Subject: RE: Tech: Zoom pocket studio queries
I almost bought the zoom, but decided against it and bought a larger sized fostex 8 track because the zoom didn't offer tracks enough to record and mix down--of course my original idea was to have something that I could always carry with me, so I don't use the fostex much at all--

If you are new to multitrack recording, one thing that is important is to break out of the "recording what I am playing" mindset, and to start thinking in terms of creating a recording--starting first with how many counts long is this going to be, what is my rhythm/bass going to be, what overall "sound" do I want--where will I put solos, fills, what will my intro and extro be--

There are some basics, but you learn most by listening to what others have done--
