    Packing 101 (read this if you want your recorder / mixer to arrive in one piece)

    Partly true, in my opinion.. But if it's practical to double box it helps.. The 3 units (Fostex) that I mentioned were sent to me, not sent by me.. I have integrated a real good method over the last few years; Let's say it's a 4 or 5 space rack mount unit: Wrap it, and also, secure foam pipe...

    TASCAM MX2424 SPDIF Not Getting Sig To Meters

    Hi Alan.. Hope all is good.. So I'm looking at getting my SPDIF from my audio interface (Scarlett 6i6) to my MX2424.

    TASCAM MX2424 Version 3.10 GB Limit?

    Alan? I can't remember what the max recognized gigabytes is when using V3.10.. Is it 36gb or 73gb? If I remember correctly, even if using a 73gb HD, version 3.10 will see only 36gb Did I get it right, or will it see all 73gb? Looked on internet, didn't find answer. Thanks as always, Dan

    Alesis Q25 USB MIDI controller

    Is there a "reverse" function on this controller? So that I can have the "low notes" be on the right, and the high notes on the left? Works nicely when using as a midi drum set trigger.
