And a new Gigastudio acoustic drum library 10/12/04
A new instructional video from Mind Media's David Wills is more than just a complete guide to using the 2488: it teaches basic recording techniques to musicians getting their first start in recording. The DVD begins with a section called "Recording School" that teaches beginners the basics about microphones, multitrack recording and mixing. It goes on for the next 90 minutes to cover every aspect of recording, editing and mixing on the 2488 24-track Digital Portastudio.
The DVD is available at many Tascam dealers or on the Tascam WWW Store
New Acoustic Drum Library for GigaStudio 3 Ships
The latest library to take full advantage of TASCAM's GigaStudio 3 software sampler, Larry Seyer Acoustic Drums incorporates several new technologies and techniques to make it the most realistic drum library ever created. This new 24-bit sample library features drums collected and played by Pat Mastelotto, drummer for King Crimson, XTC, Mr. Mister and others. It features samples of 115 unique drum kits – with 12 variations of each one – for a total of 1,380 drum kits. Many of the best features of the library are made possible using new technology in GigaStudio 3, such as GigaPulse convolution modeling, instrument stacking, multi-placement room reverb, microphone modeling and iMIDI performance rules.
