There isn't. The closest you can get seems to be this program called T2488 from MixerMuse which allows you to control the 2488 from a PC via a graphic interface.

http://www.mixermuse.com/

It was designed for the PC, but the author has stated that this program may allow it to be ported to the Mac.

I haven't used the MixerMuse program myself but I've heard some good things about it and it certainly might be worth a look.

Cheers.

They sell a module to install in the tascam. Works really well.

Samsung Syncmaster 2032BW problem


Hi Ray. Does anything happen to the Mac's display or is it just on the monitor? In system preferences go to the Displays section, and with the 'Display" tab selected, click on the Detect Displays button.
This normally lets the Mac work out what is attached and sets the parameters accordingly. If it still doesn't work, try using another video cable. I have have had a number of instances with external monitors where the problem has been a faulty lead.If that still fails. Try the monitor on another device if you can - does it work there?

Just got the Tascam 2488 neo. I'm concerned that due to the size of the room I can't place the unit far enough away from the speakers to ensure I don't damage the unit with electro magnetic fields....


Assuming you are talking about your monitors for your 2488, the first thing I'd do is to consult the manual for proper placement of the monitors relative to the 2488. A quick rule of thumb is to place the monitors at ear level to the left and right of the 2488 so when you sit facing the 2488 yo will have one monitor facing each ear essentially. Again, consult your monitor manual as it will show the best placement and don't worry about electrical fields, etc. I have my monitors to the left and right of the 2488, the 2488 in the center and a 21" flat screen computer display in the center of all that with no problems whatsoever. That is the accepted practice generally speaking. Hope this helps.

Connect yamaha keyboard to tascam 2488 MKII


There are 8 inputs on the back. 4 of them support XLR type microphone connections, but also double as 1/4 inch and the remaining four are just 1/4 inch. These are all line level inputs and you can use any of them for a keyboard hookup. Typically you might leave the XLR inputs (A thru D) available for mics and take the next two (E and F) to use from your keyboards L and R outputs. Then just assign those inputs to two adjacent channels (tracks) or one of the stereo pairs, turn up the input levels for those inputs and the faders for those tracks and you'll be able to hear the keyboard playing through the 2488 (or whatever monitors/or stereo you have hooked up to it for monitoring). To record the keyboard simply arm whatever tracks you have those inputs assigned to for recording and record away.

Electron Blue IV monitor: wrong mirror display with Mac 10.5.5


Is the mirroring still taking place or just on the one display.  If it just on the Macbook, go to the display settings and select the arrangement button, there should be a mirror button there.

You could add an HGR monitor interface module to display the 2488 on a PC monitor.

That way you don't need to look at a damaged display and the 2488 (MK1, MKII and NEO) work just like before.

Repartition and format the hard drive. There are specific instructions elsewhere on the Internet. I did this about six months ago. I believe my problem came about after I stored my 2488 on top of my monitors - I believe the exposure to the magnetic fields corrupted the boot partition on the drive.

2488 Mk 1.


Hi Mike,

To reset the 2488 to factory defaults: Simultaneously press quick routing/shift/send/shutdown & turn on the unit.

The 'stop' button problem may require a look under the cover to see if the button is dirty or damaged under there. A good cleaning might do it. As for the 'no guitar out the monitors' issue, this sounds like it might have something to do with the setting of the monitor selector. Make sure it's set to 'stereo' and not effect loop or effect send or even muted. You might want to also make sure your monitor level pot is working properly.

Best of luck.

In the monitor section on the 2488 console (upper right) make sure your monitoring source is set to 'stereo'. Then make sure your 'monitor level' control is turned up. The 'stereo' fader (sub mix fader on the MKI, stereo fader on the MKII).
