Question about Tascam 2488 Portastudio Multitrack Recorder System
Does anyone know the advantage of upgrading from 1.01 to 1.02. My operating system seems to be stable, but am I missing any upgrades to FX, operations, etc......? Where can I get the factory demo song for messing around. Is it in the upgrade?
The firmware upgrade does not contain the demo song.
Although Tascam has never released any official information that I'm aware of on what is fixed in the 1.01 and 1.02 upgrades, the general knowledge on that is as follows:
1.01 fixed a problem with exporting previously edited tracks to wav files in which there would be gaps in the tracks where edits had been done. There was a work around for this which involved first bouncing the edited track and then exporting the bounced track instead of the one had the first generation edits.
1.02 is said to have addressed some issues with fader dropout (faders would jump around at the bottom of their range rather than operate smoothly). Also a problem with the midi clock which caused some issues when trying to do a midi sync or to slave a device have been reported. I've also heard that some users contend that copying songs is faster with 1.02 than it was using 1.01.
I'm not aware of any other fixes or ehnacements. The 1.01 fixes were documented and were supposed to affect all units.
I've have heard that the fader problems fixed by version 1.02 were 'real' and one would notice the difference after upgrading. I've never used any firmware other than 1.02 with mine so I have not encountered these reported problems first hand.
