Question about Quantegy 456 Tape Reel(1/2 in. x 10 1/2 in. x 2500 ft.)
I was given a Tascam 22-2 and some reels to evaluate. I threaded the reel, it appears to feed and uptake correctly. But there is no sound, does this machine require external speakers? I have tried changing settings in different combinations.
Yes you need to hook it up to an amplifier and speakers through RCA cable on the back. And or you can use headphones if there is a headphone jack?
Also make sure there is something recorded on the reel tape in the first place. You can do a test recording of something like a CD from your CD player or record something, then play it back, make sure you turn the record input volume knob up and make the RCA connections on the back of the reel unit and connect to your playback source you want to record. When you playback the reel tape, the db meters should be moving on the front of the reel deck, if they move then you most likely have some sound recorded on the reel tape.
If you still can't hear any sound and the db meters are moving, then check all your connections again and volume output knob on the reel deck. Hope this helps?
