  1. One of the trim knobs has fallen off my beloved Tascam HS-P82. Ordinarily, I'd simply put the knob back on, and tighten the set screw, just as with any other knob on any other device on this planet. However, the set screw on this particular knob is inceredbily tiny, by far the smallest I've ever seen, and I do not have a tool that fits it. I tried calling Tascam, to ask what size the scew is, but nobody over there has any clue. This is their flagship product, the most expensive thing they make, and not one person in their company can tell me the size of a simple screw. That's m
  2. Hello,One of my location soundmen accidentally used an improper voltage setting on the power supply (powergorilla - used 16V instead of 12V). The unit powered up fine but we were not getting any input on any of the 6 channels, line or mic input. Upon checking the battery I immediately switched off the device. Set the proper input voltage setting (12V), but the unit would not power up - an error message keeps appearing - SYSTEM ROM ERRSwitched to the included 12V power supply, still the same SYSTEM ROM ERRAfter updating the Firmware to v1.31 the unit powered up okay.BUT I am still not getting

  4. I just got my 2ndhand Tascam DR680 from Adorama today, but it missing the dial for value. Which is surprising, as it was rated E- by Adorama, and didn't mention this as missing. Anyway, have emailed customer service in the hope to resolve this, but if it doesn't, what part should I look for to replace this? It doesn't have to be an exact match with the original, so long as it is functional. With my amazing magical MS Paint skillz, I circled the missing piece to demonstrate what I'm referring to.
  5. Has anyone figured out how to read the timecode off of the DR-701D Tascam? I am using it in the field and the AE is not having success finding timecode in the AVID timeline. Is there a trick to find the timecode? Upon import, AVID is reading just a file starting at hour 1. The Tascam is reading TC off of a Tentacle Sync, the "TC" display is on and it is displaying running TC on the TC menu page. What menu setting am I, or the AE, not getting right?
  6.

  7. Hey guys, Avid reader and new to the production sound scene. I've doing location sound for about a year now with good success doing corporate, 2 features and a bunch of shorts. Upgraded to my first nice indoor mic (neumann km150). So here's the deal: got my first gig that's got me pretty nervous. I've been asked to do sound for an interview with Martin Scorcese. My first thought was that I have to upgrade to a sound devices and some lectros or zaxcom lavs along with my indoor boom. I've been getting by with a tascam 680 and sennheiser g3's with a cos-11 mic. I know it's prosumer and I"m savi
  8. Hi Tom, I just had my HS-P82 delivered, and I'm waiting for my RC-F82 to be delivered after being drop shipped by Tascam. I also have HD-P2, DR-680 and a DA-40 to transfer a pile of DATs to a computer via the HS (I might use my old HHb Portadat also to dub two DATs at the same time into the HS). I have several questions. First, I need an AES cable snake for the DB25 i/o connector, but I can't seem to find a pre-made cable that anyone will admit to working with the HS. Will any old TDIF aes 4x4 cable work with the HS? I know I can make one with the pinouts in the manual, but I have
  9. Been searching everywhere for an answer to an issue with the DR-40's dual mode and was hoping someone could clarify. If I run +4 line signals into my DR-40 with the EXT.IN gain set to 0, then there's no way to get a safety recording because I'm assuming it only attenuates the unit's preamps, and not the line input signal itself. If I'm missing something, please let me know, I'd love to have that feature but I understand if the unit wasn't designed to support it like that.
  10. Hi wonderful JW members! It's been a little while since I posted on here and I wanted to start by thanking everyone for the wonderful resource this forum is. I want to start a conversation about the pros/cons of small portable recorders to be paired with DSLR or other cameras for lower budget or "one man band" type shoots. I'd love to hear people's opinions and experiences with recorders in this market. Specifically I am thinking of 3 recorders that are out right now: The Tascam DR-60D (which has a great thread started by Tom Duffy and a review by Ty Ford ), the Zoom H6 (which has a s
  11. Hi, I understand there have been a few topics on these, but I think mostly they've been about using them for recording dialogue etc through mixers and external mics. So here's one regarding the sound quality of built-in mics. This coming February I'm taking a three week trip to Vietnam, Thailand and probably Cambodia in between. Now, obviously I'd love to record all these cool exotic sounds and atmos you find in locations like that, but since it's a holiday, I probably won't want to risk bringing my pro equipment (like a 302), which would attract attention, be a bit heavy and unpractical
  12. Tascam Dr-40 anyone here using one? Are you able to name files and if so how easy/fast is it on the fly? Thanks for any input. I did read the manual but it doesn't go into much details but again I could have missed/overlooked info. Nicole
