Re: Minidisc recorder

Yeah, I've got a couple sonys that I use as scratchpads.  Really cool
stuff.  Now, if in the middle of one of my rambling practice sessions
something pops out all I have to do is push record.  I've got it all set
up and ready to go all the time.  It's a simple idea, but I can't tell you
how cool it is. :)

Every now and then I'll run through one of my old discs and find stuff I
had completely forgotten about, then have to relearn it.
