Looks promising! But my first thought was: "I'd like that with 16 channels" (not 8 + 2 x stereo) ...
Just can't get enough :-)

Lots to like but a few dislikes too.

I think many interested primarily for digital recording will compare it to the TASCAM 24SD & 32SD. Retail on the 24SD is less and the 32SD is the same.

Perhaps the primary reason to limit recording track count is to maintain the market for the R24. Who knows the L-12 may be the first in a new product line.

Does not look like this will have the ability to record virtual tracks. Only over write or punch in/punch out. Can anyone verify

Interesting, they call it a board and it looks more like a mixer that can record than like a multitrack recorder. Though watching the colonies of bees video, there is a moment showing navigation through menus much like my H5's. I would consider it if it was around 5 years ago, now I already have a working mixer and a working recorder so I have no need for this. I guess zoom realised that a major part of their market are people who tap into a mixer's inserts and record a multitrack of their live show for full on remixing later on. I think this product should be compared to the combined price of an R16 and a mixer like Mackie profx 12 or profx 16. I don't think you can get away using an R16 or the tascam 24 channel recorder as your live mixer, this one should work as a fully featured mixer for the number of inputs.

My brother has a Tascam DP-24 (that came with a CD burner versus the DP-24SD that does not include a CD burner) and he has used it as a front of house mixer and digital recorder at several live shows so I know it can be done.
