There is one things that annoys me slightly about the MR-8. I use the MR-8 for mixes and not a PC (although I intend to do that when I have more equipment). I do have a laptop and I use this a lot. I bounce and mix tracks 1 -6 to track 7/8 and then copy the mixed 6 tracks to the laptop and rename them to tracks 5/6 - copy them back to the MR-8 and delete all the other tracks. This frees up 4 tracks for the singer and more overdubs.
Anyway, this involves going to the laptop a lot and I put the MR-8 into USB mode. When I press "stop" the MR-8 then defaults to the first song on the menu and not necessarily the song that I was working on. Occasionally, I have forgotton to check and immeidately started recording the next track only to find that I am recording on the wrong song. Very frustrating. It should default back to the song from which you came.
On the other hand it is so useful to write songs on and it is red so I forgive it.
