This is a really reliable recorder in the 8-track range. You're pretty well able to get down as many ideas as you need to if you're working on simple music. To have this recorder around the house is great for laying down ideas.

It's really small and compact. Very easy to take it on the go with you to record your ideas. It doesn't hold a ton of memory but as far as getting some guitar and vocal ideas organized, it is everything you need for a small recording session.
