Return of the creativity

Falk S., 17.03.2012
We musicians often have problems with our creativity flow - sounds funny, but is so. Most of the time you do not know exactly why it does not work with the new song, the great baseline, the break-up solo or the hammerbeat.

An obstacle has shown me the Zoom R8 now: too much computer!

It gave me a simple way to record songs. On the first day with the device I recorded great songs and was very enthusiastic. Easy to play, play effects. My creativity was quickly awakened.

A small break in the enthusiasm came when I wanted to use the R8 as an interface for PC recordings - here somehow did nothing at all right. But that may well have been due to me.

Yesterday came the full enthusiasm again, when I made a Livemitschnitt with it. I usually play solo and have played with band a long time ago - adventurous stuff stuffed together to be able to take everything off.

I had two PA systems in use and had also in another room to play over. The R8 gave me the opportunity to make a great clean recording with 48kHz and has the conversion great and akurat implemented.

Now I just hear the recording of yesterday and had to share my experiences with you.

The Zoom R8 - there is certainly better computer interface - but all other functions are great. I'm excited.

Too versatile?

Herve L., 02.09.2013
The Zoom R8 is a very complete product ... Can be too ?!

Let me explain :

It is already several products in one and as many associated features:
- a multitrack recorder (2 tracks in simultaneous recording, 8 in playback, 64 virtual)
- a programmable rhythm box (attention, each pattern occupies a track!)
A sequencer
- an audio interface
- a large library of customizable and customizable effects

The most irresistible enemy of the good (Montesquieu) if this product does almost everything, it does quite poorly qualitatively and at the price of ergonomics a complex (see the size of the manual) and not very intuitive .

The manufacture is also very light and fragile.

But it's a great all in one for who wants to be able to make their models freely for a limited investment.

In the end I prefer the Boss BR 800 which is unfortunately out of the catalog Thomann although the BR 800 could advantageously some functionality of the Zoom R8 that are missing:
- bouncing (grouping of tracks)
- comptdown (rhythm count)
- beatbox programmable (it is necessary to use the preloaded rhythms or to program it by way of the PC)
The sequencer

In short the choice can be delicate and complex and hybridization would be the ideal!

For a product not too expensive, complete, playful: Zoom R8
For a very ergonomic quality product: Boss BR 800

I have both and uses them both for different needs: the Zoom is the one I ride with me on vacation or on a trip.
