Powerful, Portable Recording Buddy If you just want to plug and play, you'll like the R8. On the R8, you can field record, make a quick demo, and capture a live show with two channels of simultaneous recording, both capable of running on 48V phantom power, in your choice of resolution: 96/48/44.1 kHz at 16-bit or 24-bit quality. The R8 also offers eight playback channels for monitoring and blending your recording. To increase your channel count, sync two R8 units via USB for a total of four tracks of simultaneous recording.
Two balanced XLR-1/4" inputs give you the option of using your own microphones to record with the R8. But if you really must grab and go, the R8 features high-sensitivity stereo microphones that fit the bill for live recording.
The R8 conveniently records to SDHC/SD cards, which can be easily swapped out, stored, and backed-up on USB memory sticks and other memory devices. Pop in a 32 GB card for up to 100 hours of track recording! The R8 comes standard with a 2 GB card, so you can start recording right away.
Compact Audio Interface and DAW Controller Designed to be portable, ultra light, and super easy to use, the R8 is your one-stop recording station that just so happens to double as a 2-channel, 96 kHz/24-bit audio interface. When connected to a Mac or PC via USB, the R8 can also serve as a handy hardware controller for any standard DAW software. The R8 comes with Steinberg Cubase LE. Dedicated controls make it easy to adjust the blends and balances when mixing down your latest recording in your digital audio workstation.
It's a Sampler/Looper Workstation, Too As with Zoom's other R Series recorders, the R8 can easily loop audio data, enabling you to sample and loop tracks on the fly. Want to make beats? That's easy to do on the R8, too -- the portable recorder sports touch-sensitive drum pads with 10 different kit sound models, which you can use to build and store over 500 of your own drum patterns. If you're crunched for time, you can get your beats from the R8's 500 MB of preprogrammed drum loops from Big Fish Audio.
In designing the R8, Zoom really did think of everything: the R8 also comes with a built-in tuner and metronome. Stay on the beat and stay in tune, no matter what or where you record.
Loaded with DSP Effects When it's time to sweeten your tracks, turn to the R8's loaded effects engine equipped with more than 146 types of DSP effects and 370 patches. As a bonus, the R8 includes 18 guitar amp models and 6 bass amp models, plus 7 insert modules, each with their own effects for guitars, basses, vocals, and other instruments and special sounds. Have a blast using one insert effect and two send-return effects simultaneously.
