actually i bought a Tascam Porta 2 when they first came out, and used to record bands onto it, live in my house when i was just a kid and very much learning. the tape wow and flutter causes issues on these machines.

then i moved up to a Fostex R8 which is a 1/4 inch 8 track, and used that for about 5 years or so. home studio level.

if you want some sence of analog with reasonable quality the R8s still come up on reverb now and again. i saw one for a grand recently. much much better than any cassette deck.
