Hi Guys,
Im thinking of purchasing one of the new BOSS multitrack HDD recorders, wondering if anyone else here has used these. Or if there is a better brand/solution. I know I can use my PC for multi-track, but looking for something a bit more portable.

Oh hell yeah, that one rocks out and it has everything you could possibly want in a porta-studio.
It is very user friendly and considering the features i think it is a great value.
He paid more than what Musicians Friend is asking for it. The salesman got him to pay extra for the CD Burner, lol...

His was over $1600.00 for the same damn thing...

Roland has some really good units as well...Stay away from Tascam products unless you want to read a fucking encyclopedia to understand it.
