Buy One!

I use one of these to record my individual practice, my band rehearsals, and when I was in college I used it to record lectures. The sound quality will blow you away, especially for how small it is. Every musician should own one of these!

Indispensable Field Recorder

5

Not only does this work for standard applications such as recording meetings in very high quality (24-bit/96kHz), or record live music, but this recorder is super useful for samplers that like to find unique sounds in the world. If this sounds like you, then you are in luck. The distortion is low, the sound is crystal clear, and the unit is durable. It also has 2 XLR/TRS inputs for external mics and instruments, and can record up to 4 tracks. This tool can be a workhorse for recording samples.

Great recordings on the go

5

Awesome recordings while on the go. Built in microphones sound great, but you can use any microphone you like. You can plug in directly with a standard XLR cable. Phantom power is built in. Record up to four tracks and store them on the included 2 GB SD card.

Awesome little portable recorder

5

This is a great little thing to have with you on the road when you want to record an idea or sing a little tune to yourself that you want to remember. It sounds great, it's extremely portable and easy to use and Tascam is well known for making quality products. I'd recommend this for anyone on the road, or anyone who just wants to have a handy device to record their ideas at the drop of a dime.
