Question about Tascam DP01 All-In-One Recording Package Microphone
Hi, I have a Tascam DP-02FX/CD that I'm using to record music as well as sermons in church. Sometimes the sermons may be 30, 45, 60 min. When I am burining them to CD, I guess I have to finalize it before I can play it on other audio CD players. My question is: Does every sermon have to be mastered before you can burn it directly to CD? And if this is the case, does it take the same lenght of time to master the recording as the originally recording time? For example , if the sermon was 60 min, does it take 60 min to master it and another 45-60min to burn it. Is there any type of way the mastering time and the burning time could be faster or speeded up. Please let me know what my options are.
I don't use my Tascam to create CDs for exactly the reasons you are asking about. I do a bounce mix to a couple of tracks and then export via usb to a PC for finalizing and CD creation there.
To answer your questions, you do always need to create a master first for each sermon on the DP-02 before you can burn it to a CD. You also have to finalize the CD to play it on other players.
Mastering as well occurs in real time, so it does take 60 minutes to create a master for a 60 minute recording.
As I don't burn from my Tascam, I didn't realize the burn time was so long though. I would have expected that to be faster for sure. I know my old 2488 MkI is supposed to burn at 4x and I believe the MkII burns at 8x. The DP-02 is newer than both and I would assume it would burn even faster.
Anyway, as I said you might wish to go the PC route. That way you can export the tracks without having to master them and burn them from the PC to CD at up to 40x (depending on the speed of your PC's burner).
Hope this helps.

You must master every recording to burn to cd. That's one of the things with digital recording. Yes the mastering takes as long as the recording does. On the newer dp03 it has a faster mastering, but you have to get the mix set. Yes mastering takes as long as the recording. When you're burning your master disc, it burns the master slowly, so for a sermon or recording of 1hr it will take, almost 45 minutes or more to burn the master. That's the nature of things. You want to listen to the whole thing while mastering in case there are any volume discrepancies, you can increase/decrease volume as needed, so you have a more uniform recording. Masters are burnt slowly to insure they give you a quality master cd. (Always make two master discs, just in case)
