OK folks, I just ran one of my 70d's on the v1.14 FW for around 4 hours flawlessly! I ran mk41>PFA>70d MIC IN/Phantom on Channels 3/4, BWAVs@24/96! No clue why the FW v1.14 is not on the Tascam US website yet ??? I left the v1.13 FW on my main 70d until I can get back from Phish/St. Paul Thursday or Friday to test the v1.14 FW out more extensively before I run it "live" ;)

But like I said, so far so good with the v1.14 FW during the 4 hours or so I tested it out earlier!

Firmware version 1.14 was posted to the US site today.

...Three full weeks after it was posted to the EU site.  And they still don't have any release notes for it on the US site!  Come on, Tascam...

I'll update the link on the FAQ page.

Going back to cardgate, it is as if tascam EU and US operate as two different ventures or maybe they test the waters in one area before going full speed ahead everywhere?  Sometimes they are a puzzle.

I think it's probably a case of one division not communicating with the other, large corporate disorganization.

Quite normal for most multi-national electronics companies.

They are often structured as distinct companies, acting as independent sales outlet for the mother Corp. They all get their products from the same source, but decide what products they want to carry, what warranty terms they offer, sales and service policies, etc. Their service operations are a function of, and report to, the sales departments.

I have no direct knowledge of Tascam's corporate hierarchy, but would be very surprised if it isn't structured this way. I have worked for Japanese electronic giants most of my career, and each was organized in that way to best match local distribution channels, regulatory compliance and taxation rules

Just wanted to let yinz know that I successfully ran FW v1.14 at Phish/St. Paul the other night :) I just put it on my 2nd 70d just 5 minutes ago, since it worked great the 4 hours straight I let it record at Phish :) I just started about 10 mins before PH came out and let it record straight until they were done for the night! At the beginning of each set and the encore, I just pressed the >> button to start a new track seamlessly! That method of starting to record before the band even comes out sure beats trying to hurry up and turn your deck on and then have to hit record when they come out 8) Instead, I'm already recording when the band comes out, and I just have to tweak levels for a second and I'm good to go the rest of the night since I have TONS of battery power!

Thanks for the update.

I downloaded and updated one of my decks yesterday and had no problem doing a short shoot outside. I love the faster startup time, and agree with you about "just let it roll", considering the card capacity and power available via external cells.

Yeah it does start really fast now. Couple seconds faster than before it seems anyway! After PH tour is over, I'll run some more extensive tests with the v1.14 FW, but Ive tried it a few different times already, and it has worked great so far!

Nope just the 701D has the ability to gang channels as of right now! No biggie for me, but it sounds like a relatively easy fix via new FW!

We've been saying that for quite a while now...

I haven't installed 1.14 yet but I'm guessing they haven't fixed the dead zone at the bottom of the gain pots.   I say again, we all need to email them to complain about these issues in order for them to consider fixing them.
