Roland makes the Edirol R-09 which works nicely for recording live music events, recitals, and rehearsals. It’s also handy as a songwriter’s sketchpad, ensuring that no moment of inspiration is lost. But the R-09 has many valuable uses outside of the music world as well. Students can use it to record lectures. Broadcasters and journalists can throw away their antiquated cassette recorders and use the R-09 for in-the-field interviews.
I would use the Edirol R-09 to help write the next great classic cowboy song… I’ve had this in my head for some reason:

Soft wind blowin' through the trees above,
All the other little cowboys,
Back in the bunkhouse now, so
close your eyes and dream...
