If I plug in powered monitors to the digital input... will it get rid of my error code 02 displayed on the screen ?

Can i use my own electric guitar stomp box to record onto a tascam 2488 neo without miking an amp?


Yes, you should be able to go direct into the recording input if your guitar has a preamp in it and the 2488 may have adequate gain to even accept the input from a passive guitar.

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.

I'M TRYING TO BURN MUSIC FROM MY KORG TR76 TO THE 2488 AND WHEN THE RECORDING IS COMPLETE, ALL I GET IS THE 2488 DEMO. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?


It depends on whether you are trying to record audio or midi Which are two different formats and have separate connections. I will have to download the manuals for the keyboard and the recorder and read through them but I will try and help you if you would like.

The click track on my TASCAM 2488 Mk 2 won't click


There is likely an amplitude setting (probably available in a menu) for the click. Make sure that is turned up.
