We were looking to purchase an electronic drum kit for our son. We visited PMT back in September to have a look at the range of items they had. While there an assistant came to offer help and advice on the different sets that were available. My son was also allowed to try them out too. After choosing one he liked we went away to research as it was intended for a Christmas present. On looking the item up it showed that for the same money you could get extra items. We then returned and asked if they would price match as we believe in trying to support the local business, but ultimately things do come down to price and value. To our delight they were happy to price match, and as a result we even upgraded. The service from viewing to purchasing was really good, as these musical instruments are not cheap and you need good honest advice when purchasing. Would totally recommend this company.

Overview

The Zoom R8 is a portable music-production unit that takes the design features of Zoom's R24 and puts them in a more compact, manageable size. Like the R24, the R8 features four production tools, 8-track playback, and 2-track simultaneous recording using SD memory cards. The R8 is a digital multi-track recorder, an audio interface, a control surface, and a pad sampler. Small enough to fit into a guitar case or gig bag, the R8 delivers flexible and portable multi-track recording solutions.



With a sampler function that consists of 24 built-in voices, the R8’s built-in drum sounds can be triggered using 8 pads and 3 bank keys to assign sounds to each track and create loops. In addition, you can use the unit’s drum machine to create original backing beats or output a metronome for tempo control.



The R8 comes with a 2 GB SD card and supports up to 32 GB SDHC cards, for a maximum of 100 track hours. According to Zoom, 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. Using the unit's USB audio interface, you can take your R8 into your studio and record additional tracks. When you’re ready to mix, use the R8’s control surface capabilities to manage each function of your choice of DAW software. The R8 additionally offers 150 pro-quality guitar and studio effects to further enhance your recordings.
