To record you need to first assign your input to a track, then arm the track for recording, and then press play + record at the same time.

1. So you would patch you mixer's output into an input on your DP01 (say input A). You can run some audio to set the level with the input level knob (located next to input A on the front panel).

2. Then to assign that input to a track simply press and hold the 'input A' button and then press the 'rec' button of the track you with to record on. The 'rec' button will flash rapidly to indicate that the input is assigned to the track.

(To assign the input to a different track you have to clear the input assignment from the first track and assign the input to a new track. To clear an assignment press the input assign key, A in this case, and the track it's assigned to will flash its 'rec' button. Hold down the input assign key and then press the flashing 'rec' button. The button will stop flashing and the input can then be assigned to another track by following step 2 again).

3. Next, to arm the track for recording simply press the 'rec' button for that track. The 'rec' button with flash slowly.

4. To begin recording press play + record together in the transport section and the 'rec' light for the armed track will stop flashing and light steadily. Press 'stop' to end recording.

This should get you started. The operation of the DP01 is actually pretty intuitive once you've gone through it a couple of times (which is one of the real strengths of the unit). You'll be multitracking like an expert in no time.

Cheers,

bd.

What USB adapter is best to use with the GXL2200?


If you're going to use a mixer anyway, it'd probably be better to run the mixer into the line-in of the computer. Even better would be to just get a USB recording interface, and do the mixing in the software.

Otherwise, Behringer, Alesis, Yamaha, and probably other all make USB mixers that should be of similar quality (i.e., very low).

TASCAM MIXER ISSUES


Try first unplugging the system for ten or twenty minutes to reset the eeproms, see if you get the same problems when you plug it back.

Hello There, I just bought the Rode NT1-A, and I am trying to record in protools, but i'm not getting any levels whatsoever. I'm plugged in to an MBOX, in the XLR, I have Phantom Power turned on,...


It sounds like you have done everything right. It would be a good idea to check both the mic and Protools system separately. If you can, verify that the mic works using another device such as a mixer. Also try getting a level into Protools using another mic, preferably a dynamic which doesn't require phantom power. If you are trying to use an original MBOX under Windows 7 or the latest version of OSX then it may not work at all.

There is a 2 second delay with my snowball. I am trying to record and a vocalist needs to listen to their voice quality when doing so, however it is very difficult to actually record with headphones on...


The delay isn't the mic, it's the mixer or how you're routing signal that's causing delay. If you're using a stander mixer use 2 separate "aux.'s" one for your vocalist and 1 for yourself. OR i aux for your vocalist and you listen to final output (stereo mix)

Can i use behringer 200vmx usb to mix only with him and my pc trough usb cable,and only usb cable!!!! i have 5.1sound card, and asio driver?


Depending on the DAW software, you can record just his track at that time. Mixing can be done later with multi-track software, such as Cubase or ProTools.

There should be an extra device in the volume controls under your OS's control panel. That extra device will be your USB mic. Select this device for recording. Monitor the input recording levels BEFORE actually recording to check for clipping. When you are adjusted correctly, you should have plenty of volume, and no clipping. From there, you can modify that waveform like any other track.

Hope that 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.

The mic does not record stereo anymore. when playing back a stereo works fine but when recording in stereomodus only the left channel records, the right channel seems to record silence/noise


This Mic is not a stereo Mic. If you're using a windows computer, check your sound control panel to see if the mic wasn't suddenly set to two channel device.

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 record using a pre recorded sound track, no problem there, then I recorded the voice.. Now how do I get to master this. IT tells me the track is too short and won't let me go into the Master mode. And...


how long is the track you are trying to master i believe it has to be over 30 seconds if your just sampling 8 or so seconds it wont work i know on some models its over a minute to be able to master mix a track.


thanks,

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.
