A couple of weeks ago I purchased a Zoom H4 stereo recorder, which is essentially a 4-track studio in the palm of your hands. After playing around with it for a few weeks, I must say that it has exceeded my expectations in every way (except for some user interface quirks). Having ~10 instruments and a steady stream of musicians in my apartment, it's amazing to finally be able to simply press a button and lay down tracks or record a jam session instantly.
I setup an account on ccMixter and threw up a couple of tracks that I've recorded (one being the some circuit bending that I recorded a while back). The other track, arasmas.ogg, I recorded the other day while playing around with some reverse delay and an acoustic guitar. It's trippy as hell and turned out to be kinda cool. I will be throwing the random shit that I record up on ccMixter in hopes of eventually being able to collaborate with other musicians around the world to produce some face-melting music.
(also, drop me a line if you happen to be interested in picking up a Zoom H4; I'm able to get them cheaper than you can find anywhere online)
