I was thinking of getting a USB mic like the Sampson C01U like Leo talked about on TWIT. How would I, if I used it, record software reviews and still get jaws in? Is there cheap software that would do it as I imagine you'd have to then run 2 tracks.

What kind of multi tracking will you be doing?

Subject: [bct] Recommendations for a usable multitrack recorder.

OK, now that I've introduced myself, here's one of the big questions I

wanted to ask, aside from podcasting and all that good stuff.  I'm
looking for a usable multitrack recorder ,and I was hoping some people

here had recommendations.  I know the big thing is recording with
computers these days, but mine is too noisy to do that.  Not to
mention, the software is actually more expensive than some multitrack
recorders, and you also lose portability.

So far I've been looking at the Tascam DP01FX:


It supposedly has a one function per knob design, and though it has
menus, apparently you can do a lot of things without them.  Plus, you
can send stuff to the computer, so I could edit it with GoldWave or
whatever.  I'll happily listen to any suggestions, if people can find
ways of solving my computer noise issue I'll consider that too.  But
I'm sort of thinking a multitrack recorder might be the way to go.

Part of this is the portability, as I said.  I have a Sony MZRH910
minidisc recorder, and I like being able to just hook it up and
record. So I'm thinking a multitrack recorder would have similar
advantages. Hopefully, somebody has some suggestions, heh.
