Hi all, I work for a small non-profit arts organization and I got put in charge of setting up a new recording/amplification system for our events. Which is really rather unfortunate because I know next to *nothing* about it. Here is what I do know: We are currently using an archaic karaoke machine with a tape deck and a wireless mic to do the job of recording our lectures and at the same time amplifying the speaker's voice. We need to update to new digital technology to hopefully use some snipets of our events on a website eventually. The requirements would be something very portable (the events take place in various artists studios), would be able to amplify and record (can be a combination of components), and could download to a Mac. Someone had suggested using an M-Box, portable speakers, and a laptop. Any thoughts? We'd really like a recording device that didn't need the laptop because we'd have to buy one. Thanks so much!!! You'll be helping out a really worthwhile cause!
