Re:Yamaha N8, N12, or Tascam FW 1082
Well, I know it sounds crazy, but I have both the Tascam FW 1082 and the Yamaha N8. What happened is that I ordered the N8 first. I needed it for a recording gig in December, but Musician Friend deceived me saying they would send it USPS Priority Mail, but sent it Parcel Post so I panicked and ordered the FW-1082 from American Musical Supply, which was prompt at sending it via USPS Priority as I requested.
So for this recently session I used the FW-1082 and everything worked great except I had to bring more gear than I would have if I used the N8. The N8 apparently has great mic preamps and an on board compressor.
So far though I have not opened the box for the N8 and I'm in debate on rather to send it back to MF for a refund given they were late sending it, yet I feel like I could really use this gear. Does anyone here have any feedback on these two pieces of gear yet: Tascam FW-1082 and Yamaha N8?
