Wide open as in you cannot control the gain? If so I would suggest controling it from your mixer using a second zone or record out.

DEAR SIR/MADAM WHEN I TRY TO RECORD MY VOICE VIA MICRO PHONE SINGING WHILE THE CD MUSIC TRACKS ARE PLAYING I COULD NOT RECORD THAT TO THE MINI DISC.PLEASE ADVISE ME HOW COULD I CONNECT IT DIGITALLY


It is much easier to use an analog mixer and microphone thru the mixer. I would plug the microphone into the mike input on the mixer and then the Karaoke machine to stereo LINE inputs on the the Mixer, then Mixer Output or Tape Output on the mixer to analog LINE IN on the MiniDisc recorder.
Let me know if you need more info.

When doing analog recording, the recording level is difficult to control manually; however, digital recording is easy because it can be programmed in the set-up menu. Analog recording level can only be...


The make and model number are not showing in the post. Can you provide it?

Do you mean the level easily overloads when you set the input volume? You just have to carefully choose a point safely below 0 dB and make a test pass of the loudest passage while paused or just monitoring. Gain riding is probably not a good idea or very easy given the usual stiffness and small size of the volume control. Dynamic range of the recorder should be sufficient that you need not worry about losing your program in the hash.

Use of any processors in the analog path can result in sudden bursts of higher levels. I use expanders and other devices myself when recording to a Pioneer PDR-509.

I presume you have a manual.

I have used this machine on stage for 20 years and love it!! however i just bought a new one to have for backup, and can't seem to make it dump!! i hook up a pin jack to a recorder just like i always...


There has been a tend to use MIDI sysex files for dumps rather than the unreliable audio recording... The cassette method can be tricky. Setting volume levels for record and playback is tricky.

Also using cassette recorders of newer design often have "compression" that automatically adjusts the volume level on record... these do not work very well... IF you have changed recorders since you had positive results, this might be the problem.

An additional thing can be the recording media as there are differebt coatings for tapes and bias levels.

Save yourself grief and use a MIDI adapter for your PC and record MIDI sysex dumps for these units instead oof cassette audio.

Having problems recording and playing back tascam dc-02 cf


I'm assuming you are plugging the left and right outputs from the karaoke machine into input A and B of the Tascam to record the stereo output of the Karioke. The Tascam works with mono only (you recreate the stereo mix at mixdown or when bouncing mono tracks together with the panning set). Therefore you should be assigning inputs A and B separately. You could press assign A and then the record button above track 1 and then press assign B and the record button above track 2. Then arm tracks 1 and 2 (by pressing record above each). When you then press play and record together you'll record input A onto track 1 and input B onto track 2.

Hope this helps.

Recording Mixes from IDJ2 to my MAC


I don't know about MACs but I assume most computers are the same in their general anatomy when it comes to the sound system.
ie. Windows has a digital recording system built into the OS that allows you to plug an 1/8" patch cable into the "input" of the soundcard of the computer. Years ago I recorded several things from karaoke songs I sang to pre-recorded song I mixed from my DJ console. The volumes needed to tweeked to avoid sound distortion but it sounded so good I've used my recordings at gigs.

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.

Sound Problem when recording


Your digital camera is not a professional recording device. A live gig, especially indoors, or if you're close to the stage, means very high decibels, and you need something more serious if you really want to hear it later. You should get a recording device that can tune to different sensitivities. My old mini disc was great for this before it died. You also need a decent mic. Better luck next time! who was performing btw?
