Zoom R24/R8 Tutorial219
Learning how to take your new Zoom R24 or R8 to the next level has never been easier thanks to the official Zoom R24 / R8 Combo DVD Video Tutorial.
Zoom took the incredibly successful R16 and turbocharged it with world class production tools like a drum machine and sampler...and added 8 more tracks too! With 24 tracks and 8 track simultaneous record, this may be the only piece of recording gear you need.
Special Notes section on the R8
Not only is it a rock solid stand alone multitrack recorder, it's also a 24 bit 96K high quality I/O audio interface and control surface so you can remotely start/stop and control your faders on your favorite audio application like the included Cubase Le.
Zoom also recently released the R8, the little brother to the R24. This DVD covers the operation of both models.
This comprehensive training DVD taught by David Wills (Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Phil Collins and Diana Ross) goes over every detail of your new Zoom R24 and R8 with over 2 and a half hours of up close personal instruction.

Excellent! David is the best at explaining products and zeroing in on the salient features.
Top notch presentation from someone who really knows this stuff; I believe this would be Extremely helpful in deciding to purchase the Zoom, and in navigating through said if you do purchase it....
I am a fairly new to recording. Voice is all I am recording with backing music. I have been fighting DAWs ( 3 different ones) and I needed my hands on knobs and faders. David not only got me going with the Zoom R24 which I was having trouble with but he also taught me some recording techniques as well. I hope to buy the How To Record DVD sometime. I highly recommend the Zoom R24 DVD. I recorded a very good vocal the second try after watching David's teachings. I watched it 3 times to get the most from it.
After seeing several of his other videos and seeing he had one for this device with a 2hr. run time, I was like really? I just had to get it. Again, the professor doesn't leave you hanging anywhere. David spent two hrs. because that's what it took to cover everything which he did to the point with no fluff whatsoever. What to do and why you're doing it. He's covering room prep, microphone characteristics and effects; everything you need here. I thought I knew something about this recorder, now I feel I know everything and my bandmates plus everyone else are wowed at the improvements in the recordings. Thanks David!!! Big bargain here.
I can recomend this DVD to everybody who, like me, sat in front of the R24 with the cryptic manual trying to understand how the it works. I am no newbie to homerecording in general. But the R24 is so different from everything knew before, I just couldn't get it. And the manual IS CRAP to start with!! David Wills manages to get the spirit of the R24 and its main functions to the customer. Right after watching the DVD I was able to to sit down in front of the device and push the right buttons and continue from there. Now the manual started to make sense. Because with the background from the DVD I knew what they where talking about. I don't know why the people at ZOOM don't bundle one of these DVDs with each device. It would be very helpful to a lot of buyers. Resuming: -Did I find it useful: yes. -Do I recommend it: yes. -Am I related to the David Wills and his company? Nope. I live in Europe and I only knew about him through the "Zoom Gear and Home Recording Forum".
