I HAVE TASCAM AS U KNOW....DA PROBLES R LATENCY OVER 40 IN CUBASE
AND MORE MOOOOORE IN ABLETON , MY M AUDIO AUDIOPHILE STUDIO MONITORS
AND TASCAM ARE IN RCA TO XLR. DONT KNOW WHAT 2 DO , MY PROJECTS STOPS
IN CUBASE AND IN ABLETON OH GOD I DON\T IVEN HAVE ONE CHANCE TO WORK,,,

1. make sure your incoming signal is not too strong, this is i think the most common reason for clipping.
2. check the settings under audio performance in tascam control panel.. for vista click start> all programs > tascam> control panel> try changing the latency to normal or whatever works best with your system.
I never seem to have this problem anymore since I upgraded my desktop, with my slower system I had this problem all the time, so badly it was impossible to record an entire track.
You're probably not recording through your tascam interface. Go to control panel -> sound, and then select the us122 as your default sound device. Close cubase and open it again. Then go to devices -> device setup, and then under your asio drivers, select asio us122. That should solve it
To see if it's your hardware, up your latency settings to "highest" via the tascam control panel. Also, be sure you are familiar with the various ways to up latency in your recording package: in cubase it's under device settings, vst bay. If this works, you know it's some setting somewhere. Try disabling your internet connections and setting pc performance to "background services" Also, read a pc optimization guide for daws - they are everywhere. Tascam will email one to you if you ask.
Lastly - try the asio4all driver. This fixed my pops, but when I understood all the various latency settings and set the tascam to highest latency, I could use the tascam driver. Highest latency on my p4 3.0 2gb ram pc means 12ms input and my output is 61ms.
If the asio4all driver works - it's a likely latency issue.
Even my q6600 clocked at 3.6 Ghz gives me 12ms latency. It turns out the tascam highest latency is 12ms also on my p3 3.0 ghz pc. I haven't tried the tascam on my q6600 - I use an Emu 1820m on that. But try testing the tascam on a really fast computer. It's probably your dell's middling motherboard that's the slow down as well as all the extra stuff installed on dell's and especially notebooks that are robbing the usb bus of it's bandwidth. In most cases with the tascam, it's the pc or a low latency setting. If you want a great card for serious work: The EMU 1616m pcmcia card is a great card! Even SoundonSound loves them. Emu just makes great soundcards that rival any card out there for the best prices. Emu also gives the most control via it's excellent PatchMix software, but Patchmix does require an average IQ and about 10 minutes of reading.
Im using Vista on a Sony Vaio FW11E with Core 2 Duo Processor. 3Gig ram. Its not working properly with me either. Its a loan of a mates. Ableton and Windows Media Player just keep stopping for a second every few seconds! Very annoying!
You are correct, there is no "voice generator" within the Tascam US-144. It can simply transmit the very primitive note-on note-off type data to a Sound Module or keyboard (like a Roldan SoundCanvas), and then that would generate the actual waveforms.
A SoundCanvas would suit your needs well, as you could run the midi out to this voice generator, and then run the stereo output of that back through the Tascam and into the computer for recording.
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.
