MD recordings sound quite OK but they can NEVER match cheap and simple
HD-Recording via a decent Soundcard.
If You really just want to record (so, if you do NOT need professional
FX-Support...) a AMD-K7- PC with a 20GB-HD 256RAM and a Terratec
EWX24/96 will do perfectly (and would cost about EUR 400,-)
