16 track R20 with color touch screen. Looks cool...but...all 8 inputs should be combo...and very limited I/O. Only on
the Zoom Japan website currently. Gonna try to post a "Google Translated" link (if the Zoom website asks you to change language...click the "X"):
Zoom R20
Cheers.

Not sure. Nothing official on the Zoom NA website yet. Seems kinda odd. They have a whole line of "live mixer/recorders" and the usual line-up of "R series" multitracks. This does not seem to add a whole lot (other than the touch screen). I would have liked to have seen aux sends (for external effects), midi capability (via standard 5 pin), multiple outputs and a footswitch jack (for punching in) and a dedicated "fader per track" interface. Just me spitballing, I reckon. Cheers.

Info up on the Zoom NA website now (with several videos):
Zoom R20
Also listed as coming soon for $399.99 at Sweetwater (cheaper than I thought it'd be):
Zoom R20 Sweetwater
The R16 is now discontinued. Makes me wonder if the R8 and (more importantly) the R24 will be updated to this new "touchscreen based"
type of multitrack. We shall see. Cheers.
