You should always work in wav format if possible because there is a loss of quality with mp3 which is a compression format in which bits are lost in order to compress the file size.
There are a number of wav editors available which will allow you to load a stereo wav and then save it as a mono wav. The free one I use is called Audacity.
When working with FL or Reason I will sometimes import files to the Tascam, or I will take the outputs from my PCs sound card and line them into the tacams inputs and record them live. I only tend to do this with programs (like synths) where I am using an external midi keyboard and can play live what I want to record.
With basic drum pattern tracks I'll usually create them on the PC, save as wav, convert to mono, and then import to a track on the Tascam.
This will reinitialize it to the factory settings. All data (music) will be lost.
With the 2488 turned OFF
Simultaneouly, hold down the Quick Routing, Shift, Send and Shut Down buttons.
With all buttons pressed .... turn the 2488 ON.
It shoulld go through the normal boot up screens, including a screen that states ' partitioning drive', etc. When finished it will show ' Factory Settings Reinitialized - Reboot (or something like that) and you are done.
I have the original 2488 as well, and tried everything recommended to address the HDD lockups.
I think I know why Tascam eliminated the Tone Generator (Drums) on the MKII and Neo versions.
Too much for the processor to handle?? Hope this helps.
No. Unfortunately you are stuck with the drum kits and standard midi that come with the 2488. I find the tone generator sounds to be pretty good on the 2488 quality-wise at least. Of course having the versatility of swapping in other kits and tones/samples would be nice. I believe Tascam discontinued the tone generator/drum machine on subsequent models of 2488 because it seems that the demand wasn't there.
