1st problem.I recently bought a Tascam DP-24SD. I've noticed that I'm getting shocked when trying to record using a dynamic mic and playing an electric guitar. I investigated that problem further, and found using a multi-meter (by touching a grounded pipe in my home) that the unit was always sending 48.5 V out from both the casing (the screws), and the mic's even when phantom power was not turned on, and even when the unit was turned off (but plugged in). I hope to send it back for repair.2. I got a write timeout error. I resolved that with a decent flash card. Class 10, U3. Sony UDS-1.3. Noticed some sound glitches in the monitor mix when recording that were intermittent.
Great sound. Very clear. Some glitches though in the monitor mix.
Great features. Compression on input channels.
Ease of Use
Very easy to use. I set up myself and a band friend to do a quick take of guitar and drums as a stub track for later use. Very easy to learn and use.
Not so sure about that. I'm having an grounding issue that I hope I can work with Tascam to resolve. Basically, the unit seems to be sending 48.5 volts out through the the mic inputs and the casing. I talked to zZounds and they have not heard of this issue before so I'm hoping it can be repaired.
Great value, it is works.
Yes. We will see, I've sent an email off to TASCAM for support. I'm not sure if they are friendly. I'm not sure if they will solve my problem.
