Each of the channel faders has its own effect send and pan knobs. It ships with a MB card which will hold about 25 track minutes in high-res mode.

Overall I recommend this unit to any aspiring musicians that are looking for a cheap and easy way to record their songs and expand their musical abilities.

The ultimate record-anywhere multitrack.

That’s why we arranged to get the MR-8 in stock before anyone else in the world. USB connection to computer works great.
