Tascam 488 'bounce' question


Bit of a primitive question, but I was wondering if the tascam 488 can bounce it's tracks internally, rather than bouncing to a seperate tape deck? This is possible on all digital multitracks, but as the 488 isn't digital, I just wondered if it was possible?

For example, allowing two tracks for the sub mixdown (bounce) channel, and internally routing the signals from the rest of the tracks to those channels?
