About This Listing

Zoom R8 8-Track Digital Multi Track Recorder, Sampler with USB
The R8 from Zoom unites many different audio tools into a
single powerful unit; Zoom takes the turbocharged design of the R24 and scales
it down for an ultra-portable music production solution. Like its predecessor,
the R8 combines four production tools in one versatile device. In addition to
being an 8-track recorder that utilizes SD memory, the R8 is an audio interface,
a DAW control
surface and a sampler complete with drum pads and a rhythm machine.

Simultaneous recording of 2 tracks and playback
of 8 tracks
The R8 is the perfect tool for capturing audio on-the-go. Record
live music performances, rehearsals, songwriting sessions or even audio for film
and video. Playback up to eight tracks of audio at up to 24-bit/48kHz resolution
as WAV files.
If you make a mistake, use the UNDO/REDO function to cancel the last recording
operation and restore the previous state. You can even mix down completed songs
inside the R8 and save a mix for each project.

Audio interface supports 2 inputs and 2
When combined with your computer, the R8 becomes a powerful audio
interface. Connect the R8 to your computer via USB, launch
your favorite DAW or use
the included Cubase
LE software
and start laying down your tracks. Simultaneous 2-in/2-out capability allows you
to record up to 24-bit/96kHz high definition audio. If you use the 44.1kHz
sampling rate, the internal DSP effects
of the R8 are also available for your computer tracks. A dedicated control lets
you adjust the mixing balance between the DAW
playback sound and the direct sound for monitoring.

Control surface functions for most DAW
The R8 can be used as a control surface for DAW
transport functions (play, record, stop) and mixing operations. Through a USB
connection, you can control the transport and mixing functions of major DAWs such
as Cubase,
Logic, and Sonar from the R8. In addition, you can easily move multiple faders
at the same time. No more mixing with a mouse! The R8 makes mixing a pleasure.

8-voice sampler with 8 pads
The built-in
sampler functions allow you to loop audio data on any track. You can play the
pads in real-time and combine loops to create a performance for an entire song.
When setting loop intervals, you can see the waveforms for visual confirmation.
Time-stretching, which allows you to change the tempo without changing the
pitch, and trimming the unneeded parts of loops, is also possible. You can use
the sampler and recorder functions together seamlessly to play back loop tracks
while recording instrumental performances on other tracks.
