Re: Tascam US-144 MKII Digital Out Produces No Test Tones

Hi

I've just get Tascam 144mkii myself intended to use with REW / still not sure if that have been money good spend/ but have a chance and necessity to play with drivers, so please check if You have latest firmware as mine Tascam came with rather old firmware installed and that caused problems with latest win7 drivers.

I have the 2.03 firmware and the 2.05 device drivers installed. This product is so unreliable that I have reverted to using my motherboard's sound card.

I fear the US-144 MkII is essentially useless for REW.

Hi

It sounds rather "not good" as I just have bought it for using with REW, have read that it have been confirmed working.

Re: Tascam US-144 MKII Digital Out Produces No Test Tones

Not good is an understatement.

I am completely frustrated with the unreliable performance of the TASCAM US-144 Mk II in the Windows 7 x64 environment.

The worst thing about this product is TASCAM's complete lack of technical support.

They simply fail to answer technical support queries.

If you are thinking about purchasing a TASCAM US-144 Mk II, please don't do it.

I have contacted Tascam and pointed out your experience. I will report whether we get any reponse.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

I received the response below from Tascam. I suggest you try to contact them again for assistance and let us know the details, as well as whether you get a solution. I just used the contact form on their web site support page.

From Tascam:
Leonard,
Without more specific information regarding how he's using the product, it would be impossible to come up with a possible solution.

If this is a TASCAM product he purchased and is using in the U.S. or Canada, We would suggest he send a detailed email (to the same address you just did) and we would be happy to look into it.

Thank you for your interest in TASCAM products.

Thanks for the help Leonard.

I have an outstanding support ticket with the TASCAM website and have yet to receive ANY reply.

PS what TASCAM e-mail address did you use?

Re: Tascam US-144 MKII Digital Out Produces No Test Tones

Hi

Any news on problems with Your Tascam US144MKii and SPIDF OUT..???
I'm playing with mine Tascam and it is not easy to get digital path working, so any info would be great.
Actually Is it possible to do SPIDF OUT to SPIDF IN loop-back measurement at that card ?? still can't do that.
Well and THD of my Tascam seems to be 0,07% instead advertised 0,005% there is crazy amount of distortion in that thing. My old EMU 202 just destroys (!) Tascam US144MKii in that regard...
Tascam have really nice build quality and fell but sound wise is just "farrr...." from anything decent at 2015.

Finally received a reply from TASCAM -- they said the unit must be broken. They suggested I return it to depot for repairs. This is the last TASCAM product for me...
