see, no one wants to help you because youre such a cocky tool

but here, this is the problem

a fourtrack tape recorded does just that, records four tracks. any regular tape has four tracks, its just that in a regular stereo it only plays back two tracks. the other two are the other side of the tape....that is to say side A has two tracks and side B has two tracks. ever put a regular tape in your fourtrack and listen? side a plays fine and you also hear side b, in reverese. thats why when youre doing a transfer of tape to computer you need to mute the last two tracks so you hear only side a

as for playing in a regular stereo, it aint gonna happen.
