A generous friend gave me a Tascam 246 "Portastudio" yesterday. So far I haven't been able to record anything except my electric guitar (when I plugged it in directly). I have a microphone and can hear myself playing in the headphones but upon playbacks, nothing has seemed to record. Any ideas what the problem may be?
Unfortunately, it did not come with a manual, so I've been working by trail and error. If anyone has the time, I'd be very gracious for a few tips or basics regarding how to use this beautiful machine from the past. Thank you.
ps - Do I necessarily need a type II tape?
