Thanks for the helpful review. One question: could the Line output be used to connect powered speakers by using a splitter for right and left channels? In other words, can the H8 serve as an audio interface/mixer?

Great article, but some quick feedback: Even though you put in parenthesis “sound pads” I spent an absurd amount of time researching what a “virtual cart” is. I think you may be the only person on the internet to write this combination of words in this context. I’m still not sure what it is. :/

I’m now out of time on this. I’ll bookmark this later to hopefully better understand how to actually use the multitrack recording feature, as I can’t seem to get multiple audio tracks in my DAW. I’m starting to think it’s not possible and that I will have to buy yet another sound card.

I am assuming that the term “virtual carts” is a virtually referring to old school live radio cartridges! They would house short adverts, songs, SFX, etc, nowadays there are devices with “pads” you hit to trigger them. I have a hunch that our author friend may have worked in radio stations along the way.

Steve, I forgot! From what I have seen on the H8, you need to be connected to your computer based (Win/Mac) DAW via USB for the multi-track to work. I use my H8 as a field recorder primarily, so haven’t tried it yet, sorry.

“multitrack is only available vía macOS and Windows, not with Android, iOS or iPadOS. ” If I want to record multitrack and connect this device with my iPad or iPhone via USB connection, it won´t work?
