Tascam DV-RA 1000hd read error -64

Hello,

I use a Tascam DV-RA 1000HD in my studio as my two track for mixing. Today, after transferring some files from it to a computer, I got this odd error message that says "read error -64" and it won't go away. I can't do anything with the unit. I'm worried about messing with it, because I have dozens of mixes on the hard drive, and if it reformats, I'm screwed. What can I do?

Pete

SOURCE: tascam 788

The 788 can be used to play music from a SCSI attached CD-RW drive, but the record (and all other mixing functions) are disabled so you are not able to record the CD output onto a track using the SCSI attached drive.

Your options are:

1.) Rip tracks files from the CD onto you PC as wav files. You'll have rip (or later convert) those files to mono 16 or 24 bit wav files at 44.1kHz, use the old dos 8.3 naming convention for the filenames, and them burn them onto a CD-R or CD-RW as data files which can then be taken and imported into the 788.

2.) Play the CD through with an external CD player or stereo and route the output into an input on the 788. Assign the input to a track and record. Be careful to use a line level output, like an aux out (or try the CD player's outputs directly into the 788) if you are using a stereo. Avoid using a speaker output as the signal from a speaker output will be too strong and can damage the 788.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.

SOURCE: Making Midi Files for Importing to Tascam 2488

Hi,

You should always work in wav format if possible because there is a loss of quality with mp3 which is a compression format in which bits are lost in order to compress the file size.

There are a number of wav editors available which will allow you to load a stereo wav and then save it as a mono wav. The free one I use is called Audacity.

When working with FL or Reason I will sometimes import files to the Tascam, or I will take the outputs from my PCs sound card and line them into the tacams inputs and record them live. I only tend to do this with programs (like synths) where I am using an external midi keyboard and can play live what I want to record.

With basic drum pattern tracks I'll usually create them on the PC, save as wav, convert to mono, and then import to a track on the Tascam.

hope this helps.

I have a DP2 Tascam 8 track recorder. Can I come out of my 16 channel mixer into my recorder and record my whole band?


The Tascam DP-02 can only record two tracks at a time.

You will have to mix "on-the-fly" and record the master out, or record each instrument seperately, and just record the drums as a stereo mix.

Having trouble transfering my wav files from computer to tascam ( dp 02) even from cd to tascam . so i am unable to use .help? i have transfered my mp3 audio files to wav and tried to drag and drop from...


I had the same problem too but I figured it out. First you have to make sure your wav file is converted to (MONO) as opposed to Stereo, (which is the default channel setting). The best thing to do is to download a converter program, in my case I downloaded AVS Converter program which all I did was upload the wav file switch it to Mono 1.0 and that was that!! The Cons: for this program it costs money to download for your own keeping. I also suggest Audacity program my computer wont let me download it but a co-worker of mine has it and he said it's free to download.

Want to copy files from Tascam 788 to IMAC's Garage Band


The problem is thus. You have a multitrack recording saved in a format that your portastudio recognizes and you want to use it on your imac. If you can copy the file to the imac as a file, a translator, if one is available, will make it usable by the mac. You won't be able to play it and record on the imac because maintaining the recording as multitrack would require one output from the portastudio and one input on the imac for each recorded track.
Bummer dude. The kluge method would be to play/record 2 tracks at a time (or however many outputs and inputs are available) and hope for some semblance of time alignment, after which you can fine tune it and then start your editing.

If anyone can help me out,please do!


Alternatively you could load your stereo instrumental track into a wav editor, then export each stereo track as a separate mono wav file which you can transfer via usb into you DP-01 and then on you DP-01 import those wav files into two separate tracks which you can pan hard left and hard right so they are in stereo.

Software.


I don't believe any software comes with the DP-01.  After you record your tracks, you have to "export" them to your FAT drive.  Once they are on your FAT drive, you will be able to see them using Windows Explorer.  Your Tascam shows up as a removable disk.  Simply open the drive and you will see the available folders.  The WAV folder will contain your exported .WAV files and you can drag&drop from there.

If you don't have the manual, you can find it online.  It's free!
