Importing projects from R8 to R24

Post by sjon » Fri Dec 14, 2018 3:40 pm

Hello.

I’m new here.

I am a longtime R8 user and have just acquired an R24. I am trying to import my R8 projects on to the R24 by copying them from the R8 SD card to my computer to the R24 “PROJECT” file on the R24-formatted SD card. The projects are there and can be played when the SD card is inserted into my computer. The project list appears when the SD card is inserted into the R24. However, when I select a project from the list on the R24 I get a message saying “PROJECT ERROR – PLEASE PRESS EXIT”.

Surely Zoom wouldn’t have made it so an R8 user who upgrades to an R24 would not be able to work with the R8 projects on the new device? I saw a post here that suggested that they have different project/file structures. Or am I missing something obvious (which is the most likely answer)?

Thanks.

Hello Simon,

I've neither the R8 or R24 but I have used an R16 for a long time now.

Some suggestions spring to mind, have yoiu assigned the files from thew R8 to tracks on the R24?

Another question, what format ie bit depth and sample rate does the R8 record in? The R16 / 24 in standalone mode is WAV files at 44.k or 48 k sample rates and 16 or 24 bit depth.

Hello Mike.

I haven't been able to assign the files to tracks on the R24, because although it detects the projects, it doesn't allow access to them. Perhaps I need to create new projects on the R24 then use my computer to import the R8 files (rather than whole projects) into these new R24 projects.

The R8 also uses WAV files at 44.1k or 48k at 16 or 24 bit, default being, if I'm not mistaken, 44.1k/16bit.

Best regards,

Simon

OK, I've found a couple of threads that would seem to confirm that I need to create new projects and then import files, not projects. They refer to the R16, but I assume the information is valid for the R24.

Thanks for your help (I may still be back on this matter :roll: ).
