SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: My Teac Z-7000 will not record tapes

Hello,
some weeks ago I got this really impressive deck (Teac Z 7000) from a colleague, and found the same problem. I fixed it, and the fix is not too complicated. It´s the potentiometers that do fail. All pots are from the same manufacturer (Alps) and construction. The problem is that the wisher is broken away from the holding plastic and will loose contact completely. You can check that with a normal ohmmeter: You´ll find the total resistance over the outer terminals but endless resistance from one of the outer terminals to the middle wisher contact. The values are: 100 kOhm linear for each of the upper left pots (fader,space), 2x22kOhm pos.log. for the lower left pot (phone volume). So, what does a broken wisher at the "fade in" pot do? The Recorder "thinks" that You selected an "endless" fade in time, and the result is : no record level. You can do an easy "quick and dirty" fix just to see if that´s the problem: Hold- or better solder- a say 47kOhm resistor in parallel to the conducted potentiometer terminals and try to record.
4 of 5 pots have been defective in my deck, and I´ve replaced them with standard types from my local electronic supplier (Conrad electronic, has a shop in Frankfurt/Main). Well, the new parts didn´t fit perfectly, I used a file to get them in (not visible from outside). Also I lost the possibility of pushing the knobs in and out, but that is not a really problem.
I assume this fix might also help owners of the Teac Z-6000 and Z-5000, which- most probably- use the same type of potentiometers.

Can I connect my peavey 600b amp to aux or to my existing hifi


If you connect the Main 1/4" out on the front to you HiFi aux input it should work. You will need to play with the volume controls to set the proper level so as not to overload the aux buss. The XR-600B manual is here-

My teac recorder model # cd-rw890 keeps flashing "reading" and will not let me operate the cd drive


How long have you had you CD recorder?
How many CDs have you burned on it?
The reason for asking is, it sounds like the laser has
failed or is failing to the point of not recognizing the
presence of a disc in the tray. Does it do this with any
disc you put in the tray. Blanks & pre recorded CDs?
A minimum amount of light must bounce back from the
surface of the disc or the unit thinks the tray is empty.
If the laser has become very weak (or died) the player
doen't know any better and thinks "no disc".
The "reading" message just indicates it hasn't passed
the stage where it has detected a disc, yet.
The first step is to run a laser cleaning disc in the player
on the off-chance the lens is dusty and that's the problem.
If you don't have one (you should) they're cheap enough
and available everywhere. If cleaning doesn't help, you
will be looking for a new laser assembly for your unit.
Be careful how much you pay for one. New 890s can be
had from Full Compass for under $200.00 and would be
a smarter move than repairing a tired one!

I have a peavey 8600. will it run a pair of 600w 4ohm cerwin vegas?


Hello,

This is the amp capacity, 600W @4 Ohm, so you just have to drive them below full power to avoid excessive distortion, but certainly you will play a bit loud.

Can copy from analog sources, but can't copy from digital source, eventhough the signal is monitored. The display says "can't copy".


Media
The unit requires Digital Audio CD-R or CD-RW media for
recording. Computer CD-R or CD-RW discs do not work with
this unit.

Serial Copy Management System
This unit is in compliance with the Serial Copy Management
System standard. This standard has been established to
restrict digital-to-digital copying to only the first generation.
The basic rules governing this system are as follows:
Rule 1
A digital recording is possible from a digital source such as a
CD, DAT or MD onto a recordable CD-R, CD-RW, MD or DAT
through a digital input connection. However, further digital
to- digital recording is prohibited for the second and later
generations.
Rule 2
When an analog source such as an analog disc or FM
broadcast is digitally recorded by using a CD-R, CD-RW, MD
or DAT, this recorded source can be digitally recorded on
another CD-R, CD-RW, MD or DAT. However, further digital
copying is prohibited.

My CD-RW890 has a stuck drawer with a disk in it. Can I open it manually?


Carefully look at the door area and you will see a small hole about the size of a paper clip wire. Straighten a paper clip and poke it into the hole. You are look for resistance, push on it and the drawer will open. If a CD is in there crooked, you may have trouble getting it out.
I do this for fun & feedback, not $$$

If I had the user manual for this product, I'm sure I could solve it right away. Have every thing connected correctly.By the waym the product is a Teac RW D250 CD/DVD recorder. A question, is it possible...


The TEAC site seems impenetrable as far as just asking for a certain model number but you could give it a try. As a customer you could also complain that it isn't as straightforward as it should be.

I have the peavey xr 8600 and i wanna know how to connect an additional non powerd mixer to it ( i wanna use the peavey as an amp??


That's easily done. Simply connect the left(or right) output of your mixer to one of the channels on the peavey. Use any line input. Since the peavey is a mono system, there's no need sending a stereo mix to it.

How do you raise the recording level on a teac rw d200? Im recording into the recorder from another deck and when i playback its so low you can barely hear it


I have the same problem. Are you copying an analog source? (tape?) Even though the "0 db" level is activated, (button on upper right on front panel) the level rises to -12...max. I suspect the auto-level is preset at the factory? Even with an EQ boost there is no level increase. Drives me nuts! Must have to recalibrate it; but I've no idea how...
