I was not trying to say it shouldn't be hacked, just that there needs to
be a large enough group of people who also see a need (or a why) for
hacking it before there is much support (so that you are not doing the
whole thing on your own). Those are all good reasons you have above (none
of which I had thought of) I am sure more would show up out of need too.

Nothing wrong with that.

It could be a good base, but I think you may wish to add an A/d converter
with more than 4bit sample depth (at least it looks like to me) and single
channel. The sample rate is fine (though not fixed but variable so I don't
know how easy to set to 48k or whatever), but takes lots of CPU as the cpu
becomes part of the codec. However, there are lots of unused pins (i/o
ports) on the cpu and it is open so the possibility of adding something is
there. There is a schematic in the manual on
for download which is where I got my info.
It has a display, buttons, battery, USB port, etc. I might be tempted to
add a second USB port (host instead of client) and use one of the cheap
USB audio ports (parts all in the USB plug) and some $5 mics. I just found
a great site for DIY mics That has some better pres than what comes with
the little electrets. (its on my other computer :P )
