Artists use this
Sounds promising, but is overcomplicated with limited benefits.
This device, in theory, is very powerful and useful in the right context. In practice, however, I have found the interface to be frustratingly fiddly, and yields no better results than other, simpler recording solutions. I actually only needed a single track recorder, but I thought that this one might be a better bet just in case I could use the other functions in an away-from-home context. Essentially, having more than one track means that it tries to be an all in one recording and mastering studio, which is not at all practical in a device that small, with one control wheel and a tiny LCD screen! As a result, I had to get through the thick user manual before I even vaguely understood how to use it for the purpose I needed (one track recording and exporting only). In retrospect, I should have bought something like a Tascam DR-44. I'm sure it's useful in the right hands, but it was not what I needed, and I'm not convinced it's a good laptop/audio interface portable recording substitute.
