High-Speed Cassette Multitracker


The Fostex X-24 four-channel cassette multitrack/mixer ($369) offers a unique combination of advanced, high-speed multitrack recording capabilities and unprecedented flexibility in a compact, easy-to-operate package. An ideal next step for those looking to upgrade to a more sophisticated multitracker, or for those hungry for more professional features than their entry-level MTR provides, the new Fostex X-24 weighs just 3.3 pounds, yet offers a variety of features including a wide pitch control (+15% to -50%), both unbalanced 1/4″ phone jacks and balanced XLR inputs, input trim controls, four tape outputs, remote punch-in via an optional footswitch, Dolby B noise reduction, a 3-3/4 IPS tape speed (twice that of conventional cassette decks), an Auto-Routing feature that allows for the automatic setting of all necessary functions by simply selecting which tracks to record, and an Auto-Bouncing function which provides easy track bouncing with the simple touch of a button.
