yeah, this probably belongs in the recording section, but anyway...

it'll be hard for to find something for around that price range, but boss offers some stuff you might wanna look into. the problem you're gonna find with the product at this price range for digital 4 tracks is the fact they run of compact flash or sd memory, maybe a hard drive if you're lucky. but you'll find you have to upgrade the sd or flash card... if you have one around it's not a big deal, but i spent 80 bucks on a 1 gig flash card back in the stone age. maybe you can get a 5 gig for 40 bucks now, but either way i would factor that into the cost.

i also have a distaste for bad preamps in recording devices, so i would save up about 500 bucks for a mackie or something if possible, that way you'll have something that'll always be useful and make ya sound good to boot. a good set of preamps can't be ignored. but if you went with a cheap recorder anyway, you could always get a good mixer later to bypass the onboard crappy recording preamps and utilize the better mixer preamps.
