    Hi there!
    I recently bought a Tascam 424 MKII, and itís great! I only have a few problems:
    ∑ When I try to get my guitar on tape it will sound real vague, as if the sound of the guitar comes from another room. I have a Sennheiser mic wich I place in front of the speaker of my Marshall Valvestate amp. I already tried placing the mic in other positions, or turning up the sound level, which leads only to more fuzz.
    ∑ When I want to record a keyboard thereís this big fuzz I canít get out.
    ∑ I have a Zoom 1010 multi-effects processor I would like to record, but when I connect it to the Tascam it will alter the sounds just like itís supposed to do, but it wonít record the altered sounds, just the clean ones. For instance, when I want to record my guitar with Chorus, it will sound like a guitar with chorus when I record it, but when I play the recorded track back you will only hear clean sounds.

    The first problem is my biggest one, can anyone help me out? Thanks!

    Question

    Where are your TASCAM gain settings set?
    Trim, Channel and Master?

    And on this Zoom 1010 processor- where are you monitoring the output while you record?
