    I'm looking for a Portable Multitrack Recorder which is base on SD Card recording media.
    R16 from Zoom seems cool and it do have a "plus" ,c'ld be the Post production controller...
    Any of you using this cool stuff? need your reviews while use on Logic and On Live Recording..

    Well, it sure as hell isn't "Pro Audio Gear"...try the "Budget Gear" section down the list...

    You won't find many people here use a multi-track or porta-studio set up. These generally appeal to the prosumer market or those who are computer challenged, for the $400.00 price tag you could buy something like a Presonus FP10 and get 8 good preamps and recording software that will dwarf the results you could possibly hope for with this rather limited piece of gear. At first glance it seems to offer a lot of options but you need to decide exactly what is you are trying to do because features you don't use are worthless. I think work flow is difficult having to scroll thru endless screens on a tiny viewing area to get things done. most of this style units have less than stellar recording quality though I have never used Zoom, but Tascam, Fostex and been disappointed with the results.
