Dave, I record live bands

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Overall it is a great product. I just feel let down by all the bad points.
Bad points:
It is being discontinued by the manufacturers and nobody tells you this when you're buying one. There is no external mic option. Flip support is pretty useless.
