From my personal experience, and assuming that you want to do this purely in digital format in order to preserve quality, you need to connect an RCA cable from the digital (SP/DIF) output of the DAT machine to an SP/DIF input of a sound card installed into your computer. Please note that the sound card on your computer must have digital input capability. Also the Digital input (sometimes labeled ‘CD digital’) must be selected in your software as part of the recording controls. To do this, open Volume Control, click ‘Options’, select ‘Properties’ and then select ‘Recording’ (as ‘Playback’ is usually enabled as default), and select the ‘digital’ input. Then using a reasonably good a sound editor or other recording software, start recording keeping in mind that you should configure the software to accept whatever audio data format is used on the DAT tape (i.e. 16 bits, 44.1KHz, or 48 KHz etc) I’m my case the software usually displays a box with these parameters before starting to record. Hope This helps. Good luck!

How do I fix a Tascam DA-30 DAT Recorder?


It needs cleaning and new belts some of which are very hard to find because they are smaller than a dime. It can be fixed if the Pinch Roller is not cracked.

My TASCAM DA-20 Mk II DAT doesn't play back any of my tapes. It still appears to record OK, but there is no level meter or sound or track finding when playing back, though the tape seems to be run


Hi Julian,
There is a lot that can go wrong with these miniature helical scan systems. When I had units like that I packed them off to Russ at New Jersey Factory Service and they were restored. I am not sure about parts like drums at this point but Russ is your best chance to get it working again. He has corrected CDRW and DAT as well as just about anything Tascam makes and he even fixed some Sony units too. I know him as the counterpart to the Chicago Factory Service facility when it was open. He was the Manager in New Jersey then.

Hi, My TASCAM DA-20 mkII DAT recorder is holding onto a tape. It will play the tape and there are no error messages, but the tape will not eject. How do I get the tape out without breaking the DAT...


A Technician usually has to get a tape out of a machine when this happens. In radio when I was Chief Engineer for several stations in Chicago I would send my defective decks to Russ at New Jersey Factory Service in Emerson NJ. He knows how to fix these units.

Where can I get tapes for a tascam da -30 mk2 and what are the tapes sizes?


You need what are called "DAT TAPES". Just like Blank analogue audio cassettes they come in a range of lengths fro 15min to 180min. You'd be better off to use something like a 60 or 90min IMHO. Dat tapes can be purchased from places like "studio spares" or any other PRO media supplier. They can be quite pricey. I tend to buy mine in bulk on ebay.
Before you ask, not there are not different tapes for different machines, but the btands do vary. I use either HHB or AMPEX. DO NOT USE COMEPUTER DATA BACK UP CARTRIDGES as a cheap alternataive.....they are different and end up giving you a lot of loss and errors over the years...sometimes instantly (Tale it from experience!)
Best Of Luck

I am having problems with my Tascam Da-88 8


Maybe you could just clean the heads. If anything visible comes off they're TOO dirty. Or or look at it yourself with a strong light source and see the wear by evaluating reflections from the head surface.

Tascam DA 40 DAT Machine ." Loading error "


The DAT machine needs new belts and maybe some cleaning. These fail all the time due to old belts that lose the tension that is required.

Tascam us 144 sync problems with cubase le


Hey lea,

i have a similar setup (Cubase LE & Tascam 144) and each time i start up Cubase i have to make sure there is no digital input going to the tascam. once cubase is started up but no project loaded i plug in my spdif from my DAT machine and then open my project and all is fine. does that answer part of your question?

i have a different problem though, i'm trying to record my DAT tapes which are recorded at 32khz and cubase doesn't recognize that sample rate properly. it'll record no problem, and play them back fine, but exporting always creates mismatched sample rates in the exported file. sucks big time and i have got no idea on how to fix it either.
