Our music dept. is looking for a few recorders for the kids to use when they go off in break-out groups. The only thing I have found so far is http://bigbenaudio.co.uk/p793/Olympu...SB-Connection- which is the right sort of price and looks easy to use. Sound quality isn't important as it will be garbage in - garbage out.
Has anyone come across anything else we could consider?
We used Speak IT Realy helpful.
They have lots of ideas and a great selection.
We went for the Olympus WS-210S Digital Voice Recorder & Mass Storage Device - plugs in and works like a pen drive.
For our better stuff we are going for Olympus WS-311M or one of the DS range, with a good quaility digital microphone - once again works like a pen drive - no software to install.
Hope this helps........

Zoom H2 Portable Recorder. with 512mb SD card, Tripod and Half Price Headphones offer!!!*::*Digital Recorder*::*Planet Gizmo
This is the a very good reorder and a doddle to use. Sound quality is excellent.
Simplicity is a beautiful thing.
It's a simple idea: provide brilliant stereo recording in an easy-to-use, ultra-portable device. Now everyone can record pristine audio in an infinite variety of applications. From seminars and conferences, to electronic news gathering (ENG) and podcasting, to musical performances, songwriting sessions and rehearsals, the H2 provides amazing recording quality. And no matter what kind of music you perform or the instrument you play, the H2 can effortlessly record it in high-quality stereo.
With its built in USB 2.0 interface, you can even use the H2 as a USB mic and record directly to your favorite digital audio software!

You can turn an ipod video into an audio recording device with the appropriate microphone.
I've not long ago bought one of the red ones on this page. The only issue so far is that the level with the internal mic is a bit low when doing dialogue recordings for ML exams. We've now been told that the board is sticking with cassettes for a while. We'll keep looking, and the Zoom H2 looks promising!
Id go for a Zoom product, the H2 listed above is good by the sounds of it but I've seen a H4 - Samson - Zoom - H4 and thats the dogs bananas. Looking to get one of them for music / general use say recording concerts, music groups, speeches etc

Thanks for all the ideas guys. Sorry about the link. I have one of the Zoom H2s and really pleased with it but too expensive for this project. I'll take a close look at the other stuff tomorrow. I'm off to bed
Resurrecting this thread since it is over a year old - are the products recommended here still worth it, or have better ones come out since? We need something for MFL orals and music practicals, so quality is important...
