love it. r24 does so much. it is quite easy to use. but has endless possibilities so taking my time to read the book also lots of tutorials on youtube. check them out.
GREAT UNIT DOSE EXACTLY WHAT I WANT EASY TO USE AND SET UP
Compact, stylish, full of useful features and seems to be well put together. If it lasts as long as it's predecessor (also a Zoom product ) it will be money well spent.
Seems to be very good so far, but it's going to take me a long time to use it enough to come to any firm conclusions. Not sure the free Cubase LE software is sufficiently good for my needs, but it does interface well with the R24. Just need to get it working with my software of choice now.
