I bought this equipment as payment to my demo producer instead of paying him dollars.

It made sense because then we could continue to use it for subsequent vocal demos instead of going to the studio.

The coolest thing about the BR8 is that you can sit at home in your PJ's at 3am when the song hits you and record multiple tracks of the song in a matter of moments. It is also a plus to upload the song to my computer as a .WAV file.

The zip disc is definately an upgrade from a cassette but it is too easy to run out of space with only 100MB available.

The unit is made well. I did start having problems with the AC port. Now you have to fidget with it to keep the power on.
That does not go over well when you lose power and your unsaved work without a moments notice.

Now I have about 40 zip discs and no longer have access to the producer's BR8. I was so impressed that I want to stick with the Roland family of multi-track recorders.
I bought the first one years ago for $650.00. I am hoping to find a used one that is still in good shape. Oh yes, I even got a merit certificate from using a song recorded on the Roland BR8. Not bad huh?
