The R16 can record eight simultaneous tracks, 16 tracks vituelles. Hours of high quality recording with a SDHC card of up to 32GB!
The drummer in my band has one and it is often used to record our rehearsals, including via the built-in microphones that are tracks 7 and 8 when activated.
Registration is done in WAV, sampling 44.1 kHz (CD quality). The R16 is the 4x4 recorders, because if we can use the help of software like Cubase, Pro Tools or another, he has enough alone to save wherever you go thanks to built-in microphones and ability to operate on battery. Many effects for voice, guitar, bass ... including reverb, amp simulations, autowha, EQ ... embellish everything, like the Korg pandora but much more complete (pity that there is no looper, but that price is already full).
The second USB port allows you to connect a second R16 (or R24) as a slave to move to a recording 16 simultaneous tracks!
2) AUDIO INTERFACE:
Compatible with PC / Mac with the most current software computer music, the R16 is a true 8 audio inputs / 2 outputs interface with master volume + volume separated by track, gain control, phantom power, headphone jack and setting his headphone, monitor outputs with adjustable sound monitors, lights saturation of the total brief entry ...!
3) CONTROL SURFACE
What's more frustrating than having to bend his sound PC, take the mouse to adjust the input level of a track or start recording? The R16 also based DAW via Mackie Control emulation. We can therefore, in its software computer music, arming tracks you want, adjust the input level of each track, start playback, recording, stop it all, speed, go back, put a track solo ... only by manipulating the R16. How fortunate to have a control surface less than 400 €! The only downside for the faders are not motorized, but ...
3 1 / Very versatile
8 inputs combo XLR / jack 6.35 mm
Can run on batteries
Witnesses saturation input on each track (Meter)
Possibility to combine a another R16/24 for 16-track recording
Basic practical effects but not transcendent
