Wow, that Zoom sounds almost exactly the same thing as my Roland/Boss BR-600 Multitrack unit. Anyway, what questions do you have? Oh, how many devices do you need to record at one time? What instruments/Vox are you trying to record? Do you need Phantom Power for a condensor Mic? Let me know and I will try to help.

i wanna record, in excess of 2 guitar parts, bass, drums, vocals, maybe keyboards
i will propably be running through pedals, maybe my amp tone depending
i will be buying a mic for vocals and maybe a differentone for micing up my acoustic

reeli what i wanna know is it any good for basic recording, just for me to get started

Well, you can only record two sources at the same time with the Zoom. If your going to record parts seperately, that is not a problem. For basic recording, I'm sure it will do fine. You also may want to consider the Boss BR-600, seems like the same thing, but I know it has two decent on-board mics. It also has the COSM amp/effects, drums, etc. Heck, I've even place the BR-600 into my amps FX Loops and used it as backing material (kinda a band in a box) while I play my guitar. They are also great for just recording ideas, or complete songs.

But whatever you decide...I'm sure it will be fine for basic recording.

Well, are the drums electric or acoustic, and if it's the latter, what do you want to mike (kick, snare, overheads...)? And finally, what's the budget? Is $600 the absolute maximum?
