    Hello everyone! I have an issue with my Tascam.

    While recording on a cassette there is a huge low-frequency noise.
    What is the reason? Any ideas?

    It is hard to tell what that is without seeing the unit- could be what you have hooked up to it or even a power supply issue after all these years. The 424 is a relatively newer unit unlike the 144 and 244 decks.
