Re: field recorders
Is there any kind of portable reel to reel machine that could be used as a
field recorder? I think I remember seeing a picture of Cornelius holding
one in the CD booklet of his album "Fantasma". If not, then does anyone
of a good quality tape recorder that you could plug a mic into, I try to
avoid digital equipment as much as possible. Thanks!

I have to agree 100% with this. I have the same unit (a Sony
MZ-R700) and can't say enough great things about it. I haven't
taken it out for field recording, but I do record my guitars & synths
using it all the time and I love the results. I've been wanting to
get a decent stereo mic for it and I expect that the quality of this
item is what will make the difference between an ok field recording
and a great sounding one. The recorder is transparent enough that
if you can get a good signal to it it should treat it right.
