Digital recorders


If you can afford a better digital recorder than the little Olympus 310M I bought last week, you might want to check out this New York Times article, Some Hot Recorders for Those Cool Podcasts, which appeared in the NYT Tech section this week.  Reporter Larry Magid reviewed three digital recorders, ranging in price from $350 to $499 (ouch!): the Marantz PMD 660, the Edirol by Roland R-09, and the M-Audio MicroTrack 24/96.

By the way, with a little finagling, I was able to import that snippet of audio I recorded in class Tuesday evening into both Audacity and GarageBand (thanks, Andrew!). First I had to download a little $10 software program called EasyWMA to convert the WMA audio file my Olympus recorder created into an MP3. Both Audacity and GarageBand happily import MP3 files. (Thanks to Steve and Andrew for offering suggestions on audio converter software.)
