Question about Tascam US-144 Sound Card

1 Answer

US-144 noise Hi, i bought a new Tascam US-144 few months ago and it has a strange noise on the background. It started on the INPUR R when I plugged in my acustic guitar, but now I can hear it all the time even if i don't have anything plugged to it. I bought it to record but I can't do it without the noice. Is there a way to solve the problem? I am running on a Dell Latitude D600. Hope you can help E.

Hi

Usually Noise comes from distortion such as Electricity (50-60Hz), Main reason audio input cables might have shielding problem. Make sure cable is connected well and shield is not destroyed. You can understand it when you unplug the input connection and use the Computer volume by playing a digital media. If distortion persists contact to TASCAM @+1-323-727-7617

Good Luck

I get no response from my Tascam US-144 and windows 7.


Go to program,look for tascam folder and adjust channel 1&2 to analog.This should make your music program work fine.And then do research on both analog and digital recording.

Im getting static in the background


Try muting all input sources that you do not need: line-in, mic, etc.

You can also try the card in a different slot. Some slots are closer to devices in the case that can cause noise.

Tascam us-144 no sound with Windows Vista


Often, you just need to ensure that your computer's native driver is disabled, this is a common problem with audio interfaces and windows. Once this is done, make sure that your Tascam is set as both the input as well as the output device for all audio-based programs. If this doesn't work, get an M-Audio . . .
Hope this helps!

144 drops out


To see if it's your hardware, up your latency settings to "highest" via the tascam control panel. Also, be sure you are familiar with the various ways to up latency in your recording package: in cubase it's under device settings, vst bay. If this works, you know it's some setting somewhere. Try disabling your internet connections and setting pc performance to "background services" Also, read a pc optimization guide for daws - they are everywhere. Tascam will email one to you if you ask.

Lastly - try the asio4all driver. This fixed my pops, but when I understood all the various latency settings and set the tascam to highest latency, I could use the tascam driver. Highest latency on my p4 3.0 2gb ram pc means 12ms input and my output is 61ms.

If the asio4all driver works - it's a likely latency issue.

Us-144 working only on high latency!


Even my q6600 clocked at 3.6 Ghz gives me 12ms latency. It turns out the tascam highest latency is 12ms also on my p3 3.0 ghz pc. I haven't tried the tascam on my q6600 - I use an Emu 1820m on that. But try testing the tascam on a really fast computer. It's probably your dell's middling motherboard that's the slow down as well as all the extra stuff installed on dell's and especially notebooks that are robbing the usb bus of it's bandwidth. In most cases with the tascam, it's the pc or a low latency setting. If you want a great card for serious work: The EMU 1616m pcmcia card is a great card! Even SoundonSound loves them. Emu just makes great soundcards that rival any card out there for the best prices. Emu also gives the most control via it's excellent PatchMix software, but Patchmix does require an average IQ and about 10 minutes of reading.

Hi,

Can you tell me how you have the 144 connected to your speakers, and your computer? Besides that, one quick fix might be to turn the MON MIX in the upper left corner, all the way to the right.

If that doesn't help, please post your ins and outs.

Tascam us 144 sync problems with cubase le


Hey lea,

i have a similar setup (Cubase LE & Tascam 144) and each time i start up Cubase i have to make sure there is no digital input going to the tascam. once cubase is started up but no project loaded i plug in my spdif from my DAT machine and then open my project and all is fine. does that answer part of your question?

i have a different problem though, i'm trying to record my DAT tapes which are recorded at 32khz and cubase doesn't recognize that sample rate properly. it'll record no problem, and play them back fine, but exporting always creates mismatched sample rates in the exported file. sucks big time and i have got no idea on how to fix it either.
