Ok question when you play music is off cd or comp. or mp3 player
reason i ask is cause some cd formats and songs come with the distortion on them the manufacture does not see this cause mass production in cd's
turn onto a receiver fm tuner if static is still there power failure is common in the power house inside receiver these require maintenance and probably new power house conductor

dust in the system can create static also hair and dust are magnatized this can distort the sound quality professional cleaning of system is probably needed in this case

I get no response from my Tascam US-144 and windows 7.


Go to program,look for tascam folder and adjust channel 1&2 to analog.This should make your music program work fine.And then do research on both analog and digital recording.

The click track on my TASCAM 2488 Mk 2 won't click


There is likely an amplitude setting (probably available in a menu) for the click. Make sure that is turned up.

144 drops out


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.

Tascam 788


Hi,

Sorry to hear about your problem. A number of things could cause this error to appear including bad sectors on the hard drive (which will require a reformat).

Two things you can check though before getting into replacing or reformatting the drive (which will erase all of your data) are 1) Make sure the power adapter hasn't failed. A bad or incompatible adapter won't provide enough power to the drive when it tries to spin up and could cause this error. You can try a replacement after-market adapter but you'll have to match the specs in the manual. 2) You can open up the 788 and inspect the two wires connecting the disk drive to the motherboard. One is power and the other will be an IDE ribbon cable. If either is loose that could be the cause of your problem.

If you do determine that the drive is bad you'll need to remove the drive, hook it up to a PC and reformat it there. Then reinstall it in the 788 which will upon bootup automatically reformat it again with Tascam's proprietary disk format. You can optionally replace the drive. I believe Tascam's site has a list of drives which are compatible with the 788. Reformatting (or replacing) the drive will obviously cause all of your data to be lost, but should get your 788 working again (if a bad format was the problem).

One thing of note if the drive format being bad turns out to be the problem is that Firmware versions 1.07 and below have a bug which can cause bad sectors to corrupt the drive after delete operations. If you have a firmware version which is 1.07 or below you should upgrade to a newer revision or you'll risk corrupting the drive again in the future. You can get the upgrade and instructions on how to apply it here: http://www.tascam.com/products/788;9,16,132,19.html

Best of luck and hopefully it's just a loose connection or a bad power adapter.

bd.

Try adjusting the input level so the meter stays close to 0 when recording. It sounds like the levels are too hot.

Problem with tascam dm 24


Firstly well done for buying an excellent quality mixer. I take it you are referring to a software sequencer (if not why not) to take advantage of the DM24's firewire streaming and eliminate the need for a separate audio interface.

A choice of sequencer really depends on your application as they all have varying strengths and weaknesses, however one thing they all have in common is that the DM24 can be used as a control surface for all the major sequencers.

Cubase - easy to learn and user friendly, however the selection of virtual midi instruments and effect plugins is pretty limited and not great quality. Also it can be a bit unstable if you are using arrangements with lots of recorded audio parts. Its more at home with MIDI applications where you either have your own outboard synths or you have purchased a good set of softsynths.

Logic (Mac only) - Not quite as intuitive to use, however the selection of virtual instruments and FX bundled with the package are excellent quality. Also is a lot more stable for audio applications since it has been programmed to make more economical use of your system resources. This is a good choice if you are multitracking bands and have a lot of audio parts to deal with.

Sonar - this is basically the PC equivalent of Logic though there are a few differences.

Pro Tools- the biggie, and also the most expensive! This is a good all rounder, not had a huge amount of experience with it myself but pretty much every pro studio in the world uses tools and the built in plug ins are second to none.

Note all these have LE (learning edition) versions as well as the full versions, where the LE's are slightly stripped down versions of the full. Look at what your requirements are and make a decision based on whether you are likely to use the advanced functions of the full versions.

Finally if you have the budget, have a look at Reason. This is a virtual synth rack and can be used either stand alone or plugged into your main sequencer. Loads of excellent drums sounds, one great synth, one OK synth, the rex player which is excellent, and a good sampler. If you can justify the cost its well worth having.
