Question about Tascam 2488 Portastudio Multitrack Recorder System
Things to check.
I'm assuming you are using the Hi-z input on the front of the 2488 to line-in your guitar. That input equates to the H input of the 2488 (you can use the front Hi-Z or the normal 1/4 inch input on the back as the H input). Therefore you need to turn up the H input trim pot to hear your guitar coming through. You should see the meters for the main stereo bus moving as signal is coming in. That means your signal is getting into the 2488 but it won't be assigned to any track until you assign input H to a track. Once you assign the input to a track and press the rec button for that track (to arm it for recording) you'll see the meters registering both on the stereo bus and for the track you have assigned.
If you've turned up the H input trim knob and still don't get any sound, insure that the volume knob on the guitar is turned up as well.
If that fails too I would try jiggling or using a different guitar wire.
