Hi,

You've got something recorded on the Zoom R16 and you want to get it into Mixcraft? Check your Zoom R16 manual to find out how to transfer recorded files to your PC.

You can also use the Zoom R16 as an audio interface. I think it has to be turned off to do that? Check your documentation.

Hi,

Lots of people use a Zoom R16 with Mixcraft, so it should work.

Hi Greg

I got it too work. I think i was concentrating too much on the control surface but that's for V6

thnx

Hi,

What did you do to get the 8 tracks over to your PC?

Instead of putting the zoom in audio interface mode which is "control surface" set up, I had to put the zoom in card reader mode and drag each track individually into mixcraft and place the wav files into separate tracks.

You stated in some previous post that Version 6 will support control surfaces so I await anxiously for that.

Hi,

Yes, Mixcraft 6 will have MIDI-based control surface support.

Thanks for letting us know how you solved the problem, it may be helpful to other Zoom R16 owners!

Hey Acoustica Greg (or anyone):

I'm not a Mixcraft customer yet, but I have been looking at it for a few days now and like what I see. I'm not trying to derail this thread, but I have a question that is somewhat related.

Earlier in this post you said "Mixcraft 6 Midi-based control surface support".
What does that really mean? I also use a ZOOM R-16 but is does not have Midi capabilities. So, will the faders on the ZOOM R-16 operate the volume controls in Mixcraft 6?

Thanks in advance for the response.
No matter where you go, there you are.

Hi,

It should work. I believe that the Zoom R16 does use MIDI for its control surface functions.
