Daughter needs one to record compositions, mostly for contests and scholarship opportunities (not for professional purposes). She writes quite a bit for voice (we are recording an opera workshop on December 28th), occasionally for string quartets, even less occasionally for pianos.

Recommendations? Makes? Models? I'm told these things usually record on to little disks, which then one transfers to regular cds on the computer.

Don't want to spend over $200. Thanks for advice! \:\)
