For free? A Tascam M216!

Who else could I find to share my joy with?

My first 16 track studio ran on one of these + its little brother the 208 for fx returns etc.

The 208 stayed in use for some time after that as a monitor mixer. Now it's with a drummer friend who occasionally needs a crunchy submixer to bus down mics before they hit her interface.

Glad to hear you got it for free! Just did a quick internet scope and they're selling for $1k plus :shock: I think I paid $70 for mine... what a joke!

The EQ is horrible in a really colorful, interesting way and the mid band can be made to ring quite a lot if cranked & overdriven, which can sound cool! I also feel like it's a great gain-staging boot camp. If you hate headroom, you will love this mixer!

All jokes aside congratulations and I can see how it could fill a particular lo-fi niche in the arsenal. And that color scheme! Wishing you many hours of enjoyment.

Cheers

Theo
Everything is going to be OK.
