    Anyone successfully synced two TASCAM 238 decks?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hi all, just like the title says, I am wondering if anyone has had sustained success syncing a pair of Tascam 238's. If so, can you share some info with me as to how you did it? which synchronizer did you use? And any tips or tricks for achieving said success? Any pitfalls to watch out for, etc.

    Thanks in advance for any info you can share.

    I have searched for info on this a number of times but have come up with very little info other than that, it should be possible, and excepting one person who was selling his ats-500 because he could not get the units to sync consistently.

    Peace...

    I remember someone having problems with drift because the tape stretched slightly on cassettes. I think they were trying to lock two 688s together. So it might be worth searching for information on those decks too.

    Thank you. I will do some more searching.

    Meanwhile, anyone else? Must be some adventurous 238 users here....
