I just came across the Zoom MRS 1608 as a resale deal today. I was 1st interested in a computer studio set up and was sold on convenience regarding this digital multi-track recorder. Exactly how good of an item is this and will I eventually regret this purchase?

&#40;moved your topic here where it makes more sense..&#41; <BR> <BR>no doubt you have more options to build your music on a conputer based setup. <BR>for the price given <a href="http://namm.harmony-central.com/WNAMM04 ... 608CD.html" target="_blank">in this short review</a> you could actually get a pc with a minimal but decent soundcard. <BR>if you are not familiar with pcs this zoom unit may be a quick way to get started, but i feel you will run into limitations when you get more serious about your productions. <BR>to get a good final mix you need to be able to apply at least equalizing, compression and some effects to the individial tracks. i am not sure how convenient this unit is for doing so. i'd say: try to read as nuch as possible about what is possible with this unit and compare with what you actually need in your situation. &#40;sounds stupid, but this is something you have to do for yourself&#41;

gonna weigh in with interruptor on this and say you could get a good Mac or a so so PC as well as a multi channel audio IO unit for that money and probably do the job better in software. <BR> <BR>I personally use an iMac with either GarageBand &#40;free&#41; or Logic Express &#40;$300&#41; and a Presonus Firebox audio interface. Im not crazy about the Firebox though and would rather get the new MOTU Ultralite, but no budget right now. <BR> <BR>I will say I've looked at units like the Zoom for doing live shows, but I dont have money to burn on something like that right now.
