An intuitive, all-in-one tabletop solution for recording, editing, and mixing music, the Zoom R20 Portable Multitrack Recorder merges a DAW-inspired touchscreen interface, color-coded tactile controls, and up to 16 total tracks so that solo artists and full bands alike can produce songs and let their creativity flow without relying on a computer. If a DAW-based workflow is needed, the R20 can serve as an 8x4 USB audio interface for virtually any audio production software.

The R20 is part recording console, part virtual instrument, and part effects unit; it comes loaded with eight preamps, channel strips, drum loops, synth sounds, and digital processing such as compression, EQ, gating, and more. Multiple mics, an electric guitar, headphones, speakers, and even a MIDI keyboard can be hooked up to the R20, making it a capable centerpiece for any home studio or mobile production rig.

Multitracking Made Easy
Equipped with a DAW-inspired touchscreen interface that feels instantly familiar, the R20 helps you focus on being creative by making it exceedingly easy to track, edit, and mix your songs.

Just a Gesture Away
Navigate and edit with ease, via the R20's 4.3" color LCD touchscreen interface. Drag and drop, pinch, swipe, and more.
Color-Coded for Clarity
Color-coded faders, gain dials, and touchscreen track regions improve your workflow and ensure that you are always adjusting the correct channel.
Put the Pieces Together
Cut, copy, combine, and loop. The R20's interface provides intuitive editing, so you'll immediately feel at home.
