Can anyone recommend some sort of device that will be able to record my bands rehearsals? I tried using an MP3 player that has a record function but the recording was ridiculously distorted. I'm looking to spend as little as possible, I'm not after crystal clear recordings just something that can handle recording a full band without distorting horribly.

garageband on mac or sound recorder on pc. It'll definitely need some tweaking and won't sound great but it should be good enough for youre purposes.

Also sound recorder is not like garageband. it's more like a cassette recorder on your computer in that it has no editing capabilities or anything like that. as its name suggests, it simply records sound.

The thing is we can't use a computer we're hiring a rehearsal space for a couple of hours a week, I'm thinking more like a modern version of a tape recorder sort of thing.

None of you own a laptop?

I'm assuming you'll be using a PA? just plug a cassette recorder into the mixer.

We tried with a laptop and it was the same as the MP3 player as in horribly distorted. And also I don't really want to use cassettes I was planing on archiving the rehearsals on my computer with some sort of digital recorder we could also record our live shows which i could also archive.

What were you recording with? I use a USB mic for recording practices, and it doesn't distort too bad. If you want to hear it in a "live band" placement, check out "Spider" on my profile, there's no drums or vocals though.

you can get a boss micro br, which is what we use to do, just mic the amps, and the drums with the pa and then you run the pa's line out into the micro, as long as you sort out the levels it sounds good,
