Recording analog drum machines to Tascam Portastudio

Hi there,

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?


Synchronizing Tascam HS-P82 with SD Mixpre-6 during recording


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.

Thanks anyway...

Sound Devices Mixpre-6 vs Tascam HS-P82 Little Test

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.

Tascam Ts r8 problem

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?
thanks, Terry
