Re: tracks 13/14 etc...
As far as I'm aware there is no way to record to just one of the stereo paired tracks (channels) on the 2488. There are individual mono tracks underneath those channels, but they are controlled with one fader and can only be recorded to in stereo. They are designed to be used for recording stereo sources and stereo bounces. You can however record to any of tracks 1 to 12 and then move (assign) that track to say track (channel) 13 or you can clone any single track to any other track (channel).
The term track can be misleading on the 2488. It might be easier to refer to the 1-24 fader controlled 'tracks' on the 2488 as 'channel strips' and refer to each of the 250 virtual 'tracks' on the 2488 as 'tracks'. You can assign any of the 250 virtual tracks on the 2488 to any of the channel strips. So you have 250 tracks available, but can only work with 24 of them at a time. The stereo pairs just offer some extra convenience when working in stereo. They allow you to control the volume of two tracks with one fader making working with stereo easier.
Channels 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 4 and 6, ...11 and 12 can also be linked as stereo pairs and will be controlled with the fader of the odd numbered (first) track when linked.

Yes you certainly can record the 8 inputs onto 8 tracks simultaneously. You will need to make sure you are assigning each input to each track individually by first pressing the input button for an input and then pressing the select button for a track. Do this for each input/track and then make sure all of the 8 tracks you want to record to are armed for recording (the red rec buttons above each should be lit) before pressing record and play together.
You might want to insure that no tracks are linked (you can see this by pressing an input and observing which tracks have their 'select' button flashing). If 2 adjacent ones are flashing for the same input simply unassign one of them by pressing the 'select' button above that track. Then you'll be free to assign the next input to that track as above.
I'm assuming you are plugging the left and right outputs from the karaoke machine into input A and B of the Tascam to record the stereo output of the Karioke. The Tascam works with mono only (you recreate the stereo mix at mixdown or when bouncing mono tracks together with the panning set). Therefore you should be assigning inputs A and B separately. You could press assign A and then the record button above track 1 and then press assign B and the record button above track 2. Then arm tracks 1 and 2 (by pressing record above each). When you then press play and record together you'll record input A onto track 1 and input B onto track 2.
Yes. You can record the midi output to a track using bounce mode.
With you midi (or smf) file loaded into the midi tone generator,
press shift-bounce to enter bounce mode. Then arm a track for recording. Turn the fader up for that track, the master fader and the fader for the midi tone generator. Make sure than all other track faders are down or the tracks are muted (or empty) and press play and record. The midi song will be recorded to the track in real time. Just press 'stop' when done and exit bounce mode (by pressing the bounce button again).
It sounds like either the inputs are not assigned or the tracks are not armed for recording (or both).
Here is a quick explanation of the procedure involved in recording with the DP-02 that I posted for another person who was asking for some basic instruction on how to record. You might be missing a step somewhere along the line as for instance you will still see the meters move even if you don't have the inputs assigned or don't have any tracks armed, but the DP-02 won't record anything until you do both.
To record you need to first assign your input to a track, then arm the track for recording, and then press play + record at the same time.
1. So you would patch your mixer output, mic or instrument into an input on your DP01 (say input A). You can run some audio to set the level with the input level knob (located next to input A on the front panel).
2. Then to assign that input to a track simply press and hold the 'input A' button and then press the 'rec' button of the track you with to record on. The 'rec' button will flash rapidly to indicate that the input is assigned to the track.
(To assign the input to a different track you have to clear the input assignment from the first track and assign the input to a new track. To clear an assignment press the input assign key, A in this case, and the track it's assigned to will flash its 'rec' button. Hold down the input assign key and then press the flashing 'rec' button. The button will stop flashing and the input can then be assigned to another track by following step 2 again).
3. Next, to arm the track for recording simply press the 'rec' button for that track. The 'rec' button with flash slowly.
4. To begin recording press play + record together in the transport section and the 'rec' light for the armed track will stop flashing and light steadily. Press 'stop' to end recording.
This should get you started. The operation of the DP02 is actually pretty intuitive once you've gone through it a couple of times (which is one of the real strengths of the unit). You'll be multitracking like an expert in no time.
You are not recording the effect to track, it is probable that you are perhaps using the effect loop, it will not be recorded to track this way. This how you should really record anyways so that you can go back and change the effect or even just fine tune it in the mix, you can then bounce the track later with effect if you want later. If you want the effect to go to track then
1. Press and hold the MULTI button, then press
the SELECT button on the channel you want to
2. Press MULTI again to view the effect parameters.
Press the ENTER button to choose an effect
that you want, tweak it for what you want, and it should then go to track
Try that and see how you go. I am happy to talk to you more about it. A FixYa is a good reward for my efforts to help you out. Cheers mate
You've got two inputs on the DP-02 so you can record two sources at once.
Depending on how you want the electric guitar recorded (mic the amp, or direct line in) you can in the first case plug your guitar mic into one of the mic inputs on DP02 and plug your vocal mic into the other mic input. You also have the option of plugging the guitar directly into the DP02 (using the hi-z input - I believe it is labelled 'guitar' or something on the DP02. I any event I believe it's the one on the left). This way you only need one mic for use recording the vocal part.
To avoid any 'bleed' between channels you can use the headphones while recording this way and you'll avoid having the unamplified guitar sound coming through over the vocal mic.
Once you have the mics or guitar and mic plugged into two inputs, you need to assign the inputs to a channel (track) to record on. You do this by pressing the select button for the input and then pressing the select button for the track where you want to record the input. Do this for both inputs so that they are recording on different tracks. Then arm the tracks for recording by pressing the record button for each track and the lighted buttons will flash above each armed track. Then just press play and record and you'll be recording. You can go back and redo it as many times as you like and record over what is there, or preserve a take and assign a new track (or tracks) for another take. You've got 8 to play with.
Yes. Rather than pressing the track SELECT button to assign the effect, press one of the SOURCE buttons to the left of the EFFECTS. This will record the effect HARD to the track as oopposed to SOFT. SOFT being that the effect will NOT be recorded whereas HARD means it IS recorded and will be there anytime you play the track. NOTE: Just make sure that's the effect you want as it is then part of the track.
You need to first plug a mic (or guitar) into an input. Then you have to assign that input (A or B) to a track. You do this by selecting the input (pressing the input's assign button) and then selecting the track (pushing the tracks select/rec button) above the track. The track select button will light green when you press the input assign button of the input assigned to it to show where the input is assigned. (To unassign the input simply press the lit track select button again while the input assign button is pressed).
Then you have to select the track for recording. Simply press the rec button above the track alone and it will light red and stay lit. Now press the play and record buttons and you'll be recording.
To record the eight inputs onto 8 separate tracks at once simply plug your mics or other audio sources into the mic inputs (only 4 can be powered, A-E) and then assign each input to a separate track by pressing the input button which corresponds to one input and then the select button for the desired target track at the same time. Do this for all eight inputs and their target tracks. Then arm all eight tracks to record by pressing the record buttons on each (the red lights will come on). Then when you press play and record in the transport section (or use punch operations) you will record all eight inputs to all eight tracks at the same time.
