Tascam 2488 / MKII / Neo Tutorial

I've had some experience on the Tascam 2488 in the past and wanted to refresh my memory on its features. This tutorial did the trick and I also learned some things I didn't know previously. Well done!

Best of the Rest!!

The product I ordered was received quickly and is absolutely wonderful!! The customer service is superb!! The absolute Best of the Rest, as far as I am concerned. I had questions concerning this product and David went above and beyond, to make sure all my questions were thoroughly answered. I highly recommend David, and all the team at PRO, to anyone and everyone from beginners to seasoned musicians.

Helpful Informative Tutorial

Thus far the tutorial extremely helpful.Had an accident broke 3ribs. As a result have yet to get very far. I U may want to get back to me on this.
I am a complete novice at this. I'm afraid that even with the tutorial as clear as it is I may be one of those who need a tutorial " For Dummies".
I could also use advice on condenser mics. and monitor speakers that would be good with the 2488 as well.
I have 2 acoustic electrics and a brand new Martin D16 with no pickup.
I'm sorry this isn't what you asked for.
I will be glad to submit a review once I am able to do some recording. What I'm afraid of is that I may need something like Recording For Dummies because of total lack of knowledge with respect to recording technology. I've been playing the guitar for 53 years but other than having a Vestafire 4 track 30 years ago I am a completel novice. Some feedback, and or advice on those things I mentioned above would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Amazing amazing amazing

I`ve had the 2488 for around 9 years. After moving house I had to convert my garage to find room to fit my studio equipment. So my trusty 2488 was in a box for around 14 months and as a consequence I forgot how to use all the snazzy facilities in this amazing portastudio.
The DVD presented by Mr. David Wills is simply irreplacable. It introduces one to all the techniques and methods of using the 2488 but also includes some basic sound recording lessons such as microphone placement for the newcomer to home recording.
I reviewed the DVD after this long break from recording and found it to be well organised and intuitive. David introduces us to little tips and tricks that are well nye impossible to find using the manual alone which is really heavy work!
I would give this DVD 10 out of 10 in all respects and one a 2488 owner should have at their disposal at all times.
