Zoom R16 - for homerecording and on the go

woodheart, 09.10.2009
I find the Zoom R16 is a successful solution for homerecording. Here you can record 8 inputs simultaneously and the whole at 96 kHz and 24 Bit. The included Cubase 4 LE is enough to take first pictures.

Particularly successful, the internal effects can be added as send / return the inputs and the headphones output. Nice when you sing something and has some reverb on the voice without the Hallsignal then on the recording. Vermouth drops, which only works at 44 kHz. In most cases, however, I think it is anyway enough to record with this bit rate. The Zoom R16 is not supposed to be a replacement for a professional studio.

The fact that only two microphone inputs are supplied with phantom power should not be a problem for the hobbyist. On the one hand there are still enough inputs for dynamic microphones and on the other hand the built-in microphones can be used very well. You only have to find a good place so that the internal microphones of the R16 are at the correct height and at the correct angle to the recording. The mics are pretty good. I use the orchestral desk deluxe for this purpose; As shown in Fig.

The R16 is so very good to use and you have all the displays well in view. I use the R16 also to the operation of the DAW. 5 keys are freely assignable with functions, which are used more often. Transport control and track selection as well as the switching on of recording / mute / solo fold very well.

Not to mention that the installation of the R16 driver can be a bit difficult. Under Vista and XP it should work, but with Win7 (RC) one must already some tricks apply. I hope that ZOOM there with a driverupdate remedy creates.

As a standalone the R16 needs some time to settle, but then it can be relatively easy to use. So, without having to turn on the computer, you can quickly bring a few song ideas to the SD card. Also a tape sample is recorded so fast and you can mix demos, at least simple, with it.

I bought the R16 more for the homerecording and therefore can not say much about the standalone operation. But now and then I take some ideas with the acoustic guitar and use the internal microphones. This is enough to work with the imported tracks later in the Cubase 5 Essential.
Otherwise, I am with the R16 very satisfied.

An unbeatable price / performance ratio with this equipment and the range of functions.

Zoom R16, or how to record your group.

Big Jack, 19.05.2011
I bought this Zoom R16 in order to make models for my different groups and it really does the job.

Features / Fabrication:

16 tracks, 8 entries. The manufacture is a little cheap, everything is plastic so it will not be maltreated. The advantage is that it is very light, it can be carried in a backpack to go repeat and it is practical. Despite intensive use since its acquisition, no problem to be deplored, no touches that go away, nothing at all.

The simulations and effects that are found inside are really not incredible but can help out in case of need.

Use:

From a usage point of view, it is really plug and play. One quickly understands how it works, and personally I have used the manual very little.
One can reproach him the fact that it is sometimes necessary to use many buttons to carry out a very simple manipulation, but one quickly takes the habit, so it is not inconvenient besides.
Transferring files to your computer is also very simple.


Conclusion:

This Zoom R16 is a great tool to start recording. A very good value for money!

The +:

The price
The 8 mixed inputs and the 16 tracks
The simplicity of use
Congestion and reduced weight to carry it back

The - :

The look a little cheap (but hey, for the price, it's normal that it is plastic)
Simulations that are not at the top.
