    Tascam 424 mki fast playback

    I've found another question yet again. I posted the link of those correction tapes on GennLabs, but I did some more research and found there are some speed alignment and tape callibration tapes on eBay for much cheaper. Do you think these would work...

    Tascam 424 mki fast playback

    Ok awesome. That's pretty reassuring. I was thinking about getting some big linesman gloves, but I think I have some work gloves that should do the trick if I get nervous. Thank you so much for all of your help. Is there anything else you think I should know before I start going to work on my...

    Tascam 424 mki fast playback

    Oh ok that makes sense. Yeah I think I understand the difference between Wow and Flutter Meter and a Frequency Counter. The Wow and Flutter measures the bearings and and belts and the motor. The Frequency measures the overall record/playback speed of the machine. Is that correct?

    Tascam 424 mki fast playback

    Ohhh ok. That makes much more sense. Let me see if I can sum it all up again and let me know if I'm understanding correctly. I have one more question, but I want to ask that after me restating everthing: I need a: - Service manual - MTT111 tape recorded at 3Khz - Frequency Counter - Wow and...

    Tascam 424 mki fast playback

    Ok, so frequency counter would output the frequency that is being played, and that shows what adjustments need to be made. That makes sense. So, would I need a different kind of tape to use a wow and flutter meter? Do they just measure the fluctuations of a normal cassette tape? Because that...

    One more question, is a frequency counter and a wow and flutter meter the same thing? I think I started using them interchangeably by mistake. Thanks!

    Ok, so wow and flutter are the result of issues in the transport system. Got it. I just looked up what AMSoil is, and it makes sense you'd put that grease on it to run more smoothly. I just looked up the ANT Audio program, and it looks like its a program only Windows can run. Unfortunately, I...

    Tascam 424 mki fast playback

    Ok, so what I need is: - service manual, - 3KHz cassette tape - Frequency counter - MTT111 tape - a lot of attention to detail And the "high side" of 3KHz is up to 3009Hz and "low side" is down to 2997Hz. I think I get that part. So, the MTT111 is a type of tape that emits 6000Hz? And I...

    Tascam 424 mki fast playback

    Ok so just repeating back everything you've said, the only things I'm going to need are: - service manual, - 3KHz cassette tape (and if anyone else is reading this, I found some here: https://www.gennlab.com/speed_cass.html), - a lot of attention to detail Am I understanding that correctly...

    Tascam 424 mki fast playback

    Oh wow. That's a lot I didn't know. I didn't realize that it could be potentially so expensive and time consuming. I know you said that some people think that tinkering around would fix their issues (I guess I'm one of those people), but based on what my issue is, do you think I could fix it...

    MPC 1000 JJOS 2xl freezing, not saving, unresponsive

    Hey all, I've had my MPC 1000 (with JJOS 2XL) since May 2020, and I really haven't used it much. I've only really started using it the last few days. Here's some issues I'm having: - I can't hear any of my one shot samples when I preview them - When I try to save a project onto my Compact...

    Tascam 424 mki fast playback

    Oh ok thanks! So if I got a service manual, would it tell me I would need the same tools as well as how to do it? I also did a google search for a MTT111, MXT111, wow and flutter meter, and frequency counter, but I wasn't sure was if I was seeing the right things. (A lot of them were talking...

    Tascam 424 mki fast playback

    Hi all, I recently purchased a Tascam 424 mki from eBay, and the playback for the normal speed setting is pretty fast. It sounds almost normal if it put it on the slowest speed and turn the pitch all the way up. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!
