Great R-8 Recorder
I have used my recorder for a little over three years and I produce national radio broadcasts and also produce and arrange original music for others. I use the R-8 an average of 30 hours per month for radio alone and after learning the master levels that suits FM radio acceptance I casually do the work without need of a major tool or tools. The more time you use the unit the easier to produce a top product. Being a retired pro musician I want things lightweight and durable. The R-8 has earned me thousands of $$ and I will buy another. Also it does not require the highest dollar SD cards. Using SD cards repeatedly can cause errors but it's the Card, not the R-8. Learn the Tool settings and checks and balances each time you restart as the cards hold the memory. Levels can change even if sliders haven't moved. I master all radio programs at 123 on the master level, as well with music cds. Thanks Zoom Co.
