Hey everybody. I own, use and love my mackie HDR. but, It seems like it's on the soon to be "extinct" list. I hav'nt heard anything about a "new version" anywhere. and the mackie HDR chat room is pretty much dead as well. I know tascam and radar have cotinued production. The "stand alone" digital recorder is just the best idea in the world to me as far as practicality is concerned. I just love the easy use of how "outboard gear"works so well with the HDR! ......I simply can't afford a "big" tape machine! and the whole "computor heavy enviroment" thing is just tooooo involved for this simple little drummer. has anybody heard any rumors of an "HDR II"...? or, will I be forced with only the options of a radar unit?.....any oppinions or words of hope on this ?
