Design and Function

The Zoom RT 223 is fully customizable as you have the ability to combine elements from different machines to create your own drum kit, as well as fine tune the pitch, levels, and panning settings. The RT 223 comes equipped with a COMP EQ effect, which lets you control the overall EQ and tonal quality of any drum set or bass sound. The device also lets you adjust REVERB effects. The personalized EQ, and reverb settings can be stored and saved for later as patches.
