I have a TASCAM FW-1884 interface/controller. I've not got much use of it as a controller beyond transport functions in the last year or more since I got it. Of the controller mode protocols to choose from, Native Control, Mackie Control & HUI Control. I have the Tascam set to it's 'Native Control' & Cubase 8 set to TASCAM US-428 (what I believe is the closet thing to my Tascams Native Controller protocol?), as there is no TASCAM FW-1884 listed in Cubase 8. Native Control seems to give me some basic functions, but not as much control as Mackie & HUI modes provide, though these last 2 modes have caused some weird things when I tried them, like 'bleep sounds' from a VSTi sample whenever I'm on a Midi or Instrument Track, and once a key change when I touched something on the board (thought I moved a fader or something?), so I went with less functionality of boards various buttons with using the 'Native' Tascam mode ever since, which has never given this strangeness. Maybe I just have to play around with the different modes more, and/or may have to learn how to tweak whichever mode (if possible), to work best? The 'bleeps' never happen when I'm on a selected Audio Track. I'd THINK that Steinberg would have included a TASCAM FW-1884, FW-1082 or FW-1804 mode for the Tascam FW series units, since they DO include a TASCAM US-428 mode. Or is the US-428 the same thing as the FW-1884 Native mode? And if I'm really supposed to be using either Mackie or HUI modes, why I'm I getting strangeness, like the bleeps from VSTi's while I'm on an Instrument or Midi Track?
