With the MR-8, Fostex has proven digital can be simple, and they’ve produced a fully functional digital recorder that costs less than many analog cassette multitrackers. That is especially cool because there’s built-in analog distortion with a level control right there plus a three-setting amp simulator that really sounds good. People who bought this item also bought. Request a new review. I recommend it to lay down tracks anywhere inspiration strikes.

While frustrating, we are trying to work around it. The guitar distortion sucks unless you want a very digital sound, then its OK. When recording with the MR8, you can get high-quality recordings with this specialized device without needing a long training period. So I think that anybody who complains about the MR-8’s sound is expecting too much.

It runs on batteries or included power supply so you can take it anywhere, and it gives you simple yet effective options you’ll actually use. It is the most inexpensive cheap is not a word that should be associated with this product 8 track recorder on the market, and it gets the job done.

I found the lower res was perfectly acceptable for the projects I work on at home. I took it to small pieces classical and composite characters. With exprience, I would resume trs certainly the same device.

Capture inspiration whenever and wherever you are. If you want this thing right now, Musician’s Friend is the only place to get it. The actual recorder is just a very small part of a professional setup.

If you continue using this website, we will assume that you are happy about that. I went online to research products that allow you to do so.

Easy to move from basement studio to computer. If yo u handle it as fragile, and don’t leave the batteries in when your not using it, it should give you plenty of service and blast for the bucks.

You MUST look at the list off of the fostex website to make sure you’re buying a good compact flash card if you chose to buy one with more storage, which would be smart that is compatable with the mr8 because not all of them are. The best way that I have found to get a close professional sound is to mike all your instruments or amps and go from there.
