  1. Hi there. I hear this is the place to come for answers. My band is in need of a recorder. We have a mixer, a smallish to medium sized PA and enough mics to start a store. We are recording in a rather large room (a basement). This is just to record our practices. Is minidisc still used? What about DAT? I was also pointed in the direction of a Roland 840 or 880 or that Tascam 40 gig deal. The budget is baout $500. We would like to stay digital and portable. What is the feeling about anything I've mentioned above? Thanks so much in advance.

    just to record practices

    I-Pod perhaps ?

    Roland/Edirol R-09: WAVE/MP3 Recorder
    http://www.rolandus.com/products/productdetails.aspx?ObjectId=757&ParentId=114

    it's small, simple ... uses SD cards
    mp3 or wave
    and 24 bit if you want

    but I don't know the cost of this one

    there is also an R-1

    Samson/Zoom have something similar

    if your looking to get into one of those sef-contained things it's probably a good time to buy as the way i hear it korg and roland are getting out of that market... just too much competition from computer/software...
