Zoom releases the first digital recorder with 16-track playback and 8-track recording

Hauppauge, NY (June 28, 2009) -- Zoom is pleased to announce the release of their newest creation the R16--the first digital recorder with 16-track playback and 8-track simultaneous recording with Secure Digital (SD) memory. 

The R16 is three production tools in one device: a multi-track recorder, an audio interface and a control surface, designed to help provide studio-quality recordings. Additionally, the R16 runs on only 6 AA batteries, excellent for multi-track portability.

With the R16, recording artists, songwriters, sound engineers and film sound professionals alike can record up to 32 GBs on an SD card. The SD recording makes file transferring easy, and it also makes the R16 significantly lighter. SD recording also avoids the pitfalls of a potential crashing hard drive because it allows for up to 100 track hours of recording using all 16 tracks.
