    i.e. the zoom h1

    preferably for under £100.

    what experience do you have with these sort of recorders? which can you recommend?

    This may not be suitable for you, but i've recorded plenty of sounds using my iPhone then used them in tunes later... There's an app called iTalk which allows you to record at 24bit / 48kHz (I think) and sync the recordings into your dropbox. Was a perfectly good solution for me, though if you need higher quality recordings you may need something like a Zoom or whatever.

    i don't have a decent phone at the moment...but if i did have an iphone, i've seen some stereo mic's that you can plug into them, quite high quality ones too.

    but yeah, what i'm really looking for is either the zoom h1, or equivalent in that sort of price range.
