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.

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!
Review: Fostex MR-8 Mk2 Digital Multi Track Recorder
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.
Summary: You might imagine little difference between the MKII and its earlier sibling the MR*, but the difference is tremendous. It is so much quicker and easier to locate the functions you need regularly. If you have to pay a little more to get it, it is certainly worth the money.
Summary: well i got a yamaha md8 multi track recorder. for the price it is one of the best bargains out there. the md8 is very simple to use you just have to play with it and u will get the ahng of it, but u will need to get an md data disk online u can find them there.
Summary: As an electronic drummer/acoustic percussionist, the mr-8 mk2 is almost perfect. For $150, I’ve got solid 6-trak recording capabilities. I do editing with Audacity but wanted something durable & portable for the road. I dump the totally raw tracks into my laptop & do minimal editing/mixing/fx there. For aspiring producers/audio engineers, I recommend a laptop w/ pro level software. For rolling stone musicians like myself, I rec this or the Tascam DP2 CF.
