You're doing something different with the drums. The cymbals are crisper and seem to have more high end content. I tried something different this time yes. I only use a 2 mic set up on the kit. Usually an SM58 on the overhead. This time I used an apex 210 ribbon mic. But I didn't put it over the ki...

I go from the 388 into a Tascam CD/RW 700 CD recorder and burn my mixes straight to disc.

I never understand why people who are trying to sell gear like this don't take a little time to clean things up. I mean, look at the gunk on those heads!!!

I have a Tascam 244, 424mkII and a 246. They're all pretty damn good. But you might want to look into the 424 MkII if you want XLR's.

I record most of my drum tracks on the 388 with just 2 mics. An Sm58 for the over head and an AKG D112 in the bass drum. I record those to 2 separate tracks. Then upon playback, I insert an old dbx 163x compressor on the bass drum track and a FMR RNLA on the over head. Once I have the levels set rig...

Hey guys, Still no luck. I took the top panel off last night and jiggled the PCB's EVER-so-slightly. I'm not too comfortable with doing it. I bought some fuses and a d-mag last night so I'm going to change the fuses and d-mag it tonight. If it doesn't get better, I think I'm going to wait a month t...

I went to a friend's who has a 388 yesterday and he took me through the paces, I tried on my machine and I'm still getting no playback. The on...
