I found the lower res was perfectly acceptable for the projects I work on at home. With exprience, I would resume trs certainly the same device.
I got very professional sounding recordings. Six double-As in the back and it’s a free-roaming machine. This review was originally published on http: It runs on batteries or included power supply so you can take it anywhere, and it gives you simple yet effective options you’ll actually use.
SOUNDS The effects are trs effective for voice, but limited, and the only effect guitar overdrive is not effective trs. Fostex continue to develop quality products for Professionals and Hifi enthusiasts.
All user reviews for the Fostex MR-8
Dosent have a whole lot of effects built in, but it does have a usb connector so i just take the files off there and add effects with cooledit. I hardly even had to use the fostx to figure things out. Each of the channel faders has its own effect send and pan knobs.
The one thing that I don’t really like about the unit is the way that memory is stored. Been trying to get ahold of someone at fostex to get replacement buttons but no luck yet Its a really easy to use digital 8 track, even though its more like a digital 6 track casue 4 of the channels are split into 2 dedicated mixdown channels, you can still record on mrr8 only on the left or right channell, if you want md8 you take up two tracks, other then that a great piece of euipment.
fosfex It uses batteries for added portability if it so suits you which was an attribute that i really liked. I found many different options, though my price range was not significantly large. I took it to small pieces classical and composite characters.
It is compact and very user friendly.

But hey, there are connections! All come through fairly decent with the MR Repeating that four times, I had four tracks of pristine, bit, 44kHz sound. Not satisfied with those reviews? With 8 tracks you have to bounce tracks to track 5, then record again to get all 8 tracks you fodtex looking at a 3 minute song and no more. The ultimate record-anywhere multitrack.
In sum, this is a digital recorder that’s had some serious thought put into it. All of this for just Real PHAT 1- I quickly able to record my keyboard parts that taient pr-dj mixes, then add the vocals, choirs and solo acoustic guitar. Its easy to set different points in a song as reference points so you dont have to search all day long to find a certain point in a song you are working on.
Or you can settle for a little less resolution bit, But pretty much all digital recorders I’ve encountered up till now have required so much hard learning to operate that by the time I get them up and running, my jones to lay down tracks has evaporated. You then mix tracks plus 5 together onto track 6 to get all 8 tracks.
Fostex MR-8 Digital Recorder Review
There’s even a mic simulator that lets you choose between dynamic, condenser, and tube mic sounds. The result is that I grow shy of the recorder altogether.
Our members also liked: The usual functions are easily accessible and all this is very well explained in the manual with schmas and of the representatives of the unit step, we do not take the head for hours with phrases no sense head!
Price is great for the unit and the built in effects are very good.
Digital recording is so much easier than the old cassette types I used to use in many ways including ability to cut and paste and find your spot. The new Fostex MR-8 is more than just another digital multitrack recorder. It has only been good to me so far.
