The HD16CD from Zoom combines high-quality multitrack recording with easy-to-use control surface features for an all-in-one solution that's completely compatible with your DAW. The HD16CD records 16-bit/44.1kHz WAV files to the 80GB internal hard drive, providing about 240 hours of recording in mono mode. Each of the 16 tracks has 10 virtual tracks. On-board editing functions let you correct your audio, which can then be bounced to a master track and burned to a CD using the built-in CD-R/RW drive.

The HD16CD has eight XLR/TRS combo jack inputs, MIDI in and out connectors, a stereo RCA main output, a S/PDIF optical digital output, and a high-speed USB 2.0 port so you can connect the system to your Mac or PC. It has 14 faders and several other easy-to-use controls for mixing and editing. A drum and bass machine has plenty of preprogrammed material to provide you with fantastic backup in a variety of genres. You also have access to 130 effect types and 370 DSP patches so you can fully customize your sound.

Powerful Cubase LE software is provided that you can install on your computer for even more recording and editing options. The best part is that the HD16CD can stay connected to your computer and act as the control surface for the software, giving you hard controls for adjusting EQ, fading, mixing, and more. You can also use the MIDI time code and MIDI clock capabilities to sync your audio with a DAW or an external sequencer or recorder.
