Being new to recording, this thread has been very helpful!

I'm recording using a Tascam Portastudio 424 MK2 (cassette) and then dumping it into a Korg D1200. As expected, I'm getting a lot of noise in the initial cassette recording. Some of it is welcome aesthetically, but at times it can be way too much. It was mentioned earlier in this thread that using a compressor when tracking can cut the noise floor for tape? Would this work in my situation? If so, how can I go about it? Ultimately I'd rather keep the noise than loose the dynamics.
