Wait, Zoom’s new R12 multitrack recorder is also an FM synth!?

Zoom knows more about making standalone multitrack recorders than most, so the launch of the new R12 isn’t exactly a surprise. However, what will cause eyebrows to raise – and perhaps even the odd jaw to hit the floor – is the news that this portable device also contains an FM synth.

18 FM sounds are included, and you can play and record them by plugging in a MIDI keyboard via the USB-C port. Alternatively, synth parts can be programmed via the touchscreen, which can also be used for track editing purposes.
