    Korg D4 perchance? Nice kit (got one, had 2) – better if it just recorded when asked (miss a button and it’ll record silence even when displaying activity or just corrupts it!)

    If the Tascam could take batteries, it’d be perfect for passive recording live bands, meetings, etc. With the quality too of course.

    I’ve got a little Korg digital four track, and yes I’ve used it and the Kaossilator/KPmini to build tracks away from my studio.

    This is a very crowded marketspace, surprised it hasnt been taken over by chinese crapvendors.

    Only 16-bit? Hmmmm…

  5. Dr.Arthur says:

    If that thing rocks some rechargeable batteries I’m all over it.

  6. Harrkev says:

    For the lazy, that is right at $250 in US dollars. Not bad. Pair this with a small microphone and a Kaossilator for music production on the go.

  7. Harrkev says:

    Ooops. Nix the microphone. According to the picture, it has a pair of mics built-in. Cool
