The Great Clearout continues and She Who Must Be Obeyed has said that it's time to list the next item...
I bought this new about five or six years ago. It’s in mint condition, full working order and comes boxed with the original power supply, software disk and instructions plus a 16GB SD card (not the 1GB card that is shown on the packaging).
I mainly used this as an Audio Interface and Control Surface (Sonar X1) and, because it was sat on the desk (and because I don’t get round with the Hoover as often as I should), I had a custom cover made for it to keep the dust off (and stop it getting onto the sliders, etc). I’m including this plus a dedicated Zoom R16/R24 soft case (normally £25.00) which is also in excellent condition.
I also used this occasionally as a portable recorder to record rehearsals of new numbers. The eight separate inputs meant I could use this as a DI and Mixer for all the instruments and send a stereo line feed out to the PA. Record the new song at rehearsal, ten minutes to mix down different versions for each of us (no guitar, no vox, no bass, etc) and we could all rehearse our own parts at home during the week. Simples!
I even used it to record the occasional gig and the built-in mics are really impressive – very similar performance to the Zoom handheld recorders we also used on occasion.
Now that I’ve relocated and left the band, I don’t need it for recording purposes and I’ve upgraded all of my home recording stuff so this is now surplus to requirements. It’s a brilliant bit of kit that will handle pretty much any job.
It’s available for collection in North-East Lincolnshire or I am happy to post within the UK for £10.00. Please get in touch to discuss other options.
Thanks for looking – any questions, please drop me a note.
Details are below but first, here's some pictures;
Here's what a quick Google search turned up about the Zoom R24...
“The R24 can function as an audio interface supporting 8 inputs and 2 outputs, enabling direct input of sounds to a computer. Support for 24-bit/96-kHz encoding ensures high-quality sound and 8 inputs and 2 outputs can be used simultaneously. The internal DSP effects can be used when the sampling rate is 44.1 kHz. A dedicated knob lets you adjust the balance between the DAW playback sound and the direct input sound when monitoring.
Control surface functions for most DAW software
The R24 can be used as a control surface for DAW transport functions (play, record, stop) and mixing operations. You can easily move multiple faders at the same time, which is very difficult to do with a mouse! You can also assign the five function keys to various DAW software commands. Cubase, Logic, Sonar and other major DAW applications are supported in Mackie Control emulation mode.
24-voice sampler with 8 pads and 3 banks
The built-in sampler functions allow you to use audio files on any tracks as loops. Play the pads in real-time and create performance for an entire track by combining loops. Use the display of the audio waveform for visual confirmation when setting loop intervals. Use time-stretching to change the tempo of a file without changing its pitch, and trim unneeded parts of loops. The sampler and recorder can be used together seamlessly, allowing you to record instrument performances while playing back loops on other tracks.
Create your own beats with the powerful rhythm machine
The R24 has a powerful drum machine with 10 types of drum kits that use linear PCM samples. With the touch sensitive drum pads, you can program your own original beats and save up to 511 of them. The rhythm patterns that you create can be used just like the audio loops. You can trigger patterns with the pads and use them in the unit's sequencer to arrange songs. The 472 preset patterns include intros, fills, endings and other phrase variations.
(1) : Synchronization precision is accurate to about 1 to 2 msec. (2) : When using an R16 as the second unit, 16 tracks of simultaneous recording and 40 tracks of simultaneous playback are possible.
Guitar amp modeling and other DSP effects total 150 types
The DSP effects, which include 150 types and 390 patches, can be used for recording, mixing and mastering. Three types of effects - the insert effect and the two send-return effects - can all be used at the same time. You can achieve a powerful amp sound just by connecting a guitar or bass directly to the R24 and using one of the 18 types of guitar amp models or 6 types of bass amp models that have been brought straight from our best-selling G2nu effects unit. You can also use the 8xCOMP EQ effect, which lets you apply compression and EQ to 8 channels simultaneously.
Locate functions make editing easier
Set up to 100 markers and directly move to them whenever you want. Other convenient editing functions include A-B repeat playback of a designated interval and auto punch-in and punch-out.
Versatile inputs for guitars, mics and line sources
The R24 can handle a variety of input sources. The unit is equipped with 8 input jacks that accept both XLR and standard phone connectors, including 6 that can supply phantom power, allowing the use of multiple condenser microphones for serious multi-mic recording. Use the channel with a Hi-Z switch to input electric guitars, basses and other high impedance instruments.
Supports SDHC cards with capacities of up to 32GB
The R24 uses compact and readily-available SD and SDHC memory cards as recording media. Unlike tape and disc recorders, this unit has no motor, making it more resistant to external vibrations and eliminating concerns about mechanical noise.
USB 2.0 Hi-Speed for fast file transfer
The R24 USB 2.0 Hi-Speed port allows WAV files recorded by the R24 to be transferred to a computer quickly and easily. Computer-based tasks, such as editing audio with DAW software, creating original CDs and importing WAV files, can be integrated into your music production.
USB host port for connecting USB memory
USB flash drive or large-capacity external hard disk drive can be plugged into the R24's USB host port. This lets you distribute recordings to band members after a rehearsal and make backups of recordings without a computer.

Zoom B3 In great condition.
Used while I was on cruise ships and was amazing as a all rounder.
can cover a lot of different sounds that would cost a lot of money in pedal board form, and with a built in tuner it has everything you need.
Selling simply as I've decided to make a pedal board.
