Re: The Tascam 388

Hey everyone. One little problem on my 388. One channel won't send, or at least won't meter on the even program outs (2,4,6, and 8) and the Right stereo channel. Any ideas on what to do here? Every other channel works as it should.

Beyer MC930 with loose capsule?

Hi, I posted this on gearslutz as well, just trying to get an answer to this before I drop a whole bunch of money on repairs... Does anybody know how to access the capsule with these mics? It seems like the capsule is just loose (I doubt it's broken) and this is resulting in reduced gain/low end. On...

WTB: 1/2" Calibration Tape

I've got an Otari MX5050 (8-trk version) that I want to align. Does anyone have a tape they don't need anymore? Would prefer not to spend upwards of $200 on a new one...

thanks

Otari MX5050 problem

Hey guys, Kind of an urgent one as I've gotta get a tape bounced off this by tomorrow... When I play a tape on the machine after a few seconds the lever on the right side kind of fails and the tape 'slaps' (for lack of a better description) back and eventually just stops. Any idea what's causing thi...

Dave Fridmann Contact

Does anyone have a contact for him? Please pm me if yes. Not sure if he does mixing work for people he doesn't know, but I'd like to find out.

thanks

I've had one for about a year and no real problems. There were a couple of times where the software was doing weird stuff and I had to reinstall a different version of it. It also occasionally causes my imac to restart when I turn it on. Y'know, the usual digital shit.

I'm using channels 1-8 as I/O to send to the desk, and then I plugged one side of the stereo out into channel 12 on my interface. Any idea?

What are the 2-track outputs?

The only other L/R outputs I have are called STD PLAY. Is that it? They are 1/4" jacks.

Ok my NEXT problem is...how do I record a mix back out from the desk to the same interface I'm playing back from? I tried this: Computer > Interface > Desk > Stereo Outs > Unused interface channels and I just got a loud high pitched squeal. What's the solution here? I know people usually bounce down...

thanks for the help guys, I've got it running now. Another question though...I plugged in my monitors last night, and I swear they sound different from the desk than they did going out of my computer. More tinny and a little less bass response. Is that just part and parcel of using an old desk? Or a...

I'd use the tape sends/returns. They're designed to tie to a multitrack machine, and don't really know or care about analog vs digital. The sends should be copies of the subgroup outs. The returns lead the the smaller channels in the subgroup strips, and should also be normaled to the line inputs. ...

Help setting up analog mixer with interface?

Hey guys, I just got a Trident 65 desk that I'm in the middle of setting up. I'm going to be running it into both a tape machine (which is simpler and I have figured out) but also to my Echo Audiofire interface which I'm not sure of the best way to configure. I was thinking to go Group Outs on the T...
