Tascam 688 MidiStudioThis is a Tascam 688 MidiStudio. It is in perfect working order, good cosmetic shape and has
very low hours on the heads.
The 688 is an 8-channel multitrack cassette recorder, a 20 input mixing system with electronic
routing control, and a MIDI Tape Synchronizer combined into a single work station.
If you've been using, or been recorded by a digital machine you know how much better the analog
tape can sound. There's no sampling rate trade-off with an analog machine - it "samples" everything
from 40hz to 16Khz (spec from manual)!
It comes with the original detailed 60 plus page manual (in English).
I bought this to sync up to the 688 I already have (to get 16 tracks!), but haven't been able to find
the MTS-100 Tascam Midiizer and I'm giving up the search. I don't need two without the MTS-100.
Asking $450 for local pickup, or delivered in the Bay Area from Santa Rosa for a reasonable fee.
