Can the write speed of the internal cd burner be changed on the tascam 2488 mk ii to produce a more accurate audio cd . if not how is the write speed determined .thanks Andy


The actual disc speed in the unit has nothing to do with the speed that a CD plays back.

Read page 68 of your user manual for variable speed and pitch setup and changing.

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.

Vocal effects on Tascam 2488 MK 2 portable studio


Hi again,

The easiest way to record using an external Lexicon effects unit (without an external mixer) is to connect your mic onto one of the 2488's inputs and assign that input to a channel strip (track). You should have the 2488 sends (output) going to the Lexicon's inputs. Then connect the Lexicon outputs back into another set of inputs on your 2488 and assign those inputs to two empty channel strips (tracks).

Then you will have to take that channel that has your mic input assigned to it and press send and set the levels there to send the signal out the sends (to the Lexicon).
Now you have a channel strip assigned to the mic input which contains your dry signal, and you have the two inputs returning from the Lexicon which contains your wet or effected signal.
You then have some options. You can control the amount of effected signal you hear while recording by adjusting the faders of the two wet tracks and you can either record the dry signal or the wet signal (or both) onto separate tracks.

Typically when recording the singer will want to hear an effect (say reverb) on his voice, but the engineer wants to record only the dry track at recording time (because effects can always be added later, but they can't be taken out). To accomplish this you would use the setup above, but only arm the mic input track for recording. In this way the singer hears the reverb, but only the dry vocals get recorded and the engineer can add reverb to that track again later as desired (and mix it back with the dry vocal etc).

On the other hand if you want to record only the effected signal you would simply arm the two channels to which the inputs coming back from your Lexicon are assigned for recording. This will get you a recording of the effected signal only.
Hope this helps you do what you are trying to do.

Cheers.

How do I connect effects rack (Lexicon) to Tascam 2488 MK 2?


I've got a Lexicon too and I love the thing.

To use the Lexicon as a 'send effect' (which is what it is) you'll need to connect the effect sends from the back of the 2488 to the inputs on your Lexicon. Then connect the outputs from the Lexicon into two inputs on the 2488. Then assign those inputs to tracks.

You've got to select the previously recorded track(s) where you want to add reverb or other effects (by pressing the select key) and then press the 'send' key to get into the 'send effect' screen. Here you can adjust the amount of signal is sent from that channel to either of the effect sends (typically you might want to send one track of a stereo set of tracks out eff 1 and send the other track out eff 2).

Pre, post or off will determine whether the fader affects the signal being sent or not and the loop setting on the top of this screen is for the internal effects.

Once you've got this set up the way you want you just arm the tracks where the Lexicon output is coming into the 2488 for recording, mute whatever you don't want to hear and you can bounce record the raw signal through the Lexicon and record (print) the effected signal on the tracks you've armed.

Hope this helps.

Using the effects on the 2488 mk 11 for vocals


Use a single effect vice a multi effect and assign it to the channel vice the input and that should get you going. I'm sure you could just set the effect to the input and not the channel but this works for me. If your tracking your instruments/tracks to different channels, and you should be, then assigining the effect to the channel wont hurt you.

Don't know how to Pre-Master or Burn to CD, please help me!


Don Q -

This answer assumes you have the 2488 mkI and not the newer mkII because the process may differ slightly on the mkII.

To premaster you first have to set an out point for the end of your pre-master (the start point is always zero). Go to the 'Audio CD' menu item and choose 'pre-master' under that. You'll see the word 'mastering' appear in the top left of the screen to let you know you've entered mastering mode. Make sure you have the tracks unmuted that you want to mix into the pre-master and have all of your eq, panning, etc set the way you want. Then hit record and play. The pre-master records to a stereo pair of dedicated internal tracks. You can redo the premaster as many times as you like which will overwrite those internal premaster tracks. You can clone the premastered tracks to a stereo pair of tracks, export them as waves or burn them to a CDR.


fnawesomewes - You have to press record and play to record your premaster.
