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 .

How to record from a microphone to a CD


Are you plugging a mic (if so what type) directly into the Tascam, if so this will not work.

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!

I need more tracks!


Your preamp needs to have 1/4" output jacks which channel all of the mic inputs into these two outs. This isn't typically how a mic preamp is set up however. They often will have 2 ADAT outs which output all the inputs in stereo or some other configuration. You may have one that can do this, but if not you'll probably end up needing some kind of basic external mixer which can handle all of the individual outs from your preamp through the mixer's inputs and then you'd run the main outputs from your mixer into the two inputs on your Tascam DP-01.

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.

Difficulty with recording


It sounds like you have connected the two correctly. I can only imagine that you need to check that the hifi source selector is switched to that line-in, it may be referred to as AUX. Check that the recording level control is not at zero on the hifi and if there is a volume control for line-out on the tascam. If you are able to listen to the recording on via the hifi then you are halfway there even if it doesn't get to the hifi recorder. If your hifi is a seperates system then you could try plugging the tascam in to the CD input on the amplifier.
