    Hi,

    Is it possible to use old 'ministudios' like Tascam 424s as tape echo units?

    Did those things have seperate Play/record heads? Or would you just be hearing the signal going through the mixer, and not the recorded signal?

    I realize you can do this with reel to reel, bit what about cheaper stuff like cassette 4-track machines?

    Cheers,

    Jaike

    The Tascam 424 has a single Rec / Play head so - no, I don't see it happening.

    Here's the manual if you want to read more about it.
