Question about Tascam 2488 Portastudio Multitrack Recorder System
I purchased a Tascam DP 02 Digital portastudio about 1 week ago. I explained to the guy in the music store that I wished to copy CD music tracks and add a voice over, for use at a community radio station (Intros promos etc) I have read through the Manual thoroughly but can't make much sense of it. Can you recommend any book etc that will give me background on how to use this equipment. I presume that I can use the onboard CD player as the source and then using a microphone add the voice over or is this not possible. Maybe I have to connect an external Cd as an input. I realise this is probably very simple stuff for you but I would greatly appreciate any assistance you can provide.
Can't help you with any books for the DP 02, but I can try to assist you in doing what you'd like to do.
The way I would attempt to do this, and there may be other ways but this is really the cleanest in my opinion, (assuming you have access to a computer) is to first rip the CD onto your computer into a series of wav files. Then you'll want to work with one song/CD track at a time. Then you'll need to use a WAV editor (Audacity is a good free one) to convert the wav file from STEREO into MONO wav file. You can then (using the USB import function on the DP-02) import the mono WAV file into the DP-02's fat partition. From there you can load it into the DP-02 by choosing which track to load it into. You'd then be able to play this track while recording your voice overdubs onto another track.
You'd then mix your song and you could burn onto a cd right from the DP-02 (or do as I do and export the mix as two mono wav files back onto your PC and, then convert them back to stereo and when you have all the songs you want for the CD burn a new CD from your PC).
You may have to consult the manual for how to use the USB import/export as well as how to record and mixdown, but I've tried to outline the basic process to do what you want which wouldn't be discussed int he manual.
Hope this helps.
