8-track recorder, 24-track playback, audio interface, controller, sampler, and drum machine in one.

Zoom takes its revolutionary R16 and turbocharges it with a sampler and drum machine, 8 additional recording tracks and 6 channels of phantom-power on the all-new R24. The R24 combines 4 production tools into one incredibly versatile device. In addition to 24-track playback and 8-track simultaneous recording using SD memory cards, the R24 is a digital multitrack recorder, an audio interface, a control surface and a pad sampler.

The R24's new sampler function consists of 24 built-in voices that can be triggered using 8 pads and 3 bank keys to assign sounds to each track and create loops. Also, you can use the unit's drum machine and its 400 rhythm patterns to create original backing beats, or simply output a metronome for tempo control. More than ever before, you have all the tools necessary to create studio-quality recordings anywhere.

For recording, the R24 comes with a 2GB SD card. It supports up to 32GB SDHC cards for a maximum of 100 track hours. The flexibility of SD recording not only makes the R24 lighter and more portable, it also ensures increased reliability with no concern for a crashing hard drive. Back up your project on a USB memory stick. Or dedicate an SD card to each recording session.

Take your R24 into your studio and record additional tracks using its USB audio interface. Then when you're ready to mix, use the R24's control surface capabilities to manage each function of your favorite DAW software.

Incorporate any of the 100+ built-in studio effects to enhance your recording and use the pro-quality mastering effects to complete that studio sound. You can even connect 2 R24s via USB for synchronized operation and 16 tracks of simultaneous recording.

With the new Zoom R24, versatility, control and comprehensive features come together in a single device that puts everything you need for professional music production right at your fingertips.

  • a little tricky,but fun!

    As reviewed by BRAD TAYLOR on 11/13/2011

    I already have a boss 1600 and a tascam neo which are amazing but I had some money to play with which is not often and I had seen many good reviews on this so I got a great deal at GC.I ordered the dvd owners manual after looking at the supplied text manual for 1 minute, Its a massive flow chart that I dont want to deal with. I recorded a couple songs on acoustic guitar using the built in mics and I must say they came out very good! I have 3 bluebird mics in my home studio and they would have done better but not much better! the drum sounds in the rhythm mode are not the greatest but again not that bad!the supplied usb drum loops from big fish are very good.I played with the sampler briefly and it could be very useful for someone who does that style hip hop etc. I didnt do any multi-tracking yet Im waiting for the dvd. I'll do another review in a few weeks to give an update on this interesting unit.

  • Very quiet operation,Plenty of inputs

    As reviewed by david cochran on 3/13/2013

    I own two Zoom recorders for linking together .The R24 and an R16.I only give the r24 a 4 star rating due to its build quality,which is fragile,I have really grown to admire what this company can do w/ just some of the compressors and preamp effects in this machine.I took some serious time to get into deep editing and I never did not come up w/ something that was unusable.I have good mics that I use w/ this,as well as an average SM 57,they all work well in this machine.It has a good way to boost,or reduce a signal to the level you need to be at and still be clean.I have used the R24 as my control surface w/great success and I must point out that you must be informed on your device setup to get this to work.This is where the manual fails on information to the user.Make sure that all MIDI connections are going to the R24,then your drivers in the multitrack link (Cubase,that is)then your good to go.Fader and Transport work very well.I use this in conjunction w/ my Focusrite DSP24 and they are a good pair.This is a very versatile and ,practical tool for producing music that does not get in the way creatively,I went from using 1 inch tape to this format literally overnight and I have not looked back,I love my Otari mx70 but have you seen the price on replacing just the pinch roller ? Not in my budget,this was a great solution all way around and I had happy clients,That is what matters at the end of the day.

  • Zoom R 24 a supercharged mulipurpose recorder, sampler, interface, controler.

    As reviewed by Kerry Buell on 9/25/2012

    This is my first digital recorder. There is no comparison to the old school tape. Tape sound is a little better but at a thousand dollars a track that is to be expected. I dont think there is that much diference and the plus's for a home recording, portable digital recorder far outweght the nailed to the floor tape hassle and cost. There is a learning curve but I had my first song out in a day finding my way around was a breeze with the Manual. I did watch a R 8 youtube to figure out the drum sequncer. Love the size and portability. Runs off aa batiries and I can use four diferent mic choises to record nature sounds in stereo for dubbing over video. It is great to take over to my buddies and record what ever instruments we are playing. No more how did that piece go. I just pull out the lap top and bring it up, dates and a good name and number system makes this Quick. A person could use flash or usb thumb drives to store takes it is a cheaper buy as you need and cheaper than a laptop. If were on the move and start a impromptu I use the onboard condenser mics to save ideas. This is a great little unit and has mutple recording applications. I do video too so useing four diferent mics is a great thing I can pick my favorite take on one set of mics or use a little of all or any combanation to get a perfect reproduction of a water fall or thunder. crickets ext... I just put it in my padded day pack with mics, cables a couple stands and I am off to record for the day no problem. 32 gb flash card and extra batteries, a usb thumb drive or two to help keep sets seperate. I thought I had it all figured out then heard of pro audios tutorial and bought it. Glad I did because I learned a lot more it was way worth the price. Dont let anybody talk you out of taking a class or buying a tutorial the more Knowledge you learn about the R 24 the more you get out of it. Now that I have used it for six mounths and used the tutorial a dozen times I can give it five stars and the drum sampler that was so so now sounds exellent because I learned how to fully use the tools and effets. You can loop the r24 with another or if you dont need two drum samplers you can use the R 16 as slave and have sixteen live mic inputs but eight is all I need and 24 track play back. With makie interface to operate sliders and controls on the computer daw sreen make finale mix down in your compatible DAW a breeze. More hands on control less mouse work That was just one place the video came in handy. I tkink they should give the tutoial Video out with the R 24. This recorder get five stars+ from me. Because it is portable I got the extended warrenty with accident coverage.
