Never buy a used no return again.

  • Summary: I am not really thrilled with the fostex MR-8 mk2 cd recorder. I have other fostex equipment and have good luck with but this recorder was used with no return and I will never make that mistake again. It works but has some static in it at times.

"Great sound, great value."

By a customer from swiftwireless.com, zzounds.com
21 December 2011
  • Excerpt: These things sound great! I'd read reviews that said that these were like a home stereo speaker with lots of bass response and that studio monitors are meant to sound bad, because when you get them sounding good you know you've hit the sweet spot. There might be some truth to that, but that's like saying you should marry an ugly girl because she'll be grateful.

"If your looking for a nicely priced studio monitor system, then this is something you should really take some time to give it a"

By a customer from yahoo.com, zzounds.com
23 June 2011
  • Excerpt: For me it was out of the the KRK's rocket8's or these and after testing out the KRK's, I chose the Mackie MR8mk2's. They sound more cleaner and have a nice bottom end to them that make your mixes just a little bit easier on you. These studio monitors really get the job done!

Fostex MR-8 Mk2 Digital Multi Track Recorder

coachkelley50, Ebay
7 April 2011
  • Summary: These are great little machines for what they do. You can mix and add effects to up to 8 tracks over two sessions, more than enough room to be creative. You have lots of choices for room echo and amp stacks, as well as auotpunch to help clean up tracks after you lay them down. They are very sensitive to shock however, and it always seems to be the mother board that malfunctions. I have used two, and got good results until they stopped working.

Review: Fostex MR-8 Mk2 Digital Multi Track Recorder

jimtope, Ebay
23 February 2011
  • Summary: The Fostex MR-8 Mk2 Digital Multi Track Recorder is a self-contained home music studio. It is a very versatile piece of equipment, and it is packed with features that make creating home music recordings very fun and very easy. I connect mine to my computer via a USB cable, and edit my songs further using software such as Adobe Audition, and several other programs, although really great recordings can be achieved without needing to do that.

Fostex MR-8 Good bang for buck

twhouston, Ebay
12 February 2011
  • Summary: I really like the simplicity and ease of use although there are lots more features that I choose not to use like "cut and paste", "tempo" etc. The onboard guitar effects are pretty bad but will work in a pinch. It's fairly easy to bounce tracks and make a wave file although you may want to replace the 128mg card in favor of a 1 or 2 gig card as it fills up very fast. This is my 3rd MR-8 as the buttons on the other 2 broke and would be next to impossible to replace.
