Error 12 sys reset

I have a DP02 multitrack recorder. When I turn it on it says error 12 sys reset please power down. Sometimes it goes to shutdown mode and just stays there and it shows musical notes flying. It stays there and never shuts down.Is there a way to fix this online or do I have to send it away?

Usually caused by a faulty or inadequate power supply failing to get the drive spinning up to the required speed.

I'd try replacing the power supply with one that matches the specs in the manual first to see if that fixes the problem.

If it doesn't you're looking at a possible hard drive reformat which will mean taking the drive out, hooking it up to a computer, reformating and then placing the drive back into the DP02.

Fortunately in most cases its a simple matter of replacing the power adapter.

Good lick.

Mic/line inputs Yamaha md8 Multitrack recorder not working


A little testing is required to nail this down.

1) Will a standard mic work in either channel?
2) Will a line level source work in either channel?

It is likely that either the power supply for the phantom power or the supply for the mic pre-amp IC has failed or the IC itself has failed. If a standard mic works, then it is the phantom power supply that is faulty.

I am not aware of any service manual available other than from Yamaha directly (for a price of course...)

If you can update this with the test results, perhaps we can walk through this repair.

You will lose all your data. Here are the instructions:
Turn off your unit, push down on the following buttons; Quick Routing, Shift, Sendand Shut Down button. Keep all these buttons down at the same time and keep them down while you turn on the power button to boot up the unit. You will see the changes being made as the unit boots up. Good Luck!

My DP-02CF comes up with no free disk space even though i've bounced everything together and ive still got 6 tracks left. how can i stop this from happening


This is just a suggestion - back up the track to a PC using the USB port and reload and reburn on a new disc. Sounds like you may have a bad file and or disc. And by the way you worded this, has this happened before? Make sure the activity light is out and your tracks have been recorded fully before turning the unit off or you will get "end of file" errors.

Poor Recording Level on the Tascam DP-02CF

Transferring songs onto new CF card


You'll have to create backups of your songs and transfer those backups using USB to your PC. Then with the 8 GB card inserted you can reimport them to the Tascam (USB) and restore them to the current working song which will then get saved on your 8 GB card. Do this for each song and then you can discard (delete) those backed up song files while connected to the PC.

Hope this helps.

Problem importing files to Tascam DP02-cf


They don't mention in the manual that in addition to being 44.4khz, 16bit, mono, the wav file also has to be at a bit rate of 705kbps. Using Audacity (freeware) you can convert most any audio file into the necessary wav format for the DP-02cf to use.

Recording midi player


Yes. You can record the midi output to a track using bounce mode.

With you midi (or smf) file loaded into the midi tone generator,
press shift-bounce to enter bounce mode. Then arm a track for recording. Turn the fader up for that track, the master fader and the fader for the midi tone generator. Make sure than all other track faders are down or the tracks are muted (or empty) and press play and record. The midi song will be recorded to the track in real time. Just press 'stop' when done and exit bounce mode (by pressing the bounce button again).

Tascam DP-02cf


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.

Boot Problem in TASCAM 2488


Turning the power off with out going through the shut-down process will sometimes trash the hard drive making it un readable. To force format of hard drive hold down the shut down, send, shift and quick routing keys at the same time then turn power on. This will format the HD. When finished the display will show "Factory initalize complete" "please power off" NOTE you will lose every thing on the HD including the demo song.
