Hi, The firewire connection on my tascam fw-1804 has suddenly stopped working. I have tried replacing the cable and re-installing the drivers and still haver the problem. Can anyone help please? I'm...


First thing I would look into is the machine that has the other firewire port. Many machines use firewire ports that do not work well at all with professional audio interfaces. I had to replace my firewire card with a better one on a brand new machine to get my software to work correctly.
You might try rebooting the host machine and checking its firewire ports.
Hope this helps.

My firewire suddenly stopped working!!!


I had the same problem after re-installing windows. The firewire just didnt work on the tascam interface. I managed to solve the problem by upgrading from windows xp to windows vista. I downloaded the vista drivers from the tascam site and everything sprang back into action. Problem solved! Hope this helps.

TASCAM FW-1804 FIREWIRE PROBLEM


I have a Tascam 1804, and i've had the same problem. Mostly with Latency issues. For me, replacing the firewire chord with a gold plated one worked. PLUS, remember that the firewire connection is technically considered a NETWORK connection which is modified by whatever controls your network activity (ie. Firewall, Anti-Virus). Whenever i start to use my Tascam, i make sure I disable my WiFi and other Internet/network related items so they dont cross interfere with activity in my firewire port. hope this helps.

Computer freezing while using Tascam 122l


Hi

I would perhaps try to reinstall the drivers for the device, and be sure that under audio settings, you have the Tascam set as the default device. Try this and get back to me here if it still gives you problems.

FW-1804 sounds keeps skipping and cutting out!


I've tried multiple times to set up the 1804 with my mac pro...so far no go...the computer hasn't been recognizing the unit. I've installed, uninstalled, reinstalled a few times, made sure I had the right 6 pin fw cable, plugged it in when prompted, and still, the control box of the 1804 states there is no available device. I did downloaded the most current version. Before I go through this process again, do you have any advice on some more possible kinks?

Tascam us 144 sync problems with cubase le


Hey lea,

i have a similar setup (Cubase LE & Tascam 144) and each time i start up Cubase i have to make sure there is no digital input going to the tascam. once cubase is started up but no project loaded i plug in my spdif from my DAT machine and then open my project and all is fine. does that answer part of your question?

i have a different problem though, i'm trying to record my DAT tapes which are recorded at 32khz and cubase doesn't recognize that sample rate properly. it'll record no problem, and play them back fine, but exporting always creates mismatched sample rates in the exported file. sucks big time and i have got no idea on how to fix it either.

Problem with tascam dm 24


Firstly well done for buying an excellent quality mixer. I take it you are referring to a software sequencer (if not why not) to take advantage of the DM24's firewire streaming and eliminate the need for a separate audio interface.

A choice of sequencer really depends on your application as they all have varying strengths and weaknesses, however one thing they all have in common is that the DM24 can be used as a control surface for all the major sequencers.

Cubase - easy to learn and user friendly, however the selection of virtual midi instruments and effect plugins is pretty limited and not great quality. Also it can be a bit unstable if you are using arrangements with lots of recorded audio parts. Its more at home with MIDI applications where you either have your own outboard synths or you have purchased a good set of softsynths.

Logic (Mac only) - Not quite as intuitive to use, however the selection of virtual instruments and FX bundled with the package are excellent quality. Also is a lot more stable for audio applications since it has been programmed to make more economical use of your system resources. This is a good choice if you are multitracking bands and have a lot of audio parts to deal with.

Sonar - this is basically the PC equivalent of Logic though there are a few differences.

Pro Tools- the biggie, and also the most expensive! This is a good all rounder, not had a huge amount of experience with it myself but pretty much every pro studio in the world uses tools and the built in plug ins are second to none.

Note all these have LE (learning edition) versions as well as the full versions, where the LE's are slightly stripped down versions of the full. Look at what your requirements are and make a decision based on whether you are likely to use the advanced functions of the full versions.

Finally if you have the budget, have a look at Reason. This is a virtual synth rack and can be used either stand alone or plugged into your main sequencer. Loads of excellent drums sounds, one great synth, one OK synth, the rex player which is excellent, and a good sampler. If you can justify the cost its well worth having.

you might want to downgrade to xp because vista uses alot of ram to run it. you could also get more ram. you need about 1gb and a half to 2 gigs to run most recording softwares and interfaces. i personally use vista cause i lost my xp disk and i got 2 gbs of ram and everything runs great, but if you really want to get into recording do what im doing and save up and buy a mac.
