Tapeless recording. Tape might not be the last word digital recording. The first no-moving-parts recorders for consumer use are beginning to appear. Norris Communications, of Poway, California, is planning the first deliveries this summer of a voice recorder that uses solid-state flash memory modules instead of tape. Initially, the "SoundClip" modules will have a playing time of 30 minutes, but Norris plans to extend that to 120 minutes and eventually to offer a music recorder. The initial solid-state digital voice recorder is a pocket device that will list for $199.
