(One of the Tascam guys said it would ship in February a few months ago. I'm calling it February 73rd, just in case there was a schedule based bonus involved. You know that they've been working their tails off and deserve it!)
The master went to the duplicator a few weeks ago, so this date should be solid.
I think the January date might have been Sweetwater's mis-interpretation, rather than a Tascam thing. Heck, Sweetwater started taking money and caching checks for vapor! And the February date was a casual mention, rather than any official announcement.
Ancient history. February 73rd, January 101st. Same deal. The important thing is this: it should arrive in a couple weeks or so. Woo Hoo!
