Question about Tascam US-144 Sound Card

1 Answer

Volume faders in mixer don't respond.

Is the volume level in CUBASE LE automatic? When I use the volume faders the volume level is not changed. How do I get CUBASE LE to respond to the volume faders? I have a Dell laptop running Windows Vista Business.

    My problem is that I can't adjust the input volume at all. Not by using the mixer, the volume line on the track or the volume control to the left side of the track.

I hate to attempt to offer any suggestions for a person using CUBASE LE, since I am not a very successful user, myself. However, I may have a suggestion for you. First, the level sliders in CUBASE are not automatic (unless there is some setting I'm unaware of).

Are you attempting to change the volume of a track that is on your timeline? If so, I don't believe the sliders effect that. Instead, levels are changed by a "rubberband" method.

On your existing track, (the one you wish to modify volume on) you will notice a small + in the lower left hand corner, near the edge of your screen. If you click on that, the track is enlarged, and you will see another version of your audio track with a black line drawn horizontally through it. That line may be dragged up or down to increase or decrease volume.

Right now, my system is not working, so I can't quite remember the procedure, but you can place points on that black line to adjust volume up and down for select portions of your track, and not the entire track.

I think that's done by first clicking on the "R" associated with that track. Then, your cursor becomes capable of placing points, and you can adjust volume between the placed points.

I hope this helps. Best of luck.

Sound plays but very low volume even if plug to speakers and amplifier and full volume, you hardly hear anything. Hoping for a solution. Regards,

right click on the speaker icon in the system tray on the bottom right side of the screen and then click to open the volume mixer then make the speaker sound level to 100 %.

or go to the control panel from there click on the sound or speaker icon to open it after that go to properties and then make the volume level to 100%.

This should help to fix the problem.

I have a HP laptop w 3 gigs ram and 350 gigs hard drive running on win vista 32 bit. Everytime I try to import or export this system hangs up and it says cubase Le is not responding.

This sounds like a driver problem. You can download vista drivers for Cubase from here, which should fix your problem.

Recording with cubase problem

Need to set it to stereo. There may be a switch on your mixer, and you will also need to change the settings in Cubase to record in stereo, not mono.

Weak playbakc signal when usinh firewire card in my Mackie 1220

I have had this same problem. I don't have a fix for it, but I have noticed that I can make it go away if I increase the signal strength going back to the Mackie card to an extreme level (by spiking the volume on my cubase software mixer). This seems to make the connection better for some reason.
I would love to learn what is causing this.

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.
