VERY SATISFIED with this..If interested you can get an in depth step by step demo on how to use this unit on u-tube from a guy called topdassle,,otherwise if you don't run out of room on sd-card you can then mix down on r-24

Excellent multitrack recorder.
What is your opinion of this product?
This is the 1st multi-track recorder I ever purchased.It was between the TASCAM 32D or the Zoom R24. I chose the Zoom because it is much more versatile and easier to use than the TASCAM 32D. It also has more functions than the TASCAM. I am just studying the manual, as ALL multi-track equipment, you should read manual and understand functions and paths to get the full value out of equipment. THUMBS UP!

Wowza!
What is your opinion of this product?
Hubby is the singing pro but I've got very comfortable as the assistant with this setup. Haven't mastered all the bells and whistles yet but both learning and progressing daily. It's the first place we head to in the mornings! It is amazingly powerful with professional output. Awesome buy.

Great sound quality/portability
What is your opinion of this product?
I own a Zoom Q4, very impressed with the quality. Was looking at the R16 multi-track, but found a "dent & scratch" R24 for the same price. Was told of the 45 day satisfaction guarantee, so I took a chance. I opened the shipping box, & the factory box the unit was packed in was mangled & wrapped like a mummy w/box tape (uh-oh). Cut open the box, & the unit was in pristine condition (whew). The dent & scratch must have been the box itself. Have used it about a month, tried out most of the features, & it works great so far. A friend bought another brand, and never used it because it was so complicated. I borrowed it, and he was right. Layers of menus to navigate, & simple tasks become complex very quickly. Too hard to use and no fun!! The R24 is a breeze in comparison! As simple as you want (simple is good), and even complex functions are not too difficult. Good sound quality, portability (bought a case for it). Multi-track in the field without tearing down & moving my whole studio!

Significant capabilities with a modest investment
What is your opinion of this product?
Having used an H4n I am familiar with Zoom's intuitive operation and the R24 only expands on the ease of use. The operation manual is surprisingly simple and laid out in a practical order with helpful hints and notes. The R24 is equally useful as a "sketchbook" or for larger projects. Build quality is good but the enclosure is plastic hence the four stars vs. five though I still highly recommend as its battery power option, light weight, and eight simultaneous inputs make it mobile and capable of recording multiple instruments/vocals in a take. Mixing down is simple on the R24 or on the included Cubase LE version DAW. Bottom line, good product at a reasonable price.
