Question about Tascam US-144 Sound Card
After though much trial and error, I was able to get my TASCAM US-144 to finally output some sound from Cubase 4. I expected to be able to play back the standard GM banks 1-127 on a MIDI track. Unfortunately, and I think I'm correct on this. The TASCAM is an audio interface (which allows me to hear the sound from HALion One and the other VST instruments that Cubase 4 can play as well as used as a gateway for input via microphones, electric guitar, etc., but it cannot transmit the GM sounds through because its not in essence a sound card. If I should be able to hear output from the GM midi sounds via a MIDI track in Cubase 4 or if anyone with this device has been able to do it, I'd like to know how its done.
FYI, I'm using Windows Vista 32-bit Home edition running Cubase 4.1.3. Vista absolutely sucks in my mind. XP is so much better at recognizing the hardware and drivers everytime and never seems to present problems. Vista seems to find something wrong with every piece of hardware you plug in.
Any advice, tips, and yes, of course, if you get GM sounds out of this device is welcome. Thanks.
You are correct, there is no "voice generator" within the Tascam US-144. It can simply transmit the very primitive note-on note-off type data to a Sound Module or keyboard (like a Roldan SoundCanvas), and then that would generate the actual waveforms.
A SoundCanvas would suit your needs well, as you could run the midi out to this voice generator, and then run the stereo output of that back through the Tascam and into the computer for recording.
