    Tascam Dr-44wl
    I recently bought 2 cardioid mics for my dr-44wl. I can't find anythimg in the manual about setting up external mics, nor can I find anything on the internet.
    When I plug them in ( make and model: sennheiser e838ii-s), I get nothing. Is this a mic issue? Does the tascam not support cardioid mics? Is this a settings issue withing the tascam software?

    The DR-44L can only record 4 tracks at the time. So, if by any chance you have selected the DUAL RECORDING function, it will override the 2 extra tracks that would have been taken by the external mics.
