Question about Tascam 2488 Portastudio Multitrack Recorder System

Cant restore levels

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.

I've purched the Olympus digital recorder VN-100 VN-2000 a few years ago. I've never really used it. But i recently need to..and for some reason it cant record. Everytime I push the REC button ,the red...


take out the batteries , push the reset button, then put batteries back and try again.

If still not working properly , then it probably should go back to Olympus, if you bought it a few years ago , its probably out of warranty.

You can buy a newer model like the vn-6200-pc , which has way more memory and more features for much much less then it will cost to repair the vn-100 or vn-2000 , f

Bored maybe, but i doubt stroked. They usually bored them because they blew up the motor, as it doesn't make that big of a difference in power.
Did you check ALL of the passageways in the carburator to make sure they are clear? Also, see that you plug has a fat blue spark, light yellow is a little weak, and may be due to corrosion around the flywheel.
Also the reed pedals can stick and hinder performance, and last, make sure the air filter is cleaned and re-oiled with a good filter oil.

Laptop Mousepad and Keyboard stuttering, slow


Whenever that happens to me, at least to the mouse pad I restart my laptop and it fixes it...
If not then perhaps it's a hardware or software problem, maybe you could reinstall XP over again, or you could, as a last resort crack it open and see what's goin' on inside or have someone check it out for you (I wouldn't go that far though).

Laptop Mousepad and Keyboard stuttering, slow


This may be a battery power monitor issue. Try disabling the "Mircosoft ACPI- Compliant Control Method Battery" device. This is located in Control Panel-->System-->Hardware Tab-->Device Manager-->Batteries. Had similar problem with 2 Acer Aspire series laptops (diff models). 2 and 3 year old. Original batteries (both still hold charges for 1.5 hrs of normal usage). Running WinXP, one with SP2 and other had SP3. Both came in the last month with slow jerky TPAD function and nearly non responsive keyboard access. Checked the usual; virus, spyware, hijacking, driver conflict etc. Cloned drive and factory installed..still same problem with kb & mouse. However an external USB keyboard and mouse functioned normally (no lag). Noticed with Battery removed kb & mouse was normal. Finally found disabling ACPI control battery device resolved this issue while allowing laptop to run on either battery or AC.
