The R20 records directly to SDHC or SDXC cards up to 1TB. The colour coded faders, gain knobs and track regions on the 4.3-inch colour touchscreen ensure an unparalleled simple workflow. The R20 is the first multi-track recorder that allows accessibility for the visually impaired as the R20 app features VoiceOver and VoiceOver Gestures.

Furthermore, the R20 offers 150 internal rhythm patterns and supports Standard MIDI files to import and play back bass lines, melodies, piano parts, etc. to create backing tracks with an ease. 

In addition, the R20 features an internal synthesizer with 18 sounds +1 drum kit, playable via a MIDI keyboard connected via USB-C. To spice things up, an EQ, compressor and gate as well as a full MFX processor, which is compatible with our Guitar Lab software, are at your fingertips. The R20 works also as an 8-in/4-out USB-C audio interface with a Mac or PC.  The R20 makes it insanely simple to track, edit and mix your songs, letting you focus on the music.

The R20 will ship in Q1 2022.
