    Zoom R16 Review - Zoom R16: All-Rounder

    DAW systems are good but you don't always have a computer by when you feel the rush to record music. Mini studios were created for that purpose: they are practical solutions but not very comprehensive nor ergonomic. That's why Zoom launched the R16, an hybrid tool you can use as digital audio interface, controller and standalone mini studio. Let's take a look at the result...

Zoom R16
It multitrack recorder that can serve as mixer while it is not its main feature. It takes one input Hi-Z (high impedance) to connect a guitar, a phantom power supply on the tracks 5 / 6 and two condenser microphones integrated.
It can also be used in DAW control surface.

The drivers are stable. No need for software to use as a multitrack. It can record 8 tracks simultaneously and play 16.

The implementation is difficult. The manual is not clear. Fortunately it's in French ... Condenser microphones are of poor quality. I buy the same in a music store in the room € 1.5 ... DAW function does not work with my software. It should be used with Cubase LE 5 I do not use.

I can use it for. Its functionality as a multitrack is correct despite its complexity. Condenser microphones are unusable.
