2488 upgrade 1.01 to 1.02(most current version)

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?

Hi,

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.

Cheers,

bd

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.

Is there a way to upgrade the tone generator sounds drums, synths, etc?


No. Unfortunately you are stuck with the drum kits and standard midi that come with the 2488. I find the tone generator sounds to be pretty good on the 2488 quality-wise at least. Of course having the versatility of swapping in other kits and tones/samples would be nice. I believe Tascam discontinued the tone generator/drum machine on subsequent models of 2488 because it seems that the demand wasn't there.

Drum track


From your description it sounds like you recorded the midi drum patterns to a track first and then playback from that track is giving you problems. If this is the case it sounds a lot like a bug that existed in the firmware prior to release 1.02 where edits could cause gaps on tracks. You can check your firmware version on bootup and if you don't have version 1.02 installed you can get the firware and instrustion on how to upgrade it here:
