    Parting with gear is such sweet sorrow...

    Well, I said goodbye to my favorite piece of gear today and watched my 388 leave to go to it's new home. I was hesitant on selling it, but I knew in all reality I wouldn't really ever use it again. If I ever do any personal stuff, my pair of 424mkII will do the job handily, as I won't be...

    Boss GT70 vs. Vox Tonelab EX

    What do you guys think is a better overall package: Boss ME-70 or VOX Tonelab EX? I've got the ME-70 and have enjoyed it, but something about a tube driven amp modeler appeals to me. I've heard some of the various distortions through the Tonelab and I must say I like 'em. There are also more...

    Thinking of pulling the trigger...

    I've been mulling over the idea of getting a bigger mixer to handle the various equipment that I have, other than the reel decks and usual microphones. I stumbled upon this: Tascam M3700 32 channel (mixer) mixing console I'm just waiting on more info from the seller. I have tried to find as...

    38 and TSR8 rack ears

    Does anyone have or created a template for fabricating the rack ears for the 38 and TSR8? I'd like to see if the guys where I work can fabricate a couple pairs for me.

    Striping a tape for SMPTE

    Ok, now that I have the cable finally constructed (YES!), the MTS-1000 works like a dream with the TSR-8. I keep giggling like a school girl each time I change a function and it affects the deck.:D I've tried setting the time format (NDF 30) and giving a start time. I've set channel 8 on the...

    I did it!!

    Ok, so it's not an earth changing event, but I finally assembled the DB15 cable I needed to connect my TSR-8 to my MTS-1000.:D I decided to bite the bullet and see if I could manage soldering the connectors. After buying a pencil style soldering iron and something to hold the tiny damn...

    1st real attempt

    I'm working on recording some friends and this is the most cohesive take we've gotten so far. It's still a bit rough. There was alot of construction going on in the studio that day so everyone (including me) was tired. I broke up the bandmates in order to record them and it threw them for a...

    Kind of a newb question

    I've recently started recording with Reaper (other than just tinkering with it) and have a question or two. While I record, should I have the ReaComp set up for the bass track or does it even do such a thing during recording? I'm not sure if it's a mix only type of plugin or not. I'm new to...

    Tascam MD-801R(mkII) eject problem

    I've got a MD-801R(mkII) deck that has worked pretty well until recently. I've noticed that it struggles to eject (and sometimes load) a MD. I've popped the top on the deck and given a gentle boost to the guides as it loads/ejects and it works fine. Playback/recording still work perfectly...

    Going from TSR-8/38 w/ M2516 into a US-1641

    I know this should probably go in the "Tascam" forum, but I figure I might get better response from the seasoned recordists here.:p I just obtained a Tascam US-1641. I installed the drivers and hooked it up to my laptop, tested it with Reaper, and it works beautifully. Now, comes the...

    Tascam 388 issue...part 2

    Ok, this is more or less a continuation of https://homerecording.com/bbs/showthread.php?t=310516 After doing some more tinkering with the 388, I've noticed that nothing will pan to the right, it just mutes everything. I've got both of the master buss faders up and the channels assigned...

    Pre-recorded open reel tape prices...

    Does anyone have any idea what the price of a prerecorded reel was back when they were in production? I'm curious as how the cost of buying an album on reel differed from buying it's vinyl counterpart. Makes me wonder what the cost would be today. I know TTP has their 15 ips. albums for about...

    388 mic pres

    ARE FREAKIN' AWESOME!:D Now, having made that statement, let me clarify. I haven't done any real recording with the 388 as of yet. I've piddled around with stuff here and there, but nothing substantial. However, I got curious tonight about my SM7b mic. My (favorite, for now) M-2516 needed...
