Good is an 8-track recorder numrique (6monos and 2streo), also includes two tracks spares for programmed drums and bass / rhythm box.
Mine is a 2nd generation 1044 version1 (ie with 20G hard disk instead of 15G) with the update to version 2 via USB port (optional)
you can record two tracks simultanment, besides the rear connections are compltes for any type of.
the better to see on their website: zoom.co.jp
Question use everything is simple, there are not too many buttons everywhere ... on the other hand sometimes you know the sub-menus. But hey nothing complicated with the manual if you are really blocked.
For my part I bought it and started recording the first day c'tait so simple.
APRS prcis more for stuff (like ping-pong, import / export tracks, automation ...) I read the manual (in English it is more clear explanation) and it trs easy.
For I t sounds pretty bluff departure. Later I realized the small "default". Finally it is the my ear that comes into play and gots and colors ...
Scratch presets are good but when compared to other amp simulators (POD or SansAmp kind) are not picture it is deu. I find that a lack of punch especially distortion. ons and a clear will. Finally, even when zoom is what.
For mastering effects not bad and also mic effects: I recorded a BMD that sounds not too bad. sr can be good or even its presets and the choice is vast ....
I use it since its release in late 2001. I sold a year APRS (need as ...) and have purchased another. If I ratchet it is because I thought the best c'tais qualitprix / use.
I have tried other apps and even on the computers and still the silent zoom n 1.
What I like least is the part that I find bote pace not good programming. and then the sounds are good but limited (one crash, a snare, a bass drum etc ... per set) and then sync via MIDI is not great I think.
Since one year I have the USB interface and I m'clate. I combine computer / zoom and a full suite of open channels (eg put the drum track on computer programs and playing with a soundfount).
I can not say I would do it again because it's already done. And if I have to sell it again I would resume the zoom but this time a version above (more tracks, DD ...)
I IT CAN BE USED for 4 years and I am very satisfied.
It is suitable for both personal records as group records.
I often use it to record vocals and acoustic guitars combined with rhythmic patterns and keyboards. I am very happy with the results and the recording quality.
I continue to use it very often, when the opportunity arises.
I regret the lack of USB but apparently there is a housing for a card that could do it .....
The device is simple to use. Good ergonomics point of view it's light, but you have to listen more than watch.
However, I am a bit disappointed with some effects that I find very distortion-oriented, so when one is keyboard like me, it just grates the ears.
I want them to record more than two tracks simultaneously but hey, after, another budget.
I also regret the fact that one can not apply a distinct effect on each track.
Otherwise, frankly, when I see the number of times it allows me to listen to my personal or my compos composed with my band, it makes me shiver.
I use it for 5 years home studio
I am very happy.
But I wanted to correct a notice saying that we do not Paut
DIFFERENT insert effects for each track. Error.
for each track mono or stereo can rgler
the equalizer, chorus, delay, reverb and pan.
For the final mix, and I assure you the reslut
quality is superb.
For the price today is on the classifieds
make it an excellent recorder for people who
have little budget
Manual in French it is very clear and easy to find
what is research.
The effects are good qualities to the mix, for the cons Guitar Effects
are not super, normal good multi effects guitar cluck 2 3 times its price, it is better to have external effects.
