Thanks for this video. It highlights some issues to bear in mind when considering a purchase. I hope that Korg will address these problems in an OS update.

You're welcome Steve. Glad it highlighted a few things. I hope KORG can do a few things to make our experiences with the machine that bit more pleasant too.

The R24 would be perfect but one major omission: it doesn't offer MIDI in/out to enable external MIDI devices to be synchronised with it. I really don't understand why Zoom missed that.

Good point, it is a strange thing to omit, especially when there are so many competitive products.

I watched this whole video and didn't even think about that until your comment. For those needing to sync this up with other equipment via MIDI, you are out of luck. The TASCAM DP-24 might be a better option for those needing MIDI, and does most of what this Zoom does, and the Tascam is about the same price at most retailers, around £349.00 at the moment.

Do shites really fly?

I almost got to ordering the MPX8 until I realised it didn't have a battery power option. That seems a major omission. I had in mind that it would be a fun addition to my live set-up, allowing quite visible sample hits (I would have held up the unit so people could see me doing that), but that kind of mobile approach would only work with a battery-powered unit.

Funk maverick from the far left of the leftfield
Introduction
A funk maverick from the far left of the leftfield, my music blends sharp-witted lyrics with sleazy funk, geeky electronica and spiky new wave.  Please get in touch if you'd like to book me for your gig or event.

I blog about politics, the labour movement, society, music and culture. I'm an active member of UNISON, the public services union, and I support the CPGB and Left Unity.
