Zoom MRS-8
So here in the field of miniaturization Zoom is doing well, because with this new tool trs Zoom hits hard. I just acqurir the mrs-8 and I am convinced dj.
24-bit 44 kHz for recording on an SD card, always clean with sounds for guitars, effects (internal microphone) voice attention!
But above all is the silence that rgne when you work. No noise DD fatigue ...
C really a good product with a variety of shipping to shake competitors.
8-track recording, always patterns bass / drums with adjustable pad sensitivity, simultaneous record two tracks, a system that friendly after all. Although the record .....
I think for the price there is no denying that.


Everything is relatively clear, the sound is good and well rendered.


I can not give truly informed opinion on converters they are too small!
The effects are really good and rev your exact mix will surprise many.


I recently but I have inflicted no dj bontest endurance and well this little gem all my intrt. Voil c all, Thank you Mr. Zoom.

Zoom MRS-8
I have this recorder for several weeks. I dropped the multi-track recording (sold April 1 Pises K7). and waited for the 8-track affordable. The software solution, I test too, but it's hell of a connection and not walk anywhere forcment (even a laptop as opposed to ads that show young white beaks concentrated squatting to their mobile branch anywhere with the guitar in one hand and the MIDI keyboard to the other) + stability problem of crashes, the noise ...

It's all 8 tracks in a box! Just plug in the guitar, headphones for monitoring and 1,2,3,4 as saying the Ramones!
The multi purpose troubleshoots well even with the presets (you can also take the lead in the settings). Distortion, overdrive, flanger, chorus, delay ... The whole point is l. The drum patterns covering needs Varis (from metal to reggae through jazz and ska) and can CRER his (black crooked system, something I prfr tracker style .. .). It is even possible to play live on the pads with his small fingers (+ bassdrum snare on one track and a second outlet / track for a cymbal does!)
the sound is good despite a good digital signature.
making his voice, I have mixed feelings even if a lot of expected effects, with a view
The only downside, the navigation menus diffreents is not obvious, it is better not not follow the manual to master the craft despite the backlit screen and we want to work on tracks stocks (punch in / out, cutting, copying and pasting, etc.). but it's doable and it is already good. A big step for humanism since the multi-K7 ...
Just a pity we can not put the card on PC and do its mix + adding effects on computer (with the multitude of software that was free ...).
I use the same object as a preamp chain (box reythme + bass + guitar effects easy toting!). Ideal for recording the ides flies!


Manuel clear but take the time to follow if no one wants to exploit all the possibilities of the machine


Good sound despite the small digital anything which offends the ears of rock ...


Essay 4 tracks K7 solution info (with VST effects). 8 tracks that passed but will not be my only tool. Excellent pure demos, setting box ides, repeated recordings, retouching passages.

128 MB SD card supplied original (to record a song just prs. Aqurir think a 1 Gb SD card (or GB) quickly.
2 tracks enregstrables simult
- No output (or input) numriques. Only analog RCA.


4 mono tracks and 2 that are 8 stro
he limps rhythm and bass line that I n'utile not because I played all the instruments myself even.


The sound is really good value. I make homestudio for over 20 years and I bought the Zoom MSR-8 270 EUR on ebay and almost new. Use a good microphone (Shure Beta 87A BETA58 or better, a pre-amp [m-audio dmp3 is really good value for money, watch it on ebay just to find o ca 150 eur in france or germany (m voltage me - even made to jog - and the germans are clean for biseness)] and you'll be amazed by the quality of the catch, especially if your budget is small - small.


I do a home studio + + + for over twenty years and PC for years. I bought the ZOOM MRS-8 CHRE few on ebay (280 EUR with shipping) for a "small" portable 8-track in order to work around saying tamps if the sound is not everything made the appointment. Worse, the machine is not only great practice dplacement (small, lightweight, runs on batteries and tranfo in obtion) but it sounds great (and breath). Do not forget a good micro (SRM 8 possde an internal microphone not bad for DPAN but not more), a prampli correct (M-Audio DMP3 such a good value trs Q / P ), even better if one has a compressor (the Prsonus Bluemax example is super simple and super effective and inexpensive) any fawn, three lments (micro - pramp - compr ) are still necessary even on recording a lot more upscale. For those on a budget Reduces [especially the "young p'tits" i am no longer a party (not because it's boring hlas not have money to live his passions!)] , go for it. Even if the outputs are and analog (RCA), recorded the final mix on a computer will be more than adequate. try to have the MRS-8 on ebay when one is ocaz Submitted (do not go to great del of 300 EUR max postage included)
I am so charmed by the little bug I think aqurir trs soon the new KORG D3200 (ze bomb when it seems the ratio Q / P unbelievable but much more expensive than any ZOOM MRS-8 m me) and use the PC for small alterations to the final mastering.

Zoom MRS-8
Storage SD (SD 1 new éco! now costs less than 20euros!)
2 tracks recorded simultaneously, (8 + 1 and Masters) x 10 virtual tracks per track ... plenty to get started!
Lacks a USB 2.0 connection, but the SD card + the soft Cardmanager work perfectly!


To die for:

A pure beginner can get by with just the first 10 pages

BLUFF really!


Converters? dynamic? not know (yeah, see above: I am a complete novice)
All I know is that even the Guitar and Bass effects are satisfactory.
I, who is accustomed to working in repeated and on stage with a Korg 1500G Boss ME8B and where I have all the sounds I am fond, I have not even tried to plug it into the beast!
Easy navigation through menus, various sounds and good quality ... no problem for a machine so compact!


Proud owner for 3 days of my first MRS 8 digital recorder, I was totally baffled by the extreme simplicity of its use: I had never had the opportunity to record my work, or even to use a bar ... and that's only 2 hours, just after reading the "OVERVIEW" of the manual, I put three pieces in a box complete (except voice: I must learn to sing!)
Even the install of Cardmanager went well and I have converted my first song to WAV on my PC!
I just had the opportunity to see it work its cousin, the BOSS BR 600 ... but it had neither the XLR input (I work a lot in acoustics) or the ability to create bass lines from BAR module (even if only for troubleshooting)

A quality / price ratio in my opinion totally unbeatable, recommended for those who like me dream a little easier to keep track of their inspiration ... this precious mechanics will help you go faster and and will take you farther than you do the 'Imagine!

A choice I would do it 10 times ... to provide around me!
