LiveMusic Posted June 20, 2004 Share Posted June 20, 2004 My head is swimming. So, I will have some extra money this week. I need a way to produce demos. What I've done through my p.c. so far is poor quality. Mostly due to crappy hardware. I've read till I'm blue in the face. I also need a new laptop. I can limp along, I don't have to have it but I do need one for business and music, as well. And money is an issue. What do you think of Zoom MRS802 ? I can get it for $550 without the CD or $700 with. The CD can be bought later for $300. Yikes. How important is an internal burner? Is this going to be a pain in the butt NOT having an internal CD burner? I was pretty settled on getting a $300 something (stand-alone digital recorder) from Zoom, Boss, Fostex, Tascam, etc. And it WOULD work. But people started saying "You MUST have this or that... get a nicer recorder." So, now I'm up to $550 with the Zoom MRS802B. Or, I could apply the $550 to a laptop. I might could buy a used laptop for that. And then get recording software. I wonder if I would have to upgrade the sound card? Bonus is that I could learn how to use the laptop in live gigging. I don't want to produce crappy demos. As good as I can get them. But running down to a studio every time, I can't keep doing that. I have 200 songs to demo. No lie. (The best ones have to be done really well and the others, just archived in case something happens to me.) I would be recording acoustic guitar, arranger keyboard and singing. Heck, I wish I was rich. It's so confusing. If nothing else, do you have an opinion on that Zoom MRS802B or does another model strike your fancy? > > > [ Live! ] < < < Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
