Dude, you sure ain't into mind reading? :lol: Anyhow, I agree with what you said about Tascam discontinuing these boards. I've been watching these for the past decade. They did pack a whole bunch of useful features for its price range. I'll be adding a firewire card to my computer next. I'm in no rush so to speak, but I would like to get things going to see how the recordings will sound as soon as I get the chance.


Make sure the FW card has a TI chipset. :nod: I the mpc 4800 has little fan, that's why the screens hold up better. However people have replaced them.

True. I'll make sure I look out for certain FW cards with the TI chipsets, thanks. BTW, I wonder if there's enough real estate to accommodate any extras in this board? TBC

It's possible to add, just not sure what. Tascam missed the mark, by not allowing the Tascam TC Companion app to be used to control all the functions of the board.

Thanks C for the info. Yep, I saw where katz were talking about the s/w. I did download TC Companion the other day, but I doubt if it'll be worth using. Basically at this point, the DAW control and FW are my concerns. I'll keep you informed of what I found, or any hits or misses. Thanks

BTW, here's a vid of one of the members over at Tascam forums who did this song using a 4800, and I actually like this tune...
