Tascam 2488 system error code 1


I had
System error code:01
on my Tascam 2488 neo
Turns out it was a hard drive error. I tried everything. I used the "Quick Routing/Shift/Send/ShutDown" trick where you press all four buttons at once and keep them pressed down throughout while you power on the unit util you see a message saying "System Reset Complete. Now Power Down". Numerous times it came on and said stuff like "creating partition," "creating song" and "now working" but it always ended with "System Error Code:01". That trick is upposed to reset system par?meters to default and erase everything from the hard drive and reset the hard drive. I even removed the hard drive, hooked it up to my Windows 10 PC and used Windows utils to reate and/or delete partitions and both "quick" and regular format. I also tried all the hard drive utils from the manufacturers like a formatting and a scrubbing util etc.,.nothing ?orked until I downloaded, inst?lled ?nd used a low level format utility called "Hard Disk Low Level Format Tool," its installation file is called "HDDLLFsetup.4.40.exe" which is available from mul?iple internet sites, just search for it. Here is how to repair your Tascam hard drive or prepare any new hard drive for installtion or upgrade that is giving endless problems and system error codes on the Tascam:
1. Open your recorder and remove the hard drive from the Tascam. If you're unsure about doing this there is a YouTube video av?iable about how to replace your Tascam 2488 hard drive.
2. Connect that drive by any means available to your laptop or PC. I used a USB to SATA ad?pter and connected it to my laptop, I also successfully did this using my desktop PC.
3. Run the "HDDLLFsetup.4.40.exe" application and install it.
4. Now use the newly installed "Hard Disk Low Level Format Tool" utility.
5. Select your hard drive then the low level format tab and don't sele?t the "quick" option, make sure it does a full low level format. It'll be slow and t?ke some time. Any hard dive prepared like this will ?ork in the Tasc?m except incompatible or damaged hard drives.
6. Reinstall hard drive into Tascam and simply power on the Tasc?m. Do not use any special boot up tricks with any key combinations, just turn it on.
7. Select "yes" when asked if you want to form?t the drive. W?it a few seconds until it completes cre?ting and working. It should boot up to normal use mode and be ready for recording within 3 minutes. If yours takes longer your hard drive may be damaged and need replacing. I tried other hard drive utilities from Hitachi, Seagate, S?msung and Western Digital but none worked. O?ly the "HDDLLFsetup.4.40.exe" was able to fix the problem.

Tascam md-350 "cannot copy" error


Like all home recorders, yours will not let you digitally record digital originals. The Serial Copy Management System (SCMS) is designed to prevent piracy.

Unfortunately it also means you cannot copy your own digital originals digitally.

Record them via the analog input. It will sound fine.

Hi, why is it when I have finished mastering a song and record it on to the cd burner on my tascam 2488 mk2 it playsback so much lower that it sounds out of my monitors?


This is a common problem and I would recommend searching the forums on VSPLANET.com where they have all sorts of info and discussions about recording.

It keeps locking up


I had a similar problem before mine completely crashed. Make sure you back up your data and have a look at the space you have left on each of your three partitions. Try to delete any unused track space before recording again.

Recording on cubase le4 using my tascam us122 mk2


You're probably not recording through your tascam interface. Go to control panel -> sound, and then select the us122 as your default sound device. Close cubase and open it again. Then go to devices -> device setup, and then under your asio drivers, select asio us122. That should solve it

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.

bd.
