Re: Kinda like a modern take on the Tascam 388 in a lot of ways.

When I first saw the model 24 I definitely thought 388. I totally get why they wouldn’t do a 388 for real again. But a digital match for the workflow and with CPU power what it is today, I feel like some sort of emulation would not be asking too much. I’ve still got my two 388s though, I’m dedicated.

Re: Kinda like a modern take on the Tascam 388 in a lot of ways.

I always thought it would be fun (in a perverse way) if they made a digital 388. Like basically as above, but 8 tracks, 15 ips all the way down to cassette portastudio emulation, varispeed playback and recording modes, and the same kind of track routing/ping ponging system.

Re: Tascam 388 effects straight to tape tracks

If that doesn’t work, then here’s another way that should work: Using the FX/aux sends, but return them down to the line inputs of one or two tracks, and buss THOSE tracks with the other tracks you want to submix down to two tracks. If you need two FX returns you’ll only be able to do 1-4 instead o...

Re: Tascam 388 effects straight to tape tracks

That will work for my separate tracks! Another question. I’ll have to try this for myself. But say I have 5 dry drum tracks (1-5) and I want to mix them down to 2 tracks (7-8) with effects could I pingpong/bounce 1-5 to 7-8 and run an effect through the send and return of 7, and 8 and get both the ...

Re: Tascam 388 effects straight to tape tracks

How would I do this? Use the access points, send and receive. Send goes in the input of your effect, receive from the output. NO Y cables! :alien: That will work for my separate tracks!

You could use the inserts however and this would record.

Re: Tascam 388 effects straight to tape tracks

No, the 388 is not setup like the above poster suggested, some mixers are, but not the 388. The 388’s inserts are called access, you have send and receive per channel.

Re: Tascam 388 effects straight to tape tracks

To my knowledge, using the fx send and returns will not record to tape in any mode. You could use the inserts however and this would record. Or you could use an external mixer and print the stereo mix of that to tape. XLR to 1/4” cables I think will work fine, depends on the source...I have a couple...

Re: power conditioner/power bars

I’m not aware of any consumer level “power conditioner” that actually does anything about EMI or RF. Most are a glorified power strip in a convenient rack chassis. I have no doubt that bad power can cause some audible issues, I’ve just never been lucky enough to have these be the solution. Usually i...

Not to be overly snarky, but I just typed in golden age 73 wall wart on google and I found several entries like this one:

Plus one on haveinc. At the time I built my patch panel and snakes they were the best on price for components.

Re: XLR Patch panel - to build or buy premade?

I dunno I don’t always agree about saving money on your own cables. The advantage is more towards custom lengths and such...otherwise i don’t have time to build a lot of cables. In terms of keeping costs down you’ve also got to look at quantity breaks...if you only buy what you need now you will pay...

Re: TASCAM 388 VU BULBS *all of them are out*

I don’t think it could be a fuse, IIRC. I think they are tied in individually. It is certainly feasible that they could all be out... I’ve never worried about it though. I have one machine with all lights on and one with several out...and I think one of my previous machines had all lights out also. ...
