Need more than 4 tracks on Zoom h4n

Is it possible to record more than 4 tracks on the h4n in MTR mode?  I would think bouncing to on mono track would allow you to add 3 more overdubs, bounce again and add 3 more. I have a project due tomorrow that requires 4 violins, 4 violas, 1 piano and 1 vocalist. I cannot get the h4n to open the bounce file nor does it open when I change the name to trk1-00 (the default name for track 1).  I can do each 4 instrument group and combine  them in Logic on my Mac but I was hoping to avoid that. Doing the recording and not hearing all the parts is not ideal. 

An end of an era for me

Just before Covid, I invested an awful lot of money in a new touring flown PA - 12 boxes in total with amps and a new 32 channel  Midas stage box, Midas FOH mixer and and extra X32 rack in the stage rack, and new track playout machine. A British Beach Boys tribute band - busy diary and lots of live recordings via all the kit - then Covid arrived before we even had a chance to use the new system. The playout was a necessity as we've been totally live for  20 years, but the band leader and founder has Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Cassettes are not dead for some things in the UK

I was chatting to my son about the British really popular Police drama Line of Duty. I was interested as he's a Police Officer here. I expected him to moan about Police process mistakes, or the things they do, but no - his complaint was the interview recorders which are the latest type - solid state and  when you hit the button they make the long loud tone, before they start recording. He says they don't do this - just a pip or two to indicate they have started.

Allen & Heath GL4000, or?

Hi,
I need a small board for my home studio, I'm not using microphones, just synths and outboard.
These are the basics:
8 auxes (the more the better, the GL 4000 has 10 and I love this!)
at least 4 groups
at least 20 channels
good preamps
good metering is welcome
budget is 1500 Euro max
The GL4000 looks like the best option after looking at Ramsa, Soundcraft, Mackie and Midas.
I found it used from the original buyer, conditions are 10/10, it's just very heavy and big.
