Yes, this is not consumer grade.

Roel, great to see your studio setup, especially since we've talked by telephone in the past.

Blinkers: WOW: Totally Awesome studio setup.

Admittedly, my setup is pretty stripped down compared to you 'real' studio guys, and basically includes just the Yamaha Tyros & PSR2000, Dell Dimension XP computer running Sonar, a couple of AKG C3000 mics, M Audio's: Omni Studio with Delta 66 sound card, and a pair of Genelec 1029 near field monitors + Genelec sub. Oops, I almost forgot to mention the Steinway B.

Well that's nice - but it doesn't answer my question. I've checked every resource I could find (downloaded all specs and manuals) and I cannot find any indication that the Tascam CDRW2000 actually does glass mastering. Tascam itself does not claim that it does nor do some of the people I spoke with who sell this unit. I'm only pressing the question because I have great interest in finding ways to accomplish glass mastering relatively cheap. Can you tell me what indication you have that this unit will do glass mastering?

I doubt that CDRW2000 does glass mastering, however it does use consumer grade CDR/W (the one's you use in the computer) which are playable on most CD players now a days.

Most of the consumer grade CD recorders use audio only CDR/W, these are more expensive and are not playable on every CD player. I have Tascam CDRW700, it is great as a mixdown recorder.

How can you send pictures here? I could also send pictures of my studio here. It is a very budged studio compared with yours, but still I could send the pictures.

You can record to professional or consumer CD-R or CD-RW media.

Micco,

I posted a message on the acapella forum, where you can attach an attachment, where it gets a URL. This URL can be used in your Synthzone message by placing it between [img]...... [/img] (see examples while editing the posted pictures.... just click 'edit' on my postings)

Hope you'll be able to show your studio soon.

Roel

Yes, but you'll end up with a CDR, not a glass-mastered audio CD no matter what media you use in it. You cannot do glass-mastering with this unit - I checked with several knowledgeable people just to make sure I wasn't missing something. The glass-mastering process is very involved and there are no stand-alone portable units that do it currently from Tascam or anyone else. Glass mastering requires multi-step generations which starts with a metal master and works down to the glass master that is used for the creation of the duplicates. Several hefty machines are involved. While the Tascam CDRW2000 is undoubtedly a nice professional-grade CD recorder that creates CDR's that play on most -but not all- CD players, glass-mastering is not one of it's abilities.

Boy-
I can't get enough of Pro's picture set up (i'll post mine some time just need to borrow somebody's digital cam first). Especially the silver flat monitor....

I can't see blinkers' though.
