Re: For Tascam DP02 can't record and listen
Assuming your PA is a Yamaha STAGEPAS (although I thought 500 watts per side was the biggest one you could get). Anyway, on your PA's panel you will have the karaoke machine(s) plugged into the CD ins (top of the panel), while closer to the bottom you'll see the 'monitor outs' L and R 1/4 inch jacks. These are where you'd run the L and R from the PA into your Tascam (or L alone for mono out). The monitor outs are line level and are good for independently powered speakers, recording equipment, mixers etc. Just avoid using any outputs labelled 'speakers'.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

first set the in and out points of song make sure your holding down the shift key while setting in and out points.then pres shift key holding down on it pres master key it should start flashing.then pres record play.good luck
Phantom power should only be used with a condenser/ribbon mic. If you're using a dynamic mic (like the one in the photo) you don't need phantom power. Also I run my mics and instruments through a mixer, then into the unit. Also if you're mixing your masters at a low volume, the CD will play at a lower volume. Try mastering at as high a volume as possible, avoid clipping of course. But get it as loud as possible while mastering. Then the master copy should be louder. I have a DP02 and found out it needs decent monitors to mix and master. That's all I've got.
You cannot rip a CD directly into the DP-02 using the unit's CD drive.
Your choices for doing what you want are:
1.) Rip the CD into .wav files onto your PC using ripper of your choice. Then you'll have to edit the resulting .wav file using a program like 'Audacity' (which is a free one) and convert the stereo wav files into 2 mono wav files. You'll have to save the mono files with dos 8.3 filenames and then import them into the DP02 using the instructions for importing wav files in the manual. To preserve the stereo, import each mono wav file to a separate adjacent track on the DP02 and then pan one left and one right.
2.) You could play the CD on a stereo and connect the stereo outs to the two inputs on the DP02 to record the CD track. You'll need patch cords which are RCA (mini phono 1/8" jack) to regular phono (1/4") to do this.
You've got two inputs on the DP-02 so you can record two sources at once.
Depending on how you want the electric guitar recorded (mic the amp, or direct line in) you can in the first case plug your guitar mic into one of the mic inputs on DP02 and plug your vocal mic into the other mic input. You also have the option of plugging the guitar directly into the DP02 (using the hi-z input - I believe it is labelled 'guitar' or something on the DP02. I any event I believe it's the one on the left). This way you only need one mic for use recording the vocal part.
To avoid any 'bleed' between channels you can use the headphones while recording this way and you'll avoid having the unamplified guitar sound coming through over the vocal mic.
Once you have the mics or guitar and mic plugged into two inputs, you need to assign the inputs to a channel (track) to record on. You do this by pressing the select button for the input and then pressing the select button for the track where you want to record the input. Do this for both inputs so that they are recording on different tracks. Then arm the tracks for recording by pressing the record button for each track and the lighted buttons will flash above each armed track. Then just press play and record and you'll be recording. You can go back and redo it as many times as you like and record over what is there, or preserve a take and assign a new track (or tracks) for another take. You've got 8 to play with.
It was a bad phone jack adapter ... found another one, and it works fine. The DP02 ROCKS! I wish it had build in compression though - I am finding my vocals get too loud and too quiet at times. Maybe it does, I have to keep reading. So far, it does everything except the dishes :)
I started recording back in the 80s, and spent over $30K back then to get equipment that honestly doesn't do as much as this little machine. (I wasn't rich, I went bankrupt).
You have a couple of options with your guitar input. You can either plug your guitar directly into the right (Hi-Z) input and use the Tascam's onboard effects with it instead of your effect pedal.
You can put your pedal in the chain between your guitar and the (Hi-Z) input. So guitar into pedal is, pedal out into Tascam Hi-z in. (Still doesn't use the amp).
Or my preferred method for recording guitar would be to mic the amp. In that case you'd just input a microphone (placed about 8-12 inches from your amp) and record your guitar that way. The mic would be plugged into either one of the Tascams two mic inputs to record the amps speaker output while your guitar, pedal and amp would just be hooked up in the normal way.
Please note: Never plug the output from an amp into any of the Tascams inputs. Those inputs are line-level and the speaker output level which comes out of an amp out would damage your Tascam.
To get a backing song into a track in your Tascam, you'll have to first, using a PC, get the song into a 16 bit mono Wav file format. Then you'll have to use the USB import function to copy that wav file onto your Tascam onto the CF media cards fat partition. From the you'll be able to import it into the Tascam choosing which track it will import into.
