    I own a 64GB iPod Touch 3G that's not jailbroken and I wish to record a rock concert with it. I have tried this before using both the "Voice Memos" and the iProRecorder apps, but every time the iPod would halt the recording process after just a few seconds. My theory is that the music volume was so loud at the venue that the iPod couldn't handle it and this would stop the recording. I'm I right on this one? If so, how can I record loud live music on my iPod touch? I was using a little "button" microphone that had no input gain control.

    I recorded both The Prodigy and Pendulum with my iPod just fine, so I'm sure the sound level's no problem.

    Just ensure that the mic doesn't get dislodged from the headphone jack, and if you want to stop the distortion from the super-heavy bass at concerts wrap something like foam around it.
