« All right as a portable studio, very good as a computer-music recording tool »

Published on 03/02/12 at 03:03
- What connection possibilities (analog, digital, MIDI, etc.) does it offer? All three.
- What kind of memory does it use (ZIP, MiniDisc, HDD,...)? Compact flash
- How many tracks can it record/play back simultaneously? 8 in mono, 4 in stereo but you can multiply the tracks virtually.

USE

Is it easy to make settings? It's not hard to get something decent, but you'll need to spend several hours with it to get something really good.

Is it easy to access the main functions? It's not that straightforward, but you'll eventually get there.

Is the user's manual clear and comprehensive? YES, but nothing beats practice.


SOUND


- Are the effects and filters effective? Yes and especially to record vocals, but the basic presets are pretty bad and you need to make retouches for clean guitars, although you have everything to get a good sound, you only need some patience and perseverance to dial it in.

- Is the dynamic response faithful? Yes.


OVERALL OPINION

How long have you been using the product? Since 2007.

Which feature do you like the most / the least?
*The most: The pro aspect of every mic take
*The least: The guitar presets and the compact flash memory

Did you try any other models before buying this one? Not before, but I did afterwards and, overall, I'm satisfied with it.

How would you rate its value for money? For 250 bucks, you can't go wrong.

Based on your experience, would you choose this product again? As a portable studio, certainly NOT! But after having integrated into my computer music system as a recording preamp, it has become indispensable and, despite my modest setup, it allows me to get professional-sounding recordings.
