SOURCE: having trouble transfering my wav files from

I had the same problem too but I figured it out. First you have to make sure your wav file is converted to (MONO) as opposed to Stereo, (which is the default channel setting). The best thing to do is to download a converter program, in my case I downloaded AVS Converter program which all I did was upload the wav file switch it to Mono 1.0 and that was that!! The Cons: for this program it costs money to download for your own keeping. I also suggest Audacity program my computer wont let me download it but a co-worker of mine has it and he said it's free to download.

TRANSFERING OLD TRACKS TO THE NEW TASCAM 2488-NEO


You'll need your PC as the intermediary. You'll have to do a USB export of the tracks you want from the DP01 to your PC and then connect the 2488's USB to the PC and do a USB import of those tracks into new tracks on the 2488.

Page 40 of the DP01FX manual will explain using the USB connection and page 43 details the steps for performing a USB export.

In the 2488 NEO manual refer to pages 80 and 81 for using the USB connection and importing the tracks.

Hope this helps. Best of luck.

Tascam stopped while I was recording and NO FREE DISC came on the screen


It sounds like your hardrive or other media storage on you multitracker is full. You must have done alot of recording. Go to your manual and read about how to transfer your work to your computer. It should be USB transfer. Or burn your files to disc if your unit has a burner. If you beileve this message is an error message of some kind and your multitracker is still under warranty, call tascam immediately. I had a problem with a unit like yours and it took a long time and calling them til they actually sent me a new one. Good Luck

Transferring songs onto new CF card


You'll have to create backups of your songs and transfer those backups using USB to your PC. Then with the 8 GB card inserted you can reimport them to the Tascam (USB) and restore them to the current working song which will then get saved on your 8 GB card. Do this for each song and then you can discard (delete) those backed up song files while connected to the PC.

Hope this helps.

I can't import midi files


There shouldn't be any compatibility problems, especially since you can transfer files one way already. You might want to make sure any wav files you are trying to import to tracks on the 2488 are saved as 'mono' waves rather than 'stereo'. The 2488 won't import a stereo wav file.

Another problem sould be naming. Try to stick to the old dos 8.3 naming standard (xxxxxxxx.xxx) for any files which you wish to import.

Hope this helps.

Tascam 788


The 788 can be used to play music from a SCSI attached CD-RW drive, but the record (and all other mixing functions) are disabled so you are not able to record the CD output onto a track using the SCSI attached drive.

Your options are:

1.) Rip tracks files from the CD onto you PC as wav files. You'll have rip (or later convert) those files to mono 16 or 24 bit wav files at 44.1kHz, use the old dos 8.3 naming convention for the filenames, and them burn them onto a CD-R or CD-RW as data files which can then be taken and imported into the 788.

2.) Play the CD through with an external CD player or stereo and route the output into an input on the 788. Assign the input to a track and record. Be careful to use a line level output, like an aux out (or try the CD player's outputs directly into the 788) if you are using a stereo. Avoid using a speaker output as the signal from a speaker output will be too strong and can damage the 788.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.

Tascam pocketstudio5


Hello tasbones and razzledog !I expect the following will help you solving the problems with the pattern file of pocketstudio5 (TASCAM):You need the original CD-ROM which includes the pattern file with many different drums and sound stuff. You have to put these data on a formatted cf-card (everytime again if you will use a new card) !This info comes from a german musician who had the same problem 5 years ago.Try the following Link of TASCAM where you can download the manual, an update and the PATTERN FILE !www.tascam.de   --> "Support" --> "download" --> "nicht mehr hergestellte Produkte" --> "pocketstudio5"If this will not work, give me a sign - I will try to send the data to you via mail.freewood/Berlin, Germany
