About Zoom ZR8

The R8 is equipped with built-in effects and a 24-voice pad sampler, making it a full-function audio production center. Plus, you can use the R8 as an audio interface, further bolstering the functionality of this sweet little recorder.

With a sampler function that consists of 24 built-in voices, the R8's built-in drum sounds can be triggered using 8 pads and 3 bank keys to assign sounds to each track and create loops. In addition, you can use the unit's drum machine to create original backing beats or output a metronome for tempo control.

The R8 comes with a 2 GB SD card and supports up to 32 GB SDHC cards, for a maximum of 100 track hours. According to Zoom, 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.

Using the unit's USB audio interface, you can take your R8 into your studio and record additional tracks. When you're ready to mix, use the R8's control surface capabilities to manage each function of your choice of DAW software. The R8 additionally offers 150 pro-quality guitar and studio effects to further enhance your recordings.
