Not Good for Dj MIx complations or EDM producers

By Matt Guthrie

from Denver,Co

Comments about Fostex CR500 CD-R/RW Master Recorder:

If you want to manually add tracks to a recording it always adds a 100ms Gap between tracks with no adjustment for this. I will be selling mine in favor for one that does.

Performance of the Fostex CR500

By Rett Christensen

from Riverton, Utah

Comments about Fostex CR500 CD-R/RW Master Recorder:

I have a Fostex reel-to-reel unit that I still use and hundreds of hours of music that I needed to burn onto cd. My main purpose for purchasing the CR500 was to get everything onto cd's, and the analog input and recording process couldn't be more simple. I was burning cd's within 10 minutes of opening and rack mounting the unit. I am not digital/computer-literate and am so happy with the ease and funtionality of the analog to digital process of the CR500. I'm sure there are many applications that I will never use with this unit, so I can't give a complete "across the board" review of everything this unit does and should do. All I can say is that I am extremely pleased with what it does for me being "old school" and still using analog recording products...I can quickly and easily preserve my work digitally while keeping the warm analog and "hands-on" sound that I love so much with my old gear...the best of both worlds.
