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.

Have you used a shotgun microphone before? Is there any changes you need to do in the recording setup to use shotguns?


First you need to get the understanding for the use of a shotgun mic.
It's ment to be used for movies, live recordings, and mic mixing.
So for mic mixing you need to get all the mics for the musicians leveled and then you mix the whole studio sound together by getting a level of how all sound is in sync.
I hope this was helpful.

TASCAM DP-01 won`t startup


Press and hold down the "track edit" and the "shut down" buttons while turning the power on until it says "-init screen- please wait". It will ask you if you want to initialize hdd. If so press yes/enter. This Will wipe your hard drive clean. If no just press no/exit. This works on the dp-01fx. It should work on the dp-01 as well.

TASCAM DP-02 (You don't even include it here in your products!)


Here's a link to the DVD tutorial for the DP-02:

http://www.amazon.com/Tascam-DP-02-Video-Tutorial-Manual/dp/B001JP6572

There is also a video on Tascam's support page for this product that you can download for free:

http://www.tascam.com/products/dp-02;9,16,3580,19.html

You can ask questions here or consider joining Tascam Forums (I think it costs $4) and talk to Tascam experts from all over.

http://www.tascamforums.com/

The DP-02 operates almost exactly as the DP-01 did, so manuals and videos for one should pretty much guide you correctly when applied to the other, but the video in the first link is the correct on for the DP-02.

Hope this helps.

Best of luck.

Need to clean up a DP-01


The only danger I can think of is static shock destroying components.

I would clean it with isopropyl alcohol.

You can relube the sliders with silicone gasket lube.

My computer won't recognize my DP-01 Tascam recorder.


open the usb port on your dp-01 by going to "disk" in the "menu" select "usb opn/clse" press enter twice.

if your pc is connected to ur dp-01 it should reconize it, open the files by going into my computer as you would with a memory stick or card.

What kind of driver does my tascam dp 01 cd take.


No CD comes with the DP-01. The Tascam relys on your computers USB drivers to work.

You should probably try the DP-01 on someones else's computer first to se if it works there.

This is usually some kind of incompatiblity between the usb cable or the use hub and the usb speed (1.1 or 2.0). I would try bypassing any usb hub you might have in use first. If that doesn't work you might want to try another usb cable.

Good luck.

Failure to read WAVE file when trying to import a track.


Wav files need to be in mono to be imported into the dp-01. Fruity Loops and a most other programs by default save wav files in stereo. You'll need to save the files again as mono wav files before attempting to import them into the dp-01.

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.

(need more tracks) dp01


I'm guessing that you're asking whether the mixer needs phantom power to the mics in which case the answer is that you wouldn't need power there if the mic preamp is providing it already. You'd just plug the mixer's main 1/4" outputs into the DP-01s 1/4" inputs. The 1/4" inputs on the DP-01 are not powered anyway, only the XLR jacks can be powered by turning the phantom power switch on.
