About Zoom R16

The Zoom R16 unites many different audio tools into a single powerful unit; it's a stand-alone multi-track recorder and a USB 2.0 computer audio interface/control surface, as well as a battery powered field recorder & mixer. Whether you're recording musicians, working on an indie film, or taking notes in biology class, you'll always have a use for the Zoom R16.

Using the R16 as a stand-alone recorder could mean many different things to different people. If you're a musician, this means that you can record a full live band and overdub up to 16 tracks, without ever touching a computer. If you're a film maker, you can record all of your lavalier and shotgun microphones in the field and mix them to camera as well. If you're a photographer, you can record ambient sounds for use in a slide show presentation and use the R16 as the playback device at the installation.

Using the R16 as a USB 2.0 audio interface to record into a computer also opens up different possibilities. Musicians can use it to track and mix with their favorite music production program, or use the included Cubase 4 LE software. Film makers and photographers can record voice overs and ADR (additional dialog recording) directly into their favorite non-linear editing programs like Final Cut Pro.

The control surface capabilities of the R16 will also benefit Final Cut Pro users (and other NLE programs). Its dedicated transport controls and jog/shuttle can be used to control the software, allowing the user to be less dependent on their mouse and keyboard. This is a huge benefit for musicians as well. Control surfaces help people focus on their creative work, rather than make them feel like they're checking their email.

With all of the potential uses and creative possibilities the R16 provides, it truly stands in a class of its own. When you factor in its budget-friendly price-tag, it really becomes an incredible option for any aspiring creative person.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Will this run with SONAR X-2, For SURE????
Andrew R  Unfortunately the manufacturer does not specifically indicate 100% compatibility with SONAR X-2. The audio interface manual does indicate that it should work with SONAR, however no specific model/series/release number are indicated.
Harrison W  I am trying to use the Cubase Le software that came with this system, however, when I launch the software, it is asking for an activation code that is supposed to come with this product. I have looked throughout the entire box, but I do not see one. Where would it be?
jocelyn m  Hi Using Zoom R 16 for first time. As soon as I put the power on, I see "USB or Interface . I do not have it hooped up to my computer and need to use it as a stand alone recorder. Can someone help me with this problem of getting out of the USD or Interface set up? Thanks a lot
