  • 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!

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...

  • 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.

Great Reacording Device

  • Summary: This is a great product. It has a ton of capabilities for such a small package. Use it for live or studio recording. I use it for both and I am very impressed with the built-in microphones. If I had to list one complaint it would be the typical Japanese manual.

  • Summary: Great portable mixer/recorder that includes two condenser mics for ambient sound recording. Only issue as has been documented is the crackling on playback from units itself but actual recording is fine. 8 tracks to your DAWS!
