Why We Love This Product!

Stick a Recording Studio in Your Gig Bag!

Looking for a Swiss army knife recording tool? Check out the Zoom R8. It's hard to say exactly what the R8 is - this bad boy can do everything! First off, the R8's an excellent standalone SD card recorder. It's got two XLR/TRS combo inputs and 8-track playback, plus a wicked 24-voice pad sampler. And since the R8 can use up to 32GB SDHC cards, you get tons of recording time, even at 24-bit/96kHz. But wait, there's more. The R8 is also a USB interface, so you can hook it right up to your DAW and record that way. And while you're at it, you can even use the Zoom R8's sliders and transport as a control surface. Recorder, interface, sampler, control surface... man, this baby does it all!

Love Letters

‘‘ GearNuts was fabulous. My daughter's Casio keyboard quit working and were desperate to find a fix. GearNuts.com delivered! We were able to order the exact AC Power Adapter we needed and received it in no time. Thanks to GearNuts.com mu daughter is back on the keyboard! ’’ – Cheryl Dingwell-Keckritz

Send us your love letter

Cheryl... Around here, none of us wear power ties, and power lunches are few and far between. But when the Power Rangers are unavailable, and PowerBall just isn't bringing the money home like you hoped it would, it's great to remember that the powerful GearNuts.com store is here for all your power adapter needs!
