Question about Tascam US-144 Sound Card

1 Answer

Us-144 working only on high latency!

It was working well on my first pc but when i plugged it into my new laptop Dell Studio it only plays clear sound on high latency. whean sound is streamed on a low latency it makes pauses. or makes a strange noise like a fast hat in the background of sound.
i need to use lowest latency because i'm using midi control on live performances.

Even my q6600 clocked at 3.6 Ghz gives me 12ms latency. It turns out the tascam highest latency is 12ms also on my p3 3.0 ghz pc. I haven't tried the tascam on my q6600 - I use an Emu 1820m on that. But try testing the tascam on a really fast computer. It's probably your dell's middling motherboard that's the slow down as well as all the extra stuff installed on dell's and especially notebooks that are robbing the usb bus of it's bandwidth. In most cases with the tascam, it's the pc or a low latency setting. If you want a great card for serious work: The EMU 1616m pcmcia card is a great card! Even SoundonSound loves them. Emu just makes great soundcards that rival any card out there for the best prices. Emu also gives the most control via it's excellent PatchMix software, but Patchmix does require an average IQ and about 10 minutes of reading.

Dell studio 17 screen flashes erratically, touch pad erratic too.


When you had it apart did you check plugs and connectors to make sure none of them have become a bit loose? Sounds like something where dust might have gotten in due to the connector being loose, and clearing the dust was a temporary solution due to that?

I have a tascam mk144 audio interface. When I play a sound file I created in Band in the Box or Audicity, I get distortion and cut outs. I have updated the driver. What else can I try? Thanks. Scott


OK, well could be the soundcard. Make sure you have the most current drivers for your OS.
Second, it could be the latency setting is to high or too low. You can adjust this in the control pannel.
Third, it could be your amp is knackered or you have plug your soundcard into a phono input and you are overdriving the input causing distortion and the amp to cut out

I have a 4 month old Dell Studio 1535 laptop, with audio problems


Hi,
Firstly check that the microphone level is down or turned off as this sounds like some sort of feedback that's being produced.

Check the microphone and try to play music again.

Please post back


Good luck.

Dell studio 1737 speakers crackle and pop.


My best guess is, if they crackle with the speakers but not the headfones,  then replace the speakers. Must be a lose wire or something of that nature.

Me and some buddies record with sonar home studio 6 and i bought a new pc custom built for recording well our computers on tha same day and time started having problems with sonar popping and glitching...


Sounds like what is called a latency problem. You need to go into the settings in Sonar and under audio, adjust the Latency to a higher number...I don't know sonar home studio, or I would tell you the exact area to go in the menu's to adjust latency..Hope this helps!

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.
