Yes, I already thought about it when the dcc, md and dat
where on the market. In our club we wanted, and still do, to
connect a dat, dcc, md and may be a memory card recorder to
one microphone and make recordings with it. At this time its
no problem for the hardware on recorder site, there are
enough members with those machines. However splitting a
signal isn't easy, although it looks like. I was thinking on
a transformer for this purpose. Jensen does have such an
transformer for one in three out. Expensive too and they do
reside on the wrong side of the pond so to speak. So there
are some other matters to overcome. Next to the price for
the transformer I will get an excessive ticket for transport
and import. After the recording you could import under the
same conditions the recorded material and make it visible in
a way. There are many programs for that, sonograms is one
option. The only thing why I didn't do it up to now is the
priceticket, I can buy a recorder for it...
