Is there anyone using a portable recorder for recording in stereo eurorack modular synth?

I already know there are a couple of modules (4ms and alyseum) available, but I'd like to know which models do you use.

Also, I would like to avoid portable recorders with xlr combo inputs, as I would prefer stereo line in mini jack.

I just ordered a Tascam DR-05X for that Purpose. I don't have it yet so can't say anything out of experience, but it seems to have some cool feautures like overdubs, timestrech and reverb.

I was going to suggest a Sony PCM-M10 but it looks like they are discontinued and any remaining units listed are over-priced. I have one of those and it is exactly what you asked for - no XLR jacks, stereo line in, really good quality, won't break your bank. I lost my first one and bought another. The Sony PCM-D100 would be a pricier option - also with line in and no XLR jacks.

At Loop 2018, this was Richard Devine's recommendation also in his workshop. Pricey indeed.

Even though they have 2 x XLR-1/4" combo, 1 x 1/8" TRS (stereo in), I was wondering what the feedback was from Schrank on the Tascam.

I'm just curious, but why do you want to avoid the xlr combo inputs?

As far as recommendations go, the Roland R-07 looks like it might work. I have never owned one, but I got to use a friend's briefly, and it was pretty nice. I was impressed by how small and easy it was. I've seen some negative reviews of it on Sweetwater, however.

A little bit left-field, but how about the 1010 Blackbox?

I have the predecessor of the DR-05X, the DR-05.

It's solid.

It's easy to use and quick to turn on.

It records in good quality, to where the noise floor is well below that of my synths.

It has adjustable gain.

I'm a fan: two thumbs up.

It is not a replacement for a multitrack recorder, but that's not what you were asking about. If you want real multitracking functionality, look at something like (at least) the Tascam DP-03SD, for less than half the price of Sony's PCM-D100.

For my own studio I have a Tascam DP-32SD in addition to the DR-05, and they both do a fine job. I don't know other Tascam products, but their recorders are the real deal.

Alessandro Cortini used a Zoom H2N and just recorded the room for some of his stuff.

The timestamp didn't work in that link. He mentions it at 10m 53s ~ish.
