    I did read the manual (cross my fingers)

    I recorded on track 1 but do not here the tape playback

    The vu meters move which is a good sign but dont hear a thing.

    I pressed the red button to arm track1 and press the rec function to record track 1

    press rec/play to recor------d rewind tape

    But no playback
    should I hear the playback in phones

    Is there a button Im not pressing

    Any info would be greatfully appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    Arrow Yeah!

    Now that you've received help from members of this board, you're obligated to post a song, mix, production, or clips of your latest fare.

    The 388 is a well equipped and nice sounding Portastudio. People who like'm really love'm, for the most part.

    You're welcome! Great choice in recorders, especially for a starter kit!

    Cool Tascam 388 syncing

    I thank you all for the motivation!!!

    This is a Powerful community here!!

    I will definitely post music

    Here's what Im using

    Cakewalk Sonar
    Motu Micro express with SMPTE MTC
    Tascam 388 ( of course)


    The goal: I Just want to get my sequencer (Cakewalk Sonar) to start when I press play on the Tascam 388

    I would like to use my external keyboards through Cakewalk Sonar using MIDI.

    I was trying to setup smpte using my MOTU micro express unit

    the signal from the smpte (stripe) works

    i recorded the tone on track 8 ( DBX OFF) through my Motu device

    I played back the reel back .... the tone is there!!!

    I put the audio 1/4 jack into Smpte (IN) from back of track 8 (tape out)


    The Motu device (micro express) will not pick up a signal from track 8

    I even checked the cords to hear a signal ....audio signal works

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    im open to alternate suggestions as well

    thanx in advance
    YJ
