Hi everyone!

I have what could be a dumb question... I have a Tascam FW 1884 interface; it has insert points for each input. What I don't get is how you use them to add in external effects. I mean, how can you route a sound from the input to the (hardware)insert effect and back in to the same channel? I would get it if there were an insert out and insert in jack, but there is not- there is only one! I'm not even sure if it's an input or output!


That's how confused I am! The manual assumes I know what it is for, so if some patient person could explain this to me, I would really appreciate it! Thanx!

Never wait till tomorrow to put off what you already did yesterday- for today will come again
same time next year. Never call a doctor when what you really want is a naughty night nurse.

It's easier than you think. You'll need a standard balanced insert cable (a y-split with a balanced tele plug in one end and two unbalanced in the other). Something like this: http://www.zzounds.com/item--HOSSTP20

!!Oh!!


That IS easy! Even so easy that two such cables came with the compressor- but I couldn't work out what they were for- I assumed some kind of weird stereo-mono adaptor, or L+R mono channels to Stereo channel. I didn't dream of the input and output going down the same cable at the same time!


Thank you so much!
