  • Newbie needs help

    I was told that the joystick port on my computer is the midi port. So what kind of cable do I need to run from my TD-10 to my computer? Is their an adapter that goes from a round midi cable to a flat end like is on my computer? I asked at a local computer store and they really didnt know much. If this is what I need, where can I get one? And what exactally is it called?

    Thanks alot

    Yes there is, its just a midi cable that you can connect to your joystick port. On one side the joystick connector, on the other site a midi in, midi out and a contra joystick connector.
    Don't go to a computer store, go to you music store, Thay will have one. I believe it is about $ 20,-
    Ask for a MPU-401 midicable.

    Groeten,

    Peter

      If you can't find one locally, search the internet. Worst case, order on line from Creative, but you will pay more that way (~$30.00).

                Embarrassingly slow. I bought the Tascam 788 hard disk recorder before Christmas. Through the end of January, I probably logged in 2 hrs with it. After that, it's an hr/wk, if that much. It's all new to me and seems a bit complicated. During the past week, my wife recorded vocal, guitar and a dubbed vocal on 3 tracks. I added stereo drum tracks on Sat and am now learning my way through the effects and compression, trying to get a good mix. I just need to dedicate some time several times a week, time which currently is in short supply. Everytime I get back to it, I have to relearn everything. Meantime my wife has recorded two other songs and has about 15 more to do. It's fun once you get going, but it can be time consuming.

                  Hey Boingo! I also have the 788 but haven't done a whole lot of recording yet (had it for a year now :P) anyway, just wondering if you also post on the TASCAM forum? I go by my real name over there Brian Kidd. Just wondering

                    I recognized your posts on their site a couple months ago. You've also mentioned you owned one on this site. (I pay attention.) I registered the Boingo name but my password never came to me in the mail so I got screwed. I reregistered as TonyS. I only have a couple posts. Don't know enough to say much. Sounds like you are investing in some equipment based on yesterday's post.

                      Ahh yes now I remember seeing "TonyS" . Basically I'm just kicking around the idea of putting together a PC for doing the MIDI thing. As far as the gear that I currently own it's more like I have more gear than tallent . I have always been that way where when I get involved with something I can't just do part way and cheaply I have to go out and spend lots of $. I probably should spend some of it on someone who can play it all for me .
