A Note for 4-track Users

The more I've been using the Tascam Model 12, the more I'm realizing it is the Tascam 424 mkiv we've been waiting for. The only differences I've encountered are the Model 12 doesn't record to cassette and the preamps are upgraded (and each channel has a built in compressor). Unless there's a specific reason you want to record to cassette, I think you'll find the Model 12 to be a superior alternative to a vintage 4-track.

Due to the rising prices of 4-tracks (and the amount of emails I've been receiving from people getting burned by resellers) I recommend at least giving the Tascam Model 12 a shot. I feel like recording on the Model 12 is the 4-track experience with none of the headache (though some people would argue the headache is part of the charm!) Whether you're just starting out, or coming over from 4-track recording, I think you'll feel right at home on a Model 12. Happy recording!
