    Stay away from the Lexicon ... too many incompatibilities.

    It probably works just fine, but I'd be scared of it.

    The fostex MR8 is only 8 tracks, it will be very limited but you can still record some decent demo's with it.


    You can also try the

    Boss BR864 ($395.00) It is a little more than $300 but its under $415.

    Or you can get a Roland vs-880 workstation on ebay for about ($250) used.

    I suggest you save up a bit more and get like a 16 track DAW. 8 is going to leave you very little room to breathe with.

    Hope this helps.

    Bouncing tracks is an option but at a cost.

    If you bounce lets say 5 drum tracks into 2 tracks (stereo). What would you do if you had to make something louder? or lower?

    That would be very heart wrenching to even think that you have to redo drums, especially when you have tracks 3-8 filled up already.

    There are ways to fix it without sacrificing tracks, but it is a painstaking process.

    The funny thing about the lexicon is a friend of mine asked me about it and I felt so iffy about it but he bought it any way and loves it. His stuff sounds good but I still don't know if I could co-sign it yet.
