Tascam DP02 - LOW VOLUMES!

I am getting seriously low volume levels when I listen to playback, and when I burn and finalize a CD. I have to turn my CD player up all the way just to barely hear it. I have my hook ups right, and have my input channels wide open. I also had the Master Fader wide open while recording my Master Track. Phantom Power is on as well.

What can I do, or is this just how it is??

    Try checking your INPUT TRIM too. Mine are set at around 75% of max. This is where the signal first enters the unit. It can make a world of difference. Sorry to not mention it earlier.

Phantom power should only be used with a condenser/ribbon mic. If you're using a dynamic mic (like the one in the photo) you don't need phantom power. Also I run my mics and instruments through a mixer, then into the unit. Also if you're mixing your masters at a low volume, the CD will play at a lower volume. Try mastering at as high a volume as possible, avoid clipping of course. But get it as loud as possible while mastering. Then the master copy should be louder. I have a DP02 and found out it needs decent monitors to mix and master. That's all I've got.

    Try checking your INPUT TRIM. mine are set at 75% of max. It gives you a stronger/louder input to start with.

The sound output is very low even using earphones can the audio output be upgraded to give a normal listening level.


Probably not without using separate amplified speakers. Check the mixer levels are set correctly.

When i transfer songs from my tascam to my computer or burn to a cd. The audio volume is extremely low. How do I fix this.


There are simple free solutions for editing audio
Try using audacity
When you have it installed simply open your imported tracks, hit ctrl+A to select all the entire track, then pick Effect> Amplify. It will automatically choose a comfortable listening volume, if you still can't hear you may want to tinker with the audio a bit more.

Sound of the recording after burnt to a cd is very low


adjust your top knob which is called the gain, this will allow the incoming signal to be muchlouder depending on where you set it , the bottom fader is for playback volume and mixing and you should also a avolume control for your head set , follow also the recording instructions in your manual for optimal settings , there,s no reason that your recordings should come out with low volume other then your gain control being set to low , hope i was able to help , if i was please leave a nice rating ,sincerely glenn mayer

Low volume on finalized songs.


There's not really any magic fix to this as far as I'm aware. I usually don't burn CD's from my Tascam directly, but export the mix to the PC and do final touches and burn from there. I don't typically normalize though and the levels are what has come out of the Tascam. I do however use compression on many of the tracks (and sometimes on the whole mix) before exporting which will squash the peaks and lows together and thus give you an overall higher volume with your level meters peaking in the normal place you're used to.

There are other factors like EQ without which a mix can sound too loud and perhaps cause you to lower the levels when really things in the mix just need to be allowed to sit in different EQ bands.

Compression is the key though. Unfortunately even well recorded instruments and vocals naturally contain wide fluxuation in terms of lows and highs and these need to be smoothed out in order to obtain anywhere near the volume of a commercial CD. With compression alone the result may still fall short as the use of pro quality mastering effects can really make a world of difference to overall percieved volume as well.

Hope this helped

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,
bd.

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'.

DP-01FX/CD sound quality of CDs


Nothing really specific other than to make sure you are recording as close to 0 db as possible without going over. Your master fader also needs to be set at 0db or above as this effects the volume when mastering.

Commercial CDs use a lot of compression to attain volume levels which aren't attainable without it. You should however be able to reproduce onto CD the volume levels you are hearing on your Tascam without resorting to compression.

To troubleshoot, you might want to try exporting your master tracks as wav files onto your computer via usb and then listening to them there. If the volume is low there you aren't creating master tracks with good volume (see above: master fader level), if the tracks sound good as wavs on your PC, then burn them onto a cd from there. If that CD has proper volume then you may have some problem with your Tascam CD burner although I've never seen a situation where a burner actually caused low volume like this.

Best of luck.
