get a good bass/drum mix and pan them to the right or left then orient the 3rd or 4th track to the same. hit play/record and it will dump the bass and drum mix to 1 channel. record vocals over the first bass or drum track and you'll have one track for overdub crazyness.

use a guitar amp as a mic pre. line out from amp to 4 track and youll get a nice gritty sound.

buy a boombox for $19, get a PA (a shitty amp run through with a mic and impedance plug), get your levels right in the room, then record live, like god meant it done.

snowgoose works for tascam! nice try, but after this obvious street team bullshit I'm sticking with fostex...

telling people you cant figure out how to work the thing seems like a great advertising strategy. a 4 track where you cant use 2 of the tracks provides hours of fun while you try and figure the damn thing out.

fostex is for fags!

tascam 2488 all the way, at least up until i heard blood visions was done on that roland 24 track....

Tascam Vs Fostex = bullshit. They're both shitty machines, they do what they do, blah blah blah... Let me know what hunka plastic shit you got, what you wanna do with it, I'll give you some answers. The end.
