Question about Tascam 2488mkii 24 Track Recording Workstation

1 Answer

I recorded drums to the internal click track/metronome and drums are in time with metronome when i play it back with the click from the start of the song. BUT, if i stop in the middle of the song and rewind it a bit, the click is off and not in sync with the drums. Why is this?

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

I have a RMP-5 Rhythm Coach. I cannot get any sound from the pad when I practice. Help


Hi, after doing a bit of googling it occurs to me that the internal speaker is ONLY for the metronome / click & not for the drum sounds themselves. You will need headphones or some external audio gear like your hi-fi system or oth r amp & speaker. I found this "The pad has 54 sounds in it (covering all parts of the drum kit but mostly snares), which are triggered when you hit the mesh head, but these can only be heard over headphones. The built in speaker is only used by the metronome sound (when there are no headphones attached) and then it only has a beep sound attached to it. However, plug in headphones and you get a variety of available click sounds including a proper ticking clockwork metronome." Hope that helps a little? Good Luck :-)

When i play the keyboard and record it. it does not playback what i just performed when i record drums it plays back fine only the keyboard. im using the mpk49


I'm not familiar with Reason 5, but many midi track recorders need each instrument assigned to different midi chanels to be heard back. Check the manual in how to assign the midi tracks. Also, the playback has to be through a unit that is multi timbrel capable. Good luck!

The Simmons SD5K keeps spontaneously playing songs, even when all I want to do is play my own stuff with the metronome! I turn on the metronome, set the speed, hit the pads a few times, and the music...


Press the "click" button and then set the tempo you want, press the "click" button again this will stop the metronimoe but is also sets the tempo in memory. The next time you press the "click" button it will be ready to go.

Anytime you press the tempo + or - it thinks you are trying to use the "Tap Tempo Function".

There is a delay with the sound I play it but the green light is,nt in sync the same time I play its a little bit delayed.


The green light is NOT a tempo light and will not be in sync with applied audio. If you need a tempo indicator, turn on a click track in your computer or use a metronome.

I have recorded 4 tracks and a rytham arrangement but when i try to convert to MP3 i get no drums?? Any ideas


For the drums to take effect you have to master the track before converting. The manual explains how to do this. Push "exit" and "utility" at the same time twice, then "play" and "record" (to start the recording of course).

Seperate tracks


They have to be recorded on SEPERATE tracks if you want to keep them seperate. It will be hard to do this live as if you mic acoustics you will still get some cross feed in the mics from the different percussions.

With an electronic drum set it may be even harder as they often only have a single mixed output.

The way the professionals would do this is to play the kick and record it on a track... and then play that track back and record the snare and hat each seperately on other tracks.

Once you have synced tracks of the parts, then you can mix anyway you want.

With electronic drums you COULD have two seperate modules to give you two seperate outputs, but that is a budget breaker.

The click track on my TASCAM 2488 Mk 2 won't click


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

Problems setting midi channels using KN3000 and Cubase


If you are sequencing midi tracks you can imbed the patch change in the track and the midi channel assignment and when the sequence plays the info will be sent to the keyboard. Do you have it set to receive Omni?
