Question about Tascam 2488 Portastudio Multitrack Recorder System

1 Answer

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. Thoughts? How far away should speakers be from the unit? Or a computer TV/monitor?

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.

Can i use my own electric guitar stomp box to record onto a tascam 2488 neo without miking an amp?


Yes, you should be able to go direct into the recording input if your guitar has a preamp in it and the 2488 may have adequate gain to even accept the input from a passive guitar.

Recently purchased the Tascam 2488 Neo Digital/Microphone Effects


Assuming you have your mic plugged in properly and all is working well save for this one issue, do as follows: press the SELECT button on the track/channel which has the mic on it. Then press the SEND button over to the right of all the tracks. The button is right under the EQ button. After you press the SEND button, a screen opens up and you can send reverb to that channel/track...as much as you want. I hope this helps.

TRANSFERING OLD TRACKS TO THE NEW TASCAM 2488-NEO


You'll need your PC as the intermediary. You'll have to do a USB export of the tracks you want from the DP01 to your PC and then connect the 2488's USB to the PC and do a USB import of those tracks into new tracks on the 2488.

Page 40 of the DP01FX manual will explain using the USB connection and page 43 details the steps for performing a USB export.

In the 2488 NEO manual refer to pages 80 and 81 for using the USB connection and importing the tracks.

Hope this helps. Best of luck.

I want to sing over disk soundtrack.I have tascam neo.Please tell me how to do that,Thank you


The best way to accomplish this would involve ripping the sountrack from disk first using your PC to create a wav file and then importing the resulting stereo wav file into a pair of tracks on the 2488 NEO.

The process for ripping would depend on whatever software you use to rip from the CD (lots of free ones available out there) and the process to import a stereo wave into the 2488 NEO would be detailed in your 2488 manual on pages 81 and 81.

Hope this helps.

Neo drums ?


No the neo does not have the built-in drum patterns/drum machine like the origial grey 2488 did. It was abandoned for the 2488 MkII which was the intermediate model and hasn't reappeared. I create drum patterns either using an external machine recorded in real time to a track on the my 2488 or create a drum pattern on the PC which I save as a mono wav and import to a track on the 2488.

Tascam 2488 Portastudio screen.


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.
