SOURCE: power cut out on tascam x9

Since nothing else is working, the cooling fan is probably powered by AC at line voltage.

The power supply that feeds the electronics has failed but it may not be catastrophic; it might just be an internal fuse that has given up from metal fatigue.
Each time current flows when powered up, the delicate element expands and then contracts when the power is turned off.
Some fuses have a zig-zag crimp in the element that helps delay the eventual death.

With the unit unplugged, remove whatever screws you find on the back or bottom of the mixer so you can peer inside.
If you are lucky, you may find the fuse in a clip or otherwise plugged in.
There will definitely be one in the incoming AC line although if the fan is running, this one may be OK.
There could be one (or more) fuses on the DC side that directly services the circuitry.
Fuses come in a variety of cases; they can be cylindrical of glass or ceramic bodies with metal caps on the ends and of varying lengths.
Others may be vertically mounted smaller cylinders plugged into or soldered (bad) to the board.
Some are nearly indistinguishable in size and mounting from several other types of parts; these though, will not have other than simple text on the part while the others will have more complex markings.
If you find and replace fuses, buy two so that an eventual tech doesn't have to grub around to find one.

If you replace any fuses and they fail again, DON'T proceed. You may damage the unit further and not help anything.

At that point, you need to turn it over to a tech.

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.

SOURCE: no effects

Internal effects, press 'SELECT' then press 'SEND' then, depending on which type of effect you want, press 'SINGLE' or 'MULTIPLE' & scroll up or down.

SOURCE: Recently purchased the Tascam 2488 Neo Digital/Microphone Effects

Assuming you have your mic plugged in properly and all is working well save for this one issue, do as follows: press the SELECT button on the track/channel which has the mic on it. Then press the SEND button over to the right of all the tracks. The button is right under the EQ button. After you press the SEND button, a screen opens up and you can send reverb to that channel/track...as much as you want. I hope this helps.

I use 5 out of 6 aux. for monitor...That leaves only 1 aux. for delay/reverb. is there another way to hook up delay/reverb to mixer?...SR24-4 mackie mixer...


It sounds like you're new to 'professional' mixers. You would NEVER normally use an aux for effects. Any effects will normally be inserted in the sound chain using an insert. You have a pair of group inserts if you are wanting to apply an effect to the output (these are after the mix) and would typically be used for master de-essers or possibly compressor limiters or maybe even an equaliser, it would not be sensible to use an effect like a delay/reverb here.

I would have expected you to be using the group outs for the monitor mixes and am not sure what you may be using them for otherwise. If you used these you would free up 4 of the Aux outs for a 'multi channel' reverb/echos which you could take back into other channels and back into the main mix.

What is it you are tyring to achieve?

What preset effect number is best for karaoke?


Always use echo and reverb, or just reverb for inexperienced singers. If I remember right this is from effect 19 but this is a very inflexible set-up with no control over the effects, just presets. You'll need to listen and decide what is best. You may also try chorus as with a decent effects unit this can be very effective plus a bit of reverb and echo.

Different songs like different effects and we will chop and change even in a single track when live mixing professional acts.

User manual for DOD DFX9 DIGITAL DELAY GUITAR PEDAL


Can't find a manual but can still explain. Delays, chorus, flangers, and reverbs are all the same effect except the different names of them will allow you different adjustments. Chorus usually has a width control which controls pitch shifting. Flangers and delays will have a feedback control which simply means, how many times you hear the echo. On reverb units, room size means how long of echo(even though it;s short) you want. Delay is the same with much longer echo, feedback is the same as on flangers except the flangers time is very short meaning the effect is at almost the exact time resulting in feedback causing a metalic sound. I probaly just confused you but good digital delays usually have all the features and will usually do all 4 effects depending on how you set them. If you want delay, set width on 0 and adjust time and feedback. For flanging, adjust width and speed and feedback. Chorusing, adjust time, width, and speed. Reverb, adjust time, set width on 0, and feedback. I see it has a level(mixture, how much effect you hear), and a replay(feedback, how many times you hear it), and a delay knob,(how long the echo will be) The range/mode switch allows for settings of diferent time lengths and INF setting allows for infinite repeat. Hope this helps.

How do i use the effects loop on peavey xr 600b?


plug the effects out into the input of your reverb/echo unit, plug the out put of the processor into an unused channel in the mixer, do NOT turn up the effects in that channel, to hear the effects in the main use the main level, to hear effects in the monitor use the monitor level. you must turn up the the effect send in the channel you want to hear the effects on and also the effects master.

Long delay between singing into mic and hearing voice in speakers


Usually delay is associated with "reverb" not echo. If you are in a large room, the room acoustics can add reverb without the benefit of signal processing.

Reverb NORMALLY passes the inout signal as is and then adds in a delayed version on top.

The delay should be less than the room size delay.

Try turning off all effects as a start. There is some "transport" time if it goes through a digital signal processing.

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.
