  • Summary: This was ordered and my fingers were crossed.....and it turned out....i am not a professional...just a guitar player that wanted to capture my music....i have since recorded dozens of songs and am pleasantly pleased with this recorder....If your looking for studio quality sound....go to a studio....if your looking for good quality music to put on a cd for your own enjoyment for a reasonable price....don't look not further....

ZOOM = smart design, cheap production

  • 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.

Just don't

  • 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

Well, it was broken, but the new one is great.

  • Summary: The unit ended up being broken, which is a shame. Got a new one from a brick & mortar. Some functions (like importing tracks) are needlessly complex and glitchy (god help you if the bit rates are different, and even if you get everything right, it still might not work), but otherwise it's stupidly simple to use and the sound quality is amazing. I'd definitely recommend this little guy, but I'd recommend keeping it simple. Record > copy to computer > edit on a DAW.

perfect Companion for the Home recording

  • Summary: i bought the piece basically for stage performance of music concerts. the gain , assigning of tracks is very good. record quality is excellent. applying inserts needs some detailed study. I have not explored DAW functions yet. over all quality & expectation were met. the bundled cords & head phone are of good quality.
