Good recorder for the home use

I use the ZOOM R16 or my home recording of the keyboard (stereo), acoustic and electric guitar and vocal. We use the same but another device in our band, so I can easily correct or improve live recordings back home. I also use it as the mixing desk and the computer USB audio interface in order to minimise the equipment in my home studio.

It works fine although the controls are a bit awkward and you need to go several levels deep into the menues to make some basic adjustments. Otherwise, it makes good recordings and also works flawlessly with Cubase 8, even providing a reasonably good DAW interface. The equalisers and the effects are good enough.

There are some drawbacks and problems needing mentioning. First, we had some problems with the SD cards on both recorders - the files in the folders got corrupted, some recordings were overridden (luckily we had copies on the computers). It may be that we have tampered with the files on the SD cards on the computer and have caused the problem ourselves, but it should not have happened at all. Further, one of the potentiometers on the older device (but not very old - about two years) is losing the contact and has to be knocked-on to start working, which is really annoying. Mine is almost one year old now and has no problems so far.

In conclusion, it is a usable device for home use, and especially good value for the money. Being a strict amateur, I would probably buy it again. However, I could not recommend it for any more serious work beyond that.

A simple to use eight track recorder that produces faithful recordings in WAV onto SDHC card. My own use of the R16 is limited to recording only; I transfer the WAV files to PC and edit on freeware, so I can make no comment on ease or functionality of editing on R16. The built-in effects are a mixed bag of mediocrity, but as a clean and straightforward multitrack audio recorder the R16 is very acceptable.

Does everything well

I bought one unit first to try it out, and then I bought another one to use as a slave for recording 16 tracks at once. It works like a charm! You can record 8 tracks at once, 16 all in all. With two units, you get twice that. Easy set up and the controls are simple, like old Tascam units. This setup has completely replaced laptops etc. from my recording setup. Two inputs provide phantom power, nice to have when recording drums. Can be easily used for recording the entire band in a single session. If you know how to operate a cd-player, you'll have no problems using this. Keep in mind, the chassis is plastic (good quality though!), so do not mistreat your unit and it will last a long time. Zoom is a Japanese company, so you will get more features than you asked for. I haven't used any of the presets, but there are effects, presets and too many things to list here, software-wise. Build quality is excellent!

Zooming to the heights.

I bought this to replace a Tascam DP01fx which was high mileage and beginning to show its age. Compared to that unit the effects are cleaner and the unit is less prone to earth hum. The signal flow is better thought out making it less likely to inadvertently leave a channel open while recording.

The inputs are very stiff but perhaps will loosen up with use. Either that or just keep a lead permanently in every socket. The built in mics are very poor and have a high pitched whistle in the background. This makes them only of use when using the machine as a notebook but would prevent you doing any kind of decent demo.

While basic recording is fairly straight forward using the effects will require you to get up close and personal with the instruction book.

All in all I am pleased with this unit but would recommend using an external mic.

Simultaneous recording of 8 inputs is the best

I don't know much about track recording, but this device has helped me in so many ways.

Our band needed to record tracks and this was the best option to record all the instruments at the same time, for cheap.

Don't loose the manual!!! You'll rip all of your hair off if you do. You might know what to do, but figuring out how to do that, might become a problem. After a few uses though. I've gotten familiar with the device and it is fairly quick to use... depending on what I'm doing that is.

For 90% of the actions you have to fool around with the menus and that can get really annoying, but that is kind of the nature of most music devices. It's much better than my Boss-br800, because this actually has buttons to press. Also removing all the parts of a project is a pain, so I'd recommend just starting a new one.

I'm not sure if this is due to my cables or the device, but the inputs for 1/4 jacks are tight! Once I put my cables in. I found out that it's near impossible to get them out. To me it doesn't matter much because I don't remove them often.

I was a bit confused at first with the sound, but the sliders control how loud the playback is and the knobs above the sliders control the recording volume. I thought it was the other way around.

It's all plastic and as long as you don't start dancing on it, you'll be fine and it wont break. The microphones on the device are decent at best, but I've not used them a lot.

My uses for the device are:
1. Recording somewhat seriously.
2. Recording, so that the band can remember their parts for a song we are working on. (it's a lot easier to record a song instead of writing the notes down)
