Re: recording question

Hi Jeff,
        I use a VS880 and love it.

        I don't have the CD burnier, but a a subscriber to the 880 list 
too can be a part-try going to http://www.virtualstudio.org/index2.html and
signing up.  If that doesn't work-and it might not as there have been
problems with the list server-there's a big surprise,eh?) here's what I've
found out.
        You have to mix to stereo before making a playable CD (you can
archive all 8 tracks to CD as a backup copy).  There's stuff at the
aformentioned website that goes into depth about the mixdown from 8-2 
using effects.
        The effects in the 880 are very good.  There are a lot of folks 
extensive experience in the recording world on the list and no one is shy
about their opinions.   Check the site out and if you have any questions
email me off list and I'll see if I can be any help.
