Product Overview

The R24 is a complete, compact and powerful portable music creation system with four key functions to accelerate your creativity.
A 24-track recorder, an audio interface with eight ins and two outs, a DAW control surface compatible with Mackie Control, and a drum machine/sampler with pads and a loop sequencer.

Record 8 tracks simultaneously with 24 track playback

The R24's simultaneous 8-track recording capability allows you to capture live band performances, record drum kits with multiple mics and make other recordings of multiple sound sources. Play back up to 24 tracks of 16/24-bit and 44.1/48-kHz sampling rate WAV format files. You can use the UNDO/REDO functions to cancel the last recording operation and restore the previous state. When you complete a song, you can mix it down and save a stereo mix for each project in the R24

Audio Interface with 8-in / 2-out capabillity

The R24 can function as an audio interface, enabling direct input of sounds to a computer. Support for 24-bit/96-kHz encoding ensures high-quality sound. Eight input channels and two output channels can be used simultaneously. The internal DSP effects of the R24 can also be used when the sampling rate is 44.1 kHz. A dedicated knob lets you adjust the balance between the DAW playback sound and the direct input sound when monitoring

Control Surface for all major DAW functions

The R24 can be used as a control surface for DAW transport functions (play, record, stop) and mixing operations. You can easily move multiple faders at the same time, which is very difficult to do with a mouse! You can also assign the five function keys to various DAW software commands. Cubase, Logic, Sonar and other major DAW applications are supported in Mackie Control emulation mode

24 Voice sampler with 8 pads and 3 banks

The built-in sampler functions allow you to use audio files on any tracks as loops. Play the pads in real-time and create performance for an entire track by combining loops. Use the display of the audio waveform for visual confirmation when setting loop intervals. Use time-stretching to change the tempo of a file without changing its pitch, and trim unneeded parts of loops. The sampler and recorder can also be used together seamlessly, allowing you to also record instrument performances while playing back loops on other tracks

Create your own beats with the powerful rhythm machine

The R24 has a powerful drum machine with 10 types of drum kits that use linear PCM samples. With the touch sensitive drum pads, you can program your own original beats and save up to 511 of them. The rhythm patterns that you create can be used just like the audio loops. You can trigger patterns with the pads and use them in the unit's sequencer to arrange songs. The 472 preset patterns include intros, fills, endings and other phrase variations

Supports SDHC cards up to 32GB

Because the R24 utilizes compact and readily available SD and SDHC memory cards as its recording media, there is no motor that can cause noise as with tape or discs. And you never need to worry about problems caused by external vibrations that can crash hard drives

Versatile inputs for guitars, mic and line sources

Its eight combination mic/line input jacks can handle mics or line-level signals. Phantom power is provided on channels 5 and 6 for use with condenser mics, and the Hi-Z switch for channel 1 accommodates a guitar or bass. The R24 is ready for any kind of input source.

Tap the tempo using the footswitch

Use the Tap Tempo feature to set the tempo in real-time to the rhythm of a song as you play guitar. You can also use it to for delay times and modulation effect frequencies

Use the master track for your final mix

A dedicated master track lets you do the final mixdown right on the R24 without a separate master recorder. With sequence play, several projects can be mastered together and played automatically. And you can create playlists for finished songs in any order.

150 DSP effects including guitar amp simulations

The R24 comes preprogrammed with 150 types of digital effects for recording, mixing, and mastering. The insert effect has seven modules with algorithms optimized for guitar, bass and vocals. In addition, two send/return effects are also available, so that you can use up to three effects simultaneously. The R24 also comes with models of 18 different guitar amps such as Fender, Marshall, Vox and Mesa Boogie, and 6 bass amps such as Ampeg, Bassman and Hartke. 
A compressor and equalizer effect that handles 8 channels simultaneously provides further flexibility.

Built in tuner and metronome

The R24's built-in tuner is great for quickly tuning an instrument or checking the pitch of vocals. During recording, the metronome provides a click track for your drummer and is also handy for practice. The metronome sound can be sent to the headphones, letting you use a previously recorded backing track on stage during a performance

Locate function makes editing easy

Set up to 100 marker points and directly locate them whenever you want. Other convenient functions for editing include A-B repeat playback and auto punch-in/out, making it easy to re-track part of the recording

Power options

The R24 can be powered from the supplied AC adapter or six AA/LR6 batteries. A set of batteries will last for about four and a half hours, and because they are standard batteries, changing them is always easy and convenient. The audio interface and control surface functions can also be operated on USB bus power, providing another power option

USB host capability for connecting USB memory

Because the R24 has a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed compatible port, file transfer to a computer is quick and painless. Computer-based tasks such as editing with DAW software, burning your original CDs and importing WAV files are integrated smoothly into your workflow
