The DP-01 does not have a MIDI-In function. Instead, it allows you to plug the MIDI device into the signal chain. Plug the MIDI device into the DP-01 by using the MPC2000xl analog 1/4" jacks on the back, marked "Stereo Right" and "Stereo Left" (right next to the headphone jack at the rear top left). Run those 1/4" cables to the front of your DP-01, into the 1/4" jacks provided.

Hold the Assign button on the DP-01 for the LEFT channel and touch the REC key for the channel you want to assign it to - the REC light will flash red to let you know the routing was successful. Do the same for the RIGHT channel.

You should also plug the MIDI-Out cable from the DP-01 into the mpc2000xl so that the clocks of the devices can be synchronized.

I am trying to connect my Korg M1 via my presonus interface into my Studio One program. HOw do I get connected after MIDI cables are hooked up?


Hope i did not miss understood...
If MIDI is hooked up there are only the audio signals left to connect...
Try to connect the audio outputs from the M1 to the DI´s of the interface via instrument line cables and routing them to/in your software...then set up midi channels for one instrument track that triggers the M1 and activate an audio track to record/monitor your incoming M1 audio signal

Need help DP-01 basic hook up to synthesizer


Midi on the DP-01 is only for time synching with another device, synth, etc. To hear your synth through the DP-01 run a 1/4" patch cord from the audio outs (R and L) on your synth into the A and B inputs of your DP-01. Then assign the inputs to tracks and arm them for recording. You should then be able to hear your synth playing out of whatever you are using to monitor you DP-01 (headphones, stereo or powered monitors). To record the synth output simply press play and record together on the tascam.

Mpc200oxl forces me to save my beats as midi


Hi,

Not sure if this basic instruction is what you are looking for or not, as I'm not sure how long you've been using the Akai Sampler. So forgive me if this is too basic and you're having a real problem other than one that assumes you are fairly new to the unit. Here goes:

To change the file format (or type of save) the MPC will perform a save in, you need to access the Save Screen:

Hold SHIFT and press LOAD (3 on the numeric keypad) to enter the Disk mode. Press SAVE [F2] to display the save screen. You then need to select the Type: - if it is only saving midi then the type will be "Save a Sequence" on this screen. You can change it to "Save All Sequences & Songs" if that is what you are referring to as 'the normal way'.

Hope this helps.

Recording midi player


Yes. You can record the midi output to a track using bounce mode.

With you midi (or smf) file loaded into the midi tone generator,
press shift-bounce to enter bounce mode. Then arm a track for recording. Turn the fader up for that track, the master fader and the fader for the midi tone generator. Make sure than all other track faders are down or the tracks are muted (or empty) and press play and record. The midi song will be recorded to the track in real time. Just press 'stop' when done and exit bounce mode (by pressing the bounce button again).

Don't know how to actually record


To record you need to first assign your input to a track, then arm the track for recording, and then press play + record at the same time.

1. So you would patch you mixer's output into an input on your DP01 (say input A). You can run some audio to set the level with the input level knob (located next to input A on the front panel).

2. Then to assign that input to a track simply press and hold the 'input A' button and then press the 'rec' button of the track you with to record on. The 'rec' button will flash rapidly to indicate that the input is assigned to the track.

(To assign the input to a different track you have to clear the input assignment from the first track and assign the input to a new track. To clear an assignment press the input assign key, A in this case, and the track it's assigned to will flash its 'rec' button. Hold down the input assign key and then press the flashing 'rec' button. The button will stop flashing and the input can then be assigned to another track by following step 2 again).

3. Next, to arm the track for recording simply press the 'rec' button for that track. The 'rec' button with flash slowly.

4. To begin recording press play + record together in the transport section and the 'rec' light for the armed track will stop flashing and light steadily. Press 'stop' to end recording.

This should get you started. The operation of the DP01 is actually pretty intuitive once you've gone through it a couple of times (which is one of the real strengths of the unit). You'll be multitracking like an expert in no time.

Cheers,

bd.

Plugging in keyboard


MIDI only carries digital information, not audio. Midi is used to communicate patch settings and note value information. If you want the recording to know the note value, then you should use midi. This is useful if you want to do things like adding rythm tracks, etc.

If your keyboard has audio/line out (as opposed to headphone out), use that, as it is matched much better in impedance. If it doesn't have audio/line out, then you can use the headphone jack, but you will have to turn the attenuation way down because the headphone jack impedance is much higher. This will tend to distort on the recording if you are not careful.

The first thing to know about digital recording is that distortion is much more of a problem. I won't get into the theory of this, just know that impedance mismatching is more of a problem with digital.

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.

Click track


Two things to check.

First in the synch/midi screen make sure the 'mode' option is set properly. The options are REC and REC/PLAY. This tells the metronome (click) when to sound, either just while recording or both when recording and playing back.

The only other thing I can think of would be to make sure that in your monitor selection that the mute button is not pressed. Pressing the 'mute' button does not mute the headphones, just the monitor output.

Best of luck.

Cheers.

Getting midi to register


Your question is very confusing. Try rephrasing it. You should try drawing a diagram with this and uploading it to your question to better explain yourself. If you can't upload it (I know I can through the answer, but I'm not so sure about the question) you can e-mail it to me. My address is johnkennick@yahoo.com , if not just put some more detail into the question and try rephrasing it. I'm not really sure about the details of your system.
