1 – MIDI Control/Program Change messages
The following are the MIDI Control Change messages accepted by the 2488 to control different settings. When used with an external sequencer, this
provides a certain degree of automation for mixing,
etc.
Mixer Control Change parameters
The Bank Select controller is used with channel 15 to
choose which group of eight channels or inputs are
affected. It is therefore necessary to send a MIDI
message of BE 00 xx (where xx selects the group of
eight channels or inputs) before sending the Control
Change messages on the appropriate MIDI channel.
Bank 0: Mixer channels 1 though 8
Bank 1: Mixer channels 9 through 16
Bank 2: Mixer channels 17 through 24
Bank 3: Inputs A through H
Once the group has been selected, use MIDI channels
1 through 8 to control the mixer channels or inputs
(or MIDI channel 13 for the tone generator, or MIDI
channel 16 for the stereo master or send master).

1 – MIDI Control/Program Change messages
Effect parameter change MIDI messages
Use the following MIDI channels to send messages
to the 2488 effects (see the User’s Guide for further
details about the types of effect available on the
2488):
Channels 1 through 8 are used for mic effects. The
Bank Select controller is used with channel 14 to
choose which group of eight channels or inputs is
affected.
Bank 0: Mixer channels 1 though 8
Bank 1: Mixer channels 9 through 16
Bank 2: Mixer channels 17 through 24
Bank 3: Inputs A through H
Channel 9 is used to control the stereo dynamics processor effect.
Channel 10 is used to control the single effect.
Channel 11 is used to control the multi-effect.
The way in which the effects are controlled is by the
use of NRPN (non-Registered Parameters).
Controller 98 is used for the LSB of each NRPN, and
controller 99 for the MSB.
In effect settings where more than one effect may be
selected, the same NRPN may produce a different
outcome, depending on the selected effect.
NOTE
All values, etc. listed in these tables are in decimal
notation.
Example effect parameter change
This example shows the MIDI bytes (in hexadecimal
notation) needed to set the ratio of a compressor
effect on mixer channel 9.

Control Changes 96 and 97 (decimal) are used for
increment and decrement as well.
B0 62 01
B0 06 00

Meaning
Sends a Control Change 0 (Bank Select)
message on channel 14 to select bank 1
Sends NPRN MSB to 2nd channel in group
(mixer channel 9) on MIDI channel 1
Sends 1 as NPRN LSB to 2nd channel in
group, which controls the ratio when
compressor is selected as mic effect
Data entry Control Change LSB on MIDI
channel 1
Data entry Control Change MSB on MIDI
channel 1
The ratio of the compressor on mixer channel 9 is
now set to a value of 0.

MIDI Program Change messages
The 2488 can accept Program Change messages to
select an effect and to change scenes.
Before a Program Change message is sent for changing an effect, a Bank Select message must be sent to
select whether an effect will be selected from the preset bank or from the user bank of memories. In each
case, bank 0 corresponds to the preset memories, and
bank 1 to the user bank.
Send the Bank Select messages (CC 0) on MIDI
channels 1 through 8 for mic effects (see below),
MIDI channel 9 for stereo dynamics, channel 10 for
the single effect, and channel 11 for the multi effect.
When selecting a mic effect, a Bank Select message
should first be sent on channel 14 to select the group
of eight channels or inputs out of which the channel
is selected:
Bank 0: Mixer channels 1 though 8
Bank 1: Mixer channels 9 through 16
Bank 2: Mixer channels 17 through 24
Bank 3: Inputs A through H
The Program Change messages that are then valid are
as follows (see the tables following for details of the
preset values—the “user” messages correspond to the
entry number in the library):
Mic effects (preset) Program Change 0 to 2
Mic effects (user) Program Change 0 to 99
(maximum)
Stereo dynamics effect (preset) Program
Change 0 to 1
Stereo dynamics effect (user) Program
Change 0 to 99 (maximum)
Single effect (preset) Program Change 0 to 34
Single effect (user) Program Change 0 to 99
(maximum)
Multi effect (preset) Program Change 0 to 41
Multi effect (user) Program Change 0 to 99
(maximum)
Scene memory Program Change messages
These are transmitted on channel 16. The Program
Change message may be from 0 to 99.

Preset Multi effects
The first 16 effects are generic effects, and the rest
are presets that you can use “as is” or as jumping-off
points for your own sounds.
The chain of all multi effects start with (1) a noise
suppressor, followed by either (2) distortion or clean
compression, then (3) an amp simulator, (4) another
effect, and finally by (5) a delay setting.
The effects in (4) are abbreviated as follows:
FLG: Flanger
PHA: Phaser
CHO: Chorus
EXC: Exciter
PIT: Pitch shifter
TRM: Tremolo
VIB: Vibrato
WAH: Wah (auto or
pedal)
Effects 2 and 4 in the chain are listed here as “main
components”.

