Product Description

Here's what Zoom have to say about the R12 MultiTrak 

The R12 MultiTrak is Zoom’s portable project studio for recording & editing music tracks. Built on the new features introduced with the R20, the R12 provides the very same smartphone-friendly experience offered by the onboard Touchscreen Colour LCD and it is fully integrated with a multi-channel mixer board and recorder with transport controls. The R12 features 2 XLR/jack combo inputs, 8 tracks, records directly to SDHC or SDXC cards up to 1TB and can be powered by an AC power Adapter, 4 AA Batteries or a USB power bank.

Mr Dennis Sanders8th Jan 2023

As with my previous Zoom products does exactly what it says on the tin. Great audio quality, surprisingly solid and funky built-in drum tracks and sparkly FM synth as a bonus. Needed something small and compact to supplement my ancient Boss BR 600 and this is excellent.
