Question about Tascam FW-1804 Sound Card

1 Answer

Only a signal for one speaker comming back from interface input.

I am only getting one, presumably stereo channel back in my headphones. This happens when I just monitor the inputs on the interface and also from the computer on cubase le.
Any assistance would be great.
P.S This is a newly set up system and I have vertually no experience with digital recording etc.
Headphones have been tested and are working fine.

    When I monitor the computer from Cubase SX, I get stereo in my headphones. I can only monitor the live inputs on one (right) channel. Is this a flaw in my 1804?

I am not getting a bluetooth signal from my car stereo. Can this be fixed?

Does specification of your cr stereo say it has bluetooth? If it says, does it has a switch-on function? Look at manual, in setting! Once bluetooth is on, it should start sync with other device, headphone ir speaker, presume

Lost sound in left channel?

I presume you are playing a stereo cd. Plug some other device, like headphones in to see if the computer is putting out stereo. Use the same plug as the speaker system is plugged into.
I presume you have swapped the speakers to test them.
If the speakers work, and the headphones work, it's the amp.

Behringer mixer Eurorack UB802 is losing partial stereo signal in one channel. When I record (audacity software) I can hear both channels but displays one channel. Is it my computer's audio jack t

Sounds like the output cable from the 802 is not correctly pinned to your input on the computer. Fred is on the right track but you may need to take it a bit further.
It may also be helpful to use a Pro USB audio interface such as the Digigram UAX220v2 (line level version).
If you wish to use the computer's on board sound card consider an IHF/Pro interface that converts balanced audio to unbalanced , and the proper cables. Two 3-wire balanced 1/4-inch from the 802 to the left and right inputs of the interface (XLR Male), then RCA (Red and White) to a 1/8-inch TRS Plug cable onto the the computers audio input.
Henry Engineering's Matchbox HD comes to mind.
Good Luck.

I am only hearing audio out of my left headphone speaker when plugged into the Tascam US-122. how can I play back my tracks and have the audio fill both speakers?

you might be using a mono output jack or input jack.....check the jack end...1 ring = mono / 2 rings = stereo
make sure your sending a stereo signal in, then check the L/R balance.

Music have no base????

If you're relying on the internal GPS speaker(s) to reproduce the sound, those tiny speakers will not be able to create the deep bass that you're used to hearing through your car or home stereo.

A better way would be to use the headphone jack to supply the input of an FM stereo transmitter, and then tuning the car radio to the same frequency of the transmitter. You can use the headphone jack to send the sound signals to a cassette adapter or even a line input jack on your stereo instead of the transmitter if you prefer.. it all depends on what you have that accepts a signal - in this case FM radio, cassette player, or auxiliary input on the stereo. Of course, you could also use a headphone - but that would probably get you a ticket as most places have laws prohibiting their use while driving.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Sound through headphones only.

Try the speakers on another computer, to see if they work at all. If they do, then the problem is the audio-interface on your computer (or DVD-player, or home-stereo system).

How to hook up stereo speakers to your computer? on back of the stereo has a blue and red wires on the back.

You not only need the speaker but the amplifier [the main body of the stereo...where your Volume is] First make sure you have an input option at the back of the stereo,if your connector is different [e.g. you have stereo jack for the CPU and your stereo takes in RC only] you don't have to worry about that,,,connectors are available. Attach the wire from the CPU to the Stereo,on the stereo select the input option from the front [it would be aux or any other option that corresponds to any external player attached] Play on. Let me know if any other queries...

Dell 5650 speaker wire adapter

As I understand it, this adapter is used ONLY to adapt a standard 2-channel stereo output to the 3, 1/8" plugs of the Dell 5650 5.1 system. These 3 plugs would normally plug into the front, rear, and center/sub outputs on a computer designed to output 5.1 channel sound.

To make this clear, what this means is that the output you get from your 2-channel stereo system, using this adapter with the Dell 5650 5.1 system, will NOT be full 5.1 surround will be 2-channel stereo signals intermixed so that it plays from the 5650 system through the Dell amplifiers and speakers...nothing more.

This cannot be over-emphasized. The adapter does NOT create true 5.1 sound from a 2-channel stereo output system.

If you are hoping to get true 5.1 output from a 2-channel stereo system, you will be disappointed.

All this adapter likely does is split/mix some of the 2-channel signal into the rear channel, and split/mix some of the SAME 2-channel signal into the center-sub channel, just so you will get some output from those speakers. There may be some low-pass filtering for the sub-woofer input.

It is almost certainly a very simple passive circuit consisting of resistors, capacitors, and possibly an audio transformer or two.

Look for circuit on Do-It-Yourself electronic sites and build it yourself...or you're almost certain to be ripped-off.
