I want to buy a new digital recorder. I don't need ANY of the hundreds of worthless features on most of the products out there - I just want four to eight preamps with XLR's and phantom power so that I can suck up the audio at a live gig, then squirt it into my PC for editing, mixdown and mastering. But every four to eight track recorder I see out there has all kinds of other crap I don't need, and why the hell only two or four XLR's on an eight channel recorder? Isn't there anything out there that does JUST audio recording, with XLR's for EVERY track? I'm thinking I may have to just bite the bullet and buy a rack mount hard disk recorder and haul a mixer out - I really don't want to go that route if I can avoid it.
