SOURCE: usb file transfer

The initial software for the 2488 had a bug that would not transfer tracks that had punched in audio correctly. The file would transfer with missing audio. This was corrected in a software update. The work around was to rerecord any tracks with punched in audio to a new track then export.

Once this is corrected on a machine normal transfers and exports can be used. WAV files can be exported but have to be copied to the FAT partition on the 2488 then USB to a computer for inport to a DAW.
The FAT partition comes up as a USB drive. Realize that there are several ways to backup and or export your songs,files or tracks depending on your need. IE edit in Protools, move songs to another machine etc.

hope this helps

SOURCE: Making Midi Files for Importing to Tascam 2488

Hi,

You should always work in wav format if possible because there is a loss of quality with mp3 which is a compression format in which bits are lost in order to compress the file size.

There are a number of wav editors available which will allow you to load a stereo wav and then save it as a mono wav. The free one I use is called Audacity.

When working with FL or Reason I will sometimes import files to the Tascam, or I will take the outputs from my PCs sound card and line them into the tacams inputs and record them live. I only tend to do this with programs (like synths) where I am using an external midi keyboard and can play live what I want to record.

With basic drum pattern tracks I'll usually create them on the PC, save as wav, convert to mono, and then import to a track on the Tascam.

hope this helps.

Bounced trks 3&4 to 7&8 clicked on wav file button canceled says out of capacity


You have a memory problem. If you are using a flash card for memory or a CD drive or perhaps you have configured an external drive, you need to free up some space. Try deleting tracks or songs you don't need anymore.

Each song is independent on a CompactFlash
without affecting other songs. You can give a desired song name for managing recorded songs
(see pages 23 and 91).
Recorded track data is stored in a song as mono WAV files.
The MR-8mkII can convert the two WAV files recorded on tracks 7 and 8 (L and R) to a stereo
WAV file (see page 115).
You can export the converted stereo WAV file to your USB-connected personal computer, and
use the file by a music software application or make an original audio CD on the computer using
a CD burn software application. You can also burn an audio CD by using an external CD-R/RW
drive connected via the [USB HOST] port of the MR-8mkII (see page 115 and 123)

Having trouble transfering my wav files from computer to tascam ( dp 02) even from cd to tascam . so i am unable to use .help? i have transfered my mp3 audio files to wav and tried to drag and drop from...


I had the same problem too but I figured it out. First you have to make sure your wav file is converted to (MONO) as opposed to Stereo, (which is the default channel setting). The best thing to do is to download a converter program, in my case I downloaded AVS Converter program which all I did was upload the wav file switch it to Mono 1.0 and that was that!! The Cons: for this program it costs money to download for your own keeping. I also suggest Audacity program my computer wont let me download it but a co-worker of mine has it and he said it's free to download.

Problem importing files to Tascam DP02-cf


They don't mention in the manual that in addition to being 44.4khz, 16bit, mono, the wav file also has to be at a bit rate of 705kbps. Using Audacity (freeware) you can convert most any audio file into the necessary wav format for the DP-02cf to use.

Alternatively you could load your stereo instrumental track into a wav editor, then export each stereo track as a separate mono wav file which you can transfer via usb into you DP-01 and then on you DP-01 import those wav files into two separate tracks which you can pan hard left and hard right so they are in stereo.

2488 to pro tools


There is no way to 'sync' with protools from the 2488. In order to use your 2488 tracks in protools you have to first export your tracks as wav files and move them to your computer via usb and then import them into protools.

To get Protools files into your Tascam 2488 you'll have to export your Protools files into mono wav files first. They must also have a sampling rate of 44.1KHz and can be either 16 or 24 bit. Then load these files into your 2488 via usb and import them into tracks on the 2488.

Usb file transfer


In reading and working with the unit, I have learned that the file transfer is for backup only. If you want to manipulate the file they have to be transferred individually via your sound card or an interface.
