Hi!! I'm having a problem with my 388. When I pan hard on any of the channels the signal gets dirty and lowers its volume. If I only pan half way then it actually works without any problems. That happens only in mixing mode, I mean, when I'm sending the tracks to L/R. While I'm tracking I am able to...

I found a belt and it was not my problem. Mine RWs and FFs (sometimes) but doesn't play. Each time a transport function stops you have to switch it off and on to try again, because if you don't the machine just doesn't respond. It also gets tired sometimes and shuts itself down and there's no way of...

You could try to clean the brakes, they are located under the heads. I'm having problems with my transport too. Mine does RW and FF (sometimes), but it doesn't play or record. The Capstan Belt doesn't look too bad, but I'm gonna change it anyway (when I find a replacement). I changed the fuses just ...

Sorry I haven't said anything 'till now! Thanks so much for all the tips! I think I'm reducing my choices to the two figure 8's vs best mic on vocals + figure 8 for guitar. I might add the small condensers in XY to get some room ambience too. Someone asked about the style... my voice kind of sounds ...

Advice on recording acc guitar + voice

Hi guys! I'm going to record an album in a couple of months and I'm already looking around for ideas to have it planned and focus as much as possible in the performance and not the technical stuff. The thing is that I'd like to record acoustic guitar and vocals at the same time, cause I've never had...

Bypassing Phonic Helix pres?

Hi, I wanted to know if there's a way to bypass my phonic helixboard's pres since I use outboard preamps. Maybe connecting my preamp to the -not phantom powered- inputs?

Thank in advance.

thank you all.

Seems like you all agree, that's cool! I had that doubt only because I thought the moded mk219 was way better than the standard 012s, but maybe it's not only about quality but color and feel, isn't it?
