« Portable and lots of effects »

Published on 11/29/12 at 05:04
The Zoom R24 is a digital multi-track recorder costing fewer than 500 dollars. The thing that stands out the most to me about it is that it comes stocked with over 100 different effects right out of the box. That is almost unheard of for a multi-track recorder in this price range. It has some guitar amp models/replicas that you probably would pay a fortune for if you purchased them alone in the VST format.
Setting up the R24 is very simple, and it is overall easy to use. It is an 8 in and 2 out device that connects to your computer via USB. It works great with Cubase and Logic on both Mac computers and Windows systems. You can record up to 8 tracks simultaneously and play back up to 24 tracks simultaneously which is just enough as long as you are not using this recorder to run a big session.
This recorder is small and compact, and it comes with some great features for it to be as little and affordable as it is. You can run it through a wall power outlet or you can run it from batteries which are really convenient making it really portable. It records in WAV format which is decent, but it would be nice if it did have a few other options just for demo purposes.
After purchasing this you will need to get some sort of a travel case or travel bag for it so you do not damage it. I have heard many people say that if you drop this one time, it is pretty much over with. I purchased a bag for it under 50 dollars which was a good buy. I have also used the Zoom R16 model which is very similar to this one except it only has 16 tracks on it. If you don’t need 16 or 24 they also have a Zoom R8 that is very affordable.
