You know, Google sucks sometimes.
When doing just a plain old search for “digital audio recorder” the shit floats to the top and the good stuff just isn’t to be seen.
I mean, there are a shitload of really crappy ones at this nextag search result that Google pointed me to at first.
It was only through word of mouth that I heard about the Roland Edirol R-1.
So, I guess the message is, consult all major “sound” companies and see what sound products they create with your needs. Call companies if you have to. Google searching isn’t the end all response (“there aren’t any”).
