    Nickel for a small group

    4 simultaneous tracks recorder with hard disk drive.
    Base effects (reverb and distortion).

    UTILIZATION

    I must say that everything is really very simple and intuitive. I zoom therefore R8 last gérération, compact, multi effects and everything but two tracks, it was just too much. Here with four tracks and reverb is a nickel to record a demo

    Is used with output mixer for vocals and drums, a microphone in front of a speaker output and lead guitar line out of the bass amp. The result is very professional. I find the reverb really excellent, as well as the lexicon built at my table soundcraft.

    I never used the drive and I do not understand too well the value ... I finally I guess is it for someone

    OVERALL OPINION

    A bit large and heavy but has side AC, the quality is forgotten the rest.

    The configuration-gnrale is not accessible to beginners.
    -Mrs functions the simplest application reading and rereading the manual
    -The manual is not provided in French, we must look to find it. Ms. franais manual is not fully translated, there are passages in English.
    The manual is quite clear but it is paved. Dcourageant enough!

If you have never had a mini studio I'll take the deprecated MR8 HD CD, reserved for professionals. Personal if I had to do it again I will try to find one in maniment more accessible. Besides, I'm going peuttre even be required to do so. That is to say to sell it and buy the more faile to start ..

    Those who know the basics of the acquisition and mixing audio will not be lost, this apareil is designed as a "real" mini-studio, a handheld console ...

    SOUNDS

    Converters Fidler, little breath. Effects Intgr gadget, I personal password.
    The dynamic condition is respected in many signal conditioning (pramplis and effects of good quality.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use the CD for MR8 HD 8 months to record rptitions and concerts.
    This device is a marvel: easy to carry, more than enough memory, possibility of eregistrer 4 tracks simultaneously and mix them in a few seconds (one more repeat), made excellent for this price range.
    The effects are gadgets (distortion, noise, dynamic shit ...)
    I recorded on a PC before and I will not change for anything.
    DSIR for the musician who recorded his compositions, for groups who want to make a dmo recouter or repeat or concerts, this device is IDAL.

    A recommended for those who want good sound at a price affordable enough.

    Full connectivity (jacks, XLR, USB, MIDI OUT, S / PDIF, ...)

    HDD (400 Mn registration theoretical - 40 GB)
    CD Burner

    Phantom power (mic static)

    Digital Effects Processor ASP

    Recording 4 tracks simultaneously
    Reading 8 tracks

    UTILIZATION

    The manual is very comprehensive, but the "beast" is not easy to take in hand. Making a basic recording is fairly intuitive, but to exploit all the possibilities of the recorder (copy / paste, MIDI synchronization, mixing, ...), it takes a little more patience, and the manual is in my opinion essential.

    But given all the possibilities, I think it's pretty hard to make the device more intuitive. Maybe the screen could it be bigger and better used (color? Pad as for ordinary phones, ...), that's why I put that 8 / 10.

    SOUNDS

    I do not use it for professional recording, but I have no complaint to make. Obviously, for the microphones, a preamp is required except for better quality, and for guitars, effects are not always adequate (or better recommended multi effect: dubbing the sound of an amp).

    The effects are also means (saturation, reverb). But this is not a multi purpose: it is primarily a recorder. And in my ear (which is not an expert), the recorded sound is very loyal.

    But I like the ability to extract every track on PC to have a mix more accurate and easier if you want to go further.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for almost a year.
    I use it mainly for rehearsal or make "models", AC can have a quality recording of a very proper and very quickly!

    I find the correct value (around 500 € I think).

    What j'appprécie the most is the speed of recording, and the ability to rip tracks to a PC (so the camera can record designs, rehearsals or live gigs, which can then be reworked on computer)

    For that I use (fast saves, catches his live models, rehearsals, work records, ...) I do it again this election.
