The sound alone is the reason to buy. Would be better if it recorded at 24/96, if it had pan knobs, fx knobs, eq knobs, and MIDI. Other than that, a great unit.

All is great until the gain knobs start getting scratchy and ruin recordings after a couple of months. No RMA when it happens after warranty. Third Zoom product to let me down!

I did a LOT of research on different machines before getting this. There is a learning curve, but play with it and have fun, easy to setup and record. Learn the sequencer and you'll be able to get drums, bass, guitar tracks etc done for a whole song. I especially like the fact that I can play guitar riffs over and over or try different things/sounds/attack etc, select the best part, trim the rest, this becomes the loop. Saving to SD cards is quick, easy, reliable and transferrable. The software driver for windows 8 hasn't been released yet (Jan 2013), but ok up to windows 7 as an interface and controller. However the SD cardreader function works with windows 8. I can record in the R24 then transfer the files into the PC, I also have the main outs plugged into the LINE-IN on the computer and works like a charm.

I have a M Box and software that i have been using for some time for home recording. works fine but was looking for a portable solution and the guys at LM suggested the r24, Well lets just say I don;t use the M box much any more. I the R24 is so easy to use and the feature set so rich that I have switched almost exclusively to using it even with when recording at home with software. Firstly is functions as an audio interface as well as a portable recorder. I found that when I was not working with the software I focused more on the music and got way more done. the software approach has so many distractions and I was always fighting with the machine so to speak. not the case with the R24. This recorder is so reasy to use and sound just as good. I love it. It has a cool onboard sampler and drum machine that is worth the price alone. made some killer s transfering files to the computer for editing is fast and easy. I still record some stuff directly into the software and there are two thing that make this unit better than my mbox. It has this control surface feature where the R24 controls the software. The transport and faders work the software like a real mixer. how cool is that. The other thing is you can use the onboard effect even when its an interface. This has solved a whole bunch of latency issues with the computer. I play guitar and have tried virtual amp etc. and was always bothered by the slight delay when recording and using the software plug ins. Not any more. The R24 offloads the processing to itself and there is no latency when on the amp modeling inside the R24. I can still record the guitar dry and bring it back into the software virtual amp plug of choice on playback but no delay when I record. this is absolutely necessary in my opinion when recording guitar. also do the same thing when recording vocals. splash a little reverb on when recording make me sing better yet I get a dry track in software I can do what ever with after. this is totally pro. Anyhow all I can say is the R24 is the best recording unit I have bought and as a result I have more than doubles the amount of songs recorded and written over the last 2 months. All i can say is just buy it. If you want to make music and not battle the machine the r24 is the way to go.
