SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Tascam 238 tape deck

Common problem with these decks-the capstan motor needs to be replaced- A DIY job if you are careful and have some mechanical common sense- Tascam still sells these motors, around $100

SOURCE: load imported songs on tascam dp02 cf

Make sure you have the song loaded first. In this case it sounds like you are importing into a new song, so make sure that you have a new song created and loaded prior to importing.

Then go to the menu by pressing the 'MENU' sutton and from there select 'WAVE' and then 'IMPORT TRACK'. You'll see the list of wav files on the fat partition of the CF media displayed. Select the wav file with your beat track on it (use the DATA DIAL or up/down arrow buttons to highlight the right wav file) and press the 'YES/ENTER' button. You'll be prompted for the track to import into. Select Track01 and press the 'Yes/Enter' button again and the WAV file will be read and inported into track 1.

Please note that the wav file should be a 44.1 kHz, 16-bit and a mono wav before trying to import it. If the beat track was created as a stereo wav you'll have to go into a wav editor like Audacity and resave the file as a mono wav file first. Also for a wav with a bit rate higher than 16-bit, the DP-02 is going to truncate the bits rather than dither and this might effect quality adversly so you might want to make sure that the file is properly saved as 16-bit prior to attempting an import to avoid this.

Hope this helps.

Tascam 424 portastudio mkII power supply


My mistake this is a 424 mkIII not a mkII. Sorry for the typo. Great news is I opened the power supply case and un-soldered the fuse. cleaned it off with tarn-x and behold 3 amps 250 volts. Definatly worth the $1.00 im gonna have to pay for that. As for the **** that was gonna charge me a $100 bucks. There is a reason you are doing that to people. And one day your services will be obsolete.

Having problems recording and playing back tascam dc-02 cf


I'm assuming you are plugging the left and right outputs from the karaoke machine into input A and B of the Tascam to record the stereo output of the Karioke. The Tascam works with mono only (you recreate the stereo mix at mixdown or when bouncing mono tracks together with the panning set). Therefore you should be assigning inputs A and B separately. You could press assign A and then the record button above track 1 and then press assign B and the record button above track 2. Then arm tracks 1 and 2 (by pressing record above each). When you then press play and record together you'll record input A onto track 1 and input B onto track 2.

Hope this helps.

Tascam MF-P01 recorder


Hi

I have found Tascam to be an excellent provider of service and spares over the years. Parts can be purchased through a Tascam Authorised Service center. Or you can generally deal direct with them if you are repair guy. You can find one near to you at this site. . Enter your state if you are in the USA, or select the region you are in at the top of the web page where it says global, and away you go. If you have any problems sorting it out, feel free to get back to me and I will help you as best I can. A FixYa is a great reward for helping you to source your part. Cheers
