just wondering if anybody out there uses Tascam PB664 Patch bays and knows how to change them from normalled to half normalled, open etc.
I scored a bunch of them from the radio station i worked at a few years ago and I'm in the process of hooking up everything in my studio through them. I had manuals for them once upon a time but lost them long ago.
Each section of 8 jacks has a separate card. You can access the card by removing the hold down screws. When you remove the card you will see a set of 8 small jumper connectors of 3 pins each. There is a silkscreen indicating that if a jumper plug is inserted it will be normal, half-normal or open. You will need the set of wires to fit the connectors to run from your top to bottom bay if you need to connect as a normal or half-normal. I still have my pb664's in use. I also have the manual. I can make you a copy. It's only a handful of pages. I can send them out to you. E-mail me at email@example.com if you need them.
would you have a few extra you would like to sell ---i have a m-600 tascam which is brand new and have never been able to use since it requires 10 pb-664 to completely set up but can be use with 7 if that is all you have---I have none at all--and could not afford to buy new ones from tascam i have had it since 92 and is still wrapped up--so if you could help me out I would like to fix it up for my son
