Key Info

With a unique dedicated ‘bounce track’ and 32-bit float recording, the R4 is perfect for capturing your most ambitious compositions.

Record. Bounce. Repeat.

With the R4, you can record up to four tracks, mix and then bounce them to the dedicated ‘bounce track.’ This lets you free up additional tracks to keep adding layers. You can choose to do a ‘quick’ bounce or mix and bounce in real time. The R4 also allows you to ‘undo’ your last bounce, if you’re not satisfied with the results.

32-Bit Float Recording The R4 captures perfect audio with every take, without the need to set gain.

Combo Inputs The R4 has 2 XLR/TS combo inputs with legendary Zoom preamps. You can plug in microphones, instruments, keyboards, and more.

Track Effects Each track features a 3-band EQ, pan, echo, and reverb to refine your mix.

Input Effects Apply effects to input A such as amp simulations, delays, distortions and more.

Built-In Microphone The R4 features a high-quality built-in microphone, perfect for acoustic guitars, vocals, or capturing a quick reference recording.

Much More Than A Metronome The R4 has a rhythm section preloaded with over 80 different drum patterns to play along with featuring genres such as rock, hip hop, funk, heavy metal, and more.

Every Take Is Saved Tracks that you record are automatically saved individually, even after they have been bounced.

Control and Create With a fader for each track and dedicated hardware buttons for the most used functions, you won’t need to menu dive to record your music.

Powered For Your Ideas The R4 can be powered by 4 AA Batteries, or through its USB-C port.
