Tascam 788 and Outboard compression

Hi all -

I have a Tascam 788 Hard disk recorder which has a set of built-in effects. To be honest I think the internal effects are okay but not great and in particular I think my outboard Alesis NanoCompressor is better. The 788 gives you the option on mastering to the internal hard disk before transferring the results to a CD.

What I would like to know is - is there a way of using my outboard compressor to process the whole mix while still mastering to the internal hard disk. My old cassette based multitracker used to have insert points which allowed you to insert outboard units into the signal path but the 788 does not have this option.

Does anyone have any suggestions how I can use an outboard effect on the whole mix?

Many thanks
