How to create a master to burn to cd


My name is Kim, I just brought a Tascam DP-02
I do alot of arranging. I have finished products
and I am trying to create a master. The instructions tell me to hold down the master button, but I get an error message stating the track is to short or can't find master. I need to create a CD using the on board CD burner.

Respectfully,

Kim Patillo

1. Press the MASTER key so that it flashes
2. Press and hold the RECORD key and press the PLAY key. Recording starts on this stereo master tracks (record and play light are lit).

Make the mix moves (fades, pan, etc.) that you practiced earlier. These mix moves will affect the sound of the final master stereo track. When the playback point reaches the OUT point, recording stops.

3.Press and hold the SHIFT key and press the play (master) key so that it is lit steadily. now when you press play (master) you can hear the master stereo mix you have just created this mix is output.

How do I import a CD created on the Tascam DP-02 into the Tascam DP-32?


I have the Tascam DP-02 it uses a fat 32 partition, Fat 32 partitions are pretty much obsolete replaced with the New Technology Filing System or N T F S for short. Using the DP-32 systems software try plugging the DP 32 in to your computer once the software for you new unit loads locate and open the fat 32 system folder I'm not sure if the DP 32 uses the same fat 32 partition, But if it does the fat 32 folder should be there, Locate and open it you should then be able to move or delete your recorded material as desired

When I burn my mastered tracks to CD, the volume is so quiet it can hardly be heard at all. The sliders are up almost full.


I believe you need to install an BBE Sonic Maximizer to boost your signal recording before your DP-02

Is there a good tutorial avail? I lost all my music trying to create a cd without finalizing or mastering!!!! Panic took over and i rushed to undo without fully understanding what i did exactly. No...


You can download a manual from the tascam site for this model. as long as you pre-named your songs, they should show in the menu without mastering. You cannot burn any songs without mastering your songs first, however. They will not appear in the create cd section for this very reason.
Record, master,burn.

If I want to record let's say someone speaking for 90 min and burn 2 cd's , one 60min and the other 30 min from the one 90min recording , each one divided into tracks , how would I do this ?


If you want to burn a CD you have to make a master. For 2 cd's you have to make 2 masters, one for each recording.
The best way to handle this is to "create a song" for each speech giver and give each a name.This is because you can make only one master copy of a song before burning a Cd.

But another way is to :
1. Make a master of the first speech giver (who is on one track) and record to the Cd.
2. Make a new master of the second speech giver (on the other track) and record to Cd.
As long as you don't mind, the second mastering will overwrite the first one that you did, but then you already have burned a copy of that Cd!

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.

Timing of Mastering and burning final copy to CD


Hi,

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.

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.
