Question about Tascam DP01 All-In-One Recording Package Microphone

1 Answer

DP-01FX/CD I have used the unit to some extent at this point and used the DAO (Disk at once) method of burning multiple tracks onto blank CD-R discs (Memorex brand). I have finally got the recoding, mixing and mastering processes tweeked and coming up with some really fine sound from the machine. My problem is that the CD's produced will either skip, freeze or not even be recognized by some of the CD/DVD players out there. Those same players will however, play store bought CD's without any problem. I am looking to be able to produce and reproduce my own recordings with that same store bought quality. Is there a solution?

Unfortunately it's pretty much impossible to get a recording to sound like anything produced commercially these days without using lots of compression. Your burned CD problems might be the result of a faulty burner on your DP01-FX/CD. I have a 2488 and I still export all my mastered songs as wav files and burn them onto disc using my PC just because of the flexibility on the PC and you can control settings better which can cause disc burning problems (not to mention that the burner is newer and faster on my PC).

If you don't want to work on a PC you could look into replacing the burner in your Tascam. It is similar to replacing a PC's burner and the either the Tascam site and/or the Tascam Forum should be able to provide you with the specs and a list of compatible CD burners.

To get the final product to sound louder you could invest in an external compressor (a good used one should run you less than $100). You'll have to use the DP01's send loops to route a bounce of the stereo mix out to the compressor and then route the result back into the DP01 inputs and record on a couple of free tracks.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

I have recorded single track on to rewritable disc. on windows media player . it has been finalised will not allow me to record another track to disc. How do i do this? many thanks ALEX


If you are using CD +/- R cds or DVD +/-, you can only write to them once. Once something has been written to the disk no mater how small, that is the only time it will write. In order to add multiple tracks to a disk you will have to create a play list that will fit on the disk then burn the entire list all at once. The only disks that allow for multiple write capabilities are CDRW +/- or DVDRW +/-. When using those types of disks, make sure you do not overwrite the tracks that are already installed on the disks.

I tried to make an exact copy of a CD via Sony Vaio but the copy is messed up. Certain cuts sound scratched. The original CD is clean and plays normally. Does my CD drive need fixing? It (software)...


What type of CD did you copy? Different CD types have different methods for copying them (Example: a music CD has multiple tracks to copy; better to rip them then reburn them onto a blank disk; a DVD disk has multiple data, video and audio files protected on the disk, a straight copy wont work). Based on your question, you tried copying a music CD. Use a program like Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, or iTunes to rip the disk, then copy the ripped tracks to a blank disk. All three of these programs are free, and there are tons of other free alternatives out there to do this.

You're creating Disk images on your Hard Disc Drive.

See where your CD Burning Software stores the images of the Disk and use the appropriate option to burn them onto a blank CD.

DP-01FX/CD sound quality of CDs


Nothing really specific other than to make sure you are recording as close to 0 db as possible without going over. Your master fader also needs to be set at 0db or above as this effects the volume when mastering.

Commercial CDs use a lot of compression to attain volume levels which aren't attainable without it. You should however be able to reproduce onto CD the volume levels you are hearing on your Tascam without resorting to compression.

To troubleshoot, you might want to try exporting your master tracks as wav files onto your computer via usb and then listening to them there. If the volume is low there you aren't creating master tracks with good volume (see above: master fader level), if the tracks sound good as wavs on your PC, then burn them onto a cd from there. If that CD has proper volume then you may have some problem with your Tascam CD burner although I've never seen a situation where a burner actually caused low volume like this.

Best of luck.
