The other thing to remember is that many places, like Sound
Professionals, give you a 30 day money back chance to play with things.
Be careful though, Sound Professionals only gives you this on things
they manufacture or things about which they have an agreement with other
companies on.  If it's something like the M-Audio Microtrack, which they
do not produce, you only get store credit.  So, ask before you jump.
But, it's worth a try.

Gosh!  I held off on ordering the Edirol R-1 because I knew that
something better would materialize.  But I waited for a good while, and
nothing did I hear, so I ordered the Edirol.  Now, on the day that I'm
going to get it, I hear of something new and better!  Oh, just my luck!
*smiling*.  I do like the fact that the Edirol has no moving parts, and
we still don't know how accessible this new recorder is, but it sure
does sound nice.  thanks for telling us about it.

Actually, many of you may already know about this.
Sound Professionals.

Why settle for a flash recorder with a 1 Gigabyte compact flash card
when you can have 20 Gigabytes of recording time for the same price? The
new Gigatracker
gives you 32 hours of recording time at CD quality (44.1khz .WAV files)
on it's built-in hard drive!
We have combined the Archos Gmini 402 digital recorder with our high
quality microphone preamp to create a high quality digital recorder that
the performance and capacity of other digital recorders in the same
price range. You can record a little over 2 gigabytes on one file (about
3:22 per file
at 44.1 CD quality WAV file) and our tests show that the recorder will
record about 9 hours on one battery charge! You can't do that with the
Edirol R-1
or the M-Audio microtrack.
Of course, when you are ready to listen to your tunes, you can remove
the recorder from the Preamp cradle (if you want to) and it becomes a
full featured,
iPod sized player with enough capacity to store hundreds of hours of
The mic/line input and headphone jacks are located on the rear of the
Otter Box, so you can close the box with them plugged in.

My comments.
I have not played with their mike pre-amp.  They say the recorder and
the pre-amp are built into a water proof case out of which the
microphone and headphone jacks can be reached.  I was surprised as to
how small it was given that the entire thing is in a box.  It's
something like 6.5 inches long 4 inches deep and it is quite thin.  The
size is found on the web site where you can also find out all the rest
of the information.

Have fun.
