Hi All,

I've searched the net far and wide for a what is likely a simple answer to a not-very-smart question.

I purchased a Fostex X12 4-track cassette deck (analog lingers!). It generally accomplishes what I need it to do.

However, and here's where I show my idiot gene, I really want to be able to record, say, a vocal to track 1 and a guitar to track 2 in a "live" setting. That is, while the singer is doing her thing to track 1, the guitar is recording to track 2.

Can someone out there point me to a product that would accomplish this? I grew up in analog cassette land. Do I need to drink the blue KoolAid and go digital?

Thanks for your help.
