My advice... yeah its possible, but there is little point. You'd be best off recording direct to your compter as you'll increase noise/tape hiss and decrease quality.

For what its worth I have a Portasound 4track, and its been collecting dust for about 5years! I use software by Cakewalk called 'Guitar Tracks'. Google it. It cost half what my 4 track did, you get 8 tracks digital, full mixer, effects such as delay, flanger, reverb, parametric graphic eq., Drum loops bla bla bla.

And it was half the price of the Tascam 4track! Go digital I say
