Anyone here have a parts 388 they mig...

I think the drummer may have posted there,. . .not sure what his username is. But we would LOVE to actually get the thing up & running, if for not other reason than just to say we did it!!! Please do drop a PM, would be interested in whatever Midiizing gear you've got left! Also - did you ever find ...

Tascam Midiizer Users!? MTS-1000? IF-1000?

Anyone making good use of a Midiizer!? Just picked up an MTS-1000 not realizing we'd *ALSO* need an IF-1000 interface to Midiize our 48 & 238. . . Been on the lookout for a 238 in need of some love to fix up & use w/ ours, but would be cool to sync the two decks we're already using. Shoot, haven't e...

FS: Alesis MultiMix 8 USB FX - 8 channel mixer/interface

Snagged this before deciding we needed a bigger mixer. In great shape, one small scratch near the FX section, otherwise very clean, works great, nice & quiet, sounds fantastic for an inexpensive little mixer!!!

Whoops! Found a Hill Multimix 16, *almost* pulled the trigger, but realized that at least in the case of the one I found, no direct outs. Also, no inserts. . . was there another version that DID have direct outs?

Learned a VALUABLE lesson tonight. Drummer & I drove 2hrs North to see the Spirit Studio 24. Power supply was supposedly "professionally modded/rebuilt", but wasn't pretty & there was some nasty hum & low output on all the master outs. More than anything though - the thing was HUGE!!! We'd had measu...

There is a 32 channel M2600mkII a few hours away, same money as the Spirit Studio, but man, 32 channels is about DOUBLE the size/channels we were looking for. Needs to be able to be moved around as needed - not "portable" per se, but at least "moveable". . .

Thinking very seriously about a Soundcraft Spirit Studio. Seems after beefing up the power supply, its an awful lot of board for the $$$ (under $500 local). Would certainly be up to the task & leave plenty of room to mix into anything else we'd encounter down the road. . .

Price matters, but I'm not looking for junk. Soundcraft seems like a great way to get a mixer that will have ins/outs that okay nice with the deck AND have some mod/repair potential. Really not interested in any "budget" gear. Have heard some really impressive stuff done on the 238 & think it will b...

Help me choose a mixer for my Tascam 238!?

Picked up a Tascam 238 w/ capstan motor issues, replaced the motor/board & it's ready to RAWK!!! Looking to build a system for tracking my band. Want to make use of all eight tracks. Deck has 8 RCA ins/outs, so my primary focus is finding a board that has 8 direct outs and is built w/ individual cha...

Thanks! :D I think Lost Weekend might be my favorite as well. . . You're 100% right on the bass tones. I'd love to get more of a Stranglers "dirty bass" kind of vibe. . . From what I understand, we had some nasty clipping in the bass tracks & it took some Pro Tools heroics to fix. Same goes for the ...

A big "Hello" + check out my band's first EP. . .

Hello all! :D I've poked around on TOMB before, but just finally joined up. My band just finished mastering our EP - our first recorded material - and of course it was a huge learning experience. I had a few different Portas in highschool (mid '90s) and had lots of fun recording & 'experimenting' wi...
