I need advice. I am interested in acquiring an 8 track recorder and do not know where to start. Here is what is important to me: I play "simple" blues style guitar. My favorite artists have a "live" quality int heir recordings. Not heavily processed, so I cannot imagine needing more than 8 tracks. I use very few effects with my guitar. I want something SIMPLE to use. I am not interested in becoming an audio engineer. Just laying down some good rhythm tracks to jam over. I would like something with a drumkit and maybe a bass emulator built in if at all possible. I see the Zoom PS04 ( I know its a 4 track, but it has drums) and the Fostex MR8 out there. Could these units serve the purpose? Are there any inherant limitations of functionality in this class of machine that I might regret later if I purchase one? I do not know enough to know what it is that I need. I would like one self contained unit that will mix down to a MP3 or WAV format. Also, does anyone have direct experience witht he Digitech GNX3? It has an 8 track recorder and the drum kit, etc, but it seems like it might be a bit complex to operate. I want something that will do excellent quality home demo type of stuff. Value for bux is very important to me too. But what I value most is simplicity. Advice most appreciated.
