Closest StorePort Coquitlam, British Columbia
This unit has everything going for it and would have been my most used piece of gear except for 2 issues Zoom failed to include. #1 the bluetooth ONLY iPad control not only limits the range of remote control to 10ft but isn't password protected. Allowing anyone with the app to mess with the settings in a live situation. #2 it records 24/96 to an SD card but only allows 24/48 via USB connectivity? So you need a seperate interface for your DAW to playback the SD recordings it makes? If it wasn't for these 2 glaring issues it would be 5 stars across the board.
