I want to buy an analog recorder, under $100, and preferably as cheap as possible. I only need it to write stuff and play along with myself, so it doesn't have to be amazing. Suggestions?

Well if you like analog good for you, but low end analog trackers are not great in quality IMO...

I suggest something like the Fostex MR-8mkII 8 track digital recorder. You should be able to find them on ebay for around $100.

As for small analog units, look at these:

The Tascam Porta looks like a good unit but get some high quality tapes and a fair quality mic.

I guess Muphin isn't around to share his wisdom, I'll ask one question: "Why four track?" Unless you play drums, it's unlikely that you'll use more than two at time. And unless you plan on getting multiple units, I don't think overdubbing multiple takes is possible.

And I'd go with this: http://www.americanmusical.com/Item--i-TAS-MFP01-PAK-LIST

Tascam's a good brand, and it's a little cheaper than Musiciansfriend, especially since the shipping is free.
