They sell a module to install in the tascam. Works really well.

    Just noticed there is now an updated version of this VGA adapter. Looks easier to install. I've had mine about a year now and it's great. There's also a video on YouTube. Search for HGR2488

    HGR Music are now advertising the HGR Prism to display the 2488 on a PC monitor in color, very similar to a DP-24!

I, too have heard such rumors. The known truth though at this point = Many say they are using a lighted magnifying lens to make the display larger. I used to wonder about the display rewiring option but all I've seen is the magnifying trick...so far.

Just got the Tascam 2488 neo. I'm concerned that due to the size of the room I can't place the unit far enough away from the speakers to ensure I don't damage the unit with electro magnetic fields....


Assuming you are talking about your monitors for your 2488, the first thing I'd do is to consult the manual for proper placement of the monitors relative to the 2488. A quick rule of thumb is to place the monitors at ear level to the left and right of the 2488 so when you sit facing the 2488 yo will have one monitor facing each ear essentially. Again, consult your monitor manual as it will show the best placement and don't worry about electrical fields, etc. I have my monitors to the left and right of the 2488, the 2488 in the center and a 21" flat screen computer display in the center of all that with no problems whatsoever. That is the accepted practice generally speaking. Hope this helps.

TRANSFERING OLD TRACKS TO THE NEW TASCAM 2488-NEO


You'll need your PC as the intermediary. You'll have to do a USB export of the tracks you want from the DP01 to your PC and then connect the 2488's USB to the PC and do a USB import of those tracks into new tracks on the 2488.

Page 40 of the DP01FX manual will explain using the USB connection and page 43 details the steps for performing a USB export.

In the 2488 NEO manual refer to pages 80 and 81 for using the USB connection and importing the tracks.

Hope this helps. Best of luck.

You could add an HGR monitor interface module to display the 2488 on a PC monitor.

That way you don't need to look at a damaged display and the 2488 (MK1, MKII and NEO) work just like before.

2488 display


There isn't. The closest you can get seems to be this program called T2488 from MixerMuse which allows you to control the 2488 from a PC via a graphic interface.

http://www.mixermuse.com/

It was designed for the PC, but the author has stated that this program may allow it to be ported to the Mac.

I haven't used the MixerMuse program myself but I've heard some good things about it and it certainly might be worth a look.

Cheers.

In the monitor section on the 2488 console (upper right) make sure your monitoring source is set to 'stereo'. Then make sure your 'monitor level' control is turned up. The 'stereo' fader (sub mix fader on the MKI, stereo fader on the MKII).
