    Tascam ms16, death of a channel

    I have the manual and if I know what schematic to scan, I could post it, if it might help.

    What Is It That Compells Me…

    Awesome to see that you’re continuing to bring this one back to life! My synth tech resurrected my Yamaha DX7IID that we once thought was going to have to be parted out AND he wanted to get into audio tape, so I traded him a TEAC A-6300 4 track auto reverse 1/4” R2R for it. He’s really enjoying...

    Tascam parts

    Sorry I haven’t had a chance to look at the Tascam 34B parts for you. I do know that one of the reel tables looks to be bent (right hand side) on my unit, likely from falling over while in storage before I picked it up. I have the head cover but it is missing the Tascam logo plaque. Pinch roller...

    Tascam M-50, Tascam 34B, Tascam 122MKII Parts

    I have these three units that are non-working that I’m willing to part out, just let me know what you need and we can talk.

    Placement Ideas for 61 or 88-key MIDI Keyboard With Argosy Halo Desk?

    I agree. That’s what I have done in my studio.

    All good ideas. I do have extra patchbay connections, I’ll use one. Thanks!

    Tascam M520 Story...

    I was Watching Dave Grohl’s Sound City documentary and noticed that he had a rack mounted tuner located in the center of his console between the monitors. Someone locally has a Korg one for sale and I was thinking of adding it on my right hand side of my console. Where would I output signal from...

    Tascam M520 Story...

    Good news! The free Tascam M-520 that I picked up, sans power supply or umbilical cable WORKS! all lights light up, tones work on all busses, STR Master A & B as well. I haven't put sound through it yet but it's looking good, just dirty. I don't even think I'll clean it up much after I open up...

    My studio build

    It was a good starting point and it also started me thinking about how it all ACTUALLY works. Then it led me to the questions that you and Sweetbeats were so benevolent to offer answers that WORKED great! I just removed the AUX 1/2 from the patch bay, went direct from AUX 1/2 to EFX unit, then...

    My studio build

    I love patch bays. I asked the same question a while back and the answer was... it's a personal choice. I did a diagram using illustrator but I can tell you, as I've had hands on and started wiring, quite a bit has changed, but it was a good place to start. Here is the one I did:

    My studio build

    No real updates but new photos tomorrow as I finish up more wiring on patch bays and outboard gear. Trying to make room for one of the synths I didn’t want to sell (wasn’t selling!), the Ensoniq ESQ-1 on my synth wall. Still much to do but day by day I am more and more in love with my M-520...

    Tascam M520 Story...

    Ha ha was just telling my wife that it might be getting out of control!! I like your solution and think I’ll do that exactly! I am super in love with my console and it’s the heart of my studio, knowing I’ll have parts for years will help!

    Tascam M520 Story...

    Found a few power supplies around but no cable. @sweetbeats I remember you had to make yours in this thread, did you ever find the plug ends or was the one you made the only one?
