Zoom takes the turbocharged design of the R24 and scales it down for an ultra-portable music production solution. Like its predecessor, the R8 combines four production tools in one versatile device. In addition to being an 8-track recorder that utilizes SD memory, the R8 is an audio interface, a control surface and a pad sampler.
It’s a Recorder.
With the ability to record two tracks simultaneously, the R8 is perfect for capturing audio on-the-go. Record live music performances, rehearsals, songwriting sessions or even audio for film and video. Capture your audio at up to 24-bit/48kHz resolution as WAV files. On each of its side panels, the R8 features a built-in stereo condenser microphone for field recording or quick, convenient “sketch-pad” ideas. When you’re ready, you can use over 140 built-in studio effects to enhance your tracks and the pro-quality mastering effects to ensure that studio sound.
It’s an Interface.
The R8 is more than a multi-track recorder. When combined with your compute, it becomes a powerful audio interface. Connect the R8 to your computer via USB, launch your favorite DAW or use the included Cubase LE software and start laying down your tracks. Simultaneous 2-in/2-out capability allows you to record up to 24-bit/96kHz high-definition audio. If you use the 44.1kHz sampling rate, the internal DSP effects of the R8 are also available for your computer tracks. A dedicated control lets you adjust the mixing balance between the DAW playback sound and the direct sound for monitoring.
It’s a Controller.
Computers bring incredible control and power to the recording process, but they’re not very intuitive when it comes to mixing. Through a simple USB connection, you can control the transport and mixing functions of major DAWs such as Cubase, Logic, and Sonar from the R8. No more mixing with a mouse! The R8 makes mixing a pleasure.
And it’s a Sampler!
The R8’s sampler function consists of eight voices triggered by eight built-in pads. Samples can also be assigned to each pad to create loops. It also has internal drum loops, which allow you to easily create pro-quality backing and basic tracks. Not only does the R8 offer over 500 drum patterns to work with, it also includes a 2GB SD card containing 500MB of drum loops recorded by Big Fish Audio.
Best of all, the R8 will operate on four standard AA alkaline batteries (not included) for over five hours of continuous use. In addition, the R8 comes with a 2GB SD card and supports up to 32GB SDHC cards for a maximum of 100 track hours. Using SD media for recording not only makes the R8 lighter and more portable, it also ensures increased reliability with no concern for hard drive failure. The R8 can also function under USB bus power or with the included AC adapter.
With the new R8 from Zoom, versatility, control and comprehensive features come together in a single device that fits in a guitar case.
8-track playback, 2-track simultaneous recording
48V phantom power available on 2 tracks
Over 150 DSP effects including guitar amp models and mastering effects

Newbie review of R8
Good unit, already recorded few ideas and effects are easy to use. Drums however not intiutive and song sequencing , still need to read manual and also videos online to learn. A lot of potential, but I need more time and patience to actually make it work.
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Bought it Love it
Being new to music recording I was looking for a decent multi-track recorder and a audio interface to use with a DAW. I didn't need too many inputs as I can only play one instrument at a time anyway. But I did want to be able to playback as many tracks as possible. There is simply nothing else on the market that can match the R8 in terms of bang for buck! I have found it really easy and intuitive to use. The manual is good and the LCD screen is very usable. However I do hear an initial audio 'burst' when I record over an existing track. Its not there on playback so no problem, but hopefully it gets fixed in the next software release Haven't tried it as a control surface or drum machine yet, thats for next week.
