Is there a cheap mp3 player that has a line in so i can connect it to the sound mixer? this way i wouldn't need to take my laptop to the rehearsal room every time i want to record an idea for a song, and i also need a new mp3 player....

Well it's not cheap but an iPod Classic will do that through the headphone jack with the Voice Memo function (intended for use with a headset/computer mic). I run a lot of rough mixes from my portastudio into it, and do DI guitar riff/song idea demos too.

Hmm, would this work coming straight out of a mixer as a means of getting a rough recording of live shows?

Unfortunately no, it can't handle proper line-in. I use the headphone jacks and a weird cable (inline controls, probably had a mic attachment) to make the voice memo thing actually show up.

I actually probably should take back the recommendation of this method in the thread altogether, I just messed with it and it doesn't work the way he wants it to. Sorry!

I think people round here often tote the ability of the Zoom H2. Maybe not "cheap" but it looks like some kind of goddamn masterpiece of a recorder...

The zoom thing is way to expensive. I just want something that i can plug to mix board, i don't mics. It just needs a line in and to record at a decent quality.
I've used a mini disk player, but it sucks to have to send the recording in real time to the pc....
