Sounds like you are using the DP-02's 'stereo mix' inputs here. If so, the signal input from those is only routed to the line out and headphone jacks and cannot be recorded using the DP-02.

To record from a stereo you need to take the left and right aux outs (or some other line out - like the tape outs) from the stereo and put them into the main A and B mic/line inputs on far right of the DP-02's back panel. Then assign them to two respective tracks and you can record the stereo output to the DP-02. Just make sure you use a line level output from the stereo as the amplified speaker output can overpower and damage the inputs on the DP-02. You might need a couple of rca to 1/4 inch adapters to accomplish this.

Hope this helps.

When I record vocals with stereo setting it always records left more in favour of the right. Is there a way to fix this?


Your microphone is a mono input (one), therefore recording in stereo is not practical. Stereo inputs are left and right (two inputs). Whatever your recording setup or audio workstation, the track you record to from your microphone needs to mono.

This could be due to the output volume and monitor mix are turned too low. You can fix this by adjusting the input gain levels in the ASIO settings menu.

DP02- turning on an effect but not recording effect on track


You MIGHT try turning on the effect right after hitting record. It is possible that the record cancels the effects... I don't know if this is possible, but if it is, try it.

I can kind of see a technical reason they might do this.

Hi,

You cannot rip a CD directly into the DP-02 using the unit's CD drive.

Your choices for doing what you want are:

1.) Rip the CD into .wav files onto your PC using ripper of your choice. Then you'll have to edit the resulting .wav file using a program like 'Audacity' (which is a free one) and convert the stereo wav files into 2 mono wav files. You'll have to save the mono files with dos 8.3 filenames and then import them into the DP02 using the instructions for importing wav files in the manual. To preserve the stereo, import each mono wav file to a separate adjacent track on the DP02 and then pan one left and one right.

2.) You could play the CD on a stereo and connect the stereo outs to the two inputs on the DP02 to record the CD track. You'll need patch cords which are RCA (mini phono 1/8" jack) to regular phono (1/4") to do this.

Cheers,

For Tascam DP02 can't record and listen


Hi,

Assuming your PA is a Yamaha STAGEPAS (although I thought 500 watts per side was the biggest one you could get). Anyway, on your PA's panel you will have the karaoke machine(s) plugged into the CD ins (top of the panel), while closer to the bottom you'll see the 'monitor outs' L and R 1/4 inch jacks. These are where you'd run the L and R from the PA into your Tascam (or L alone for mono out). The monitor outs are line level and are good for independently powered speakers, recording equipment, mixers etc. Just avoid using any outputs labelled 'speakers'.

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.

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.

I need more tracks!


Your preamp needs to have 1/4" output jacks which channel all of the mic inputs into these two outs. This isn't typically how a mic preamp is set up however. They often will have 2 ADAT outs which output all the inputs in stereo or some other configuration. You may have one that can do this, but if not you'll probably end up needing some kind of basic external mixer which can handle all of the individual outs from your preamp through the mixer's inputs and then you'd run the main outputs from your mixer into the two inputs on your Tascam DP-01.

When I record from my Bass..I hear Mono only


unless you bass is a stero model... and there are only very few out there that are, then you may be using channel setup for stereo use. change it back to a monochannel. but be sure that you also have the output of that channel panned to the center or you will always have left or right output only. Or mono as I assume you are desribing. Hit me back if you want to know more about it.
