    Product Description

    The Fostex MR8 mkII is the easiest to use digital multitrack ever. If you can operate a tape recorder, you’ll be recording and multitracking within minutes of opening the box. It records to affordable Compact Flash cards.
    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. In addition there’s great sounding built-in digital effects, guitar amp and mic simulators, 2 mic inputs with +48V Phantom Power, handy mix-down effects, plus the ability to hook up to a PC for data editing, and backing up your songs. New for the Mk II is the USB host feature which allows for the easy connection of an "off-the-shelf" CD-R burner via USB. Making CD masters has never been more simple.
