So any ideas what I could use now please?
Tough one. 20 quids ain't gonna get you anything with which you can record, I'm afraid. Unless you really go tape and connect the mixer out to a real tape Dictaphone.
The cheapest you could do is perhaps to find an used (old) handheld recorder with a couple line inputs. But most probably an old laptop would cost even less...
One idea - if you have a smartphone, there are some gizmos that can help you getting the line out of the mixer (or of the interface, for what's worth, but makes no sense to use it unless there's a computer involved.. that's what interfaces are for) to it.. some on the used marked may be available for cheap. A smartphone is a solid state recording device after all.
