Question about Tascam 2488 Portastudio Multitrack Recorder System
Congratulations on your first recording! Mastering and pre-mastering is covered in much more detail in the manual (page 59 in the original 2488 manual) but I'll provide a brief explanation here for you.
First you need to enter pre-mastering mode. Do this by navigating through the menus to the 'audio CD' menu and then choose 'pre-master'. You'll see the word 'Mastering' appear in the LCD screen to indicate you are in mastering mode.
Basically you need to then set the 'out point'. The 'in point' is always 00:00:00.00. So just play your recorded song to the end (or where you want the master to end) and press 'shift' and 'set out' to set the out point there. A master has to be at least 4 seconds long which is whay you are getting that error message.
Next press record and play and the master will be recorded on two internal stereo mastering tracks (left and right). Master recording will automatically stop at the 'out point'. You can redo the master, undo a master, or copy the master tracks to any other two available tracks to preserve a copy and then go ahead and record another master. All effects, mixer settings, and fader movements are recorded as part of your master.
Best of luck.
Hope this helps.
