Microphone Recording Hi, i bought a tascam US-144 lately and i tried recording my microphone , and there are 2 inputs on the tascam which are L and R, but my mic only has one wire , i tried pluggin in one of them and recording, i end up getting only one side recorded, like when i listen to what i've recorded, only da left or right side speakers work. Is there a solution for this? Thanks in advance

    this is bullS***!!! i pay for something, it should work the way one expects it to. one sided recording, like i can afford to buy another matching $200, just so i can record some tracks. i've been thru enough stress just getting a setup established, now finally, i have this one last dilemma!. THANK YOU TASCAM, ABD CUBASE MAKERS! GREAT COLLABERATION. not.

    I have the exact same problem it irritating as hell! I thought it was Cubase but now I'm beginning to think its the Tascam I'm confused and would really love some clarification.



    Why make this if it only records to one side via the side you plug it into! Its baffiling!

  • lankan_tiger Jan 09, 2009

    Thanks for the solution, but I've left Cubase and started using Acid Pro , at first it had the same problem recording only one channel, then i figured out that you had to change from stereo to Mono in the recording settings. And now everything is working perfectly!! I can recording anything and i will hear on both sides ( L & R ).

It all has to do with your VST Connections in Cubase LE (if you are using Cubase LE).

What you have to do is:
1)Go in and label you inputs and outputs in the Device Setup. Select " US 122L-US 144" Here your inputs and outputs should be displayed. You should be able to see which input is "active" and which ones are "inactive".

2) After noting which ones are active label these devices. Click the "Show As" section and label you "active" outputs as speakers or whatever you like. Also label you inputs which should be your mic or MIDIs.

3) After labeling, click " VST System Link" and make sure the correct input and output is selected, Example: (Input: AKG Perception 220, Out-put: Speakers/ Headphones) Hit Ok!

4) Bring up the "VST Connections" menu (F4) or (Device> VST Connections). Clear out all your outputs and inputs!

5) In your outputs click "Add Bus" Select stereo and 1. This should come up as whatever you labeled the outputs ( Speakers/Headphones for me!)

6) In your inputs click " Add Bus" Select Mono and 2. Here is where you should get one input that says the name of your input( AKG Perception 220 in L) The one below it should be ( US-144 Analog R or L) Click this and choose your Microphone! You should have the 2 options with your microphone named.

7) Test it (record something) and see if it works and plays in both ears if you want more clarification feel free to message me!!!!!!!

I HOPE THIS WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi there,
It sounds like it maybe an asio problem or latencey issue. You need to increase the latencey in the control panel of your tascam soundcard and this should hopefully cure you .

I get no response from my Tascam US-144 and windows 7.


Go to program,look for tascam folder and adjust channel 1&2 to analog.This should make your music program work fine.And then do research on both analog and digital recording.

144 drops out


To see if it's your hardware, up your latency settings to "highest" via the tascam control panel. Also, be sure you are familiar with the various ways to up latency in your recording package: in cubase it's under device settings, vst bay. If this works, you know it's some setting somewhere. Try disabling your internet connections and setting pc performance to "background services" Also, read a pc optimization guide for daws - they are everywhere. Tascam will email one to you if you ask.

Lastly - try the asio4all driver. This fixed my pops, but when I understood all the various latency settings and set the tascam to highest latency, I could use the tascam driver. Highest latency on my p4 3.0 2gb ram pc means 12ms input and my output is 61ms.

If the asio4all driver works - it's a likely latency issue.

Tascam US-144


Hi,

Can you tell me how you have the 144 connected to your speakers, and your computer? Besides that, one quick fix might be to turn the MON MIX in the upper left corner, all the way to the right.

If that doesn't help, please post your ins and outs.

Tascam Us144 and Sonar3 problem!!!!


Try this experiment:  Record a click track on track #1.  Record track #2 of the output of a monitor speaker playing track #1.
Now you have two click tracks which will probably not be cooincident (like they should be).
Measure the offset of the two tracks!  You now know your latency exactly, and can compensate by adjusting settings or moving the vocal track back manually that many milliseconds!

Tascam midi and audio conflict error


Hi,
First try turning off the onboard audio device using the BIOS interface. Try pressing f4, f2 or delete key rapidly at the flash screen beginning when you first turn on the computer. Look around in the bios (usually in "integrated periperals" area) and disable any onboard audio options that you see.
-In windows XP you can go to Control panel - Sound Devices and change the "map through" feature, select your default device, and run a hardware test simulation with a microphone for each device. Nice setup btw.

US-144 noise


Hi

Usually Noise comes from distortion such as Electricity (50-60Hz), Main reason audio input cables might have shielding problem. Make sure cable is connected well and shield is not destroyed. You can understand it when you unplug the input connection and use the Computer volume by playing a digital media. If distortion persists contact to TASCAM @+1-323-727-7617

Good Luck
