    I've tried what the solution guy said and it still doesn't work. I have a DP-01 and am trying to transfer my 'good' music to my dp02. I export tracks, mono tracks onto my compter, burn it to a CD as wav files and insert the burned cd into the dp02 and it still wont read it. Tracks are mono and songs are stereo. I used audacity to break down the stereo tracks and it didnt work then either. My problem is that I dont have and dont want a computer, so I finally borrowed a computer and transfered the files throught the usb. I wish it was easier than this. I tried everything. I tried slower burn speads on my computer. I was thinking it was the type of cd, but Im pretty sure its compatible according to the maunual. I also tried using a different cd but it no luck. my next stop I think is to call tascam and ask.

    How do you edit the .wav file to concert the stereo wav into 2 mono wavs. I attempted this, but wasn't successful in getting the file to show up on the TASCAM DP-02

Hi,

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.

Cheers,
bd.

The Tascam DP-02 has a CD Burner not a reader/Player.

Burning Data disks with winXP "built-in" software (i.e. Dragging files to CD drive and "writing" to disk) didn't work for me.  Use Nero or maybe other good program to burn import data disks for DP01fx/cd!
Doesn't seem to matter what type of CD's you use either.  I did however elect to "finalize" disk after burning.  Does windows have an option for that?
Sure, files must be mono .wav files, 44kHz, 16bit, etc.  Easy convert with NGwave.

TASCAM DP-02 (You don't even include it here in your products!)


Here's a link to the DVD tutorial for the DP-02:

http://www.amazon.com/Tascam-DP-02-Video-Tutorial-Manual/dp/B001JP6572

There is also a video on Tascam's support page for this product that you can download for free:

http://www.tascam.com/products/dp-02;9,16,3580,19.html

You can ask questions here or consider joining Tascam Forums (I think it costs $4) and talk to Tascam experts from all over.

http://www.tascamforums.com/

The DP-02 operates almost exactly as the DP-01 did, so manuals and videos for one should pretty much guide you correctly when applied to the other, but the video in the first link is the correct on for the DP-02.

Hope this helps.

Best of luck.

Tascam DP02 - LOW VOLUMES!


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.

I have a Tascam DP-02(not 01) and need to seperate songs


You can use the track edit functions to mark the beginning and end of a song to cut or copy and then insert the song onto its own track(s). (If it's in stereo you'd have it recorded on two tracks).

Or you could consider just exporting the whole track(s) via USB (or using the SF card) onto a PC for editing with the program of your choice.

Dp02 recording music(from stero)


Sounds like you are using the DP-02's 'stereo mix' inputs here. If so, the signal input from those is only routed to the line out and headphone jacks and cannot be recorded using the DP-02.

To record from a stereo you need to take the left and right aux outs (or some other line out - like the tape outs) from the stereo and put them into the main A and B mic/line inputs on far right of the DP-02's back panel. Then assign them to two respective tracks and you can record the stereo output to the DP-02. Just make sure you use a line level output from the stereo as the amplified speaker output can overpower and damage the inputs on the DP-02. You might need a couple of rca to 1/4 inch adapters to accomplish this.

Hope this helps.

Timing of Mastering and burning final copy to CD


Hi,

I don't use my Tascam to create CDs for exactly the reasons you are asking about. I do a bounce mix to a couple of tracks and then export via usb to a PC for finalizing and CD creation there.

To answer your questions, you do always need to create a master first for each sermon on the DP-02 before you can burn it to a CD. You also have to finalize the CD to play it on other players.

Mastering as well occurs in real time, so it does take 60 minutes to create a master for a 60 minute recording.

As I don't burn from my Tascam, I didn't realize the burn time was so long though. I would have expected that to be faster for sure. I know my old 2488 MkI is supposed to burn at 4x and I believe the MkII burns at 8x. The DP-02 is newer than both and I would assume it would burn even faster.

Anyway, as I said you might wish to go the PC route. That way you can export the tracks without having to master them and burn them from the PC to CD at up to 40x (depending on the speed of your PC's burner).

Hope this helps.

Just bought a DP-02 w/40gb hard drive


Hi,

You'll first need to find some aux audio out jacks on your karaoke machine. You might need an adapter, but the basic idea will be to connect the aux out from the karaoke machine to an input on your Tascam DP-02.

Then on the DP-02 you need to assign whatever input your plugged into to one of the 8 tracks. Let's say you're using the left input (input A) and want to put the karaoke music on track 1. You'll press the 'Assign A' button on the DP-02 and while holding it then press the 'Rec' button of track 1. The 'Rec' button will flash rapidly to show its been assigned. (for reference: assigning an input is better described on page 23 of the manual). Then you'll want to arm track 1 to record. Press the 'rec' button for track 1 and it will start to flash slowly to show it has been armed for recording. Now you are ready to start recording. On the DP-02 press the large round play and record buttons on the lower right together to start recording and start your karioke machine playing. When the song is done press stop on the DP-02.

Now to record your vocals you'll need your mic to be plugged in (lets' say it's in input B). You'll need to assign this input to a free track (track 2). Press the 'Assign B' button and while holding it press the 'Rec' button for track 2 (rec button will flash rapidly). Then you'll want to un-arm track 1 and arm track 2 for recording. To do this press the 'rec' button for track 1 so that the light goes off and then press the 'rec' button for track 2 so that it flashes slowly.

So now when you press play and record together to record, you'll hear track 1 playing (the karaoke track you recorded earlier) and you'll be recording vox on track 2. Of course you'll also be recording whatever you hear in the room onto track 2 along with your singing, so in order to get a clean recording there (prevent bleed) you'll want to plug some headphones into the DP-02 and listen to those as you record.

That's pretty much all there is to it. Some variations if you wish to record the karioke in stereo vs mono (I gave you the instructions for mono here), and you may need to turn on phantom power if you have a non-powered mic, but the idea is basically the same.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.
