How on earth can anybody help you if you give so little information.
* Do you have active speakers (built-in amplifier) or is there an
amplifier in between the sound card and the speakser ? If so, which
input are you using ? How are things connected ?
* Using ALSA/Jack/Pulse ??
* TASCAM is a brand name. They are hundreds if not thousands of
different things with that name on it. So what is 'a TASCAM',
and what did you install for playing around ?
Apart from that, hiss is usually the result of either
- something broken,
- or using the wrong inputs,
- or a volume control set too high.
Another cause could be the mic inputs of your sound card
routed to the outputs. Check the mixer.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
