User-Friendly Multitrack Recorder

With an incredibly intuitive 4.3-inch colour LCD touchscreen, the R20 makes it easier than ever before to track, edit and mix your songs. Navigating your way through the controls is as simple as dragging, dropping, pinching and swiping, providing a tactile experience that supports creatives in their musical freedom. Editing on the R20 adopts a similar approach. Whilst users can cut, copy, combine and loop their audio using the screen, the colour-coded faders and gain dials minimise mistakes by ensuring you’re always adjusting the correct channel.

Professional Audio Features

With the best preamps and noise floor of any Zoom multitrack recorder, the R20 boasts 6 XLR inputs, 2 combo inputs and 16 tracks of recording. This is perfect for all kinds of musicians, whether you’re a singer-songwriter or part of a large band. Reinforcing the R20 as the perfect choice for bands is the ability to import and playback standard MIDI files. Users can throw in the bass lines, melodies, piano parts and more to layer up their sounds and take them to the next level. And, with a dedicated headphone jack for monitoring while recording and outputs for mixing on your favourite monitors, users can really personalise their setups to suit their own workflow.

Pre-Loaded with Creative Effects

Not only is the R20 an incredibly intuitive and tactile device for controlling audio recording, but it also benefits from a whole host of creative effects to further simplify the production process. 30 different genres, 150 rhythm patterns and a variety of song form variations come pre-loaded on the R20 to give musicians the versatility they need. Once recorded, tracks can also be polished using the EQ, compression and other professional tools including 18 built-in synth sounds for sonic texture.

Using the optional Zoom BTA-1 Bluetooth Adaptor and dedicated app, the R20 can be controlled wirelessly from an iOS device. Here, VoiceOver and VoiceOver Gestures can be enabled to control the R20 with voice commands alone, making great audio tech more accessible for all.

If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan).
