Tascam us-144 no sound with Windows Vista

I'm trying to use my Tascam us-144 with a new pc. Pretty high end pc with 4gb of ram 2.26 proc. speed but when I plug it in my usb on the computer and try to run another audio program like itunes I get a popping and clicking noise then no noise at all. Even when I try to run Cubase I get no sound. I've done all the drive updates and changed the settings in cubase to recognize the Tascam but I still get the problem. I am using a 64bit version of Vista but the Driver updates supposedly fixed the previous incompatibility problems. Someone Please help

    i got the same fuckin problem wtf is up with that

    This is indeed frustrating. I updated my computer and run cubase 5 studio on a Intel Core2 Quad Q9400 @ 2.66 GHz with a 7200 rpm hardisk. Cubase runs super without click or hickups, but the US144 can't handle this. I also updated firmware and drivers (1.12). It ran and still does run perfectly on my 32 bit laptop.

    i also have a 64 bit vista installation and on here my us 144 wont run. when i open cubase or other applications that use the drivers (newest most updated), it crashed at start up. my whole computer is running significantly slower with the driver installed.

    if i unplug the thing and open cubase or other apps, no problem, but crashed as soon as I plug it in

    wtf is going on?

    and i live in denmark (europe), so there is no customer support for me. not even a contact email. WHAT THE ****!

Often, you just need to ensure that your computer's native driver is disabled, this is a common problem with audio interfaces and windows. Once this is done, make sure that your Tascam is set as both the input as well as the output device for all audio-based programs. If this doesn't work, get an M-Audio . . .
Hope this helps!

I get no response from my Tascam US-144 and windows 7.

Go to program,look for tascam folder and adjust channel 1&2 to analog.This should make your music program work fine.And then do research on both analog and digital recording.

Windows 7 drivers for TASCAM us-144


Currently Tascam does not provide Win 7 drivers. But I am sure they are working on it and will upload them.

Meanwhile, try installing Win Vista drivers. You can find them on this page.

TASCAM US 144 and Mac incompatible???

A lot of the Audio drivers or Tascam and m-audio devices really only work for windows 32 bit reason i tried installing the same stuff for windows 64bit won't work in less u have vista 64bit But regular windows 32 bit works with every program out there. The mac if it did work it should pick up a signal if it worked properly but it sounds like the mac don't read it even with drivers .

This also could be a problem with your device if you had the same problem with it last time. replace it with a new one and try the install again on your computer and see if it works after that.

Crashing every minute

I have found that the tascam 144 freezes the system evan when using other software than Live. It looks up with Cubase and other stuff evan Windows media player running sound thru the tascam. The problem is erratic and acts like an IRQ conflict and I still believe Tascam has fallen real sort of the mark by abandoning the customers. They are without a dought responsible for this problem and should step up and FIX it NOW. We are many having problems it is no fluke and I for one am discusseded with the total lack of support for what they have released as a viable and workable unit. LIES just to sell their stuff. I feel that Tascam's support should be in on this forum and start to work out the diffinative answere.

Anyone want to buy a cheap Tascam US 144 that won't do what you want. I achive move by plugging into the MIC or Line in on my system sound card than I get from the great Tascam device I bought in good faith and can't use.

Tascam us 144 sync problems with cubase le

Hey lea,

i have a similar setup (Cubase LE & Tascam 144) and each time i start up Cubase i have to make sure there is no digital input going to the tascam. once cubase is started up but no project loaded i plug in my spdif from my DAT machine and then open my project and all is fine. does that answer part of your question?

i have a different problem though, i'm trying to record my DAT tapes which are recorded at 32khz and cubase doesn't recognize that sample rate properly. it'll record no problem, and play them back fine, but exporting always creates mismatched sample rates in the exported file. sucks big time and i have got no idea on how to fix it either.

US-144 on Windows XP home giving problems

One guess, is that the RAM in your system is too small. Try expanding to 1G by adding 512mb (if you have an available slot), or expand by adding a new module.

Not responding

you might want to downgrade to xp because vista uses alot of ram to run it. you could also get more ram. you need about 1gb and a half to 2 gigs to run most recording softwares and interfaces. i personally use vista cause i lost my xp disk and i got 2 gbs of ram and everything runs great, but if you really want to get into recording do what im doing and save up and buy a mac.
