Question about Tascam 2488 Portastudio Multitrack Recorder System

1 Answer

USB Export!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!AAAAHHHH I agree with the guy hear that said the 2488 manual is crazy. They seem ta leave a lot out. SO, what i don't understand is what exactly you can export. Can I only export virtual tracks, I saw the dudes post that said you can hit INPUT and export multiple virt tracks, but can I export multiple physical tracks. Or any at all? I want to send 2-4 songs w/ guitar, bass, voc, drums, to a laptop or pc. Seems like it should be possable, and easy. Can anybody help?

Export time on TASCAM 2488 is really long, exporting over 7000MB to FAT, takes 2 hours?


I've never transferred a file that large myself yet, but some song files I have transferred do take upwards of an hour and I agree, that's a long time. To not notice so much, what I've come to do is first, take a well deserved break, or even work on the computer end of things ie: song organizations, really anything I can use that 'down time' for which will help make me more productive and/or organized. as the 2488 needs lots of organizational skills going on in one's head. Or, as I suggested at the outset- just take a break from it all as recording does tend to get long in the tooth after a while. Maybe even read the manual- as boring as THAT is, it has certainly helped me...some..seriously!

I want to sing over disk soundtrack.I have tascam neo.Please tell me how to do that,Thank you


The best way to accomplish this would involve ripping the sountrack from disk first using your PC to create a wav file and then importing the resulting stereo wav file into a pair of tracks on the 2488 NEO.

The process for ripping would depend on whatever software you use to rip from the CD (lots of free ones available out there) and the process to import a stereo wave into the 2488 NEO would be detailed in your 2488 manual on pages 81 and 81.

Hope this helps.

Supposedly timing belt broke


I can't understand why one would install a used motor in the first place? Also It does however sound like the guy really doesn't want to do the work and won't do it correctly.  I think you'll end up paying a lot for unsatisfactory repair.  You may end up putting more money in the repair than the car is worth.  Good luck

I'm not sure I understand completely the problem you are having with your Aspire. However, it seems you are having problems with keyboard, touchpad etc.

One thing I realized a few months ago, mine started going crazy. I searched the web all over and found that REMOVING the battery completely solved the problems with the keyboard and touchpad problems.

I have to use mine without the battery in. Only plugged in.

Try removing the battery, leaving it out, plugging in the power supply and see if that does not fix the craziness of the touchpad and keyboard.

Good luck!

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.
