The R24 recorder adds a sampler/drum machine, eight additional recording tracks and six channels of phantom power to its R16. It combines four production tools in one device and is a digital multi-track recorder with 24-track playback and 8-track simultaneous recording, an audio interface, a control surface and a drum pad sampler. The new sampler function consists of 24 built-in voices that can be triggered using eight pads and three bank keys to assign sounds to each track and create loops. It records on SD memory cards and supports cards up to 32GB for more than 100 track hours of recording. In addition, the R24's USB audio interface allows users to record tracks to any Mac or PC and utilize the system's control surface capabilities to manage the functions of most DAW software programs, most notably the included Cubase LE 5.
