I would like to add individual tape outputs to my Tascam Portastudio 414 mkII so that I can easily transfer a pile of old 4-track tape sessions to my DAW, playing back each track into its own individual output which is connected to an individual channel input on my audio interface.
Based on the unit's block diagram on pages 39-40 of the manual
, it looks like I should be able to jump off the individual tape output lines coming from the tape heads/dbx unit with nothing but wires to a group of RCA jacks, sharing a common ground wire among them all. The 'Sync Out' jack to play tape sync signals seems to be built the same way.
Are there any issues or gotchas with this approach? I don't have a mature understanding of electronics, but know enough to read diagrams and follow clear instructions.
Any info or guidance on this would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
