Hi Larry,

I know that I sure would buy a accessible recorder that used cf or sd cards 
and recorded to 44.1k pcm wav files.  I like the WS320 a lot but would love 
to have a higher quality and fully accessible unit from you guys at APH.

Larry, I guess I started a flood here with this thread.  Whether you
guys can do this or not is obviously up to you, but it certainly does
show that there is a definite need.

That is certainly a consideration.  That would solve the storage
problem.  Of course, there would be some hard disc noise as the unit
spins up, but with external mics, this could be negligable.

Greetings Larry.

Why not build the device with a miniature 20/40 gb hard drive? I know
hard drives are less than adequate for outdoor recording (especially if
one elect to use the internal microphone(s)), but hard drives really are
the cheapest storage option, gigabit to dollar. You'd want to insolate
the hard drive with shock-absorbent material of course, and in addition,
may want to add a removable media card slot (in case someone needs that
functionality).

When it comes to firmware rom, you could stand to lower voice quality
some, say, down to 8KHZ, to preserve space (And by voice quality, I mean
the machine's speech feedback). An 8KHZ, mono sample should take very
little room.

There are 1-inch hard drives on the market, so size wouldn't really be
too much of an issue here either.

Unfortunately, that means some large storage capacity and battery life
which are still a little on the expensive side.

Actually, all you need in a recorder is the ability to record in wav
files,
that way, you can edit them and convert to anything you wish after the
fact.
