  • Reuben Dunnings


    Again, the item arrived speedily and safely. I'm delighted with it!

  • Steve


    Different from the Tascam multitrack I've had before so the operating method took a bit of getting used to, but after a bit of practice definitely recommended + nice and portable.

  • Mr Sultan


    decent recorder, has many features.

  • James Richings


    Very easy to use, great sound, and it makes recording much more fun than using a computer. It's easier to concentrate on the music instead of the equipment.
