    Tascam DP-008EX.

    Hi, Many thanks for your reply R D Smith; much appreciated. Like you I've no problems in recording a track and playing back but if possible I'd like to amplify as I play without actually recording; as I say all this is new to me but I see so many with a pick up microphone attached to their...

    Tascam DP-008EX.

    Hi, Can I use my Tascam to play back through my powered monitors using the condenser mic on 48V phantom power without having to record first please or would I need something like an interface; I'm totally new to this kind of thing so please ignore my ignorance. I'd like to play my...

    Tascam DP-008EX.

    Hi, The garden bench is finally reassembled no thanks to the seller on eBay who stated the stainless 6mm screws were despatched but ended up wasting an extra three days when I opened a case against him only to receive a full refund; I then bought locally but the supplier hadn't the correct...

    Hi, Thanks TalismanRich; honeysuckle sure puts on lots of growth when the climate warms up a bit; everything in our gardens is going ballistic as well meaning lots more work. I took our big cherry tree down years ago because it was too near the bungalow and I was afraid the roots might cause...

    Tascam DP-008EX.

    Hi, Many thanks TalismanRich; normally I'd fully agree with you but why is mother nature so bountiful with her rain every time I want to do exterior painting; normal exterior maintenance like recently felling 15 very tall trees I could wrap up against the snow; hail; rain and high wind and...

    Tascam DP-008EX.

    Hi, I'm still struggling for studio time but I've had a chance to play with the new monitors. A selection of cables were supplied with the monitors but only one mono 5m cable I could use to connect the amplified monitor to the Tascam with; the Tascam has two outputs so I've ordered more cables...

    Hi, My violins seem so far out of reach; I'm rushing around this morning painting the bench parts and have just knocked off for a mug of tea having just applied the second coat of gloss paint to the wooden slats; I hope to give the bench ends a first coat of gloss before dinnertime; after...

    Tascam DP-008EX.

    Hi, Thanks for your reassurance regarding phantom power CrowsofFritz; I'm always very careful but it's so easy to get caught out.

    Hi, Thanks CrowsofFritz for your useful information. Whilst having breakfast this morning at 6 o'clock I watched a YouTube tutorial video covering my Tascam and noticed my Tascam has phantom power but I'm a bit concerned regarding using the phantom power on my new condenser mic when it arrives...

    Tascam DP-008EX.

    Hi, Thanks for the warning CrowsofFritz which I truly appreciate; I'm sure with my luck if I went with ribbon mic then the mic wouldn't last long at all. I said I'm totally ignorant of mics and would appreiate advice from members please how to connect a condenser mic to the monitors I've bought...

    Tascam DP-008EX.

    Hi, Thanks Steenamaroo; things are looking up at last and I'm gaining lots more experience. I viewed many monitors up to a value of £300 but in the end realized my needs were little; I don't neet huge ampliers for my small studio and I don't wish to cause annoyance to our neighbours; all I want...

    Hi, Thanks for asking dobro. Easy answer; the Strad book was quite expensive and still had the Strad drawings in perfect condition which I wanted to preserve; making the patterns was no problem to me and I can now use these. I did have a major problem though in converting the Strad drawings...

    Hi, Thanks dobro; yes I need to learn so much more; intonation; vibrato; reading music etc. I'm still very much a violin novice but have gained a lot more experience since I started last August but I know I've only scratched the surface; I have considered violin lessons but I'm in this for a...

    Hi, Thanks skywaveTDR; the reason I have a stereo Tascam recorder and a mono amplifier is because I didn't know any better hence I joined the forum for help and guidance; I've learned to use the Tascam for recording but it being totally new to me when I bought it I thought it would have an...
