You shouldn't have too much trouble finding something in that price range, just search craigslist and ebay for "cassette field recorder" every once in a while until something comes up that fits the bill. There's a working Marantz PMD101 for about $30 on ebay right now, although if stereo operation is something you want I think that particular model might only record in mono. To get audio into it from your computer all you'll need is a 3.5mm to RCA cable which can be bought from Amazon for around $5-$10 depending on the length you want it at.
Solid, thanks

Just got graduation money and I'm trying to buy a weighted keyboard. I've been looking at the m-audio hammer 88 for a bit, but does anyone have a suggestion for one around that price range? I'm just looking for something with good hammer action keys

I'm getting back into trying to compose my own musics, here is a WIP of one that I'm working on.

Finally figured out how to get clean sidechain ducking out of my compressor without actually compressing the input signal at all. am daft punk now.

(you better believe im making all the no-hardware brothers jealous of my ability to create horribly mediocre and outdated-sounding house music with a bunch of equipment that can easily be emulated and operated more conveniently with free software)

dude that's sick, I didn't know it had side-chaining capabilities. I almost got a 3630 a long time ago when I was searching for an ac adapter for my alesis nanoverb, but I have yet to get any rack-mounted hardware because I can't fathom where I would fit it in my apartment room along with all of my legos and other gear lol.

makes great music for free

Got myself  cheapo stratocaster, cant wait to record some chords and do some eq boogaloo on it to see what I can make out of it.

I'm afraid this can't be played in clubs, it's so fire that lives would inevitably be lost

damn this stuff goes hard af son. Also, how's that dr-202 in the background working out for you? The second drum machine I bought was that same model but its sort of fallen by the wayside ever since one of the prongs from its stuffty aftermarket power adapter got ripped out and lodged in a power strip socket.

I love the dr202. I've had it for a few years now and it is my go-to for banging out some drum patterns because it's so readily available. A lot of tracks I make also use hi-hats from it.
