Modern day multitrack recorders
A tape machine used to cost around $3,500 in the '70s. Not only are recorders expensive, they were also bulky, not exactly portable. These days, multitrack recorders can be just the size of a paperback book which makes them lightweight and mobile and don't take up much space.
One such analog multitrack recorder is the TASCAM DP-006 which is less than $200 and has built-in microphones. Other multitrack recorders available in the market include Fostex, Zoom and Boss.
