Though with this digital recorder, I hardly did that. I feel that the MR-8 was constructed very well. Been trying rm8 get ahold of someone at fostex to get replacement buttons but no luck yet Its a really easy to use digital 8 track, even though its more like a digital 6 track casue 4 of the channels are split into 2 dedicated mixdown channels, you can still record on them only on the left or right channell, if you want stero you take fosttex two tracks, other then that a great piece of euipment.

I was able to record as soon as i got my compact flash card a MB card comes with a new unit for storage, but i bought a MB compact flash card because fistex heard the wasnt enough space. There’s a built-in mic so you can record notes to yourself about setting levels and such.

I also do vocals by running my mic to my PA then using the line out to the recorder. Easy to operate for someone who is not technically very proficient. When I finally dug into the menus, I found an impressively sophisticated operating system so intuitively designed I could figure most of it out without the manual. The Flashcard that came with the recorder had very little room for songs, so I have been forced to by more flashcards to suffice my recording desires.


You MUST look at the list off of the fostex website to make sure you’re buying a good compact flash card if you chose to buy one with more storage, which would be smart that is compatable with the mr8 because not all of them are.

If you continue using this website, we will assume that you are happy about that. I love my unit and even if i could afford it right now, i don’t believe i’d be purchasing a bigger unit simply because of the ease of use and portability of the mr8.

The usual functions are easily accessible and all this is fosstex well explained in the manual with schmas and of the representatives of the unit step, we do not take the head for hours with phrases no sense head! Also, there is really no way to have two different effects. The MR-8 has fostrx an end to that once and for all. I found the lower res was perfectly acceptable for the projects I work on at home.

Of course, the type of mic you use has a huge effect, but these settings add some nice options to match your voice and the song. Each of the channel faders has its own effect send and pan knobs.

This recorder is really only good if you have a decent computer to hook it up to. The result is that I grow shy of the recorder altogether.

I like this unit very much. At the same time, it provided all of the functions that I had been searching for in a recording unit. The included flash card is way to small for just about anything.

Because of this, I was forced to settle for less. This unit is great for rough mixes. But pretty much all digital recorders I’ve encountered up till now have required so much hard learning to operate that by the time I get them up and running, my jones to lay down tracks has evaporated. It me8 be operated almost entirely from the buttons and knobs on the top panel yet offers much deeper sophistication if desired.

It ships with a MB card which will hold about 25 track minutes in high-res mode. The one thing that I don’t really like about the unit is the way that memory is stored.

I play many instruments including guitar, mandolin, banjo, bass guitar, didgeridoo, jaw harp, keyboards and various types of flutes. You seem to have Javascript disabled.

It is compact and very user friendly. I use Cakewalk studio pro and bounce back and forth between the two so the card isnt an issue for me.
