is my latest toy, 24 tracks with hundreds of effects & drum loops, and only $499 !!!!
I got a Zoom R16 recently, and am quite pleased with it.
Unlike the R24, there is no drum machine built in, which is a shame, and I don't like the guitar distortion effects (I have always found Zoom's effects to be just a notch better than the Roland/Boss effects, which I can't stand).
I had initially got the Boss BR-8, but there was a basic function that I couldn't accomplish with that unit that it should have been able to perform, so I swapped it for the larger, bigger (but better Zoom R16).
Have fun with your Zoom.
