If you're asking about being able to use the DP-01s knobs and sliders to control the virtual knobs and sliders on some PC recording software the answer would be 'no'.

But if you just want to use the DP-01 to act as a mixer for incoming signals (like microphones and or guitars or other instruments) the answer is 'kind of'. The DP-01 cannot act as a usb interface for your PC, but it can sit in front of a usb interface or sound card and act as a mixer of sorts to mix input from instruments through the monitor outs and then into your computers sound cards or usb interfaces audio-in jacks. You are however limited to two simultaneous inputs though as that is all the DP-01 can handle.

Cheers.

Need to clean up a DP-01


The only danger I can think of is static shock destroying components.

I would clean it with isopropyl alcohol.

You can relube the sliders with silicone gasket lube.

open the usb port on your dp-01 by going to "disk" in the "menu" select "usb opn/clse" press enter twice.

if your pc is connected to ur dp-01 it should reconize it, open the files by going into my computer as you would with a memory stick or card.

Need help DP-01 basic hook up to synthesizer


Midi on the DP-01 is only for time synching with another device, synth, etc. To hear your synth through the DP-01 run a 1/4" patch cord from the audio outs (R and L) on your synth into the A and B inputs of your DP-01. Then assign the inputs to tracks and arm them for recording. You should then be able to hear your synth playing out of whatever you are using to monitor you DP-01 (headphones, stereo or powered monitors). To record the synth output simply press play and record together on the tascam.

Memory poor


This is an error in Tascam's code that usually means 'out of disk space'. Try using 'delete unused' to free up some space first within the song you're on and after that you might consider backing up some songs to your PC and then deleting them from the DP-01 to free up more disk space.

Hope this helps.

What kind of driver does my tascam dp 01 cd take.


No CD comes with the DP-01. The Tascam relys on your computers USB drivers to work.

You should probably try the DP-01 on someones else's computer first to se if it works there.

This is usually some kind of incompatiblity between the usb cable or the use hub and the usb speed (1.1 or 2.0). I would try bypassing any usb hub you might have in use first. If that doesn't work you might want to try another usb cable.

Good luck.

Failure to read WAVE file when trying to import a track.


Wav files need to be in mono to be imported into the dp-01. Fruity Loops and a most other programs by default save wav files in stereo. You'll need to save the files again as mono wav files before attempting to import them into the dp-01.

Lot of possibilities.

The DP-01 is like a mixer with built-in recording capabilies. You could plug your tunrntables into your DP-01 inputs, assign the inputs to tracks(channels) on the DP-01, and then output those tracks to two channels on your mixer (which would be connected to your PA.

Alternatively, you could plug the outs from your mixer into the DP-01 either by routing individual channels from the mixer into the DP-01 inputs, or outputting the mix into a single track (or into two tracks in stereo on your DP-01). Just assign the DP-01 inputs as usual to the tracks you want to record onto.

Those are just a couple of basic ideas. You could also route a DP-01 track (or the whole mix) back out the DP-01 send loop and through some external processors and then back to tracks on your DP-01, or you could do this through the mixer and then record the final result on the DP-01.

(need more tracks) dp01


I'm guessing that you're asking whether the mixer needs phantom power to the mics in which case the answer is that you wouldn't need power there if the mic preamp is providing it already. You'd just plug the mixer's main 1/4" outputs into the DP-01s 1/4" inputs. The 1/4" inputs on the DP-01 are not powered anyway, only the XLR jacks can be powered by turning the phantom power switch on.

I need more tracks!


Your preamp needs to have 1/4" output jacks which channel all of the mic inputs into these two outs. This isn't typically how a mic preamp is set up however. They often will have 2 ADAT outs which output all the inputs in stereo or some other configuration. You may have one that can do this, but if not you'll probably end up needing some kind of basic external mixer which can handle all of the individual outs from your preamp through the mixer's inputs and then you'd run the main outputs from your mixer into the two inputs on your Tascam DP-01.

Hooking up my mpc2000xl to dp01


The DP-01 does not have a MIDI-In function. Instead, it allows you to plug the MIDI device into the signal chain. Plug the MIDI device into the DP-01 by using the MPC2000xl analog 1/4" jacks on the back, marked "Stereo Right" and "Stereo Left" (right next to the headphone jack at the rear top left). Run those 1/4" cables to the front of your DP-01, into the 1/4" jacks provided.

Hold the Assign button on the DP-01 for the LEFT channel and touch the REC key for the channel you want to assign it to - the REC light will flash red to let you know the routing was successful. Do the same for the RIGHT channel.

You should also plug the MIDI-Out cable from the DP-01 into the mpc2000xl so that the clocks of the devices can be synchronized.
