Zoom R4 Multitrak Portable Multi-Track Recorder Overview
The R4 - The Little Recorder for Big Ideas
Designed By Musicians
All our engineers are musicians who crafted the R4 to unleash the potential of creators exploring grand musical visions. Featuring a unique dedicated ‘bounce track’ and 32-bit float recording, the R4 is an ideal companion for capturing your most ambitious compositions.
Record. Bounce. Repeat.
With the R4, record up to four tracks, mix them, and seamlessly bounce to the dedicated ‘bounce track,’ liberating additional tracks for layering.
You can opt for a ‘quick’ bounce or mix and bounce in real time. Moreover, the R4 allows you to ‘undo’ your last bounce if you’re unsatisfied with the results.
32-Bit Float Recording
Capture flawless audio with every take effortlessly, without worrying about setting gain levels.
Equipped with 2 XLR/TS combo inputs boasting legendary Zoom preamps, the R4 accommodates microphones, instruments, keyboards, and more.
Each track offers a 3-band EQ, pan, echo, and reverb to refine your mix. Input A also supports effects like amp simulations, delays, distortions, and more.
The R4 boasts a high-quality built-in microphone, perfect for acoustic guitars, vocals, or quick reference recordings.
Much More Than A Metronome
Explore a rhythm section preloaded with over 80 diverse drum patterns spanning genres like rock, hip hop, funk, heavy metal, and beyond.
Every Take Is Saved
Tracks you record are automatically saved individually, even after being bounced.
Control and Create
Featuring a fader for each track and dedicated hardware buttons for commonly used functions, the R4 ensures an intuitive recording experience without deep menu navigation.
Powered For Your Ideas
The R4 can be powered by 4 AA batteries or through its USB-C port.