5 – Error and status messages
The following is a list of error messages that may be
displayed by the 2488, together with a note of their
possible cause, and the actions you can take when
they occur.
No.
1
Message
Cannot do this
when not
stopped. Stop
the transport.
In the messages, keys to be pressed are enclosed in
brackets ([ENTER] or [NO]) and menu items are written
in uppercase/capital letters (DELETE UNUSED).
Meaning
Action
The hard disk is being accessed for playback
or recording, so the selected action cannot be
performed.
Press EXIT, stop the transport and retry the
operation.
Digital audio input mode has been selected,
but the 2488 cannot detect a valid digital
audio input.
Press EXIT and check the digital connection.
If the connection is good, it is possible that
the signal is the wrong type. The 2488
expects a signal in S/PDIF (IEC60958
Consumer use) format at 44.1kHz. It cannot
accept compressed audio formats, etc.
When editing tracks, you have selected the
same track as both source and destination
for a duplicate operation.
Press EXIT and select a different source or
destination track as appropriate.
When arranging patterns, an attempt has
been made to insert more than 99 patterns
into a song, or insert a pattern at a point
where a pattern cannot be inserted (inside
the source selection).
Press EXIT, and reduce the number of
patterns in the song, or select another point
to insert the pattern.
Because digital audio input is selected, the
following functions cannot take place: Tuner,
pitch and SSA functions, MTC slave
operations, jog and trim functions, audio CD
operations).
Press EXIT and turn off digital input (the
MIXER section of the PREFERENCES menu)
before proceeding with the operation that
produced this message.
An attempt has been made to erase a disc
(CD-RW) that is already blank.
Press EXIT and replace the disc if necessary.
An attempt has been made to finalize a blank
disc (CD-R or CD-RW).
Press EXIT and replace the disc if necessary.
The selected WAV or Standard MIDI File
cannot be imported into the current song as
there is not enough disk space on the current
partition.

DELETE) to free up space on the partition
(note that this cannot be undone).

TASCAM 2488 Reference Manual 21
5 – Error and status messages
No.
9
Message
Meaning
The data selected for export to the FAT
partition is too big (there is not sufficient
space on the FAT partition).
Press EXIT, use the USB OPEN function to
manage the files (move or delete unwanted
ones) on the FAT partition from a computer
and retry. Alternatively, if there is no wanted
data on the FAT partition, use the 2488 to
reformat the FAT partition (all data on the
FAT partition is irrecoverably lost). The FAT
partition size is fixed at 4 GB.
The file selected (backup file, WAV file for
import, or SMF) is not available.
Press EXIT, use the USB OPEN function to
transfer the appropriate file to the FAT
partition and then try importing again.
Digital audio input mode has been selected,
but the 2488 has detected the wrong
sampling frequency (Fs) for the incoming
digital audio to be used.
Press EXIT and check the digital audio
source. The output should be 44.1kHz (note
that some players output 48kHz). A unit with
varispeed (pitch control) may have varispeed
turned on, altering the sampling frequency
from 44.1kHz.
The master track is too short, and therefore
cannot be checked.
Press EXIT, re-set the OUT point to at least
four seconds after the zero point, then use
the PRE-MASTERING menu item for checking.
Since the unit is currently slaved to external
MIDI timecode, the selected operation
cannot take place. Operations not possible in
MTC slave mode include: pitch control and
SSA, repeat playback, auto-punch operations,
jog and trim as well as audio CD playback
and digital audio input.
Press EXIT and use the menu system
(SYNC/MIDI->SYNC) to select INTERNAL sync.
No file for import
has been found.
Change CD [YES],
else press [NO]
No WAV file for import has been discovered
on the loaded CD.
Press YES to change the disc (use an
ISO9660 formatted disc which contains audio
data with 44.1kHz sampling frequency in
WAV format) or NO to cancel the operation.
No free hard
disk space, Use
DELETE UNUSED
to make space.
The hard disk is full, and the current
operation has failed because it needs hard
disk space.
Press EXIT and use one of the SONG menu
operations such as DELETE UNUSED or ERASE
to free up some space (these operations
cannot be undone).
Can’t use the last recording point for autopunch operations, as no recording has been
done yet.
Press EXIT and set the IN and OUT points as
the punch positions. Use the RHSL key to
refine these points if necessary, by rehearsing
takes without recording.
File too big to
export. Choose
another file
for export.
Press [EXIT].
10
Action
Import file not
found. Use
USB OPEN to
import file.
Press [EXIT].
11

