had it one year now.

DO not buy one unless its dirt cheap. I still think its ace for the price but the limited options for mixdown compression suck,as already outlined, and for 50 pounds more than I paid, You can now get the 16 track version...8 track simultaneous record, two sends per channel aswell as internal digital FX. If you never use say more than 6 tracks its ideal, but otherwise quite limiting.

one annoying thing...the master / mixdown effects only apply to tracks 7 and 8 so if U wanna compress all 8 tracks at bloody well can't

Excellent machine. bounce 1-6 onto 7/8 and add another 6 so it's effectively 12 track digital, bloody good for less than 500 pounds. Plan sessions well and it's a very high quality versatile set of tools.Like Nigel said, it's a nuisance not having auxillary in/outs so you might need to get your effects spot on and record "wet" first. i'm used to a four track tape so I absolutey love this machine. If any one knows of any "user groups" etc please mail me.

little difficult to figure out at first, manual is of little help, but what's new,......interesting product,....not a true 8 track,......... 1-6 need to be bounced to 7 -8 and then you can start over w/ 1-6, so i guess you can get actually 12 tracks,..but then again, you have no way to control the mixed signals on 7-8 as independant sources,.......also you can only use the effects unit as one effect at a time,....i.e., cant have a reverb on tracks 1 and 2, and a chorus on track 4,'s one or the other. but you can put any effect on as many tracks as you like at once,.....except 7/8, these can only use the mastering effects. spo alot of limits, but also alot of power and quality sound for the $$$$$$$$$ fun to use.

A Great buy for anyone who wants an easy to use, affordable digital multitracker. Only problem, no aux sends etc. If you just want to record then process audio on a pc then this is your best bet
