once you learn the product you can easily track ideas. the feature set is amazing and very versatile specially if giving you the option to mix backing tracks for live setting so many creative uses for utilizing it into your live set up

Just a week of playing with it!! It has so much features,learning how to use all of them is going to take some time and practice! Started with clean guitar,added onboard effects: super sound to record! The Machine has all you need to make super recordings!!

This recorder has everything you need in it to make professional-sounding audio recordings. I use it to record stereo keyboard, vocals, and some guitar and sax and the recordings come out sounding very well.

very hard to use instructions are very complicated records well but it is not easy I recorded a few tracks but I wiped them out by pushing the wrong buttons the manual was not helpful at all you have to be a brain surgeon to figure them out very well made but hard to use

I use this for indie filmmaking instead of a 2 to 3 thousand dollar field mixer. I think for ten times less, it's a better buy considering that you have redundancy built right in. Not only can I record directly to my camera, but I can have a redundant backup via the R8's SD card slot.

It doesn't do separate channel output. This device is not ideal for location sound recording for a film set. You can record separate channels into the recorder, but if you need to send to camera, you can ONLY send a stereo mix, you can not separate the channels in the mix.

I just love it. I am not an expert so for my the sound quality is excellent. It has more features than I need right now.

this is a good audio recorder for fild work the only thing I cand find the low cut filterI used it one time for a movie and most for sound effects they told me you can plug to a camera but I dont see how its a good mixer the other thing is that it captures sound from around you like behind you for...

This is a powerful bundle though I purchased it based on its portability and features for the price. My main thing is to make quick demo's and record our band live. The instructions are excellent and clear, and the unit has been well thought out.
