I bought this primarily to record my drum practice so that I could instantly press play and evaluate my performance. It doesn't disappoint. The recording quality from the built in stereo mics is great. If you set the recording levels properly you can't distort the recording. The various modes are also useful and allow great flexibility. Using the built in 1/4" jacks, I take the output from my Mackie mixer and record the signal using stereo mode. This way I can combine each of my drum mics as well as the music I play to and then take the SD card and download the file into a DAW where I can add EQ or other processing. I have also used it to record the stereo output from the board at gigs to capture the direct performance in conjunction with the built in condenser mics to capture the ambience of the room. I could go on and on but check out reviews on YT and you'll see what this baby can do.

I purchased this recorder from Long and Mcquade store. It founds good. Its menu is bit cumbersome, though. The store provides good service and is customer-friendly.

Purchased this industrial looking semi-professional recorder from Long and Mcquade music store in Mississauga, Ontario. Tried it for a couple of days, while the recording quality is great and the sound is a bit dull. This is listening through headphones. As well,the Menu option is cumbersome and one must make several clicks to get to desirefeature. The built-in speaker sound awful. I returned the unit to the store. Thanks to Long and Mcquade's excellent refund policy and their good business practices, they refunded my money without any questions.

This is such a useful piece of gear. The built in mics are decent, plus two combined jacks for two more. One of my favorite purchases. I've used this for creating multi track audio for podcasts, YouTube videos and classical concert recordings.

This device is an amazing little recorder . It has 2 external condesning mic's to ensure high quality audio recording along with 2 xlr inputs for direct in recording . This product is a must have for anyone who records acoustic guitar . I have got some of the best sounding recordings using this as my main mic. It also has a built in effects rig and other usefull feautures such as a tuner, metronome and a 4 channel mode so you can record directly in and externally at the same time (although I don't reccomend DI recordings) . All in all this prouduct is a handheld home studio and I highly reccomend it an an experienced recording artist !

I use this mainly for nature recording and family recordings. It has a superb stereo image and as a previous reviewer pointed out, you can add 2 extra microphones to add depth to your recordings.

Have had it for many months now. I use it for recording music projects and as a master track for videos I shoot. It easily adapts to a hot shoe adapter and sits above my video camera for these types of shoots.... easy to import into the computer and process the sound, and then line it up with the camera audio track.

The built in microphones work well but being able to plug in two external microphones as well makes this an excellent unit. I use it for live recording Celtic harp and nature recording. Visit http://www.harmancottage.ca/harp-recording.html to see how I use it.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
