I would say all of you having this unrelated conversation/pissing contest are trolling this thread. knock it off.
First, there were the two two-track Teac/Tascam reel-to-reels I was formally trained on in 1984. Of course, I had already done some multi-track recording years before that, by rigging cheapo portable cassette machines together myself.
Then I bought at 4-track Tascam Porta-Studio One.
Then I bought a four track Tascam 424 MKII.
Then I bought an Alesis ADAT 8-track.
Then I bought a Korg D16.
Also Cakewalk, the audio recording software I bought, is configured in the way I described.
...and so are all the other pieces of electronics Ive looked at and researched throughout the years but didn't actually buy. I honestly cant remember any exceptions, ever.
I've been at this for 35 years, and I've yet to (ever) run across your definition of a track. (on a device!)
The manufacturers (clearly), as well as the industry people I know disagree with you.
The years of formal training I've had, are also in conflict with your definition.
Ive literally NEVER encounter any device that;s labeled as you describe.
Yes, tracks are sometimes paired for convenience, where say, tracks fifteen and sixteen are both on the same pot. ...but they are still identified as two tracks.

We've all used the term before as you describe it. ...when we're being lazy or there's a clear understanding that we really mean "stereo" (ie two tracks).

Now you tell me which manufacturers devices use the term "track" as you've described it. I never seen a device like that yet.
I have absolutely no need or use for this...so why did I just buy one! Smilie

Great price for an awesome device. I prefer to use this over recording on my DAW. makes a nice recording and a decent master cut. I wish I needed one... I bought mine from ebay for $130 a few months back. Sometime this has been sold for 100, but that sale is once or twice a year.... Its always over 150.

have fun!

Amazon does not collect the tax, but the purchaser still has to pay the tax:

Bought this years ago. Mine has a weird issue where sometimes it will lock up recording a track. Its random and I've never been able to figure it out. Might be the SD card I have since its upgraded to a bigger size but it's kinda annoying and might just be a issue with mine. Otherwise its a amazing little device especially for the money.

Also might be the speed of the card, might have to upgrade the card to a higher read/write speed. Also, if it's bigger than 32 GB might not be supported.

Yeah thought that too but its only a 8Gb and its read/write was higher then the stock card. It also only happens randomly, usually when I record a track then record another then record another without manually saving (which I shouldn't have to do). If I manually save between recording tracks I don't have a issue so that's just what I've gotten used to doing. It not that big of a deal....still a great device for recording.

Can I use this to record directly from electric guitar? (no pre-amps in between). I guess so coz it takes in mic, but not sure though... Anyone? Also while having this setup, the RCA out/headphones gives me the guitar o/p.. (I understand no effects though).

How does this Tascam compare to the Zoom R8 in terms of features & usability?
