Well I want something in which I can record and hopefully even portably. I wish something that can record at least 4 tracks. The more the better. But portability would be great.

Or something that has a mic, and records real good. But i also want a multitrack function on it. I know boss makes a micro something. But i dont know if it is good.

If you want to record and be portable with 4 inputs then look into the Fostex MR8HD 8-track...or even higher if you need more tracks which is nice to have...

also look though "Recorders" in Tweaks Guide found in my sig.

yup, hard disk recorders are ready to go out of the box. (besides mics and cables) no need for a computer.

However, most do have USB if you like doing the mixing on a PC
Grammar and spelling omitted as an exercise for the reader.

Between that fostex and the boss micro, which you guys think would suit me better?

Im gonna be using it to record jams. So i will need it to have a good built in mic if possible. And I will also be using it to connect instruments into it, to record simultaneous tracks.

I just want to take it, and record the sound in jams and stuff.


yes they can be used without a PC, thats why they were made.
Although you can use USB to link to the PC to transfer the file and edit it if needed/wanted.

I suggest staying away from the micro BR, its great for small guitar work but the built in mic isnt top notch.

The Boss BR600 has nice built in mics but I highly suggest some type of hand mic like a Shure SM57 or SM58...


I suggest reading though Tweaks guide before buying...you still seem very unsure of what you need...

After reading that you should know what you need and what will work.
