Manual here:http://www.fullcompass.com/common/files/10255-Tascam%202488-neo%20manual.pdf If you look at the back you will see two effects sends. Apparently from the manual you can use the line inputs for returns. This is where it might become confusing. Each line in is also a TRS jack. That means that using a common guitar or unbalanced cable will make the jack act as an input. If you use a shielded !/4" stereo cable( stereo jacks on each end) then the jacks can send a signal and receive a signal. If your effects unit has one of these jacks also you just need the proper cable. If not you use a cable with ends that match your unit and the Tascam. There are several combinations of effects assignment available and you should consult the manual carefully. I would recommend joining a support or users forum for this unit. Try this one:http://www.sweetwater.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25978 or this one:http://homerecording.com/bbs/showthread.php?t=276889 The last one is a site worth joining and I highly recommend it.

Tascam 2488 neo mmc control


That seems to be in the midi time sync functions. In cakewalk under options find the midi settings and choose midi device. All of you clock and sync settings should be there. Also I think under the audio menu there are settings for folders and I think a tab for sync is there as well. I use Sonar, which is an upgrade of cakewalk but used cakewalk for a long time. I have it on another computer and will look later to see if I am forgetting something or remembered it wrong and let you know.

How to Set up Auxiliaries on a Mixer.


Here are some tips to set up the auxiliaries properly on your mixer:
  • Step1:
Your auxiliaries allow you to send the signal from a channel strip to somewhere else while maintaining the signal on the channel strip. For instance, you can use auxiliaries for monitor mixes for performers in a live environment. You can also use auxiliaries for external effects processors or a number of different situations.
  • Step2:
Set the auxiliaries to pre-fader to allow you to change the level for the auxiliary with the auxiliary knob but not with the channel fader. Most mixers have a "Pre" button that allows you to enable pre-fader mode. If you don't have the button pressed, your auxiliaries are in post-fader mode, which means your channel fader will affect the signal level of the auxiliary output. For monitor mixes, you usually want to use pre-fader so you can control monitor mixes independently from the front of house mix. Some effects processors will be better to run post-fader, though, so don't always rely on pre-fader.
  • Step3:
Send out your auxiliary sends. On the back of your board, you there are the auxiliary outputs. For a monitor mix, you will use these outputs to connect to the inputs of the monitors. When using an effects processor, you will use the auxiliary output to connect to the input of the effects processor.
  • Step4:
Plug in a return if necessary. If you are just doing monitors, you do not need returns to the mixer. When using effects processors though, you need a way to get your effected signal back to your mixer. Take the output of the effects processor and connect that to the return input on the back of the mixer. Now you will have to adjust the return section on your channel strip to get the desired signal.
  • Step5:
Use the auxiliary knob to set the desired level. Once you know if you are running pre- or post-fader, and you have your inputs and outputs all correct, you can start sending signal to your auxiliary output. Turn up the auxiliary knob until either your monitors are set correctly or until you have the desired amount of signal going to your effects processor or other outboard equipment.

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


Never go from a PA (powered (amplified)) speaker signal to the inputs of a recording device. This can severely damage the electronics of the input/preamp. That error code may be getting caused by something else. For more details on how to use digital ins:

What imput do i use for on/off footswitch


Sorry, this device does NOT have a footswitch input to control the effects processor. I would suggest using an external effects unit that does have a foot switch input using the FX send and Aux returns of this unit.

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.

How can i assign diferent effects to indivdual tracks?


It's tough. For all that TASCAM touts this is not a user friendly system. I find that assigning compression to one track, removes my reverb from every track. It seems only one effect can be used at a time, and that effect effects them all. Tascam sucks. Never again!

I'm using an external reverb (T.C. Electronics Nova) through the effects loop and I can only get verb out of one channel (left I think) and in fact it seems that the "stereo" section (knobs etc.) have no...


The external effects when used would require an effect processor with left and right channels. You need four cables total for the effects... the two channels out to the effect unit and two cables to bring it back to the power amps.

Remember to use your pan controls if you want certain inputs to go more to either the left or right outputs.