your system
set-up
Press [EXIT].
12

17
Message
No locate
markers have
been set. Use
INSERT MARK.
Meaning
Action
Because there are no locate markers
currently set, a location command cannot be
performed.
Press EXIT, and use the INSERT or SET
LOC key from the home screen to add some
locate markers at the appropriate positions.
There is no master track available for making
an audio CD.
Press EXIT, then use the PRE-MASTERING
menu item to create the master track.
An attempt has been made to play back the
MIDI track with the MIDI PLAYER mode set to
OFF.
Press EXIT, and use the menu system to
select either SMF or PATTERN as the MIDI
PLAYER mode, as appropriate.
Before an auto-punch operation, you must
have at least one armed track.
Press EXIT and press the REC key of at
least one track on which you will be
recording (once a track has been armed in
auto-punch, the track arming status cannot
be changed).
Digital audio input mode has been selected,
but the 2488 has detected the wrong data
format for the incoming digital audio to be
used.
Press EXIT and check the digital audio
source. The 2488 expects a signal in S/PDIF
(IEC60958 Consumer use) format at 44.1kHz.
It cannot accept compressed audio formats,
etc.
Copying a song has failed because there is
not enough space on the selected or target
partition.
Press EXIT and use one of the SONG menu
operations such as DELETE UNUSED or ERASE
to free up some space on the partition where
there is not enough space (these operations
cannot be undone).
Sometimes after repeated operations, the
internal memory of the 2488 becomes used,
and recording, etc. is not possible.
Press EXIT. Use the DELETE UNUSED menu
item from the SONG menu. As well as
deleting the unused song data, this action
will also free up memory, so recording can
continue. Remember that this operation
cannot be undone.
Too much data has been selected to fit onto
the CD that is currently loaded.
Press YES to change the CD for another
one, or NO to cancel the current operation.
Use a higher-capacity disc when burning a
master track or exporting data, or one of the
same capacity as the current disc when
backing up.
Press [EXIT].

Press [EXIT].
Protected song.
Unprotect with
SONG PROTECT.
Meaning
Action
No enough space on the hard disk to create
the image file necessary to create a CD.
Press EXIT and create space by deleting
songs, etc.,(SONG->ERASE) backing them up
if necessary (this operation cannot be
undone). You can free up space on a partition
other than the current partition (use the
DISK->SELECT function) in order to create
space for the image.
Recording, track editing, recording, titling,
etc. cannot be carried out when the current
song has been protected.
Press EXIT, and use the PROTECT menu item
from the SONG menu to remove the
protection from the song before proceeding.
Because repeat mode is selected, the
following functions cannot take place: locate
operation, track editing, undo/redo, auto
punch, quick routing, all menu operations,
and shutdown.
Press EXIT and cancel the repeat mode
(REPEAT key) before proceeding with the
operation that produced this message.
Because SSA mode is selected, the following
functions cannot take place: MTC slave
operations, jog and trim functions, recording
(including auto-punch) and digital input.
Press EXIT and cancel the SSA mode
(PITCH/SSA key) before proceeding with
the operation that produced this message.
Repeat playback or auto-punch operations
cannot be carried out because the time
between the IN and OUT locate markers is
too short.
Press EXIT, and re-enter or edit the IN and
OUT points so that the time between them is
longer, before attempting the operation
again.
More than 999 markers have been set in the
song and so a new marker cannot be
entered.
Press EXIT, and use the DELETE key from
the home screen to delete some of the
unwanted marks.
Copying a song has failed because there are
too many songs already on the selected or
target partition.
Press ENTER. Back up any songs you want
to keep, and then use the ERASE menu item
from the SONG menu to erase unwanted
songs, or songs you have backed up before
proceeding with the song copy (deleting
songs cannot be undone).
There are too many songs stored on the
current partition (the limit is 250 songs on
one partition) for a new song to be created,
or a song that has been backed up to be
restored.
Press EXIT. Back up any songs you want to
keep, and then use the ERASE menu item
from the SONG menu to erase unwanted
songs, or songs you have backed up before
proceeding with the creation or restoration
of a song (deleting songs cannot be undone).
Alternatively, use DISK -> SELECT to select
another partition.
Press [EXIT].
27
Repeat mode is

No.
33
Message
Too many takes.
Can’t continue
recording
Meaning
The repeat auto-punch procedure can’t
continue because more than 99 takes have
been recorded.
Press EXIT, stop recording, select the
desired take from the list. Press ENTER and
press AUTO PUNCH again, selecting a
mode other than LAST TAKE LOAD. Takes
recorded before this cannot be restored, so
the first selection should be made carefully!
Because at least one track is already present
on the disc, it is not possible to burn more
than one track at once. To burn several tracks
at one time (Disc At Once), you must start
with a blank disc.
Press EXIT and replace the disc if necessary.
The distance between the zero point and the
OUT point is too short for mastering. A CD
track must be at least four seconds long.
Press EXIT, and re-set the OUT point to at
least four seconds after the zero point.
The wrong type of CD for the operation has
been loaded in the drive. This could be
because :
A non-writable CD has been selected for
writing
An attempt has been made to finalize an
already finalized disc
An attempt has been made to erase a nonCD-RW disc.
A disc which is not a backup disc has been
loaded for a restore operation.
Press EXIT and replace the disc with the
correct type of disc for the operation.
Press [EXIT].
