I've been using a Boss Micro BR for the past year or so, and although it's a very good unit, I am looking for something a bit easier to use. I originally planned to get the Tascam DP-008, then found the Zoom R8. The Zoom has more functions (rhythms, effects, etc.), which I do not need, so to compare these units on just their recording/eqing/mixing abilities, I'd be interested to hear of anyone's experiences with either or both, including: 1. Ease of use for recording/overdubbing, etc. 2. Quality of each unit's built-in mics 3. Functionality of EQ section 4. Quality of built-in reverb 5. Intuitiveness of each unit's menus 6. Any other features I might want to know about Most of my recording would be from my bass amp DI-output, although I might want to use the built-in mics for recording classical/acoustic guitar as well. Many thanks in advance for any help!
