Product Description

Product Information:

  • Digital recorder with 16-track playback and 8-track simultaneous recording utilizing Secure Digital (SD) memory
  • 16/24-bit/44.1kHz linear PCM recording in WAV format
  • Built-in stereo condenser microphones
  • Includes 1GB SD card and supports cards up to 32GB SDHC


The R65 and R80 feature a custom 6. 8-inch 2 Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter that responds to the subtlest wave forms and the highest frequencies. This allows you to hear the "air" and the greater sense of space that is characteristic of audiophile recordings. The R series' transparent and highly accurate sound makes them ideal for use in both commercial and home recording studios as well as broadcast and post-production environments.

The Zoom R8 Multitrack Recorder

Recorder : Sampler : Interface : Controller

The compact and versatile R8 is a great choice for home recordists and road warriors alike. Not only is it a full-featured 8-track recorder with physical faders, it's a pad sampler, a rhythm machine, and a loop-based sequencer, too-plus it can serve as a DAW control surface and audio interface. Advanced features include built-in stereo condenser microphones, dual mic/line/instrument inputs, and over 140 onboard DSP effects.

8-track playback, 2-track simultaneous recording to SD cards up to 32 GB

Dual mic/line/instrument level inputs on XLR/TRS combo connectors and built-in stereo condenser microphones

Dual balanced output jacks and headphone output with dedicated volume control

Over 140 onboard effects, as well as a built-in metronome, chromatic tuner, and variable playback speed with or without pitch change

Full control surface functionality (Mackie Control emulation), plus mixing and transport controls for Cubase, Logic, Ableton Live, and other DAWs

Operates off AA batteries or power adapter

Complete control

If you use DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) software but hate mixing with a mouse, the R8 provides the perfect solution. It can act as a full-featured control surface for popular DAWs such as Cubase, Logic, and GarageBand, adding real faders and transport/status buttons that streamline the process of creating the perfect mix.

Multitrack recording has never been easier

The R8 provides eight tracks for recording and playback in full fidelity WAV format, making it ideal for both professional production and for use as a musical sketchpad. Battery operation allows for field recording and enables you to capture your ideas quickly. You can connect external microphones, instruments, or line-level sources directly to the R8, or use the built-in stereo mic pair for minimal setup. When your multitrack recording is complete, you can use the R8's internal mixer, complete with physical faders, equalization, panning, and built-in effects-including amp models and mastering effects like multi-band compression-to create a stereo mix with studio-quality sound.

Create music any way you like

However you choose to build your musical productions, you'll find the R8 to be the ultimate creative tool.

Eight velocity-sensitive pads enable you to trigger samples, drum sounds, or loops—you can even create your own custom samples and loops from recorded audio tracks. Quantization and time-stretching can be applied to ensure perfect synchronization, and the onboard audio sequencer allows step entry when absolute precision is required.

The R8 also provides more than 140 great-sounding DSP effects, including guitar amp, bass amp, and mic preamp models, plus mastering algorithms such as multi-band compression. Effects can be applied during recording and mixdown, or can be used for playback only. In addition, the R8's USB port allows it to act as a 2-input/2-output interface for DAWs such as the Cubase LE.
