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.

Korg Microkorg XL Vocoder Not Working (No Sound)


Check the mic and connections all through its input into the unit. I would check the cartridge of the mic for continuity for the reason that (I think but not 100% sure) on this model, I think there has to be sound at the mic or it does go silent in vocode mode. This is how it digitizes the mic and keys together. The played keys cannot put onto pitch the sound it is NOT picking up at the mic. I think there is a problem with the mic.

you have to make sure the song tracks(1 &2 ) are not armed. then you can assign your vocal to any of the other tracks. after you do this , make sure you arm the track. you should be able to hear your mike.

1) how to make my amp record....because its not working when i try... 2) do i have to a cord in line 1 and 2??? 3) do i have to plug in the cord in :.....line in or line out??????


You will use microphone with balanced XLR connector into the XLR mic input. Note, the ALpha does NOT have phantom power so you cannot use condenser mics.

A guitar can be plugged into the hi-z instrument 1/4 inch jack on the left front of the unit.

To use the line 1/4 inch inputs you will use BALANCED TRS 1/4 inch cables from your source.for these channels. The level on these needs to be line level.

The line outs are for sending audio out to an amp. There appears to be RCA outputs you can use as well.

I am not sure what you mean by making your "amp record"... An amp PLAYS the audio, usually into a speaker.

If you are trying to play a guitar through your amp AND record, then you will connect your guitar to the Alpha, the amp input will have a cable from say Line 1 OUTPUT and when recording wou will have the echo feature on so your guitar is passed through to the amp.

you can use the line in/mic stereo input, but you will have to turn the input level way down to around 1 or 2.

i assume that the record outputd a re rca outs. you can get a rca stereo to 1/8 inch stereo adapter, like the ones they use to connect protable cd palyers to recievers, and then get a 1/8 inch stereo to 1/4 inch stereo adapter form radio shack to complete the connection.

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.

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.

You've got two inputs on the DP-02 so you can record two sources at once.

Depending on how you want the electric guitar recorded (mic the amp, or direct line in) you can in the first case plug your guitar mic into one of the mic inputs on DP02 and plug your vocal mic into the other mic input. You also have the option of plugging the guitar directly into the DP02 (using the hi-z input - I believe it is labelled 'guitar' or something on the DP02. I any event I believe it's the one on the left). This way you only need one mic for use recording the vocal part.

To avoid any 'bleed' between channels you can use the headphones while recording this way and you'll avoid having the unamplified guitar sound coming through over the vocal mic.

Once you have the mics or guitar and mic plugged into two inputs, you need to assign the inputs to a channel (track) to record on. You do this by pressing the select button for the input and then pressing the select button for the track where you want to record the input. Do this for both inputs so that they are recording on different tracks. Then arm the tracks for recording by pressing the record button for each track and the lighted buttons will flash above each armed track. Then just press play and record and you'll be recording. You can go back and redo it as many times as you like and record over what is there, or preserve a take and assign a new track (or tracks) for another take. You've got 8 to play with.

Hope this helps.

Problem using Kaoss Pad for synths.


Okay, maybe this is rude, but TOTALLY ignore Musicaldude's solution, if you haven't already found out the ugly way. Boosting the signal that goes into the KP will just make the input LED light up red and you'll hear digital clipping [gross] and eventually hit a ceiling of all-crappy-staticy-noise and no real guitar left. Having it in the FX loop, and the Headphone-out workaround are smart moves already, except the Headphone out adds noticeable noise/hum vs the usual outs. But to help close the gap between your guitar's volume and the miniKP's internal synths (and program 63 and 65's feedback noizes, which build up even louder than the synths) unplug one of the RCA plugs from the KP's OUTput, pick one, left or right, whichever. You'll notice this gives you a guitar volume boost. BUT its still not enough...the synths and 63 and 65's feedback are still speaker-blowingly loud. Check the manual, it says you can adjust the wet/dry volume by holding down Tempo and Preset A together, then turning the knob and picking 1 thru 99. Make sure you're on the synth setting you want to use already. Do this thing. Play the synth with your finger, while you lower the number with that knob. Stay around 50 if you've got the one RCA plug dangling, around 20 if both are in. Whatever you think matches your usual playing volume. When its where you like it, hold the A or B button (wherever you want to save this) down and click Hold, this will save it onto that preset button. Now from now on, NEVER use 63, 65, or the synths if you're on whatever preset you DIDN'T just save. i.e. If you chose preset B, from now on you can just tap preset B and it remembers your volume adjustment from before, voila, normal-volume touchpad synth. But go back to preset A for every other effect, or you'll barely be able to hear the FX. KORG should've given us more preset buttons to save onto. Godspeed. I've never seen this site before, but I have this pedal, and experienced the same b.s. myself. Now I'm down to one preset button and quick knob-turning. Whee.
