Item is one vintage Tascam Studio Mixing Console. The Tascam 388 (also known as the Studio 8) is a 1/4″ 8 track recorder with a built in mixer that was released in 1985. It is very similar in function to Tascam’s cassette based Portastudio, although it never received that same designation. The mixer section sports 8 channels, 2 groups, an auxiliary loop, an effect loop, and “access” on each channel. The access runs just like a TRS insert, but without the need to run a TRS cable. Each channel has three band semi-parametric EQ. The machine can be run with or without dbx Type I, which is selectable by banks of four tracks (tracks 1-4, and then tracks 5-8). Track 8’s dbx can be disabled for the purposes of SMPTE or other time code encoding. All 8 tracks can be recorded on simultaneously.The tape machine section is designed to use 7″ reels at 7.5 ips. The tape should be of 1 mm thickness, but in a bind 1.5 mm thickness will work, too. This unit was serviced approximately 2 years ago but has been sitting in our showroom ever since.
