Question about Tascam US-224 Sound Card

Mac OS X 10.4.11 doesn't recognize Tascam US-224

Hi there,
I've recently become a Mac user and when trying to plug my Tascam US-224 to my Macbook, it's like the computer ignores it. It doesn't appear anywhere and therefore, I can't get any sound out of my keyboard, mic, etc
I've made sure I've got the right drivers (I've downloaded version 3.2.3) but no icon appears on the desktop when the device is plugged in and when I click on the 'US-224 Manager' window, I only see that it's simply not available. No MIDI signal, no audio,... nothing... However, it used to work fine when I used it with my old Windows.
Please can you help? Many thanks in advance. AV

    Can you let me know which drivers you installed? I have tried the driver installation from the Tascam website for the 224 (Universal Binary v3.40 dated 2007-07-17) but the device is still undetected when I plug in. The US-224 manager application says no device found.

After a google, I found this:

The audio sputtered when I first installed the US-224 on my laptop, but that's a common USB problem on PCs that have too many applications running in the background. The audio and controller functions worked after I ran msconfig.exe and turned off all of the unnecessary startup items, but I still heard an annoying stutter. I solved the problem by tweaking the buffer settings in the US-224's control panel and in my audio applications (Steinberg Nuendo and Syntrillium Cool Edit Pro).

Hi! My computer (Macbook pro) doesn't seem to recognize my Nikon Coolscan IV software and I get the following message


You've not said what the message is but I suspect that the software is too old to be used on the macbook if it is running OS X 10.7 (Lion) or if you are running snow leopard, it may be a non-intel version of the software. It may be asking you to instal rosetta which would be on your snow leopard instal disk.

If the Nikon website does not have updated software you could try vuescan which according to this page http://www.hamrick.com/vuescan/nikon_coolscan_iv_ed.html does work with the film scanner and you can download a demo version which you can trial before you buy. Hope this helps.

Tascam 2488MK11 hard drive problem


Hi I had exactly the same problem with my Macintosh, it worked fine until recently but suddenly stopped working. As a matter of fact it is probably due to a compatibility issue of the USB driver after a recent software update of MacOSX drivers. Fortunately I have an old Macbook pro with an old version of MacOSX and the Tascam showed up immediatly and USB worked fine. Therefore, if ou can downgrade your USB driver it might solve the problem.

Sound module & mic (connected to a Tascam US-224) not working


I may be able to help.  I am a longtime Mac and Tascam control surface user.  I am currently running a MacBook Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz running OS 10.5.6 with a Tascam FW-1884 audio interface/mixer/control surface connected.

Setup is fairly easy in the Mac OS.  Here are the steps I'd follow:

NOTE: Before beginning the following process make sure that ALL of your MIDI gear is connected.

- Tascam connected to USB port of computer
- MIDI Keyboard "OUT" connected to Tascam "IN"
- Roland "IN" connected to Tascam "OUT"

1) Open your "Applications" folder.
2) Open the "Utilities" folder.
3) Double-click on "Audio MIDI Setup."
4) At the top of the window select "MIDI Devices"
5) In the pull-down menu on the left select "New Configuration."
6) Title your configuration and press "OK"
7) If your gear has been detected automatically their names and icons should appear in the main window.  If so, skip down to step 12
8) Click on the "Add Device" button
9) Double-click on the "new external device" button that has now been created.
10) Select your device's manufacturer and model (i.e. Roland, JV-1010).
11) Adjust any other settings appropriate to your setup.

[In the main window there should be a Tascam US-224 button.  On it there should be one pair of arrows that indicate the MIDI In and MIDI Out ports of the device.]

12) Click (and hold) on the MIDI Out arrow of the US-224 button.
13) Drag the "cord" and attach it to the MIDI In of the Roland JV-1010 button.
13) Click (and hold) on the MIDI In arrow of the US-224 button.
14) Drag the "cord" and attach it to the MIDI Out of the "keyboard" button.

This should get you setup from a Mac OS/Device routing perspective.  For the appropriate US-224 Control Panel settings refer to the User Manual.

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.
