This thing is pretty cool. Lots of functions for a small unit. Still learning how to use it,but so far with the onboard mics into two of the four tracks or direct line out to one track both sound great ... way better than those handhelds I've used before. Of course ... bass always sounds better thru speakers. The different input methods have low,mid and high input level presets as well as their own input gain pot with an overload clip light ... nice.

Comes with a 1G sd card. Comes with batteries but a power cable was extra. Metronome, tuner and other extras.

Running 1/8 out into a stereo for playback ... wont work for monitoring. I need a good set of headphones.

Trying to figure the best way to capture the band live at practice. I'm thinking a shure sm57 on the guitar cab and a hung phantom powered condenser mic to pick up the drums and bass. As I'm new to this stuff ... I'm open to any experience and suggestions.

For $150 including the cost of the cable, this was a deal. Again, way better than any handheld I've used that cost 1/3 more with less function.

I'll post more as I learn more.

any time I have recorded the band live in the garage was with my JVC camcorder. it has a compression circuit on the audio that I have not found an equal to. You just cant overload it no matter how loud the music is...totally perfect for recording.

yes it is not a board mix, but for live, I have used the JVC for almost 5 years at gigs and never had an audio overload issue like the cheap camcorders are notorious for. It uses miniDV tape so 90 minutes is all you get compared to the new harddrive recorders, but so what for amateur uses it is w.o.n.d.e.r.f.u.l.

every one of my youtube vids are done off that thing, as well as a bunch of videos on my facebook page.
