...when Sony came out with the bundle package for the MDS-JE320 ( http://www.minidisc.org/part_Sony_MDS-JE320.html )with the portable MZ-E40 ( http://www.minidisc.org/part_Sony_MZ-E20+E40.html ) which I bought from Best Buy for $300.

I got almost 100 mini-discs full of beats, mixes, & music I've transferred from vinyl, this thing was ahead of it's time, better than a cd-burner if you ask me, making mixes with it was waaayyy better than recording to cassette; I just wished I had waited for the model with digital out on it, cause burning music from mini-disc to cd was a pain.

Anyway I've been having tons of trouble with it for the past few years but the deck finally stopped working earlier this year, the last thing I used to record with it was the beats off my beat-tape I put out last year.

hate i wasn't really around for it or at least old enough to be interested

the process of recording is so much better than tape and CD, imo. I need to get something with an optical out so i can just let it split the tracks for me.

I only do 2-3 days a week so I'm not as dedicated as I could be. My current job we do a type of programming but the platform is company specific. What I'm trying to learn now are the basics and we'll see where it goes

Pretty much changing anything that doesn’t need to be soldered.

and you had to license the tech from sony

whereas tapes and CDs were cheaper to produce from more manufacturers

It's pretty fun to fly.

I'm also down a bit of a Minidisc hole myself. I had one back in high school and loved it, but then I found out last year that people were putting out limited edition releases on MD like they do on cassette. I copped a player off eBay and have been buying albums on the format since then.

Now I have two portables (Sony MZ-707 and Sony MZ-E75) and like 15 albums lol.

Mine uses a gumstick battery so it's a lot more slim than my recorder that runs on a double A batteries.
