Product Description

The Zoom R8 Multitrack SD Recorder Controller and Interface is everything you need to start recording today! Zoom takes the turbocharged design of the R24 and reduces the footprint for a portable, powerful music production solution. Like its predecessor, the R8 combines four production tools in one incredibly versatile device. In addition to being a multi-track recorder with 8-track playback and 2-track simultaneous recording using SD memory cards, the R8 is an audio interface, a control surface and a pad sampler.

Zoom R8 SD Recorder Controller and Interface Features

  • Multi-track Recorder:
    • 8-channel playback, 2-channel simultaneous recording
    • 48V phantom power available on 2 tracks
    • Over 150 DSP effects including guitar amp models and mastering effects
    • Records on up to 32GB SDHC cards for maximum recording time
    • Two balanced XLR-1/4-inch combination inputs
    • Records in WAV 48kHz/44.1kHz at 16-bit or 24-bit
    • Over four hours of operation using four AA batteries/USB bus power (AC adapter included) 
    • Sync two R8s via USB for 4 tracks of simultaneous recording
  • Audio Interface:
    • High-definition 24-bit/96kHz recording capability using digital audio software
    • 2 in / 1 out (2 x 1) via USB
  • Control Surface: 
    • Full mixing and transport controls for Cubase, Logic, Sonar and more! 
    • USB Control Surface uses Mackie Control emulation
  • Sampler: 
    • Pad sampler with 24 voices (8 pads x 3 banks) 
    • Loop-based audio sequencer for music creation
  • Also Includes: 
    • 1.5GB drum loops, Steinberg Cubase LE DAW software 
    • Built-in stereo condenser microphones for instant recording
The R8's 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 the 1.5GB of included 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 high-quality recordings anywhere.

The R8 supports up to 32GB SDHC cards for a maximum of 100 track hours. Using SD media for recording not only makes the R8 lighter and more portable, it also ensures increased reliability with no concern for a crashing hard drive.

Take your R8 into your studio and record additional tracks using its USB audio interface. Then when you're ready to mix, use the R8's control surface capabilities to manage each function of your favorite DAW software. Incorporate any of the150+ DSP effects to enhance your recording and use the pro-quality mastering effects to complete that studio sound.

With the Zoom R8, versatility, control and comprehensive features come together in a single device that fits in a guitar case and makes on-the-go multi-tracking a breeze.

No SD Card Included

What is your opinion of this product?
Very good sounding recorder once you get past the learning curve- but it's worth it. Other retailers include a very small 2GB SD card - not with this one. I paid $11 for 32 GB- no big deal but you need one to record. AMS quick and accurate shipping . Happy so far!

SO - MANY - FEATURES!
What is your opinion of this product?
I was going to buy a truckload of gear, but I got this instead. That truckload of gear is all in the box. All of the pedals and amps any guitarist/bassist could want, a sampler, a drum machine, mastering effects, and probably a lot more features than most will ever get to, but it's there. There is definitely a learning curve, but given all that this thing does, be realistic and expect that. This is a pretty complete recording studio that fits in a purse. There is a better manual on amazon, for free, and I recommend it to save time getting started. The more you learn, the better your recordings will sound. Just for perspective, I spent just as much, nearly 20 years ago, on a tascam 4 track cassette recorder with none of the good stuff included. Realize everything this little zoomer does - there is no bigger bang for your buck. This is your new studio.

Not user friendly
What is your opinion of this product?
I’m fairly new to multi track recorders but have used them in the past. However this Zoom R8 has been nothing short of a headache. The instructions are vague and useless to a novice such as myself. I’ve not been able to use it since purchasing it. I planned to have my daughter use it to record vocals but we’ve not figured out how to upload wav files successfully. I would suggest looking for a more user friendly multi track recorder.

Simple, quality, versatile, and worth every penny!
What is your opinion of this product?
Whenever I buy anything that's over twenty bucks, I research like crazy before I spend my money. I can say with certainty that if you are interested in becoming a better songwriter, this Zoom r8 is the very best choice. Here's why I am so sure. 1. The simplicity of the r8 is awesome and it's clear that Zoom took their time in designing the button layout and inputs so that everything feels natural. Watch a YouTube video or two and you are going to be happy with how quickly you are able to operate the r8. I can arm a track, set levels and be recording in under a minute; overdubbing is even faster. 2. The sound quality is clear and warm on playback. The sliders move with the right amount of weight so that you can dial in your levels without worrying about knocking the other sliders up or down. 3. This recorder is capable of doing a whole dang album if you wanted to! Its drum program actually sound surprisingly solid and full of punch. What really grabbed my attention and impressed me was how cool the distorted tones were on this! Clean is easy, it has all that from straight forward to ambient, but I was actually digging the onboard tone for my guitar. 4. This is so much more fun than I thought it would be. I have improved my vocals, vastly improved my timing, and most importantly I am writing better than I ever have. This truly is worth the price and you can never go wrong with the free shipping, no sales tax and the piece of mind that after the 1yr manufacturers warranty runs out, AMS gives you an extra year long warranty that begins when the manufacturer warranty ends.
