  1. Have used the Tascam DR-100 successfully for recording Music Lessons
    (Vocal, Piano).
    I am very Happy with the built in microphones but have not tested the DR-100 with externals yet.

    It seemed to me, however, that recording with the internal mics was a little quiet. For best results I now routinely select Hi Gain with the gain switch, anyhing lower gives rather
    problematic results on mp3 direct recording.
