Although most of us learn the ropes of music recording/production using a computer, there are many who don’t fancy using a computer for their recording needs, that is why stand-alone multi-track recorders are so popular.
Standalone or SIAB (Studio In A Box) recorders may look like a complex instrument to beginners but the fact is that it makes it easier for anyone (including beginners), to get the music recorded with little fuss. And all those controls (knobs/sliders) are actually quite comfortable to use.
