So I was really excited to record a full band for the first time after getting the Tascam US-2000, which came with Cubase LE 4 (with which I was already familiar), but the first time I try to use it, the recording crashes thirty to forty seconds in. It’s still recording, but the program won’t respond, nor will it after any amount of time. I can’t determine the problem. I’m using a brand new laptop with an i7 processor and 8GB ram (far beyond what is required to use the Tascam) with Windows 7 (which I am assured is compatible with both US-2000 and Cubase LE 4), and I’m only using six of the available eight inputs on the interface (1 stereo + 4 mono). The laptop runs Cubase nicely, so I suspect the Tascam is doing something wrong (although it seems to be running well also), so I guess my question is more of a hardware issue:
Has anyone else had problems with a Tascam Us-2000 or something similar with Cubase, and if so, how can I fix it (if I can fix it)?
