"Cool little machine."

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
This is exactly what I need right now. I would highly recommend this product.
This thing really sounds great for its price if you use it right. When I first got it I kept on putting the gain up way too high on it then figured out that I needed to lower it and it sounded a lot better.
Again, for the price this thing is very much worth it. I has so many different features and things that I can't even figure them all out.
Ease of Use
It takes a little practice to get to know how to use this thing if you're not familiar with it. The manual explains everything fairly well, but it's still pretty difficult to understand the device entirely.
I've dropped this thing from about 4-5 feet off the ground and nothing happened so I'm pretty pleased with its structure, and it seems pretty damn tough.
This has great value, as I said before, and is worth every cent I paid for it.
The Wow Factor
The reason I got it was because I needed a 4 track recorder and this one looked sweet. I got a hell of a lot more than just a 4 track.
