Q. Your new CD is awesome and I love your drumming. You mention about recording ourselves on a flash recorder so that we can here what our playing actually sounds like. What are they and where can we buy them?

A. Thank you for the compliments Paulo. Flash recorders are utilized for musical instrument purposes and are designed to reduce, if not eliminate, distortion that you would find with conventional portable digital recorders. They are typically the size of a PDA style cell phone. There are several brands such as Zoom, Edirol, Roland, and Marantz, just to name a few. You can Google them, however Sweetwater.com has a great selection, with reasonably-priced units, and they are a very reputable company.
