Overview

Few recording bundles make it as simple as the Fostex MR-8 Mk II & MXL MXL 990/991 Recording Package, if you want to easily record right now.

The Fostex MR-8 Mk II Digital Multitrack Recorder makes capturing your music a snap thanks to its intuitive design and wealth of controls. All of the unit's major controls are placed on the top panel for easy access and a smooth workflow. Killer digital effects are built right in, as well as guitar amp and microphone simulators and handy mix-down effects. USB connectivity makes it simple to transfer your data for computer editing or CD burning with an external burner.

The MR-8 Mk II records in 16-bit/44.1kHz Normal Mode or 16-bit/22.05kHz LP Mode for double the recording time. Records to CompactFlash (128MB card supplied). Self-illuminating keys and a 132x64 dot-matrix display keep your status up-to-date at all times. Analog guitar distortion on Input A and DSP effects including reverb and delay give you no-fuss enhancement to your recordings.

The MXL MXL 990/MXL 991 Recording Mic Package is a 2-microphone kit with the latest in MXL's range of studio condenser microphones. The 990 has silky, sweet high end and a tight solid bass, perfect for recording vocals. The 991 is a superior instrument microphone designed for recording acoustic guitar and drum overheads. Both have gold-sputtered diaphragms (20mm) creating a professional sound perfectly suited for digital and analog recording. Includes a high-impact carrying case and mic stand adapters.

Heavenly Combination

By Wes Gundersen

Comments about Fostex MXL MR8MKII 990/991 Digital Recording Package:

I own the original MR8 (without phantom power and only 2 track simultaneous recording) and purchased the MXL 990/991 package with M-Audio's Audio Buddy pre-amp at a later date. A low budget investment which turned out to be a perfect pairing of legit equipment that performs exceptionally well inspite of cost. For hobbyists who aspire to make quality recordings without sacrificing studio perfection I highly recommend the Fostex multi-track line for a cost effective means of achieving digital success without complexity of production. In the same vein I found the MXL 990/991 pack a perfect compliment for vocal and instrumental recording applications. Can't miss with these two products. Get on it now!
