I got my Zoom R24 today. We use the R16 in the rehearsal room and it's served us fantasticly! Now I got the R24 for my own home recording, for 15 years I've tried to convince myself computers are the best. (which they probably are but maybe not for "old school"-me)

The cool thing with this machine wasn't that it's got 24 channels, won't use them, but it comes with a drum machine. Makes it useable for home recording and song writing.

I know, computers can do it but I've felt with the band that the R16 was so easy and quick to operate where a computer always will fumble sooner or later, takes time to start, sometimes gets occupied with some background task and steals CPU for a second etc etc.
Maybe something for my likes that find computers a bit tideous to work with wink.gif

Not a toy, a tool Will have fun with it though biggrin.gif

Congratulations! I totally understand you - if I had a choice I would definitely use unit like this for home recording/band practice recording etc. I like it hardware and that drum machine would be really useful for bass practice too wink.gif

Looks pretty spiff wink.gif I did hear that there were some lag issues on the 16 but I gather a firmware update took care of that? I'm using a Tascam M-164UF (digital mixer/usb connection) in my project studio and have really loved it. I record via garage band or Logic but I can see how in a live room, having a computer might just slow things down. You really just want to hit RECORD and go.

I have recorded multiple tracks at once using LOGIC but rarely need to go above 4 at a time as I don't track drums here. Let us know how this unit does in the field. I"m curious about it. Works as a DAW controller too.
