Question about Tascam Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Tascam 144 when i plug my guitar through an amp into it, it only seems to record on one channel IE it only comes out of one speaker, I can get round this by taking a lead out of the sub out and the line out of the amp and plugging into both inputs on the 144, but this is hard to balance and just doesn't seem right. how am i meant to connect the guitar? when i look at the booklet it shows the guitar going into only one input and it says that i should not use both. What am i doing wrong. Thanks

No worries, you need to set up the channel you are recording to as a mono channel. It is the two overlapping o symbols in the track setup. Hit that and you should be in business.

Hi , is it possible to add an extra 2 speakers to my hifi even though there are only enough terminals to hold the 2 that was with it ???? also the run of cable nedded for the added 2 speakers will be...


Yes you can add two additional speakers, by adding a splitter off each terminal, which will take each terminal hole to two. However there is a couple problems you might discover. Power output will weaken because each channel is designed for so much amp output. So, by adding two additional speakers off those channels demands more power. Now, if your not going to crank them high and have a block party you will be ok. You can get the splitter that goes in to each port and splits and places like Guitar center, maybe radio shack, best buy, and even check walmart.They make also little devices that are a little unit that actually is separate, that hook up like this. Two small coax lines about 6 inches long come out your receiver and plug into this little splitter that has four ports, then you can run all four of your lines to the four speakers, and this device has panning and some other little features to make one speaker louder than the other like a fader. I hope this helps. Again Guitar center is best to check first.

I have Denon AVR-2310...but lost operating manual ! In audio set up, more specifically speaker configuration, a choice is given between " FTE", and "FTE +main". What is the...

The manual...

I'm pretty sure you mean "LFE + Main".

You need to identify the speakers to the receiver as Large or Small regarding their bass-handling capacity more than their actual size.

"LFE" removes the possibly overloading bass in a given speaker channel containing 'small' speakers and sends it to the subwoofer.

"LFE + Main" is sort of explained on page 29 "Bass Setting". The intent of LFE+Main is to task your subwoofer with the bass that ALSO exists on all other speaker channels regardless of their ability to handle it all by themselves. As you can imagine, this might make the subwoofer respond to sonic events that are actually supposed to be directional from, say, the rear channel(s). In that case the event might seem to come from wherever the sub is located instead of the intended direction; or at the very least it might seem to come from both places which is probably not what the sound engineers intended when they recorded the piece.

Having full-range speakers 360-degrees around PLUS a subwoofer, I don't subscribe to the 'bass-is-non-directional' school of thought. If you've ever felt the concussion from and subconsciously glanced toward one of the speakers after, say, a huge explosion, the system is working.

I set up my RX-V365 recently, and the center speaker doesnt seem to work. i use it for listening to music, the sound should come out right?

Sound from a speaker, nah, that's an optional feature (kidding).

If you dig into the manual annd go through the setup using the test tones you can prove/disprove the viability of all the speakers and channels. THAT is required before we try to listen to 'music' (assumed 2-channel) on multiple speakers.
Sound Field programs (page 25) can be applied to just about any source. Experiment, even within a given recording. You'll be amazed how different digital processes can make even familiar recordings new and more interesting. I've discovered instruments and sounds in old recording I never noticed before.

Is it possible to connect two jacks simulteanously to a speaker like S115 or SW118 coming from 2 different channels of a power amplifier like P5000S' please advise thanks

the s115 and p5000s are power matched for a single channel.
IE - the s115 is rated at 500W and the p5000s is 500W PER CHANNEL.
If you're trying to drive a left/right signal into a single speaker, you need to mix the left right signals together at the input side, and put the mix into a single channel of the amp, and then into the speaker from that one channel.

The other option is to have 2 s115's - one on each channel.

Pioneer VSX-1015TX 7.1 Receiver AMP ERROR I just recently started getting this AMP ERROR message when I try to change input sources, it does not matter which source I click on, for example, whenever I...

I would recommend checking your speakers polarity ( + on the + - on the - ). Also check to make sure the wires are not touching each other where they connect to the speaker or amp. Also check your input connections if you are not using HDMI or Optical. Worst case is you have to send it in to get serviced. Hope this helps

Hi, i just bought a gnx-3 guitar processor and it hums loudly.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Sounds like a bad cable or pickup. Set the volume to a level that you can tolerate. You may want to turn off the amp between each of these steps. Unplug the cable from the amp; if the hum does not go away you have problems with the amp. If it does then plug the cable into the amp and short the end that plugs into the instrument. If the hum goes away it is the pick system in the instrument, if not you have a bad cable.
Good Luck

I would like to run my tascam CD-GT guitar trainer through the speakers. Does the aux. speaker inputs above the antena connections have volume control through the stereo?

Hi Gargoyle005,

Most Aux jacks have a base level, other then adjusting the level on the trainer your would have to control the volume with the standard volume controls.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
