Forget it. The ADC is limited to 5 or 8kHz sampling rate at 8 bit.

The data stream e.g. from the RAM card to the DAC is also not always
sufficiently fast. You might get spikes and interruptions if you have a
certain bad software constellation, some sort of memory fragmentation.

No sound manager as on the Mac and PC cards will probably not work
because ther're no drivers in the Newton format available.

I've met people from radio broadcast stations recording interviews using
MiniDisc recorders (stereo, 16-bit, 44.1kHz sampling rate, excellent
cutting possibilities, etc.).
