Question about Tascam 2488 Portastudio Multitrack Recorder System
I bought this thing maybe 2 years ago, i figured out how to record and ran with it. decided to experiment with the levels and diff sounds, SOME HOW i managed to change the recording levels so much, that for example if you take a completely studio record and play it thru my turn tables onto tascam to record mix cds, the studio record sounds like a live recording or artist in the vocal booth, or you can get all audio tracks and no vocal. what do i do to restore default levels. is there some button i push or a combination?
Sounds like you might have 'Fader Matching' set to something other than 'Real' mode which can cause the physical fader positions to be mismatched with the internal fader settings (useful for saving scenes, and used on the 2488 because there are no motorized faders). You can go into the 'Mixer Preferences' Menu (under the 'Preferences Menu') and check the what is set for fader matching. If it is set to 'jump' or 'catch' you should change this to 'real'.
You also might have a particular 'scene' being recalled which has a lot of saved settings that are affecting the levels.
You can refer to pages 39 and 92 (in the MkII manual) for references on scene memories and fader matching.
Hope this helps.
