Question about Tascam US-144 Sound Card
I have a thought on the 144 running on xp. If recording is such a memory hog and some say a minimum of 1 gig ram is needed then has anyone upgraded ram and had success? And or is it possible to create a dedicated swap file of some sort in place of ram. Actually I would like to know if it is indeed the lack of ram freezing the machine (.5 gig) and might there be a work around?

Even after I installed the latest drivers and firmware from Tascam, and upgraded from 1GB to 2.5GB RAM on my Windows Vista laptop, nothing worked until I downloaded the 4.1.2 Cubase 4 LE update from www.steinberg.net. This update was marked as "official Vista release". I downloaded the update and installed, and now everything works without hanging up the system.

Hey ive got the same sound card and its running fine on my P.C laptop (toshiba). im running XP pro and its all good. just make sure you have the latest us-144 drivers, and enough ram on your pc. 1gig or more. my laptop has 2gig, duo processor, and no probs here.
in response to that last comment on buying a mac, i disagree, as ive done a few recording sessions with mac users, and ive seen my fair share of $^#%$# ups on the macs inside professional studios. So use whatever your familiar and comfortable with. Also, you might want to consider if running pc to dedicate it just for music, no internet ect. get rid of all the programs you dont need and partition your drive.
hope this helps

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.
