making it the best sounding video camcorder you've ever heard.
The Q3 supports QuickTime (MOV) format. With
MPEG-4 SP compression in VGA size (640 x 480 pixel)
at 30 frames per second, you can record very smooth
video shots anywhere, anytime. Plus, integrated digital 2 times zoom
function enables you to get up close and personal.
■ Built-in 2.4” LCD Screen and Speaker
The Q3's large, 2.4" LCD screen with a resolution of 320 x 240 makes
viewing easy on the go. And its built-in monitor speaker enables you
to check video with audio right after shooting.
■ True Stereo Sound
Quick Shooting
Quick Editing
Quick Sharing
Shoot your videos with
incredible stereo sound.
Use built-in software to make
movies on your computer.
Publish to all your favorite video
sites or watch on your TV at home.
Brilliant Stereo Recording... Now on your videos.
The Q3 uses the same microphone capsules as our industry-leading H4n Handy Recorder and
is perfect for recording anything where great audio and video are a must. From live musical
performances and rehearsals, interviews, conferences to video podcasts, journalism, education,
recitals, weddings or sports, the Q3's pristine audio quality takes your videos to another level.
Get Started Right Away
Designed with everything you need to make your movies right out
of the box, the Q3 includes HandyShare software for editing, and a
2GB SD card for up to 1 hour of video recording time. And the Q3
will also accept up to 32GB SDHC cards for a staggering 16 hours
of moviemaking!

can record in very loud or very soft
environments. Or use the Q3's Auto
Record Level function to
automatically set the appropriate
recording levels for the situation.
■ Go Shoot Outside.
With an on-board low-cut filter to reduce
background noise and an included
windscreen that prevents wind noise
from being picked up by the Q3’s highly
sensitive microphones as a standard
accessory, you can make movies with
incredible audio clarity, even outdoors.
And because the Q3 has a standard
tripod mount, you can put it just about
anywhere for the perfect shot in any
environment.
*A tripod is not included.
To play music better, seeing your
performance can be almost as
important as hearing yourself. With
the Q3, you get both capabilities.
Music educators and students alike
will find a plethora of applications
for the Q3 from the classroom to
the practice room.
■ Dress Up Your Videography
The Q3 makes an excellent
accessory for anyone who does
videography as a full-time

being able to use the Q3 for
individualized video shoots of the
bride and groom before a wedding.
Or give a Q3 to everyone in the
wedding party for personalized
video clips. Capture the wedding
music with ease. The possibilities
are truly endless.
■ Sound Matters on YouTube
Ideal for shooting any kind of
musical performance from jazz to
classical to metal, solo to
orchestral, the Q3 will make it fun
and easy to shoot your music
videos anywhere, anytime. The
Q3 also makes it easy to share
your videos with your friends on YouTube. Simply plug the Q3 into
your computer, launch the onboard HandyShare software and select
the videos you want to put on the web.
■ Turn On the Audio
The Q3 is the only portable camcorder that allows you to turn off the
video and record audio only. The Q3 supports audio recording at
96kHz / 24-bit resolution which is superior to CD quality. You can also
record in MP3 format for handy uploading to your website or email.
■ Two AA Batteries… Standard
For added convenience, the Q3 includes two standard AA/LR6
batteries that give you about two hours of battery life with
continuous video recording. Or use two AA-sized Ni-MH
rechargeable batteries with dedicated charger, or an AC adaptor
(option AD-14 sold separately).

