SOURCE: using the effects on the 2488 mk 11 for vocals

Use a single effect vice a multi effect and assign it to the channel vice the input and that should get you going. I'm sure you could just set the effect to the input and not the channel but this works for me. If your tracking your instruments/tracks to different channels, and you should be, then assigining the effect to the channel wont hurt you.

SOURCE: mic effects

The short answer is that you'd use the multi effect (or one of the 4 mic effect) to one channel for effecting your mic input. Reverb should be added later using the single effect. You'd send the already recorded track to the send effect and then return it to another track and 'print' it using a bounce. 'Send' sends the signal to the effect and returnsit to the mix bus. So to add reverb to a track you'd send that track to the single effect after configuring the reverb effect the way you'd like it, and then make sure all of the other are turned down and record it to an open track during a bounce.
The single effect is what would be referred to as a 'send effect' and is designed to be used at mixdown or during a bounce. In the 2488 the single, aux and send effects are all 'send effects'. These take an existing sound and change it. Examples are reverb, chorus, delay, phaser and flanger. The internal effects on the 2488 can be used or external sound processors can be fed with the sends and returned to inputs on the 2488.
The 2488's multi-effect, as well as the mic x4 effects are 'insert effects' to be used on the input signal when recording. Examples of insert effects are compression, expansion, gating, limiting and distortion.
You can send all channels (or multiple channels) to the same effect send, but they all must be sent to the same effect (or chain of effects) at once. You cannot for instance send channels 1,2 and 5 to one send effect and 3 and 4 to another at once. You'd have to do something like that in two seperate operations.
Insert effects cannot be shared among channel strips. Each sound source needs its own insert effect. The 2488 has one multi-effect box which acts like an effect chain on one channel or 4 mic effects which can be assigned to 4 mic inputs at once. Each input assigned uses one of the mic effects up (a stereo pair will use 2) of the available 4.
The main thing to remember is that there are the 2 different effect types. Sends are for adding something to the signal like reverb, chorus, delay, phase shift, flange (on the 2488 these are the single effect and the aux send effects) while insert effects act on the signal modify or subtract from it (compression, gate, limiter, distortion).

Hopefully this helps. I know it can be quite confusing starting out.

SOURCE: vocal effects on Tascam 2488 MK 2 portable studio

Hi again,

The easiest way to record using an external Lexicon effects unit (without an external mixer) is to connect your mic onto one of the 2488's inputs and assign that input to a channel strip (track). You should have the 2488 sends (output) going to the Lexicon's inputs. Then connect the Lexicon outputs back into another set of inputs on your 2488 and assign those inputs to two empty channel strips (tracks).

Then you will have to take that channel that has your mic input assigned to it and press send and set the levels there to send the signal out the sends (to the Lexicon).
Now you have a channel strip assigned to the mic input which contains your dry signal, and you have the two inputs returning from the Lexicon which contains your wet or effected signal.
You then have some options. You can control the amount of effected signal you hear while recording by adjusting the faders of the two wet tracks and you can either record the dry signal or the wet signal (or both) onto separate tracks.

Typically when recording the singer will want to hear an effect (say reverb) on his voice, but the engineer wants to record only the dry track at recording time (because effects can always be added later, but they can't be taken out). To accomplish this you would use the setup above, but only arm the mic input track for recording. In this way the singer hears the reverb, but only the dry vocals get recorded and the engineer can add reverb to that track again later as desired (and mix it back with the dry vocal etc).

On the other hand if you want to record only the effected signal you would simply arm the two channels to which the inputs coming back from your Lexicon are assigned for recording. This will get you a recording of the effected signal only.
Hope this helps you do what you are trying to do.

Cheers.

How can i assign diferent effects to indivdual tracks?


It's tough. For all that TASCAM touts this is not a user friendly system. I find that assigning compression to one track, removes my reverb from every track. It seems only one effect can be used at a time, and that effect effects them all. Tascam sucks. Never again!

Lost f/x across all tracks prior to Mastering on Roland 2480cd


Double check that you haven't inadvertently muted or turned down the effect returns. Also make sure they haven't been inserted elsewhere as they wont work as post effects while inserted into a single channel. If you are using some effects, it will cancel the effect card's ability to use its second channel. (ex. mastering suite)

Effects won't record or play back


Turn on the effect for the appropriate input or turn on the reverb. For the reverb you must turn up at least one tracks (the track you are using) effects send together with the Master effects return. The volume of the multi effect may need adjusting or the parameter of the effect is so low that the effect is too subtle to be noticed. Multi effect page 60 of the manual.

GENERAL QUESTION


Hi,

I believe what Tascam means by the 'effect loop' on the 2488Mk2 is simply a send loop within the device which internal effects can be set on (vs. a the 'send loop' which exists when you send a track out the sends, through an external effect device, and then back through one the the 2488 inputs). This effect loop is sent to the stereo bus as well as the bounce sub mix.

To use the internal effects in this way you'd select a track with the 'select' button for the track (or you can do multiple tracks by repeating this process for each track one at a time). Then press the send button and on the top of the screen you'll see the effects loop. Just set your send there to 100 or so and that track will be sent to the internal effect loop and be affected by whatever single effects you have turned on. To print these tracks with effects you can either premaster or create a bounce mix. Just make sure you mute any tracks you don't want in a bounce because a bounce will record anything which is on the stereo bus.

(See page 42 in your manual for Tascam's explanation for using the single effect and page 58 for how to create a bounce submix).

Hope this helps.

Guitar effects often disappear after recording


Hi Danny,

You seem to be aware already that the multi-effect acts like a traditional 'insert effect' on a mixer and as such can only be applied to one track/channel at a time (multiple effects / single channel). The problem you're asking about seems to be that the effect is not 'printing' during the recording of your track. Obviously the effect can't 'go away' after recording so it would appear that your guitar effect isn't being recorded (only monitored) when the track is being laid down.

My initial guess here would be that while recording you've been assigning the multi-effect to a channel vs an input. That would explain the effect being audible while monitoring, but the input still being recorded dry even though the effect is heard through the monitors.

So to get this working the way you expect you'd want to insure that you are indeed assigning the multi-effect to input from which your guitar is coming, rather than the track on which it is getting recorded.

Having said that, actually recording dry (like you are doing) and then applying the multi-effect to a new track via a 'bounce' is the way a lot of people (myself included) choose to accomplish this anyway. That way you preserve a dry track and can go back and 'redo' the effect (or choose a different effect instead) later on. It does however introduce another step and use up another virtual track (but the 2488 has 250 of them available which si a big reason the 2488 is so competitive).

Hope this helps.

Multi Effects?


Here's a run down of the 2488 effects. It should explain how to use them.......

Effects processors can be inserted into the appropriate channels simply by holding the required effect mode button and pressing the required channel selection button. When the effects are configured as eight channel insert effects, the processor can provide compression, de-essing or exciter functions (selectable independently in each of the eight installations).

If you only need four such insert effects, then you can substitute a single multi-effect processor for the other four. This multi-effect is most likely going to find its way into the guitar DI input, and offers a chain of effects starting with a noise-gate followed by either distortion or compression.

If you are happy to abandon channel insert effects entirely, then you can set up the effects block as a single send/return processor which provides somewhat higher-quality effects. Algorithms include reverb, pitch-shifting, delays, and so on, and are accessed by dialling in an amount of Loop Send from any appropriate mixer channels. There is no dedicated effects return channel as such, but the level of the chosen effect can be adjusted in the relevant control screen.

if the multitrack doesnt have built in effects you need to but an extrenal vocal effects processor that you can wire up to it. try lexicon products, they offer really good realistic vocal effects rack units.
