Use an external Analog Stereo mixing board and run its stereo Line outs to the Stereo Line inputs of the Tascam US 144. keep the pan pots centered. Once its recorded you can pan where ever. Of course Stereo Drums come out stereo, just make sure your Drum mix is correct and balanced going in. I had the same problem to, of Mono this Mono that, till I started using my Board again.

PS: I had to buy an external Phantom Power supply also
since I couldn't use the Tascams anymore.
Also your tracks will sound better going in
using a board. You can EQ and Compress

Stereo requires two different inputs, as the very name implies. If you're using just one mic, it is possible to "pan" that input to both left and right, but is not truly stereo. For true stereo, you must have at least 2 mics, or 2 or more of any other sources...accordianman

    Be sure that you are not running ANY other sound card/onboard audio at the same time. This will cause Major latency on your applications. To check for other sound card/onboard enabling, go to Verify that there is only ONE audio card running. If this is not the case, reboot your system and enter the BIOS settings. Configure as needed...accordianman

    Okay, if you've tried everything else, I can only think of one more thing. Get a very good anti-virus program loaded up and run it. After that, run CCleaner, a pretty good program in itself, downloadable from the net. I like AVAST for my Anti-virus, and I use AD_AWARE se personal for my anti-spy. I'm not saying that you have to use these programs, but if all else has failed, you might try this....accordianman

Hello,
What model is your mic? Some mic's need the phantom power switch turned on. I have the US-144u and it works great with my RODE NT1-A both on MAC and PC. What software are you using to record with?

I'm no expert in sound cards but I know some stuff about music recording, when sound is distorted you can see the wave you recorded as a flat in both top and bottom parts of the wave, this happens when the inpu to mic or "mic volume level" is too high, try decreasing the volume level of your mic via recording software or use the small speaker icon in the lower right part of windows taskbar to get to the windows default sound card's properties, get to the mic lever and lower it at will to get the desired volume level you need.

See if this solves your problem, if not don't hesitate to reply with some more info to see if I can help.

I am having problems with my Tascam Da-88 8


Maybe you could just clean the heads. If anything visible comes off they're TOO dirty. Or or look at it yourself with a strong light source and see the wear by evaluating reflections from the head surface.

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.

Microphone Recording


It all has to do with your VST Connections in Cubase LE (if you are using Cubase LE).

What you have to do is:
1)Go in and label you inputs and outputs in the Device Setup. Select " US 122L-US 144" Here your inputs and outputs should be displayed. You should be able to see which input is "active" and which ones are "inactive".

2) After noting which ones are active label these devices. Click the "Show As" section and label you "active" outputs as speakers or whatever you like. Also label you inputs which should be your mic or MIDIs.

3) After labeling, click " VST System Link" and make sure the correct input and output is selected, Example: (Input: AKG Perception 220, Out-put: Speakers/ Headphones) Hit Ok!

4) Bring up the "VST Connections" menu (F4) or (Device> VST Connections). Clear out all your outputs and inputs!

5) In your outputs click "Add Bus" Select stereo and 1. This should come up as whatever you labeled the outputs ( Speakers/Headphones for me!)

6) In your inputs click " Add Bus" Select Mono and 2. Here is where you should get one input that says the name of your input( AKG Perception 220 in L) The one below it should be ( US-144 Analog R or L) Click this and choose your Microphone! You should have the 2 options with your microphone named.

7) Test it (record something) and see if it works and plays in both ears if you want more clarification feel free to message me!!!!!!!

I HOPE THIS WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just bought a DP-02 w/40gb hard drive


Hi,

You'll first need to find some aux audio out jacks on your karaoke machine. You might need an adapter, but the basic idea will be to connect the aux out from the karaoke machine to an input on your Tascam DP-02.

Then on the DP-02 you need to assign whatever input your plugged into to one of the 8 tracks. Let's say you're using the left input (input A) and want to put the karaoke music on track 1. You'll press the 'Assign A' button on the DP-02 and while holding it then press the 'Rec' button of track 1. The 'Rec' button will flash rapidly to show its been assigned. (for reference: assigning an input is better described on page 23 of the manual). Then you'll want to arm track 1 to record. Press the 'rec' button for track 1 and it will start to flash slowly to show it has been armed for recording. Now you are ready to start recording. On the DP-02 press the large round play and record buttons on the lower right together to start recording and start your karioke machine playing. When the song is done press stop on the DP-02.

Now to record your vocals you'll need your mic to be plugged in (lets' say it's in input B). You'll need to assign this input to a free track (track 2). Press the 'Assign B' button and while holding it press the 'Rec' button for track 2 (rec button will flash rapidly). Then you'll want to un-arm track 1 and arm track 2 for recording. To do this press the 'rec' button for track 1 so that the light goes off and then press the 'rec' button for track 2 so that it flashes slowly.

So now when you press play and record together to record, you'll hear track 1 playing (the karaoke track you recorded earlier) and you'll be recording vox on track 2. Of course you'll also be recording whatever you hear in the room onto track 2 along with your singing, so in order to get a clean recording there (prevent bleed) you'll want to plug some headphones into the DP-02 and listen to those as you record.

That's pretty much all there is to it. Some variations if you wish to record the karioke in stereo vs mono (I gave you the instructions for mono here), and you may need to turn on phantom power if you have a non-powered mic, but the idea is basically the same.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

Recording on cubase


Remember when recording in 24-bits, you have 8 bits EXTRA over 16-bit recording, per voltage sample.  This means that for each voltage step that would be recorded in a 16-bit recording, a 24-bit recording will take 256 steps!  In other words, the fidelity is MUCH greater, so even if your levels seem low, that can be OK, since you have around 100 dB of headroom to play with, and can increase the signal many times with acceptable fidelity.  What you DON'T want to do in digital recording is CLIP, which is a virtually unrecoverable fault in the recording.

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.
