    Alesis SR-16 vs Boss DR3.....which has better output sound quality?

    Read a lot of reviews on both of these and don't really see much in the way of sound quality comparison. Main sort of negatives I see with the Boss are difficult to use. I have one now and I find it very easy to use as I am very familiar with 90's/ 2000's Roland / boss menus and to me has some...

    Got a recorder I want to plug my condenser mic into the LINE input. I will be using external 48V power supply for the condenser.

    Boss Micro BR compatible with Windows 11

    Just saw one of these for sale very cheap. I had a BR600 which I had to sell because it was incompatible with Windows 11. All I want to do really is transfer the finished files to my computer as wave. I believe they have a wave converter program where you can get the Boss files off and convert...

    Recording mics (newb questions)

    Pretty new to recording mics. I have a Behringer XM8500 (SM58 knock off but damn good mic) and an XML990 I recently purchased. Both I realize not the top of the tree but both seem to be well respected workhorse budget mics. I am recording into a Zoom R8 recorder. I have used the Behringer mic...

    Zoom R8 metronome / count in

    Playing around with the metronome feature today and must be missing something. I set everything up and did an 8 beat count in. I set it to record and play. I assume this is the right setting? I don't want to record the metronome obviously only hear it when recording or playing back. So I count...

    Recording my V drums on Zoom R8 portable recorder

    Hi yall. Trying to record straight from my Roland V kit (using output from drum module) directly into the R8. Normally the sound of these drums through the PA or headphones excellent, very realistic. Seem to be getting a very boomy, reverby recording. The input levels seem to be fine, not...

    Zoom R8 questions

    Need to replace my Boss BR600 as it is not compatible with Windows 10. I don't need anything super high tech, just something for a bit of on the fly recording with drum tracks and guitar effects. On the surface the R8 should do the job for me....A few questions... Has the R8 been out for a few...

    A few questions...

    Hi all. New to the forum. Have a very basic question about recording tracks (not mastering or mixing) on my Boss BR600, although I guess most work on the same principle. For eg I am going to record some bass on track one. I have a level control for Guitar Bass inputs.What dictates the level of...
