Re: US portastudio 2488: Can it play when connected with...
The 2488mkII manual specifies that the unit can operate with either 120VAC, 60Hz (USA/Canada), 230VAC, 50Hz (U.K./Europe), 240VAC, 50Hz (Australia) so you should be fine with a transformer which can accomodate 230VAC, 50Hz).
I have actually conversed with people who have been using the 2488 in France without any power problems.

When you plug in the USB cable from the 2488 into your Vista PC, Vista will always say 'not recognised'. You do not need any PC drivers for the 2488. On the Tascam 2488, go to 'Menu', then 'Disk', then 'USB Open/Close', then click 'Yes'. On your PC the 2488 will appear as a new hard drive in the 'Computer' folder, called HDR2488. You'll see three folders in there: WAVE, SMF and BACKUP. Use the WAVE folder to import and export WAV files, the SMF folder to import midi files to the 2488, and the BACKUP folder is where you can import and export Backup files to and from the 2488. Hope this helps!
You'd plug the XLR connection into any of the first four inputs on the 2488 (labelled a to d). This is a dynamic mic so you don't need phantom power and should make sure your phantom power switch is off (out) on the 2488. You'd then assign the input you've chosen to a track, arm the track for recording, turn up the input level for that input to test the signal level, and record away by pressing record and play together.
