    The main output on my Model 24 is not working.
    The noise increases if I push the main fader to max but no audio comes through.
    Control room and headphones work fine.
    Main is not muted and each input that I am using has main pressed in.
    I also verified that the speakers work with another mixer just in case the xlr input broke on my speakers.
    This worked yesterday and for months before that.
    I didn't abuse the mixer or change anything so I don't know how I could have damaged it.
    Are there "hidden mutes" I may have pushed by accident?
    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Thanks!

    Edit: and I tried updating to 1.6 to no avail



    Ok so it was SD Main Mix Return
    Probably obvious to most but leaving this for future generations :)

    Hi @musicnerdindustries sorry you were having trouble.

    Would you mind being more specific so we can add this to the forum knowledge base and help others who will run across this in the future.

    Thanks.

    I’m guessing the OP had that switch, ”SD Main Mix Return”, depressed as that in effect bypasses all channel strips - Live, PC and/or MTR - and instead only allows what’s recorded on the main mix on the SD card to be heard, ie tracks 23 & 24. And if nothing has been recorded then one will not hear any sound when pressing Play and as stated no sound coming into any channel strips will be heard either.

    Logrinn you are exactly correct!
    It was "SD Main Mix Return", everything is working now!

    I thought I had broken something for a bit; glad to find this out now and not in a live situation!

    Oh, it's a button. And Tascam put it right where you could accidentally press it reaching for the Phones knob....
