I'm looking for a small MP3 player with a good voice recording facility. I'm probably expecting too much but here goes... I'd like it to be able to : 1. record musical ideas when I'm out and about. 2. record my band's rehearsals/gigs - loud indie rock. Therefore I'd like it to be small enough to carry in my pocket and be able to cope with a very wide range of input levels. The Cowon iAudio U3 seems quite well featured in that you can set the recording quality and input level and even use the line in as an external mic input. It's nice and small and I could also use it to transfer files - bonus. Can anyone tell me if it is any good ? Since the input level is adjustable, does this mean it does not have any agc or is it just limited in its range ? Any other recorder recommendations and experience welcome. I know MAudio and Edirol make some good kit but they're a bit big and expensive.
