Perfect first recorder
Minsk, 11.09.2020
I'm a hobbyist musician/producer using this great device for field recordings (ambience, nature, industrial sounds) and quickly record some musical ideas with my acoustic guitar or just have fun and record own foley samples, hit some things in the kitchen with drum sticks to create a "kitchen drum kit" :)

The preamps are surprisingly clear and quiet, I tried them with external condenser microphones - Rode NT2000 large diaphragm and T.Bone EM 9900 shotgun - both worked great for their own purposes.

Overall it's an awesome recorder packed with tons of features. The only minor issue is its strange finish which looks like a painting process gone bad.

Great quality, compact and robust.
Hooter, 17.10.2020
I’m employed as a full time brass teacher in the UK. I wanted to create good quality recordings for my pupils as in these Covid-19 times we are currently unable to blow in the same room as the pupils. The recordings produced are of excellent quality and the ability to add a touch of reverb to warm the sound enables me to produce good quality materials for the pupils regardless of the room I’m recording in.
The unit comes with a good case to protect it when shoved in my bag with all the other things I need for my teaching day.
I would recommend this to anyone looking to make decent recordings on a small, robust and portable device.

Hmmm ?
IS5000, 30.03.2020
As a filmmaker/videographer I needed a mixer or recorder as small, light, portable - and rugged as possible : the zoom was a third choice behind the Centrance mixerface R4R and Sound Devices mix pre 3.

I was recording with a sennheiser k6/me64 and soundman binaural (OKM II) mics

road test : after three days recording - in the desert - the zoom performed sufficiently … the built in mics were fine for immediate or spontaneous use but I found the sound flat, without depth.

The zoom is not the most intuitive to navigate,
recording to the xlr inputs is not as clear as it could be,
whilst battery power was sufficient without being especially outstanding.

The inability to customize file names is slightly frustrating and the load/start up time is also inconvenient, whilst the protective housing is useful for rugged conditions : ie dust/sand

Comparisons and previous experience :
comparable with a 302 or 663 sound devices : not really but it’s not in the same price range, superior to Tascam DR 40 etc - yes definitely
- is it worth the 50 € extra for the black version ? ( well I can’t complain, it was my choice )

But in reality it didn’t fit my needs : a light and extra portable 3 x XLR input mixer-recorder : a Centrance mixerface R4R / mix-pre 3 II ‘Hybrid’ - for under 500 € ? (anyone ?)

(Note : product was supplied at very short notice and the service and communication from Thomann was really super !! )

Huge upgrade
Aarnivalkea, 16.06.2020
My previous one was Tascam DR-07 and it felt like a toy when handled. This one impressed me with the quality. It felt sturdy on the hand and as far as i have played with it, i haven't have much negativity to say. One reviewed complained the long booting time and i agree. That might be a bummer on some cases.

The multitracker is a great tool for musicians of all levels. It really can be a ‘studio in a box’ replacing many of the components of a traditional studio.
