Firstly well done for buying an excellent quality mixer. I take it you are referring to a software sequencer (if not why not) to take advantage of the DM24's firewire streaming and eliminate the need for a separate audio interface.

A choice of sequencer really depends on your application as they all have varying strengths and weaknesses, however one thing they all have in common is that the DM24 can be used as a control surface for all the major sequencers.

Cubase - easy to learn and user friendly, however the selection of virtual midi instruments and effect plugins is pretty limited and not great quality. Also it can be a bit unstable if you are using arrangements with lots of recorded audio parts. Its more at home with MIDI applications where you either have your own outboard synths or you have purchased a good set of softsynths.

Logic (Mac only) - Not quite as intuitive to use, however the selection of virtual instruments and FX bundled with the package are excellent quality. Also is a lot more stable for audio applications since it has been programmed to make more economical use of your system resources. This is a good choice if you are multitracking bands and have a lot of audio parts to deal with.

Sonar - this is basically the PC equivalent of Logic though there are a few differences.

Pro Tools- the biggie, and also the most expensive! This is a good all rounder, not had a huge amount of experience with it myself but pretty much every pro studio in the world uses tools and the built in plug ins are second to none.

Note all these have LE (learning edition) versions as well as the full versions, where the LE's are slightly stripped down versions of the full. Look at what your requirements are and make a decision based on whether you are likely to use the advanced functions of the full versions.

Finally if you have the budget, have a look at Reason. This is a virtual synth rack and can be used either stand alone or plugged into your main sequencer. Loads of excellent drums sounds, one great synth, one OK synth, the rex player which is excellent, and a good sampler. If you can justify the cost its well worth having.

This mixer is plagued by bad caps in the powersupply. Open the desk. Find the powersupply and change the caps... (big black round capacitors. If the silver heads are a bit round they are failing. They should be dead on flat.

I have mixer tascam tm-d4000 stopped working now shows on the screen "fatal error" what I have to do

I'd suggest flashing the onboard CMOS and check for updates. A fatal error is usually caused by corrupted programming on these units. If you're not comfortable flashing the CMOS I'd suggest taking this unit to a service and repair professional.

Flashing the CMOS is relatively easy. Take off the bottom cover and you'll see a ton of wires and a control board and the back end to the main computer unit. Open the secondary case up and look for a watch battery on board. Pop it out and let the unit sit for awhile (10 minutes to an hour). This is usually a good time to buy a replacement battery. Once you've got the new battery pop it back in and it should brought the unit back to a factory reset state. Any stored programs will have to be reprogrammed but the unit should work. If you still get a fatal error it might suggest hardware failure. Some of the newer models of the Tascam series mixers (including submodels of the TS4000 series) have a hardware diagnostic that is available, while some of the simpler units just give you their version of a blue screen of death. Which could indicate anything from a lose connection and an error reading a subcontrol, to a blown capacitor, blown fuse, short circuit. If it's still under warranty I'd speak to the manufacturer about getting it repaired. They might also offer more sufficient troubleshooting over the phone for your issue.

I do believe there is a factory reset button code you can also try for this unit, but in my experience this doesn't really clear the memory and reset the unit properly. It's like a warm reset instead of a proper reset.

Tascam DM-24 Digital Mixer Problem

I purchased a used Tascam DM-24 mixer about 2 years ago, and it 's been running great. Just about 2 months, it frequently shut itself off with a message:
" Power Supply voltage (+5V) is too low for stable operation. Please restart DM-24".
Of course, many attempts of restarting the board, but it won't turn back on after several hours later, and only lasts about half a day work only. Very frustrating. Any idea I could get help or fixed? million thanks for suggestions. Brian
