The Very Best Multi Track Recorder in this price range!
4 October 2014
Summary: I bought the Zoom R24 a couple months ago, and i am truly glad that i did! It is super easy to use. I was recording only minutes after taking it out of the box. The sound quality is great! It has a ton of features and effects. It is by far the best multi-track recorder in it's price range! my only complaint would be the lcd display. it is a bit small, and hard to read at certain angles.
Excerpt: Using this for on-set recording of short & feature films.. or so I thought. (Yes I know there were better-suited options in that price-range but I also needed a unit that could record live music as well.) . Although it takes quite some time (and skill, and just plain dumb luck from trial & error) to learn how to set it up as an INTERFACE, this unit WILL work flawlessly with the included Cubase LE software.
Excerpt: Well i've had my Zoom R24 for 3 years, but never really got the chance to use it more than maybe 3 times, during which it seemed to work as advertised. HOWEVER, recently, i've been needing to use it as a workhorse to record audio during 3 short films i'm making. After the first day, I was flabbergasted to discover NONE of the audio recorded, even though I followed the instructions to a tee.
Summary: I haven't use it , well barely at all but now that I am researching to build my studio I find that the Cubase le5 program that came with it is obsolete. Seeming difficult to get started. Right now I am waiting to here back from Steinberg about Cubase.
