    Just Won on eBay - Otari MX-5050 MKIII-2

    Yeah I just won this deck on eBay for $51. No the decimal point isn't in the wrong place. You guys in the know please tell me I did the right thing!! The guy had it on a 3 day auction and it ended at about 4:00 AM. Poor planning on his part. Pic below. Shipping is $100. Should have been around $80 but that's OK

    Nice

    Hope it's not a lemon.

    Of course, you do realise that now you have to change your user name to A/DDON

    But why would you need a 4 track ? It is a four track isn't it ?

    You don't quite get the concept of Cool, do you.

    "concept of cool" ????

    I'm not one of those who keep every "cool" equipment in their house... (just because of it being "cool"....)

    strange.

    Sure an 8 track would be nice but a 4 track will be sufficient for my needs being a newbie to tape. The main thing I wanted it for was to track drums. 2 overheads, a kick and snare. I don't plan on tracking all instruments at one time anyhow since I'm limited to 8 tracks at once with my Aardvark Q10. After mixdown I'd like to send the stereo tracks to tape, pushing the levels a little, then back to the computer. I've got a lot of playing around to do (and learning). I'm really looking forward to it.

    Coolness is in the eye of the beholder and to me it says "cool." Nuff said.

    That is really cool. Something like that would be great for making fat drum loops and samples.
    You can get one pass tape at the tape for about half the price.

    You could use it as a mixdown deck, pushing the drums and bass hard to get funky tapecompression, and having the other tracks not pushed har.

    For example. Yes, coool.
