Musical freedom. Battery powered.


Live to make music
The R12 is made for musicians who live to make music. And they want the freedom to make music wherever they go.

All you need on-board
Compact and mobile, you can record, edit, and mix songs without a computer. Use the R12's full-colour LCD touchscreen to easily cut, copy, loop, and edit your tracks.

Amazing sound
The R12 has super-clean preamps, and you'll love the way they sound. With two XLR/TRS inputs, and 8 tracks of audio, the R12 is perfect for recording everything from demos to release-ready songs.

Fully loaded
The R12 includes a send effects channel offering reverb, chorus and delay with a dedicated effects return fader. For advanced tones, you can use presets and effects from Zooms Guitar Lab. The R12 also has pan and a 3-channel EQ for each track and a compressor on inputs 1 and 2.

Playback. Play along.
Use Sequence Play to create a playlist of your projects. Then use them as backing tracks, whether you're playing live or rehearsing a set.

It starts with a groove
With 150 preloaded drum loops in a variety of patterns and genres, the R12 provides a versatile rhythm section for any project.

Import audio files
Add additional audio samples by importing files into your R12 via Micro SD card or USB thumb drive.

Take it everywhere
The R12 provides up to 5 hours on four AA batteries allowing you to bring your production anywhere. Additionally, you can power the R12 with the optional AD-17 adaptor, or a USB battery.

From headphones to monitors
The R12 includes an 1/8" stereo headphone jack as well as dedicated 1/4" monitor outputs.

Expanded control
Musicians can also plug in their iOS devices to use the optional R12 Control App.

Interface + Control surface
Use the R12 as a stereo audio interface with your favourite DAW or streaming platform, via USB-C. As a control surface, the transport controls and faders make it easy to adjust and control your software during production.

Connections for everything
Connect microphones, instruments or line level devices like keyboards, mixing boards and more.

Hi-Z
Input 1 on the R12 has a Hi-Z switch, allowing you to plug your guitar directly into the recorder.

Phantom Power
Both inputs on the R12 offer 48V Phantom Power for condenser microphones.

Stay in time. Every time.
