I spent most of the day split between bashing out another oil painting and trying in vain to get this minidisk recording again. I think the main problem is the battery is no longer holding a charge. With the little amount of work I get it to do, it’s hardly worth buying a new battery.
This is bit of an antique these days. In its day it was high tech and high fidelity. I still use it occasionally to record the odd choir piece. I’ve even used it surreptitiously and totally illegally to record a concert in the Albert Hall. Now it’s been more or less replaced by the ubiquitous iPhone.
