See below, but to summarize: USB connection to computer works great. One of the things I really like about this unit is that you can operate it without getting too involved in layers of menus.

All user reviews for the Fostex MR-8

The one thing that I don’t really like about the unit is the way that memory is stored. The uncompressed spring “nickel” and mastering effects give a “EHJV” extraordinary piece. I must say that I only use it for recording, the rest is done via the PC.

Of course, the type of mic you use mrr8 a huge effect, but these settings add some nice options to match your voice and the song. I found a great deal at Musicians Friend where I got the recorder, a mic and chord, a tote bag, and the flashcard that is used to record memory.

Fostex was founded by Foster Electric who have been developing high quality speaker components since I quickly able to record my keyboard parts that taient pr-dj mixes, then add the vocals, choirs and solo acoustic guitar. That is especially cool because there’s built-in analog distortion with a level control right there plus a three-setting amp simulator that really sounds good.

I got very professional sounding recordings.

But getting high quality recordings although possible, requires some work. The storage medium fowtex one of those tiny little James Bond-looking compact flash cards. 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! For the fosrex of the unit, its quality must be considered supreme. Built-in microphone for handy song memo. For my demo, i used a berhinger because they tend to have decent quality gear for a fraction of other brands equipment.


Fostex was founded by Foster Electric who have been developing high quality speaker components since Then with the touch of another button you can turn tracks 7 and 8 mt8 a stereo WAV file ready for export to a computer.

It ships with a MB card which will hold about 25 track minutes in high-res mode. Bottom line if your just looking for somthing to record ideas on and play with to actually recording your band with the help of a mixing board for multiple inputs its not bad for the money.

Mastering effects and reverb are decent. MIDI sync out, chain play mode, signature and tempo maps, bar offset, click level, song libraries, and on and on are available to be used as your grasp of digital recording gets tighter.

The connection is complte, except possibly to be prinses RCA output to connect an amp show.

And that’s not why I took it. Though with this digital recorder, I hardly did that. You seem to have Javascript disabled. The effects arent the best but you can use them just to play around with new stuff and give ideas for new material.

The MR-8 has put an end to that once and for all. Did I mention this thing runs on batteries? The Flashcard that came with the recorder had very little room for songs, so I have been forced to by more flashcards to suffice my recording desires.

Repeating that jr8 times, I had four tracks of pristine, bit, 44kHz sound. By putting all the major controls and functions right there on the top panel instead of buried in a confusing menu system, the MR-8 Mk II, unlike some other recorders, actually aids you in capturing your musical ideas.

The sky’s the limit on this powerful little machine and my home recordings have reached CD quality level because of this unit. There’s a built in mic on the unit, but it’s smart to hook in your own mic.


If you want this thing right now, Musician’s Friend is the only place to costex it. I was disappointed that it is billed as an 8 track when to get 8 costex, you have to first record 4 tracks and then bounce them and submix to track 5 and then record tracks again. I acquired this unit so that I could record different parts of the songs that I write in order to write new parts fosyex them. The price for this unit is exceptional.

SOUNDS The effects are trs effective for voice, but limited, and the only effect guitar overdrive is not effective trs.

The mastering effects on the mr8 are pretty admirable for the low price.
