Fostex MR-8 MkII
The Fostex MR8 MK II

Very simple, this small multi-plugs quietly is still very small! for the home studio, impeccable

The connection is analog, you have actually two tracks that can register simultaneously.

Inputs are XLR or Jack. on the first of two tracks, you have three choices:
- Guitar input (with an amp simulator adjustable 3 position)
- A line-identical to the second track
- Mic-line position, which uses the built-in microphone to fostex, again with 3 Effects Simulation for micro)

You have more, for each track, four different effects (room, hall, flat delay) adjustable, you can control the dose at knob, effect send on each track
The accuracy of sampling is to 44Khz

The support is a compact flash card type

You can connect a footswitch

The machine has a MIDI Out

But above all, two USB connecting your PC and fostex

the fostex makes your point in Wawe FILES, thus after the operation carried out very quickly burn your CDs! Cool


This is the fostex!
A quick read of the manual is very well done lets you record your first track very quickly!

The functions are really accessible and clear!


The general dynamic is very good to excellent reading on your compact flash, or that it degrades when you turn Wawe you file for your PC. You really do not lose quality, but sound power. CDs are engraved and very low volume ... I have not found a solution ..


5 months here I use the Fostex MR8 Mk II

What I like: size, ease of maintenance, ease of use, sound quality ... (It is coupled to 2 Tannoy Reveal active, the sound is perfect !!!!! No Breath)

All the little features and more (to read the master with three choices poxerful effects, natural, bright)

But is mainly the ability to transmit directly to your PC and recorded the songs, which converts them Wawe Point: What happiness!!

The four recordable tracks (two simultaneously), which can then be transplanted on tracks 5 / 6, which gives you another 4 new tracks recorded!
So what makes a total of 8 tracks, and finally with a touch of the button 1-6 to 7 / 8 gives you eight tracks mixed quality that you can burn it quickly to your PC!

I use before the antediluvian TASCAM has 464 K7 ....

The value for money is awesome!

Of course, I do it again this election! I will say though that the model with internal hard drive should know better made when burning CDs ...

Even for Live taken by repeating, 2 micro enough to have a quality recording ...

And when must I go through my mixer ....

To buy the closed eyes for those who want quality cheap ... € 200 is impeccable!

See manufacturer's documentation.
The manual is now available in French on the site Sennheiser France.


Simple to use
SanDisk Ultra II CompactFlash 2GB (no probme for 8 tracks)
Footswitch essential Punchin / out.
Used only for making the multi-behind mixer (see profile).
Sync seamlessly with Boss DR880.
Wav file transfer from the CF card reader on the computer and mixing it (I do not use the USB Connextion)


Excellent dynamics.
The A / D and D / A are transparent.
Effects of little interest.


Three months of use.
Simplicity of use.
No fan noise or hard drive (unlike the MR-8 HD)
I no longer use the squenceur of the computer for mixing.
Good qualitprix.
Right for me I do it again this choice.

Fostex MR-8 MkII
see posts before, there's nothing to say it's super easy to use, has hardly necessary to read the manual


Low see above


I n'suis not sound professional, but it does carrment! (Well for the price)
I would not put one in 3000 so I took a multitrack Fostex
and I'm not at all dcu!
the only complaint I would have is that there is no equalizer ... lack the ca!
p'tite a table front and mix it rgl


18/20 for what I expected ... I just wanted to replace the sound card in my PC that has too too much lag! So for a ministudiste like me does carrment ca! and less than 300 are frankly not ahsiter!
For those who want to cost whatever it gives:
the song "Cover Silverchair - Suicidal Dream" was recorded with the t-MR8 MKII, direct, no passage of APRS pc recording: an SM58 for vocals, the guitar: a p'tite takamine Plugge electro live on the fostex, bass like live on Fostex!

I put 8 / 10 qualiseur 'Cause no, especially because now I have a taste p'tit mutlipiste like that, bah I wish I had the best of the best ....

mathologie's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Fostex MR-8 MkII
I suppose you know any which patterns General

too bad there is no outlet insert to put a limiter.


Using very simple except for fast forward and rewind and no rear jog shuttle before: very shame, not practical and very tiring the shot. Nothing to do with an old 4-track cassette or edireur pro.


Converters and transparent preamp lot except with a true condenser microphone or absence of low-cut (and limiting) is a very important obstacle. Also slight lack of sensitivity but lightweight.


I have two years.
easy to use notepad with internal microphone.
report quality discount.
Nevertheless I prefer an old cassette sound but we live in the digital age eventuellemnet spend your mixes on an old cassette to heat.
