Tascam 32


No matter how elaborate a multichannel tape recorder is, it doesn't do the job without help.

A lot of equipment is involved, and a lot of talent as well.

The recorder becomes the keystone in a system that involves microphones, mixers, loudspeakers, amplifiers and many sophisticated electronic devices.

Everything contributes a part of the system of multichannel recording.

In the Tascam 32 general purpose 2 channel recorder/reproducer we have included the features, circuits and controls necessary for a wide variety of applications.

For example, true stereo remote recording with a minimum amount of extra equipment is made possible by the inclusion of microphone pre-amplifier, pads and headphone amps.

Found it on the curb. $50 for a capstan belt, pinch roller and some VU lamps and a few hours of cleaning and lubricating...and it sounds amazing! I finally have a 2-track to keep the 3340S and the 3300SX company. Manuals found here were a huge help, thanks!
