[RDD] Easy Manual Recording

I engineer a station that runs on a pretty lose schedule with the DJs that 
have little or no intention of becoming familiar with or computer system. We 
would like to record all of our shows I think that only way I can get people 
to do that is with a button on the rdairplay soundpanel. I tried a button 
with a macro cart that manualy started a rdcatch record deck. The levels show 
fine on the rdcatch deck monitor but regardless of the input volume the 
recordings end up too loud to be anything but garbage. However if I do a 
timed recording they sound fine. I cannot do timed recordings because we have 
shows that can start up to an hour late, so I think my option is to use GPIO 
events to trigger recardings

So my question is, does anyone have suggestions on cheap GPIO control 
surfaces? Or can I have a virtual GPIO that starts and stops a record deck?
