20 Most Recent Tascam 2488mkii 24 Track Recording Workstation Questions & Answers


There is likely an amplitude setting (probably available in a menu) for the click. Make sure that is turned up.

I'd say the click track starts from exactly when you hit play even if you've hit play not right on the beat. There might be a setting or preference that can fix this.

Try rewinding back to be right on the beat and see if it syncs with the click

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.

It sounds like the hard drive has failed... cheap test, get another and reformat the new one. They are so inexpensive now. To avoid losing data, they lock things up if anything goes wrong. The unit probably can't get the ready signal from the drive and freezes...

The button will either be a switch type with a small switch actuated by the button or a conductive rubber pill that is pressed against circuit traces on the board. The latter you can clean with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q tips. The switch type you probably have to replace the switch as the internal contacts have likely worn. Often these switches are very small and take a lot of force given the size of buttons that actuate them. Unsoldering from the board takes care to NOT damage the circuit board and the pads. Make sure the new switch is held tightly to the board before soldering in place.

I think if you had the manual you would know the answer.

http://music.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/tascam/2488neo.html Page 118... Press NO/EXIT and check the digital audio source. The output should be 44.1 kHz (note that some players output 48 kHz). A unit with varispeed (pitch control) may have varispeed turned on, altering the sampling frequency from 44.1 kHz.

You can run to mic connectors but will probably have to turn down the trims. DO NOT run the drum machine at too low a volume as the signal to noise ratio will suffer. Best to attenuate at the mixer.
ALL interconnected equipment should be powered from the same source or receptacle to avoid ground loops.

You can download a manual from the tascam site for this model. as long as you pre-named your songs, they should show in the menu without mastering. You cannot burn any songs without mastering your songs first, however. They will not appear in the create cd section for this very reason.
Record, master,burn.

The button switch has likely failed and will need replacing.

Yes, you should be able to go direct into the recording input if your guitar has a preamp in it and the 2488 may have adequate gain to even accept the input from a passive guitar.

It sounds like you have either a hard drive failure or have lost the internal operating system in your unit.

BE VERY careful if you have critical data as it still might be recoverable.

I would contact the factory on this one.

Here is a link for you to look at:http://www.tascam.com/products/2488mkii.html Look under resources to download the manual or a Beginners Guide to Recording.

Here is a link to the manual:http://www.tascam.com/products/2488mkii;9,16,109,19.html Go down to Resources, Documents. As far as I know you have to map your input to a track. If you want Stereo you have to use 2 tracks. The owners manual explains it better than I can here.

It's tough. For all that TASCAM touts this is not a user friendly system. I find that assigning compression to one track, removes my reverb from every track. It seems only one effect can be used at a time, and that effect effects them all. Tascam sucks. Never again!
