    These actually look very usable if you want to get away from staring at waveforms on a screen, trying to choose which of the 19 million plugin versions of the same compressor would work best on each track, and if 36 guitar tracks is really going to be enough.
    There's something to be said for just using the limits of what's right in front of you, and getting creative.

    Would be fun to use for recording a band on location.

    Plus I have a soft spot for Tascam. I started out making demos on a cassette based Tascam four track portastudio when I was 14.

    It's payoff for spending, what seems like, [email protected] forever time aligning some piano phrases performed by a non piano player, and having to figure out why the guitar player kept getting a howler, out of tune D on the third string when playing a G6 and a D sus2 in the fifth fret position. Guitar was properly intonated at the 12th. Ended up having to set up the guitar to play right at the 5th - 7th fret area because the chord voicings worked best there. It was a nice Les Paul too. Guitar player never noticed it live but under a microscope in the studio, we couldn't let it go.

    Mixing is a dream come true/walk in the park compared to all that stupid crap :confused:

    I've been using the same combo for labeling my stuff that I take to play gigs at. With my name and the acronym of my studios name on it. LOL. Like my chords and mic. So it doesn't get mixed up with the other stuff the band owns.

    I use Post-it label tape. 1 line for the patch bays, 6 lines for the console. Works well, and doesn't leave residue.
