  • Summary: I love these recorders!!! I originally bought one of these in order to get started in multi-track recording of live events that I mix, and loved it so much that I bought a second unit to be able to record 16 channels at once!

  • Summary: It's affordable and it does what it is supposed to do. It may loose synchronization in a middle of a recording session or chop wave files, but it happens seldom.
  • Pros: Cheap and functional multitrack recorder.
  • Cons: As always with ZOOM, everything is low quality plastic and not always working.

  • Excerpt: Mainly, I purchased this product cause I needed a recorder with at least six xlr inputs and didn't have the cash for a Sound Devices. I thought this was gonna be something like an H4n with multiple channels but what I got was the least efficient piece of equipment I have ever owned or even used.
  • Pros: Good Frisbee, Looks Cool
  • Cons: Difficult To Use, Maddening, Not Even Flammable, Unnecessary Functions, Weak
