Sorry Loppy C, I got rid of it somewhere around the time I bought a 688.
I really wish I had kept it as now I am in the same boat as you are.

My first was a K2500, then DP (First version with Audio) and Master Tracks...
I'm pretty young, I guess.

Thanks for replying though
I called Teac today and they still work on them! so I am going to get mine revamped, probably just needs belts and various rubber part replacements (I had already had a new head stack put in shortly before it's 'retirement') so once I am done with my archiving, maybe you can buy mine
I don't know exactly which ones but apparently many of the later models will also play 244 masters.

Texture for MS-Dos was my first sequencer. I still have it in the box!
Its on 3.5 floppies, wonder if it would run with an MS-Dos install in Parallels on a MacBook?

Stumbled upon this old thread and it brought back so many memories I had to jot down my own progression:
- mid 80's: Tascam 244, Casio VL-Tone VL-1, Boss Dr Rhythm + tons of borrowed stuff. Together with some friends I actually ran a small garage studio based around the Portastudio. People would pay us to come and record on this little four-track. Amazing. But some good music were made and we had a lot of fun.
- 1988: Macintosh SE/30, MidiPaint sequencer and Jambox 4+ interface (both from Southworth Music Systems), Roland MT-32, Elka MK-88, Simmons SDS7 + more borrowed stuff. Still had the Portastudio and sometimes used SMTPE sync...
- 1990: same Mac, switched to Opcode Vision (what a great sequencer that was) + all my pal's stuff
- 1991: bought a used Macintosh IIfx and ProTools 442 (one of the first ProTools rigs in Sweden) - used Vision for all sequencing, ProTools for audio
- rest of 90's: endless ProTools and SampleCell hardware upgrades, costing tons of money, also a short stint with Yamaha ProMix01 and outboard gear like Akai S2000, Alesis S4+ and E-mu Proformance 1+ (some of that still in closet...)
- early 2000's: deciding the upgrade loop would cost too much money and energy, went shopping for software based solutions, finally settling on Logic
- since then: MacBook Pro and Logic (and numerous soft synths) still works for me
Main stuff: ProTools since 1991, Logic since 2003. Now on Logic Pro X. A labor of love: Vild i min mun

You've had some pretty neat setups during the years. Thanks for sharing.
