I have the Tascam US 2000 (2.02 drivers) and CB LE5 Win7, works great on 1-8 (inputs with preamp). My drummer takes up 7 of the XLRs and the singer takes the 8th, the bassist an guitarist need to use the line input in the back but I can’t get them to work. I turned the inputs to mono and tried channels 9-14, which are adjustable -10 or +4 only, with a guitar amp line out, but there was no indicator led on the front of the Tascam and nothing was recorded. I looked at the Tascam manual pg 13 http://www.tascam.eu/en/docs/US-2000_Manual.pdf and it shows keys and drum machines plugged in, so I’m sure they can be used for instrument recording and not just effect loops.
I’m guessing I need a preamp/mixer in between the instrument and then Tascam to bring up the signal for the line inputs to work? I would plug the guitar into the mixer then use the line out from that mixer channel into the line input of the Tascam. If this is the case, could I get a recommendation on a 6-8 channel mixer to accomplish this.
Sorry if an easy question, just don’t want to break anything.
