All-in-One!

  • Excerpt: This recorder has everything you need in it to make professional-sounding audio recordings. I use it to record stereo keyboard, vocals, and some guitar and sax and the recordings come out sounding very well. The usage of the R8 seems intriguing at first but after going through the very easy-to-follow manual and playing around a bit, I figured out how to use it.

It doesn't do separate channel output.

  • Excerpt: It doesn't do separate channel output. This device is not ideal for location sound recording for a film set. You can record separate channels into the recorder, but if you need to send to camera, you can ONLY send a stereo mix, you can not separate the channels in the mix. This may be great for music, but is not sutable for use on a film set.
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: Cheap

  • Excerpt: Very nice product. As a semi-professional composer and a song writer I find this product very good for my needs. I can use it as a stand-alone (44.1kHz with effects), or as an interface with the computer for a higher quality recording.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Powerful, Versatile

A GREAT alternative for indie filmmakers

Q the filmmaker, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use this for indie filmmaking instead of a 2 to 3 thousand dollar field mixer. I think for ten times less, it's a better buy considering that you have redundancy built right in. Not only can I record directly to my camera, but I can have a redundant backup via the R8's SD card slot. The fact that you can also record HD audio via a computer only makes it that much better. Currently, I only use it as a mixer to camera, but having options is always a plus.

Impressive Package

  • Excerpt: This is a powerful bundle though I purchased it based on its portability and features for the price. My main thing is to make quick demo's and record our band live. The instructions are excellent and clear, and the unit has been well thought out. Things are not too deep in menus and it remembers where you've been before. It's great that using a built rhythm is stereo but only takes one track.
