    RCA switcher = rocket science?

    Your right if I open this up I’m sure there’s some way I can mod it to achieve the desired result!

    RCA switcher = rocket science?

    Well the thing is I’m using it in junction with the midiizer and tsr-8 so that’s 7 tracks right there in the dual bus.(minus 1 for smpte) and stereo ins add up quick. Basically I definitely have enough ins but I’d have to figure out if I want them as xlr or 1/4”, plus i didn’t have either of...

    RCA switcher = rocket science?

    the 488 I just upgraded from had a 2TR in input but the 688 does not. If I got a 1/8 audio to stereo xlr or 1/4 that would work. I use more 1/4 ins than xlr in my configuration so 1/8 to stereo xlr would work but that seems a bit much 😅 but yea I’ll keep this setup for now til I get around to...

    RCA switcher = rocket science?

    I should definitely give the insides a clean. When I bought it was very dirty. when I go inside I’ll post photos of the electronic guts too!

    RCA switcher = rocket science?

    The purpose I was going for while at fidgeting around with the switches was to play back audio from my computer while simultaneously running the mix out of my 688(midistudio), so I could hear the keyboard input from the 688 as well as the track I was playing back. I ended up using my computer...

    RCA switcher = rocket science?

    this is passive and you can get two at once but I think it’s not intentional by the designer because one of the outputs turns out to be really quiet and usually through one speaker. I think I’ll just live with it cuz it’s a convenient little passive box but it can’t do everything.. that’s...

    RCA switcher = rocket science?

    Guys this thing seems simple enough but I can’t get the thing to work how Id like. I’m trying to get input 3 and 1 to play at the same time but no luck. I spent like an hour flipping every switch and moving the monitors from monitor out to tape out. Anyone know exactly the way this works? I just...

    MSR-24 vs TSR-8 vs 238

    Hey all! Scored the TSR-8! I traded my dr z Maz 38r 1x12 for a ‘67 fender blackface super reverb. Then traded that for the tsr-8 hahaha 🤣 whatever works! Things a beast. Can’t wait til it’s implemented in the system. Next step is to get it tuned up by my local tech. Many more steps to go but I...

    MSR-24 vs TSR-8 vs 238

    Thanks for laying that out about the tape width. Didn’t realize the MSR-24 was 4x faster and a bit wider. That’s encouraging on the specs of the TSR-8 Anyone have any info on the two head system? I can’t wrap my… head.. around it. What are you losing out on?

    Loved reading about this so thought I’d share! Sorry if they’re side ways they’re not in my phone 🤔

    MSR-24 vs TSR-8 vs 238

    I wanted to add that I’m a big fan of the elephant 6 collective, which used the Otari MX 5050. I just read a chapter in ‘Endless Endless’ (a detailed account of their history) where upon recording Olivia tremor Control’s “Black Foliage” they would all go home with tapes then bring them back to...

    MSR-24 vs TSR-8 vs 238

    Dang that recording process makes a lot of sense! I like that work flow. Both the saving tape as well as the sequencing on the 24 and the extra takes on the TSR-8. My final mix down deck is currently a tascam 32-2. 1/4” tape at 15ips Not the greatest but not the worst! I love KGLW!! That’s...

    MSR-24 vs TSR-8 vs 238

    That is good insight! I’m thinking I want more of the wide tape width as I’ll be pairing with another tape machine through the MTS-1000. This gives me wider tape to play with for drums, or a beefy synth tone or whatever. Going to experiment. On the other hand it still puts me in a place of...

    MSR-24 vs TSR-8 vs 238

    Haha yup! I’m in it now. I’ve wanted to do this for years so here’s my shot 🤣 The plus is both units have low hours on them. But because they’re older they both need service. So that’s the next step! I have faith. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the MTS and very few failed attempts. So...

    MSR-24 vs TSR-8 vs 238

    I don’t have the cables made up yet so it’ll be after acquiring the TSR-8 that I attempt this feat haha