R16
Bundled software:
Steinberg Cubase LE 4
One recorder with everything to go.
Built-in
high-sensitivity
stereo microphones
When you want to quickly
record anything from
songwriting ideas to ambient
room audio, the R16’s built-in set
of stereo mics will come in handy.
Vocals and acoustic instruments
can be captured with
excellent clarity.
SLIM & PORTABLE DESIGN
Three-in-one studio takes your session anywhere.
Seamlessly combines multi-track recording, audio interface and control surface capability in a mobile production studio.
The R16 provides three production solutions for making great recordings: a portable, multi-track recorder,
USB audio interface and controller surface. Record tracks with the MTR and mix them with DAW software.
Lightweight and battery operated, the R16 goes everywhere you need it.
Recorder
Record 8 tracks simultaneously with 16-track playback
Audio interface with 8-in / 2-out capability
Capture audio in any setting, from
live music performance, drums
with multiple mics to music
rehearsals and songwriting, even
audio for film and video. The
R16’s simultaneous 8-track
capability makes professionalism
easy. Playback up to 16 tracks
using its 16/24-bit linear WAV
format and 44.1kHz sampling rate.
The R16 functions as an audio interface
enabling direct input of sound to a
computer. Support for high quality
24-bit/96kHz encoding ensures great sound.
Eight input channels and two output
channels can be used simultaneously. If you
use the sampling rate of 44.1kHz, the internal DSP effects of the R16 are
also usable on your computer tracks. A dedicated control lets you
adjust the mixing balance between the DAW playback sound and the
direct sound for monitoring.
Controller
Synchro REC
Control surface for all major DAW functions
Sync two R16s for 16 tracks of simultaneous recording
Transport and mixing operations
of the DAW software can be
controlled using the R16. This
gives you greater control and a
better feel for mixing. In Mackie
Control emulation mode, major
DAW applications such as Cubase,
Logic, and Sonar are supported.
The R16 is the first recorder that
incorporates the ability to generate a
synchronization signal based on USB data
transfer timing*. By connecting two R16
units via USB, you can designate one to
function as a USB host and the other as a
USB slave, allowing synchronized
transport operation. This lets you record on up to 16 tracks
simultaneously to competently handle a live performance.
*Synchronization accuracy has a tolerance of about 1 to 2 milliseconds.
Its eight combination mic/line input jacks can handle mics or line-level
signals. Phantom power is provided on channels 5 and 6 for use with
condenser mics, and the Hi-Z switch for channel 1 accommodates a
guitar or bass. The R16 is ready for any kind of input source.
■ Use master track for final mix
A dedicated master track lets you do the final mixdown right on the
R16 without a separate master recorder. With sequence play, several
projects can be mastered together and played automatically. And you
can create playlists for finished songs in any order.
■ 135 DSP effects including guitar amp simulations
The R16 comes preprogrammed with 135 types of digital effects for
recording, mixing, and mastering. The insert effect has seven
modules with algorithms optimized for guitar, bass and vocals. In
addition, two send/return effects are also available, so that you can
use up to three effects simultaneously. The R16 also comes with
models of 18 different guitar amps such as Fender, Marshall, Vox and
Mesa Boogie, and 6 bass amps such as Ampeg, Bassman and Hartke.
A compressor and equalizer effect that handles 8 channels
simultaneously provides further flexibility.
■ Tuner and metronome onboard
The R16’s built-in tuner is great for quickly tuning an instrument or
checking the pitch of vocals. During recording, the metronome
provides a click track for your drummer and is also handy for
practice. The metronome sound can be sent to the headphones,
letting you use a previously recorded backing track on stage during a
performance.
■ Locate function makes editing easy
Set up to 100 marker points and directly locate them whenever you
want. Other convenient functions for editing include A-B repeat
playback and auto punch-in/out, making it easy to re-track part of the
recording.
■ Supports SDHC cards up to 32GB
Because the R16 utilizes compact and
readily available SD and SDHC
memory cards as its recording media,
there is no motor that can cause noise
as with tape or discs. And you never
need to worry about problems caused
by external vibrations that can crash
hard drives.
■ Power options
The R16 can be powered from the
supplied AC adaptor or six AA/LR6
batteries. A set of batteries will last for
about four and a half hours, and because
they are standard batteries, changing
them is always easy and convenient. The audio interface and
control surface functions can also be operated on USB bus
power, providing another power option.
■ USB 2.0 Hi-Speed mode for fast file transfer
Because the R16 has a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed compatible port, file
transfer to a computer is quick and painless. Computer-based tasks
such as editing with DAW software, burning your original CDs and
importing WAV files are integrated smoothly into your workflow.
■ USB host capability for connecting USB memory
A USB flash drive or large-capacity
external hard disk* can be plugged into
the USB port of the R16. This lets you
quickly distribute a recording to band
members after a rehearsal session or
make a backup of your recordings even
when you're not near a computer.
*Because USB bus power for external hard disks is not supplied,
a separate power source is required.

■ Program Rhythm Tracks FAST
In addition to conventional step input, the RT-223 also supports
the innovative FAST (Formula Assisted Song Translator) method.
Using the drum pad as a numeric keypad, you can quickly build a
rhythm track using formula-style input.
Assigning patterns to pads allows you to trigger patterns simply by
tapping the pads. This is great for live performances and for DJ use.
■ MIDI IN connector and external line input
The MIDI IN connector allows synchronized play with an external
device. By receiving note messages, the RT-223 can serve as drum
sound source module in a MIDI-based system. The line input
accepts the signal from a CD player or other line-level source,
or from a guitar or bass via an effect. Seamlessly integrate the
RT-223 into any session.
■ Real-time song programming with remix feel
■ 2-way power circuit for batteries or AC adaptor
■ 8 hours continuous operation on four AA batteries
