    I'm trying to find an equivalent part.

    I think the G2E-182P was superceded by the 184P and I found a data sheet for that here:

    https://www-user.tu-chemnitz.de/~heh...G2E-184P-M.pdf

    It is a 12V DC high sensitivity Form C single-pole double-throw (SPDT) relay. The "high-sensitivity" part just means it doesn't take much current to close the contacts. It is rated at 200mA to close the contacts, so you want something equal to or less than that. A bit more would probably be fine too.

    The data sheet has the dimensions of the footprint.

    Just fifnished a tune on the Akai. Posted in the analog recording thread.
    I have some questions... Maybe @deslog you might know.
    Is there a way to monitor using the effects. I like to use a bit of reverb while doing my vocal parts. But while recording, I can't seem to get any while monitoring.
    Also, is there a way to mute certain tracks. When using my 388, I can push the L/R buttons to mute cetain tracks. Like if I want to just hear how the bass and drums sound together, can mute all other instruments with the push of buttons.
    With the Akai, the only way I can do that is by dropping the faders of the tracks I want muted.
    It's a fun machine to use, Similar in work flow, like the 388.

    Good question. I'm not sure. Can you insert reverb in between your output and monitor solution?

    Can you use the track select switch at the top to turn off what you don't want to hear without having to muck up your levels?

    Nice! There is actually one of those close to me that I spotted on kijiji. He wants $300 cdn. Same usual problems. Transport.
    If it's still listed in a month or so, I may try to talk him down. My mg1212 is cool and sounds nice, but has a few functions that don't work. Would be nice to have a fully working unit.

    Hey guys remember that the mg1214 is actually a better version.

    - It has better faders(Alps) not cheap ones. The difference is completely different in size, shape and quality.
    - The pre-amps are upgraded
    - Some of the recorder mechanical parts were upgraded.
    - They added sync input at the front.

    It's really important that if you want to keep your Akai going that you have a salvage unit.

    The Mg1214 is different in size???
    I thought it was the same shell as the 1212, but just a different colour.

    I think he was referring to the faders which are different size, shape and quality.
