    Newest Guitar Multi-Effects Processors, floor/rack, etc.

    Thanks, I'll look into the Korg stuff, never even tried any of it over the years. I am worried about buying more TC Electronic after they screwed all of us on the G-System by not supporting it. With the editor, it's not useless, but it's definitely harder to use. Korg has screwed me a few times...

    Newest Guitar Multi-Effects Processors, floor/rack, etc.

    I’m now looking at the TC Electronic Plethora X5 for simplifying the old style pedal board concept with a little bit of programmability, but not overly complex. Price is about $100 more than I want to spend but… Watching more videos first. Anyone own one? Thoughts?

    Newest Guitar Multi-Effects Processors, floor/rack, etc.

    Thanks Ujn, I think why I’ve been through several of these kinds of units over the years is that they tend to be gadgety in the end instead of something I really use. A way of saving a set up on a pedal board for specific songs I like to play. I went through my analog/boutique pedal phase back...

    Newest Guitar Multi-Effects Processors, floor/rack, etc.

    I recently sold my Zoom G5n. It sounded okay, was decently easy to set up with the desktop software but it just didn’t WOW me. What is the best available today? What is the best but most affordable today? ($300-500 price range) What offers the most iconic ”patches”, to say, play specific songs...

    Tascam M520 Story...

    Sweetbeats - I would pay for that online class. I have read over the manual but have yet to install my M-520 into my studio to “use” it, when I do, I’ll re-read the manual but something tells me, I’ll still be a little confused on many parts of this complex and very versatile console! let us...

    New-to-me gear: Tascam MS-16 1” 16 channel recorder

    So, The guy I bought my Tascam M-520 from called the other day and sold me the near mint Tascam MS-16 with DBX units, auto locator and remote with rolling stand, some patch bays and 4 unused reels of 3M 996 mastering tape for $400! I’m likely crazy for going down this road but it’s sure...

    Good to know you are also into the 244! We have good taste, huh? Ha ha 🤣 OR we’re gluttons for punishment 🤣 The belt and pinch roller kits are on the way, I hope to open it up this weekend to get it cleaned up and ready for them. Then I can fully test it. Thanks for the luck wishing, I may need...

    Tascam 244 recent purchase/new project

    As if my burgeoning interest in vintage Tascam equipment with the M-520 and 388 Studio 8 wasn’t enough, I just bought a Tascam 244 4 track cassette portastudio! I got it at an estate sale. The capstan pinch roller was GOO, transport belt and capstan belts GOO, and the idler tires GOO. I have...

    Audio Leader & Tape/Alcohol/Swab Dispenser… Check!

    Good thing I made it for my studio and not yours! :) ha ha This fits my needs based on my experience, and the fact that I’m not doing full-time professional work but just adding leader tape to new reels, I think the splicer there works well for me. If I was doing a lot of editing on a machine...

    Audio Leader & Tape/Alcohol/Swab Dispenser… Check!

    Been looking for one of the old 3m ones that we used to use in the studio, but none to be found and if I could, they go for a lot of $$! So… I made my own that fits my little 3” reels. I designed it to fit a little alcohol pump dispenser in the back with swab storage for cleaning too! Black...

    Tascam M520 Story...

    Yeah, I bought that book too, no mention of the M-520 yet but it's a great book with SOOO much good information, I've been learning a lot from it and I really appreciate that they don't try to get too technical (electrical engineer-style technical) with it, but very practical information. Plus...

    Tascam M520 Story...

    So, one of the books that ordered, “Sound Studio Production Techniques“ (Link listed above), arrived yesterday and I was blown away to find out that in chapter 4, Mixing-Console Architecture, he uses the Tascam M-520 as his example throughout the chapter and future chapters on everything from...

    Tascam 388 Track 1 and 8 weak muddy playback

    Thanks @sweetbeats I thought I'd looked all over for info on the 388, and did not discover your "story" on the 388. That's one of the reasons I made the post about being crazy buying one that you were so kind to help me on. I have the thread open now and will read it in entirety before asking...

    Tascam 388 Track 1 and 8 weak muddy playback

    Now that we have the hijacking dilemma solved 🤪… Would using LPR35 or MDS-36 require re-biasing and how would one be able to tell if it did? I’m going to exercise all the switches and pots on my console to see if it helps my issues. I DID notice that it seemed to really like to get warmed up...

    Tascam 388 Track 1 and 8 weak muddy playback

    Hey, @bmacca88 Welcome to the forum! And thanks @sweetbeats for getting involved, I know you know your stuff on 388s! I purchased my 388 a few months ago and while waiting to get my studio set up, then delays due to a bad builder, lumber costs, etc. I have put off fully testing my 388. I’m glad...
