Zoom's R16 Portable 16-Track recorder is a multi-track recording package offering 16-track playback and 8-track simultaneous recording utilizing Secure Digital (SD) memory. The R16 is comprised of three production tools in one device: a multi-track recorder, an audio interface, and a control surface (with Mackie control emulation).
For additional portability, the R16 runs on six AA batteries. Cubase LE is included for DAW-based production via USB (the control surface and audio interface can be powered via USB). Sixteen- or 24-bit recording at 44.1 kHz sampling is supported, up to 24-bit, 96 kHz via software, and a 1 GB SD card is included. Hardware I/O includes eight combo XLR-1/4-inch inputs, a direct input for guitar or bass and two outputs. Two inputs support phantom power.
Supporting up to 32 GBs on SD memory, the R16 allows for up to 100 track hours recording on all 16 tracks.
