Re: Tascam 388 right channel

So I just checked and yeah it's happening across the full spectrum. Just replaced the right bus fader but it didn't help. I'm going to try changing the master fader tonight to see if that helps. Any other thoughts? I've had pretty good luck trouble shooting but swapping parts, but this might be the...

Re: Tascam 388 right channel

To be clear, this problem appears on all channels? Mic, input, and remix mode? Through the headphone out AND the xlr outs? Here’s a wild card, i know you said you replaced the bus boards, but several times now i have come across bad faders on these causing weird symptoms like “bad channels.” Maybe t...

Re: Source For Used DAW Computers?

What you say makes a lot of sense. I live in the Seattle area but I keep checking Craigslist and I haven't seen anything like what you're talking about... which I find REALLY odd--which is why I posted here. Is there another place I should be looking for the machines you mention? ---JC With my empl...

Re: Source For Used DAW Computers?

With my employer I have used electronics recycling services, they come and pick up equipment from businesses and resell or scrap or recycle. The company I went with physically shreds the hard drives (yes). So what that means is you can often find obsolete server/workstation grade computers for almos...

Don't get too into those vids. They're just Earthquaker promo commercials. The participants probably had some incentives to do them.
If you take the time to watch the videos its obvious that Earthquaker products are not at all the focus.

Re: Reusing Tape

It depends on how old the tapes are, how they were stored, what brand/formula they are, how used they already are... Reusing tape in good condition is generally fine and normal practice except when you have a band with a massive recording budget...though you can't do it forever, in a home studio sit...

Yeah I’ve been watching it all. I’m a big fan of Earthquaker pedals. They are far out sometimes :worthy:

Re: Tascam 388 - WEIRD buzzing issue

My advice, only slightly snarky...take all one spots and throw them away. Nothing but noise problems like this, in my experience. Get an isolated power supply and warts like this usually go away. Don’t know why it would only appear on track 5, perhaps something is not grounded anymore on one input o...

Re: Reducing noise from a vintage synth?

Yes that’s vintage synths for ya, especially the Polysix...never gonna be perfectly quiet. The obvious steps would be to turn off the chorus/ensemble effects (at least for testing), and then find the cleanest signal path (low vs high output setting, master volume l, vca gain) and optimize any outboa...

Re: Tascam 388 pan pot issue

I’ve only ever used deoxit so I would recommend trying that instead. But it’s also possible that you need to replace the pot.

Re: Reverb for Drums (Analog Tascam 388)

Hey folks I got an Alesis Wedge and I am running it through the effects send return of my 388. I’m getting lots of weird digital sounds hovering around above the effects especially when I adjust it down to a drier signal. Also When I totally dry out the signal or bypass it the dry tracks have a wei...

Re: acoustic meta-material

You jest, but as some flavor of a trumpet mute it might just work, no? I wonder if they could be configured into small cheerio sized units fashioned into curtains for windows or even hung just inside doorways, or placed inside or against doors, or as 4x8 sheets for wall installs. Like a lightweight...
