The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Recording with Portability

Record 2 tracks simultaniously and playback 8 tracks. Record live music performances, rehearsals, songwriting sessions or even audio for film and video. You can playback up to eight tracks of audio at up to 24-bit/48kHz resolution as WAV files. There's even an UNDO/REDO function to cancel the last recording operation and restore the previous state should there be a mistake. You can even mix down completed songs inside the R8 and save a mix for each project.

An Interface with 2-in/2-out Capability

The R8 works as an audio interface which supports 2 inputs and 2 outputs. Connect it to your computer via USB, launch your favorite DAW or use the included Cubase LE software. With its simultaneous 2-in/2-out capability, you can record up to 24-bit/96kHz high definition audio. If you use the 44.1kHz sampling rate, the internal DSP effects of the R8 are also available for your computer tracks. Adjust the mixing balance between the DAW playback sound and the direct sound for monitoring with the dedicated control.

A Control Surface

The R8 can be used as a control surface for most DAW software. Use it for transport functions (play, record, stop) and mixing operations. It works with major DAWs such as Cubase, Logic, and Sonar. Furthermore, you can easily move multiple faders at the same time. No more mixing with a mouse!

An 8-Voice Sampler

With built-in sampler functions, you can loop audio data on any track. Play the 8 pads in real-time and combine loops to create a performance for an entire song. When setting loop intervals, you can see the waveforms for visual confirmation. Change the tempo without changing the pitch with time stretching and trim the unneeded parts of loops,. You can use the sampler and recorder functions together seamlessly to play back loop tracks while recording instrumental performances on other tracks.
