Trying to find instructions for analog recording online has been a dead end for me so I’m reaching out here.
My set up is simple:
And mic’d vocal
Goes into Midas DM12 mixer
(All the basic outs are used for PA)
Then I have a Tascam 424 mark III four track recorder and I want to capture this “mix” from the remaining RECORD OUT RCA connection that goes into my Tascam SUB INPUT RCA input.
I hope this trend continues! It also lends some very interesting possibilities to retrofit classic gear. Check it out!
I have some pretty Advanced technical analog console questions if anyone of you guys know the answer please help me out!
When your signal hits a analog channel on a console.
1) Does it hit the capacitors that are in the console first? and then the signal hits what ever hardware you have on your inserts? or is it after?
2) What component in the console actually creates the noise that we hear? is it the capacitors? and is noise added to the signal before or after it touches the capacitors?
I'd like to know if any of you have every tried recording analog drum machines onto a Tascam Portastudio?
I want to record a Korg Volca Beats to my Tascam Portastudio 414 mkii but no matter what I try there's feedback and the kick sounds very unstable.
Any help at all?
I recently read this thread this guy is explaining how he uses his daw as a console and his analog mixer for summing:
