This week I had to finally retire my TASCAM 2488. Ten years old, buttons failing like they all did, cd unit intermittent. It was getting hard to work with, and I started a new song and just said fukk it. Have a DP32SD coming probably tomorrow, same work flow for me, some changes hardware wise but nothing traumatic. Just no CD, which is a good thing, I can burn them all day at work.

Good times. I hope.

Nice box. I picked up a similar unit, Zoom R24 last year.

I have an old Tascam Portastudio from the 1980's, a cassette tape recorder.
It still works like a charm.

I also own the Tascam 2488 NEO.

Believe it or not, I prefer the functions and controls on the old tape model better.

The NEO is just too complicated.
Either that, or the instruction manual is poorly written.

I just got a Tascam DP32-SD, not had a chance to use it much yet. Used my mates Advanced Jumbo to record a couple of tracks and it sounded amazing but getting a lot of noise from my 1954 J160e when I plug that in which I know is due to the guitar and the original p90 known to feedback a lot though PAs. Need to get a pick up fitted to my other acoustic before I will get proper use of the Tascam but so far seems a very good purchase. Anyone else got one?

weekendstate,

Have you considered just recording the guitar via an open mic, such as a Shure 57?

The Tascam DP32-SD appears to be a newer and more improved version of mine and rct's old 2488.

I'm sure it will yield high-quality results for you!!

I run left right out to a couple of Samson monitor splitters. Left right in, three pairs of monitors out, I use two Samsons, I like monitors. A lot.

Theres a few out there, Samson used to be at SamAsh don't know if still around, Behringer, ART if they still exist, Mackie Big Knob was a high end monitor feed.

You want powered monitors.
