What we say:

At A Glance:

The Zoom R8 is a portable hard disc multitrack recorder with an outstanding set of features. Bringing the concept of the 4-track machine into the 21st century by adding built-in microphones, guitar tuner, effects, sampling and 2 TRS/XLR combi inputs with 8 tracks of playback, plus the ability to run on batteries, the R8 completely blows what was previously possible with a standalone recorder out of the water.

Features We Love:

Inputs

R8 features 2 combination inputs that are suitable with XLR microphones and instrument jacks. Phantom power is available on both inputs for use with condenser microphones, while channel 1 can be switched to a Hi-Z input for use with guitars.

Stereo Microphones

The high-quality stereo microphones mean you're ready to record even without a mic plugged in. This is great for capturing ideas when they appear in the moment.

Audio Interface

In addition to recording direct to SD card, R8 also works as an 2-in/2-out audio interface. Offering you high-quality 24-bit/96kHz audio into your favourite DAW.

Recording on the Go

R8 has the ability to run on 4 AA batteries for true portable recording.

Highlights:

  • An excellent stand-alone production tool
  • Built-in sampling and drum machine makes creating songs an easy process
  • Works as USB audio interface
  • Built-in microphones and battery power lets you record literally anywhere

Michael S. - 31/10/2020

Works great but crashes occasionally

John C. - 10/10/2020

Bought to replace an H4. Much better user interface. Really quick to set up and start projects. Love it.

top quality product at a very good price

G.H. - 16/2/2015

Great piece of kit. Was up and running and laying down tracks within 30 minutes and that's for someone who has only ever used a potrastudio about 10 years ago!!

N.G. - 25/3/2014

good beginners kit, vey simple to use, didn't even need the instructions! not quite a Tascam but near enough, and half the price. Not had it for long but on first impressions I wouldn't bother with the free Cubase and instead download audacity(free)

K.C. - 16/1/2014

i havent used the item as its for xmas present but delivery was fast.

N.M. - 4/12/2013

Still playing around with the items,but am happy.

G.W. - 2/12/2013

great pedal board

C.B. - 2/10/2013

Zoom R8 is a fabulous piece of kit. The range of features is astounding for something so small and so cheap. I bought it as a multi-track recorder, which it does excellently. I'm pleased to report that the bonus features are surprisingly good too: the built-in microphones are very good, the drum machine is not bad, most of the guitar effects are impressive and even the reverb effects are pretty decent. It's well-built and easy to use (inevitably, some functions are fiddly, but that's the price of a compact unit - you can only fit a limited number of controls in the available space). Even the instruction manual is refreshingly clear. <br/> <br/>Overall, I can't recommend the R8 highly enough.

A.P. - 19/1/2013

Rapid delivery, and was pleased with the ability to track product.

K.B. - 24/10/2012
