Best Android audio recorder/sampler?

I'd been using Voice Recorder
to make the occasional field recording. I finally listened to them - and they sound awful. Is something better available?

I've recorded crowd noises, ambient sounds, and acoustic musicians, and it's all unintelligible watery garbage - possibly because this app records to 3gp? I realize that the hardware of my (rooted, CM7) HTC Incredible is limited, but surely it must be capable of better. Is there a program that will record to WAV/FLAC/MP3 with decent quality?
I'm pretty sure the video recorder produces better sound, but I don't really want to be "one of those people" watching a performance through an LCD - I'd just like to have audio mementos.
Don't mind paying a few bucks for quality.
(I have a Tascam Pocketstudio - it's hardly inconspicuous and I don't carry it around with me. I don't expect a phone to deliver the same quality.)
