  • 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.

It doesn't do separate channel output.

16 January 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: Cheap

Very good!

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Summary: The service from Andertons was excellent. The product delivered well within expected time and was the lowest price around for the same product. My only critisism is with the product itself.

  • Summary: I have tried using this as a stand alone unit as well as an interface with my computer. It works great with my computer and with the version of Cubase that is supplied. I have to admit it's a little too fiddly to use on it's own so although it does what it claims to - I think I'll be mostly using it...
