    Features of the Zoom R16 Portable Multitrack Recorder/Interface/Controller:


    Using the R16 for Music

    It's a Recorder...

    With the ability to record up to 8 tracks simultaneously, the R16 is perfect for recording everything: from music production and rehearsals to field recording and live performances. The R16 also features the same built-in stereo condenser microphones found on an H4 for convenient "sketch-pad" capturing of ideas or rehearsals.

    Use the Hi-Z inputs for direct connection of guitar or bass, and get rocking with built-in guitar and bass amp and effects models. 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.


    It's an Interface.

    The R16 is more than a multi-track recorder. It's also a powerful workstation when using USB power for studio operation. Connect the R16 to your laptop or desktop computer via USB, launch your favorite DAW or use the included Cubase LE 4, and start laying down your production tracks. With the 8 balanced, combination XLR-1/4-inch inputs 2 outputs (8 x 2), you can record high-definition, 24-bit/96kHz audio (2 x 2). Use the R16's built-in effects as you lay down tracks on your computer.


    It's a Controller!

    Computers bring incredible control and power to the recording process, but they're not very intuitive when it comes to mixing. And mixing makes the music. So, when you're ready to mix, the R16 is right there with you. With its USB operation, you can control the functions of your DAW software from the R16 for easy mixing with fine-tuned control. No more mixing with a mouse! The R16's intuitive, mixing console feel, and LED meter bridge makes mixing your tracks a pleasure.


    Using the R16 for Video Applications

    For media and filmmakers, the R16 makes it easy to record audio with booms, handheld mics or up to 8 lavaliers with wireless setups. Great for sound effects recording or anyone looking for multiple audio feeds in a remote environment, the R16 is lightweight, portable solution to your location video shoot needs.


    Location shoots

    Perfect for shooting on location, the R16 is well-suited for corporate event shoots where there are multiple speakers, industrials, education settings, talk shows or panel discussions where you don't want to compromise audio quality even with budget limitations that pervade today's media environment.

    Of course, the R16 includes a stereo headphone output for continuous monitoring and with the LED meter bridge, its easy to be sure all your levels are set appropriately for the source.M


    Good to Go...

    Best of all, the R16 will operate for almost 5 hours on 6 standard AA batteries, making it convenient to run on location without the added complication of charging battery packs. Use the R16 as a battery powered mixer, even when you're not recording!


    Post-production

    Transfer large amounts of audio in no time with the USB 2.0 interface that makes the R16 a drag and drop time saver and a pleasure to use. That means less time in post is spent building up your project, especially when you're using the R16 to gather natural sound on a shoot.

    Because the R16 is also a control surface, it becomes a convenient audio editing tool using a variety of video editing software packages such as Final Cut Pro. Or use the onboard mixer to create a mix on the fly and bounce to a stereo master using the built-in mastering effects to sweeten the tracks.


    Ready for V/O

    Sometimes a project calls for additional voiceover tracks, either on location as a "scratch track" or in the editing studio. And with phantom power, high-quality mic preamps and vocal effects onboard, the R16 is ready to roll in any situation.


    Expand your horizons.

    Expandability is often a big part of using a piece of gear on location. With the R16, you can connect two R16 units via USB, one can be designated to function as the USB master and the other as the USB slave, allowing synchronized transport operation and recording on 16 tracks simultaneously.


    Built-in high-sensitivity stereo microphones

    When you want to quickly record natural sound or room audio from the location, the R16's built-in set of stereo mics will come in handy. Sound effects, speeches or dialog can be captured with excellent clarity.

    With the R16, versatility, control and portability come together in one recorder that lets you produce professional results everywhere you go.

    The Zoom Story

    Zoom traces its roots back to 1983, starting as a group of engineers developing components for other companies. With the release of the 9002 guitar processor in 1989, Zoom's first branded product was well received among amateur and semi-professional musicians.

Many of their products offer multiple feature sets for a variety of hobbyist and professional applications, often with a USB computer connection for both portability and flexible integration into existing systems.
