How to connect a keyboard to a Tascam 2488NEO


Hello, I recently purchased both a Tascam 2488 NEO and a Korg A500 keyboard. I am unsure how to best connect this keyboard to the Tascam 2488NEO to get the best sound for recording. I have owned 4 track recorders in the past so something like the 2488NEO is new territory for me! Im sure I will be asking a lot of questions here over time. This is my first one though! Any help or assistance would be appreciated. Thank you .... Have a nice day!

The best method would be to connect the keyboard to the line inputs F and E.

Great Ill give that a try. That should then allow it to record in stereo correct?

Stereo would be best, yes.

I connect it last night and looks like everything is ready to go! I linked inputs e & f and sent them to 1 track.
Thank you for your assistance. I am sure I will have more questions in the future because I just got my 2488NEO about a month ago.
Have a nice day!
