Fostex MR-8 Digital Recorder Review

Ultra-portable – the ultimate record anywhere multitracker. I love my unit and even if i could afford it right now, i don’t believe i’d be purchasing a bigger unit simply because of the ease of use and portability of the mr8. The one thing that I don’t really like about the unit is the way that memory is stored.

In the headphones there a little bit of noise but it’s not on the actual recording, just the headphones. I also liked the fact that I was able to take all my old cassettes and convert them to. See below, but to summarize: I quickly able to record my keyboard parts that taient pr-dj mixes, then add the vocals, choirs and solo acoustic guitar.

Plus, since i bought mine used, it didn’t come with a card It works hand in had with my computer, all i needed was a regular USB cord, the software for tranfering tracks straight from the fostex website, and a demo of Adobe Audition 1.


The mastering ofstex on the mr8 are pretty admirable for the low price. 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. I absolutely love the ease of use.

User reviews: Fostex MR-8 – Audiofanzine

It’s a good idea to invest in a seperate mixer to hookup to the mr-8 so that you can feed in more than 2 mics at a time and have more control over the sound than you would have with just the unit itself. If you continue using this website, we will assume that you are happy about that.

MIDI sync out, chain play mode, signature and fosetx maps, bar offset, click level, song libraries, and on and on are available to be used as your grasp of digital recording gets tighter. For my demo, i used a berhinger because they tend to have decent quality gear for a fraction of other brands equipment.

There are all the primary functions you expect from a digital recorder-copy, move, paste, and so on-plus a whole raft of things you wouldn’t expect from such an affordable unit. Log in Become a member. Fostex continue to develop quality products for Professionals and Hifi enthusiasts.

Each of the channel faders has its own effect send and pan knobs. Though with this digital recorder, I hardly did fostec. You seem to have Javascript disabled. There’s even a mic simulator that lets you choose between dynamic, condenser, and tube mic sounds. But those clever guys at Fostex, have predictably gone a little further by making the Fosrex the easiest to use digital multitrack ever. I just plugged in, armed the track, hit Play and Record at the same time, and did my stuff.

Our members also liked: Real PHAT 1- The MR-8 has put an end to that once and for all.

Of course, the type of mic you use has a huge effect, but these settings add fostx nice options to match your voice and the song. Currently I have sold a Boss BR, as the pace box to include am interested in my compositions. Recording quality is good.

Sampling excellent, high quality sound. Capture inspiration whenever and wherever you are. Fostx, we released a CD of high quality trs with a rate of almost no wind.

I went online to research products that allow you to do so. The EQ for mixing, however, are very effective, it gives me a potato acoustic electric guitar.

I must say that I only use it for recording, the rest is done via the PC. By using our services, you agree to our use of cookies.
