ive been recording for a while now, but ive never really gotten into more complicated chains by adding inserts and other modules along the way. my setup has always been more just mics and mic pres. so i was wondering. lately, ive had this urge to buy one of those semi-cheap 4 or 8 track tascam tape recorders, and mess around with analog. i have a pro tools setup with a digi 002r. so how would i go for that analog to the 002r? would i just record for instance vocals normally into the tascam and then take the outputs of the tascam and put them into one of the analog inputs on the back of the 002r? so i have a few questions. can this be done in real time? or do i have to record on the tascam then play it back to record into protools? and do those tascam recorders sound decent enough to fit into an ok sounding digital recording? or do the reel-to-reels have better quality sound than those cassette recorders? or is it all in the tape/casette you choose? sorry for all the questions, but im only 17 and havent really been exposed to analog stufffffff.
