    Zoom R16 - "Very good multi-track recorder"


    Hi. I've had the R16 for 2 years and use it in my home studio, as a multi-track field recorder (radio deck, conferences) and a soundcard. That's its main strength: It's a multi-task device that allows you to work without a PC. I think it comple…

    Zoom H4nSP - "Good and practical"


    I work with videogame soundtracks and bought a used Zoom H4n to record ambiences and outdoor sounds in general. Mine one has a pretty nice plastic case, an AC adapter (but can run on two AA bateries as well) and an USB cable, and I've bought a separa…

    Zoom R16 - "Too much or not enough"


    I've been using it for one year now and haven't had any hardware problems. After having tested the H2, H2N and H4N models, I opted for the r16. What I like best about this product is its portability and what I like least is its non-portability.…

    Tascam DR-40 - "Not bad, but not much better than a phone"


    The thing I like the least is the 1) sound quality, 2) the WAV file format (bulky) and 3) unreliabilty (broke down twice in 6 months). Please see details below. 1) Sound Quality Having used condenser mics with excellent results I was expecting …

    Tascam DR-40 - "Best Recorder In It's Price Range"


    I want to start off by saying this is a very good recorder. Tascam truly delivered with this unit and I'm surprised other companies don't follow in their footsteps. What I liked Least: I hate the floor noise, the preamps are a lot noisier than …

  • Korg Sound On Sound

    Korg Sound On Sound - "great little easy device"


    I baught it because I don't want to bounce after two or three recordings. It is really easy to use. Just follow your instinct. For the money it is just great. I used the Boss micro BR and it does a very good job too, but Like I said before, I have to…
