what to use for record rehearsals and gigs ?

Hi !
Does anyone have clues on what to buy for recording loop-gigs and rehearsals ?
Have anyone used the 
Or IRiver IFP 799 ?
Tell me, are the dat-recorders outdated ?

Hi Max,
While I agree wholeheartedly that your approach is a good way to go,
I have to disagree that it's all that hard to emulate sounds that are
close enough to a drum kit to function in the same way.

represents what I found possible using a cheap multi-FX
(though like you, I mostly make percussive sounds just by playing technique).

To emulate a kick drum, using technique (& maybe FX) is a lot of fun,
and also leads to the discovery of a whole range of sounds.
...not "disappointment" ;-) , well not for me anyway.

neither do a lot of popular drum sounds, that's a factor that makes
emulation easier
