Re: [podcasters] Re: Mobile Podcasting using the Edirol R1 portable recorder
- Tascam has a couple of portable recorders Pocket Studio they are called.
They will do all that you want them to and to it in MP3 format. They
discontinued a couple that are really nice and can be had for less than $300
on line. The one I use even has a built in mixer, limiter, etc. It will
take line level, if you use a DI box or transducers. It sounds like what
you are looking for.
Here¹s the one I use: http://www.tascam.com/Products/PocketStudio5.html
But I agree with paul...if what you have is working...IF IT AINT BROKE...you
know the rest.

abandoned that market. Not that it matters, if the recorders work
well, I guess it doesn't matter but I do wonder ...
The model that really matters is the one that people have in
their minds. All other models and documentation exist only to
get the right model into the right mind at the right time.
