Samson Zoom R16 Portable 16-Track Recorder, Audio Interface and Controller

State-of-the-art professional USB and battery powered recording device with simultaneous 8 track recording, 16 track playback and 100+ built-in mastering effects

Zoom once again revolutionizes digital recording with the first digital recorder with 16-track playback and 8-track simultaneous recording utilizing Secure Digital (SD) memory. The R16 is three production tools in one device: a multi-track recorder, an audio interface and a control surface, providing all the tools necessary to create studio-quality recordings. Additionally, the R16 runs on only 6 AA batteries for the ultimate in multi-track portability.

With the R16, recording artists, songwriters, sound engineers and film sound professionals alike can record up to 32 GBs on an SD card. The SD recording, while incredibly convenient for file transferring, also makes the R16 significantly lighter. SD recording also avoids the pitfalls of a potential crashing hard drive and allows for up to 100 track hours of recording using all 16 tracks.

“We have learned a great deal from the success of our H2 and H4n as well as HD8 and HD16, our past multi-track recorders,” says Masa Iijima, CEO of Zoom Corporation. “With the R16 we have brought the most important capabilities from each of these product lines into our design to make a unique and versatile music production solution.”

Connect the R16 to your laptop or desktop computer via USB, launch your favorite DAW or use the included Cubase LE; and, immediately start laying down your production tracks. In addition, USB operation means you can control each function of your favorite DAW software from the R16 for easy mixing with fine-tuned control.

“The R16 is the all-in-one solution for all kinds of challenges that musicians face,” says Mark Wilder, Samson Director of Marketing. “Its versatility and portability along with the power to record so many tracks simultaneously, makes the R16 another indispensible product from Zoom,” added Wilder.
With the R16, versatility, control and portability come together in one recorder that lets you produce professional results everywhere you go.
