I've been using a Reel to Reel tape player for many years and have many tracts of our band on tape. I tried to use the monitor output from the reel to reel as an input to the AW16G using track 3 & 4. It didn't pick up any of the signal. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

You should be able to record the output of the tape recorder on the G. If it doesn't pick up any of the signal, the signal chain is broken somewhere. You have to find out where that is. You could connect the output to a different device that reads the signal, for instance a hifi set. Or you could give a signal from a different device to the G. One of those two should go wrong as the error is somewhere in the chain.

Assuming the output of the tape recorder is OK: did you assign an input to a track? Aren't there any scenes active (press the scene button, recall initial data and push and pull all faders to resolve this). Do you see anything on the meters of the G (press the view button, repeatedly if necessary to get to the meter menu and press any input selection button to view the input signals).

There is a problem somewhere, but it should be possible to do it that way.

Hi and welcome. Yes you should be able. The stereo outs can go into any two inputs. Press two inputs on the g and say yes when it asks you to pair them. Then hit the record button on the bottom left and connect the input to the track. Now hit monitor button and press the input button again which reconnects the tracks. Now you should be getting levels. Adjust the gain on g inputs to get best signal of around -6.

If you are getting nothing still in playback of r2r, the g inputs may not be strong enough. In that case consider either a preamp or better yet a small mixer. Then it should be strong.

Let us know what happens.
