    Oh oh: Tascam 424 MKII, wrong MANUAL !

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I just bought a Tascam 424 MKII, and the dang manual is for a MKIII. I can't even play a stereo cassette on it without the thing sounding like the soundtrack from a Godzilla movie. Where can I get a manual?

    Thanks

    Hope you got Adobe.
    Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital recording is a pretty neat idea.

    Arrow Yeah, cool link. Another bootleg manual. Ha.

    Anyway, quick tip, the normal stereo cassette will play in NORMAL tape speed on Tracks 1 & 2 only, with Tracks 3 & 4 off, & DBX off.

    Wink

    Thanks for that too, RP. Stick around, I'm just starting.

    Fortunately, I also have the instructional video, which seems well done, from 5 minutes watching.

    I'm going to be doing an Appalachian Hillbilly rap/disco thing, in French.

    I might be wrong but, that will void the warranty!!

    Good luck with your sound.

    ""Another bootleg manual.""

    Oh.... I see.....

    Can the manuals still be purchased for these machines? The machine is discontinued.... never occurred to me that anyone would care about the intellectual property rights for the manual for a dead duck, but I don't know.... if I can buy one, I will.

    I was mainly concerned about...... (blush.....) whether or not these things - I can hardly say it - contained a driver, or need to run through an external one.

    There, I said it.

    By the way, thanks for all the help, everyone.

    Tascam will sell you a manual. They also offer many free downloads in PDF format. (but not the 424 MkII) Even though their bbs is gone, the rest of the site is still active.

    Ahhh Mr Verner.

    Good to see you and good to see you popping in with some help.


    I was pretty impressed with your article from Popular Electronics... I actually remember seeing that article when it first came out.
    Hopefully you are busy conjuring some other technically ghoulish illusions for the up coming Halloween.

    Fun stuff man!
