January 24, 2011

Music production system

In addition to eight-track playback and two-track simultaneous recording using SD memory cards, the R8 is a digital multi-track recorder, an audio interface, a control surface and pad sampler. The built-in drum sounds can be triggered using eight pads and three bank keys to assign sounds to each track and create loops. The R8 comes with a 2GB SD card and supports up to 32GB SDHC cards for a maximum of 100 track hours. Using SD media for recording not only makes the R8 lighter and more portable, it also ensures increased reliability with no concern for a crashing hard drive.
