what the above guest said is exactly what you need to do. Make sure of course there is nothing on your FAT(previously exported songs/masters) because they will be erased. just go to menu->disk->fat reform, then press enter

SOURCE: Low volume on finalized songs.

There's not really any magic fix to this as far as I'm aware. I usually don't burn CD's from my Tascam directly, but export the mix to the PC and do final touches and burn from there. I don't typically normalize though and the levels are what has come out of the Tascam. I do however use compression on many of the tracks (and sometimes on the whole mix) before exporting which will squash the peaks and lows together and thus give you an overall higher volume with your level meters peaking in the normal place you're used to.

There are other factors like EQ without which a mix can sound too loud and perhaps cause you to lower the levels when really things in the mix just need to be allowed to sit in different EQ bands.

Compression is the key though. Unfortunately even well recorded instruments and vocals naturally contain wide fluxuation in terms of lows and highs and these need to be smoothed out in order to obtain anywhere near the volume of a commercial CD. With compression alone the result may still fall short as the use of pro quality mastering effects can really make a world of difference to overall percieved volume as well.

Hope this helped

It happens all the time to me. Only solution is to save constantly as you record because once it freezes up and says not stopped you can only unplug and plug back in then turn power on. You will lose what you were recording but nothing will be lost that you have saved.

How do I set my Tascam DP-32 to record 24 bit 48kHz?


Dustin, just go to song in the menu , click the arrow to song load, create etc. cursor to song create and it will give you the option of 16 or 24 bits just turn the cursor wheel then just cursor down with the button and select 44.1 or 48 kHz . Then cursor up to song load and push the right arrow and it will load your song with the settings you have selected. Very good recorder once you learn your way around on it. Joe

Cant hear audio on tascam 2488i brand new to using it but i do understand how to record a track on my display screen i can see the audio i recorded but no sound what so ever i have my headphones plugged up...


hi

Tascam Digital recording is an effective solution for broadcast-quality home recordings. The Tascam 2488 is a user-friendly tool and useful for home recording situations, especially when writing songs or cutting demos. It even has bus compression and processing for your final mix to give it that "mastered" feel. There are other recorders as well.

Instructions
  1. Learn your gear. The Tascam 2488 DAW offers 24 discrete channels that can be recorded at up to 24-bit resolution. 16 tracks can be recorded simultaneously, via eight XLR balanced inputs and eith 1/4-inch unbalanced inputs. There are several high-quality built-in effects, such as reverb, delay, modulation, compression and a great tool for guitarists: amp and effect modeling. So you can simply plug directly into the console and get live amp tones.
  2. Record or program the rhythm tracks. Most Tascam products offer a large library of built-in drum loops to construct rhythm tracks, so you don't even need live drums just to get a song down. You can designate the tempo of your song from the transport located on the right side of the console; this is where you would use a variety of buttons to make edits, undo or redo and automate punch-ins
  3. Record your base rhythm instrument. Let's say a rhythm guitar. There is a dedicated guitar input located on the front of the console, and once you're plugged in you can use the aforementioned amp modeling features to dial up a sound.
  4. Record the remaining track or tracks. This could include bass, vocals, keyboards, horns or any other instrument. The process is always the same. Arm the track you wish to record on, hold in record and hit play, and the machine begins to record whatever you are playing. When you're done, hit stop. If you want to undo what you recorded, simply hit the undo button.
  5. Repeat these steps on any other instrument you want to record. Plug a microphone into one of the first eight XLR inputs, the first 4 of which have phantom power for studio condenser microphones, arm a track and record.

  • If you need to punch-in a section, you can automate it by dialing up the time in the song you wish to replace using the auto punch function. When you enable this and choose the time in the song you wish to record over, once you hit record and play it'll start the track a few seconds before where it begins the punch-in and it will only go into record when it reaches the designated time stamp.
Do not rush. Proper recording takes time and patience.

hopefully this can help
regards

Is there a good tutorial avail? I lost all my music trying to create a cd without finalizing or mastering!!!! Panic took over and i rushed to undo without fully understanding what i did exactly. No...


You can download a manual from the tascam site for this model. as long as you pre-named your songs, they should show in the menu without mastering. You cannot burn any songs without mastering your songs first, however. They will not appear in the create cd section for this very reason.
Record, master,burn.

How do I split up one song on a Tascam DP-02 into more songs?


Hi, I think the proper way to do this should be to copy and paste a section of the track using in and out points to mark the section you would like to copy on to another track but I have been unable to figure this out! very frustrating! However for now I have managed to do it this way (The long way round but it works) say a track that I have 10 or so songs on, I copy it say 10 times (this takes a long time!) When you copy them they show up as the same title. I then rename the original so that i don't mess about with the original! Then I set in and out points previous to the song I want to get to another track and press cut. I then set in and out points after that song and press cut this leaves you with just that song and it is at the begining of the track because cutting closes up the gap. I save and rename this appropriatly. I then do the same for alll the other songs I want with the other copies.!!!!!! Hope this helps, if you work out how to cut and paste please let me know!

I cant seem to record more then one song


When you create a new song you switch to the new song automatically. To get back to the old one you just have to 'load' it from the list of available songs. As long as you shut down properly the song you are working on is automatically saved. It will automatically load again until you either create a new song or load another stored song.

Transferring songs onto new CF card


You'll have to create backups of your songs and transfer those backups using USB to your PC. Then with the 8 GB card inserted you can reimport them to the Tascam (USB) and restore them to the current working song which will then get saved on your 8 GB card. Do this for each song and then you can discard (delete) those backed up song files while connected to the PC.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

You have a couple of options with your guitar input. You can either plug your guitar directly into the right (Hi-Z) input and use the Tascam's onboard effects with it instead of your effect pedal.

You can put your pedal in the chain between your guitar and the (Hi-Z) input. So guitar into pedal is, pedal out into Tascam Hi-z in. (Still doesn't use the amp).

Or my preferred method for recording guitar would be to mic the amp. In that case you'd just input a microphone (placed about 8-12 inches from your amp) and record your guitar that way. The mic would be plugged into either one of the Tascams two mic inputs to record the amps speaker output while your guitar, pedal and amp would just be hooked up in the normal way.

Please note: Never plug the output from an amp into any of the Tascams inputs. Those inputs are line-level and the speaker output level which comes out of an amp out would damage your Tascam.


To get a backing song into a track in your Tascam, you'll have to first, using a PC, get the song into a 16 bit mono Wav file format. Then you'll have to use the USB import function to copy that wav file onto your Tascam onto the CF media cards fat partition. From the you'll be able to import it into the Tascam choosing which track it will import into.

Cheers,

BD

Play and Record button not working


I have the same problem with all three of my Tascam 2488 MKII's.
It's a software problem and starts to show up when the harddisk gets full.

Backup your song files ( something you have to do anyway ) and then reformat the entire hard disk.
Then restore the songs you were working on lately.

Before doing this rather huge task, you can copy your latest song to another partition and go on with this copy.
This is only a provisional solution.

Hope this helps !
Best regards
