Zoom R12 front

Zoom introduces the new R12 MultiTrak. The R12 is made for musicians who live to make music. And they want the freedom to make music wherever they go. Compact and mobile, you can record, edit, and mix songs without a computer. Use the R12’s full-color LCD touchscreen to easily cut, copy, loop, and edit your tracks.

The R12 has super-clean preamps, and you’ll love the way they sound. With two XLR/TRS inputs, and 8 tracks of audio, the R12 is perfect for recording everything from demos to release-ready songs. The R12 includes a send effects channel offering reverb, chorus and delay with a dedicated effects return fader. For advanced tones, you can use presets and effects from Zooms’ Guitar Lab. The R12 also has pan and a 3-channel EQ for each track and a compressor on inputs 1 and 2.

Use Sequence Play to create a playlist of your projects. Then use them as backing tracks, whether you’re playing live or rehearsing a set. With 150 preloaded drum loops in a variety of patterns and genres, the R12 provides a versatile rhythm section for any project. Add additional audio samples by importing files into your R12 via Micro SD card or USB thumb drive.

The R12 provides up to 5 hours on four AA batteries allowing you to bring your production anywhere. Additionally, you can power the R12 with the optional AD-17 adapter, or a USB battery. The R12 includes an 1/8” stereo headphone jack as well as dedicated ¼” monitor outputs. Musicians can also plug in their iOS devices to use the optional R12 Control App. The R12 Control App available in late 2022.

Use the R12 as a stereo audio interface with your favorite DAW or streaming platform, via USB-C. As a control surface, the transport controls and faders make it easy to adjust and control your software during production. Connect microphones, instruments or line level devices like keyboards, mixing boards and more. Input 1 on the R12 has a Hi-Z switch, allowing you to plug your guitar directly into the recorder. Both inputs on the R12 offer 48V Phantom Power for condenser microphones.

Activate the fully customizable click track with the press of a button. Use the click balance section to blend the metronome with your playback audio and route to your headphones and/or the main outputs. The R12 has 18 FM synth instruments built in that can be played by plugging in a MIDI keyboard via USB-C or programmed using the touchscreen.
