Posted on 30/01/2016 by I bought this because I needed a portable recorder which I could use at home and take with me on holidays. It is packed full of features. The jam tracks are great to jam along with, which also tells you which key to play in which is quite convenient. There are loads of guitar, bass and vocal effects which are great for studio recording. The live recordings are easy to make, some trial and error with positioning of the recorder and levels but once mastered sounds great. The drum track can be tricky to understand at first so read carefully the instructions and follow step by step and you'll get it. The SD card can be used in the car which is cool for singing along to your recorded songs. It really is a brilliant recorder with two condenser microphones built in. Great value for money!
