Griffin iTalk vs. Belkin voice recorder for 4G iPod

which one would have better sound quality when recording live rehearsals of bands (not expecting a great sound, but which of the two would be best)?

which one can be transferred onto my mac into WAV files (or other files such as AIFF)??

The Griffin iTalk will be better, but keep in mind how bad the sound will be from either recorded like this.

I agree with HowEver. Before purchasing my iTalk, I've read reviews that consistently say that the iTalk is better. But yeah, the recording quality is nowhere near what one would want for a demo, but for rehearsals it will do.

I have the Belkin and it sounds pretty decent....why not plug in a better mic into the line in?

- nevermind - I didn't see 4G....I have the 5G iPod with the Belkin TuneTalk Stereo.

Keep in mind, the recording ability of the 4G iPod is set by *Apple*, not the manufacturers of the recording device. Apple limited the recording ability of the 4G iPods to *very* low quality - really only suitable for voice recordings.
