Question about Tascam DP01 All-In-One Recording Package Microphone

1 Answer

Record, playback problem

I have a DP-01 and a micro Korg synth. I have plugged the synth into the DP via the mic line/guitar with a quarter inch cable. When I plug in my headphones and turn up the volume on track 1 and the master volume I can hear my synth through the DP just fine. So I followed the instructions to record and while recording I can hear what I'm playing and the level monitor on the DP's LCD registers the sound. However when I stop recording and try to playback what I've just recorded, all I hear is the fuzz/white noise in my headphones. So my first question is how do I hear the playback of what I've just recorded? My second question would be have I recorded properly? Please help. Your time and consideration is most appreciated--Nick

Hi Nick,

The fuzz/white noise is a little confusing and it seems to be saying that you are recording something vs trying to record incorrectly and getting nothing at all. Anyway, despite that, I would try going over your recording steps first.

First off make sure your Hi-Z input is not set to the Hi-Z or guitar setting. It is possible your that MicroKorg is overloading the input and distorting. You should however have heard that in the headphones too, so I'm not so sure that's the problem. The next thing to check is to make sure your input is assigned to the track you expect to be recording on. (Press the input's button to check this. The select/record button over the track should flash).

Next make sure your track is armed for recording before you press 'play+record' (Record button above the track should light steady when recording).

Hope this helps.

DP-01 Wont Record


You may need to assign one of the inputs (a or b) to the track you want to record to. Do this by first pressing the 'Assign A' or 'Assign B' (if you are lining in a guitar to the Hi-Z input then you'll be using 'Assign A') and then press the record/select button for the track to assign. After doing this you'll arm your track for recording and proceed to record.

Hope this helps.

go to control panel> hardware and sound> sound; click recording tab, select USB Audio Codec, select Properties, click Advanced tab, select 2 Channel 16 bit 44100Hz and then hit apply. You have to make sure you have the 2 channel option selected. otherwise the computer just recognizes one channel and assigns it for playback. HTH

Cannot record both mic and electric guitar in daw


Disagree with previous post. The GTrack is designed to record vocals and a mono insrtument at the same time. That's its main selling point. It should also allow monitoring of both the vocals and guitar alongside the playback from the computer. In your computer's Control Panel, go to sound preferences, select the usb microphone and click on advanced tab. It is likely yours is set up to record 1 channel at CD quality - this is how many ship for some reason. Set it to 2 Channels CD quality.
In Sonar, set your track input as USB Left for the vocals, and USB Right for your guitar.

Need help DP-01 basic hook up to synthesizer


Midi on the DP-01 is only for time synching with another device, synth, etc. To hear your synth through the DP-01 run a 1/4" patch cord from the audio outs (R and L) on your synth into the A and B inputs of your DP-01. Then assign the inputs to tracks and arm them for recording. You should then be able to hear your synth playing out of whatever you are using to monitor you DP-01 (headphones, stereo or powered monitors). To record the synth output simply press play and record together on the tascam.

Need to know how to use mic with dp-01


First you'll need to know if your mic is dynamic or requires phantom power. The DP-01 does not provide phantom power, but the DP-01FX and the DP01-FX/CD units have the option of turning on phantom power for their two XRL mic jacks. The DP-01 simply has 1/4" jacks for mics. Typically if your mic comes with a 1/4" plug it will be dynamic, but that isn't always true.

Plug it into the mic/line jack in the front of the unit and turn up the input volume knob. Then depending on which of the two inputs you used you'll have to press the Assign button (A or B) and then the rec button over one of the tracks and turn up the track fader. You'll also need to insure that the master fader is turned up and you should then be able to see the meters moving when speaking into the mic and hear the output in your headphones.

To record simply press the rec button on the assigned track again (it will light steady) to arm the track for recording and press the play and record together.

Hope this helps.

Using the dp-01 as a interface mixer


If you're asking about being able to use the DP-01s knobs and sliders to control the virtual knobs and sliders on some PC recording software the answer would be 'no'.

But if you just want to use the DP-01 to act as a mixer for incoming signals (like microphones and or guitars or other instruments) the answer is 'kind of'. The DP-01 cannot act as a usb interface for your PC, but it can sit in front of a usb interface or sound card and act as a mixer of sorts to mix input from instruments through the monitor outs and then into your computers sound cards or usb interfaces audio-in jacks. You are however limited to two simultaneous inputs though as that is all the DP-01 can handle.

Cheers.

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.

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.
