    how much is it? I cant see the price.

    Nutek decent mics/recording equipment can make the difference between good and great production

    mini disc?? i reckon you could get good results with a decent mic and a portable recording interface

    in fact... you may even get fairly good results with just the mini disc, a good dynamic mic and a 6mm-3.5mm jack adapter..... guess it depends on what your recording, and how important the quality needs to be
