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.
Tascam has a new line of entry level interfaces with drivers that have buffers as small as 4 samples (on Windows)! This is over a USB-C connection.
This is the smallest asio buffer size i am aware of on any interface. With some RMEand Focusrite buffers around 3ms at 64 sample, are we approaching sub-milisecond lantencies over usb? This would be awsome! Ill keep my eyes open for latency specs, as i have not seem them yet.
Just thought it was an intersting innovation, and a good sign for interfaces of all ranges.
Hello. I am new to the forum and new to tape recording, too. In fact, I just purchased a Portastudio 414 MK II and am waiting for it to arrive. I will mostly fiddle around with it to make demos on its own, but once I have the basics figured out I want to know how best to connect this to my computer. I use an Apogee Duet as an interface through Garage Band (I know there are far better DAWs out there, but I am still very green when it comes to recording and Garage Band has worked ok for the basic needs I've had so far). So, my questions are:
this is my first thread here after soooo much reading of this supercool forum! I hope that the thread will be helpful for other people too.
I want to buy my first multitrack - accually on 70% I bought it - I made a deal with a seller and I have one week for change my mind. It is Tascam ATR 60 8 tape recorder with: (see attached pics)
Anybody here using this?Looking to compare notes with other people re-recording approach 360 using it/mastering multiband compressor etc..
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?
Is there anyway I could synchronize Tascam HS-P82 with Sound Devices Mixpre-6 during recording, so that the audio tracks would be in sync for mixing.
I have never worked with syncing, so my question may be naive, but maybe somebody has some actual experience and could share his/her knowledge.
Here is another test I did today to compare Sound Devices Mixpre-6 vs. Tascam HS-P82.
It's not a strictly scientific test, but I think one can get the taste of how both recorders compare in sonic quality.
One of them is called Recorder_01, the other is Recorder_02, for obvious reasons.
I have a Tascam Porta Two.
I haven't used this machine for a while, but hooked it up and the left spool won't snug up. right spool mechanism is fine...when I put the left spool on, line up the tabs, turn the tightening collar there is a lot of slop and the spool wobbles...any ideas, of something that needs to be tightened or something broke...anyone know if TEAC still supports this machine?
