I use a Boss BR 80 to record my ideas and to me things sound ok. I'm not looking to produce a high quality demo or anything but I want the best I can get. The recorder came with Sonar LE 1X which I installed on my laptop but using it seems like a lot of work when the unit is a straight forward plug in and record. It has more built in effects than the Sonar as well as mastering. Like I said I want a decent result but I'm not sure which way I should proceed. Do I persevere with Sonar or carry on with just thr BR 80. Im new to this kind of thing so any input is welcome.
