    Sony DASH! No kidding? What model tape are you using with it?

    What kind of DAW do you have?

    Unless the 3324 has the ability to switch to "-10" input/output sensitivity (which I highly doubt) you will need 48 channels worth of +4 to -10 bump boxes to go between it and your board. 24 to feed the machine/24 to feed the board from the machine.

    I'm looking at the specs. it says

    digital audio input x24...........specified input +4dbm.....gain adj. +10 to -6 db
    max input +24dbm
    impedance 10k ohms.......balanced
    digital audio output x24..specified output..+4dbm(-2dbm).when load is 600 ohm
    max. output....+24dbm(+18dbm).when switch is at unbalanced
    impedance.....less than 100 ohms

    not really shure what all that means.

    Great mixer! I bought one just like it about 6 months ago. I totally re-capped mine and did some op-amp upgrades in the first 8 channels. I'd recommend the re-capping but the op-amp upgrade didn't make much of a difference. My board is very quiet and neutral sounding. Wish I could help you with a manual but I'm afraid you may have to buy one. You can probably find one on the internet someplace. The manual is very in-depth so I would get one if I were you.

    I've searched high and low for a manual as a download...haven't seen one yet. I recommend you contact Tascam and get an authorized reprint from them. It will likely cost you little more than an unauthorized copy off of eBay or some such thing, and you won't risk getting an incomplete copy or a copy where the schematics can't be read. Get a used original or an authorized reprint. My 2p.

    I think you'll be fine on the deck inputs, not sure about the outputs from the deck tho'. I think that -2dBu unbalanced level may be too hot for the tape returns on the 320. It may work with the line inputs though.
