hey im part of a typical band that generates absolutely no revenue. regardless, we still record our live sets. we don't have the time/gear to mic each instrument with a mixer. last week i set up just a simple cond. mic with a preamp to mic the room, and i shot it into my laptop. i was actually very impressed with the quality it achieved, very clean and picked up all the instruments well. anyhow, my laptop can't handle to record for an hour at a time, so i'd like to get maybe a dat machine, or similar device. around $100 used would be great. what do you guys think?
