So I bought another 388 today..and this one came with the books! Looking at the PDF manuals that are online, i would say they are pretty poop quality in comparison. I happen to have access to great automated scanners at work, perhaps I should cut this book apart and do a good scan... Nice. Always g...

Great thread on JHarv bringing the Akai back to life. http://homerecording.com/bbs/general-discussions/analog-recording-and-mixing-tape-and-gear/another-akai-mg1212-392873/ Couple facts I learned reading it as well: U2's Rattle and Hum and Billy Idol's Rebel Yell were recorded on these Akai units. ...

Thanks to you too, my good man. I was the producer on that track, but not the artist/songwriter (a fine musician named Bruce Rounds). Where is Cambridge, Ontario? (I suppose I could look at a map). I'm just south of Fort Erie/Niagara Falls in Buffalo, NY. GJ Cambridge is about an hour west of Toron...

Woh! Beck meets Pink Floyd! Whodda thunk it? I like the simple texture and the contrast between the distorted vox and the harmonies. What was the vocal chain like? This was recorded years ago in a friend's studio that had the Akai 12-track as the center-piece: https://soundcloud.com/nocturnal-produ...

how do you like the akai compared to the 388? i've always been interested in them since they're contemporaries. seems like the akai's are all broken everywhere and no one wants to fix them. I like it. It's similar to a 388 workflow wise. The 388 will always be my main machine, but this one is fun t...

New song to Tape Akai MG1212

I'm usually posting songs I do on a Tascam 388, but I recently got an Akai MG1212 12 track and just whipped this kinda sloppy song up today.

Re: The Parish on Tascam 388

Some old recovered 388 tracks recorded & mixed by our late pal Jay, at a tiny garage in Oakland... still not sure how he did it; it was almost entirely Shure microphones, and I think he used Kenwood speakers as his main monitors.. very Black Ark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHMuB_gsa74 https://...

Oh man! Future regrets might be coming your way. ;)

I have a spare under my bed that works just fine. I was thinking about selling it. But I won't let myself.

I have a Tascam 388, which is an 8 channel mixer with built in 8 track reel to reel recorder. The work flow using this thing is amazing! So easy to use, no re-patching, and a stand alone monitor section. And they sound pretty damn good too for 1/4' tape.
