all i can see is look elsewhere. the closest feature you're looking for is Line-In, but that's just for vocal things, like memos, or college lectures. No Mp3 player out there has the input capacity to handle band rehersal.
Hi I need something mainly to record band rehearsals. A voice recorder might be handy too, but I have good binaural mics (which need a powered mic input) Im thinking a flash-based mp3 player/recorder, but none of the info on the web seems to actually say any of the useful specs, making it impossible to make an informed choice. Shop assistants will know less than me in most cases, hence all the questions here..
I want something that can record preferably to wav through line in and/or powered mic in, but 320kb/s mp3 would do for either. I also need something robust. Is that an issue with hard-disc based recorders? Is flash more sturdy?
Ive had 2 md recorders die, and heavy bass frequencies (try it with a full ampeg stack..) cause massive dropouts even on ones with g-shock. Md is NOT a robust technology!
Plus being able to store any kind of file on a removable drive (win xp, sp2, all media players installed) would be very handy too.
Any help is greatly appreciated! I am on a budget but dont need anything else like photos/video, and 1-4gb would be enough.
