Mobile Recording with Zoom R12 MultiTrak (+Free Download)

Published 3:02 am on Monday 10th October 2022 by Beat Magazine

The 2.4-inch small full-color LCD touchscreen is another central element with the transport fields. For recording, there are two XLR jack inputs, to which condenser microphones can also be connected thanks to phantom power. Channel 1 is even suitable as an instrument input. There is a 3-band EQ for all channels, and channels 1 and 2 also have a compressor. In addition, there are two mono jack outputs, the headphone jack and a USB-C port. In the rhythm section, there are 150 pre-installed drum loops for quite different patterns to choose from. Furthermore, there is an internal FM synthesizer. The built-in effects for reverb, chorus and delay have their own send and return fader. Power can be supplied for five hours via four AA batteries, alternatively via an optional AC adapter or via USB battery.

Price and availability:

Zoom will sell the R12 MultiTrak during the fourth quarter of 2022 for 391.51 Euros.
