        Fostex MR8MKII

        Comments about Fostex MXL MR8MKII 990/991 Digital Recording Package:

        I purchased this unit in August08 for garage recording and am completely satisfied. The machine is so easy to use and the quality so good that I ended up keeping instrumentals that I was just laying down for practice. Things to be aware of: The 8tracks are four working tracks that you bounce down. Get a 2GB card for max recording space. DO NOT WASTE MONEY ON A 4GB CARD. The machine only reads 2GB, Max.I have not gotten the machine to interface with my PC yet. I believe it is an error with the operator (I have a history of defeat with computers)I highly recommend this machine.

        Awesome Recorder!

        Comments about Fostex MXL MR8MKII 990/991 Digital Recording Package:

        The Fostex MR8 is a great device, very easy to use, and with two mics included in this deal you're ready to go instantly. I use the recorder and mics to record my band (electric guitar, bass, drums, sax) and it does a great job. Very easy to multitrack, very easy to mix and master. Also it's a great deal.
