Zoom R8 Mixer/Digital Recorder/Sequencer - Purchased in November 2018/Delivered very early December

FC Music , 11.01.2018
Great service from Thomann and DHL. Only downside was An Post in Ireland who appear to be unable to state when delivery will occur. Parcel arrived unexpectedly by An Post without prior warning. Luckily I was at home at the time. However, all credit to Thomann for excellent products, pricing, and customer service. I would happily pay a bit extra for a better home delivery service than An Post.
The Zoom R8 itself is a great bit of kit. Compact but robust, clever design and feature packed. The manual isn't 100% but plenty of good YouTube videos especially those by RMenza and BobBrit who have clearly and concisely given excellent instruction on the operating procedures. Sound quality is excellent as long as you have good sound coming in. Always check sound quality and levels before recording. Used quality monitors or headphones. The recording is a doddle and its relatively simple to add effects from presets. Looping and sequencing are easy as long as you use beats and bars as your time sequence. Always remember to set your Tempo to the BPM. I use VSTs from Abelton Lite and as long as the BPM is synched there is never a problem.
I am delighted with this little marvel. My only downside (and this was due to budgetary constraints) is limited 1/4 inch inputs (2) and number of tracks (8). In hindsight the R16 or R24 would have been better suited to my needs but I have a workaround in using the recorder on my keyboard and a bit of Abelton assistance.
A 10/10 for Thomann and a 10/10 for Zoom. I've had a blast since its arrival. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. Like all complex systems you MUST give it time to become familiar with its workings. Some audio mags have clearly not given it time in their reviews. The Zoom does its business efficiently, effectively and very cost effectively.

Portable home studio recording!!

Asterios, 17.04.2018
I have already ordered from Thomann Zoom R16, some years ago and I liked it so much that I decided to order again, this time the smaller version, R8!!

Here is my short review with pros & cons:
Pros:
High quality!
Ease of use!
Portability (works also with 4 x AA batteries!)
Built-in stereo condenser microphone!
150 DSP Effects!
Nice faders!

Cons:
The only main con for me is that is only 2 tracks simultaneous recording (8-Track playback!)
So, if you need more than 2 tracks simultaneous recording check the bigger models (R16 or R24)

All in all, a fine portable recording studio!!!
Highly recommended!!
