Question about Music
Stumbled across your post on the Tascam 414 whilst searching for a schematic for my 2 four tracks. I use them at home and in the studio for arranging etc. before going to 24 trks...they both have the same problem, as far as I can tell. The motors have deteriorated and run slow.
I took the 424's top off, disconnected the molex connectors that attach the mixer to the assembly and the ground, and started examining the "relay" (cassette part). When I manually move the belt, the cassette returns to the proper pitch for a moment, and then slows within a few seconds.
Both of them play back super warbly, and I don't know if it's a belt or the motor itself...can these be replaced and do you know if Digikey, etc. has this part? If I can troubleshoot this then it will be instructive in my Optigan repair project (same issue--motor speed).

Sounds to me like you have the midi tracks outputting to the microsoft midi mapper or wavetable synth, which is built into the sound chip in your pc, and that this is conflicting with the mobilepre sound card - midi is just data, no audio, needs to drive some kind of synth. what you want to do is disable your internal sound card thru device manager, then just use the m-audio mobile pre as the input/output sound card in ASIO mode - you'll need to monitor via the headphone jack on the mobile pre or plug speakers into the line outs on the interface.
Then do tutorial 8 (in help files) on using soft synths - INSERT>SOFTSYNTHs creates a midi track and an audio track in a track folder.

I have a boss 1600 and ive used it in the way that sounds similar to you situation.It sounds like you have overdubbed track 1 to next track.If you dont want to hear track 1 while rec. track 2 turn fader down, unless you have already recorded or overdubbed 1 to 2.You should be able to hear track 1 unless you turn fader down or cancel tracksound for the time being.track 1 swhould be heard but it wont be re-recorded youll only hear it unless you turn fader down.Thats how mine works anyway.It lets you hear it if you want but wont record until you song save or during bounce nd mixdown.Then you select the tracks and or the virtual track you want to use.Id try to undo or stat again and read about the overdubb in manual.Im sure youll figure it out.I cant hardly imagine what all that 8800 has and is capable of doing.But ive seen one and i think the midi devices work alot alike.Hope you get it.Praisehim316.

I suspect this uses an optical pickup. You need to open the unit and look at the sensor. If it is an optical pickup, then use the canned air pressure to clean the area of dust.
If it happens to be a mechanical switch, then the mechanical encoder has to be replaced.
