Question about Tascam US-144 Sound Card

1 Answer

144 drops out

Using the 144 for both digital interface and real time analysis with smaart and various other software. Every 30 seconds or so I get an interuption in the signal or hiccup. It happens when playing audio from music libraries as well as recording or using an RTA device.

    Hello, I am have the same problem with my 144, Thought it was a bad cabel or mic. Not so also drops out with any line level input. New firmware, and latest driver didn't solve the problem. Don't bother re-installing the audio software or Windows XP. No change. Strange thing, this just started. It's a year old with very low milage, no real change in the laptop I'm using. No explanation. I did install SP3 a few weeks ago. Didn't notice the problem that I can remember. Might try cpu settings. Any help would be apreciated! Worthless in this condition.

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.

1. Check for any fault codes on your OBD2 output. If you don't have a scanner you can try to find any codes manually (wont mention how to do that). Easy solution is go to certain parts stores like autozone and they will hook up a scan tool and see if you have any nasties.
2.Another possibility is a plugged cat converter along with a problem with your 02 sensors.
3. Try to find someone with a way to do realtime diagnostics with a bluetooth real time engine analysis using your smart phone or pad. you can use the ELM327 interface plug which you can get on ebay for $6-10. You can download free software to run it or pay$5-25 for pro software. You plug in the interface to the truck and read a myriad of parameters on you phone or pad which should go a long way to figuring this out even if you are mechanically challenged.
4. Fuel starvation is another possibility like a weak fuel pump, plugged fuel filter if it has one, plugged air filter etc. Gas cars need energy, air and spark at the right time in the combustion cycle to run properly. You may have the 5.7 motor which is dead reliable . Good luck.

Firstly, according to the characteristics you describe the sound of view, there may be a preliminary analysis of abnormal exhaust noise is too large, it is recommended that you check the focus of the exhaust pipe is abnormal leakage phenomenon, including the various exhaust pipe interface pad, etc., but abnormal noise and noise problems for the maintenance of the vehicle is required to conduct on-site inspection trial judge to hear the sound, and the need to combine to produce abnormal sound condition and the nature of the sound source, such as features and a comprehensive analysis before we can make accurate judgments,Therefore, recommend that you view the situation combined with the diagnostic tool to detect, then to 4s shop for further analysis to determine
