Use normal recording mode. You can record up to 8 tracks on the same WAV file. the file will be stored on MR8 internal memory card. The file can be exported to a computer using an USB connection or a memory card reader. If you use USB cable you can follow instructions at page 88 on manual below.
Here the full documentation.

    You need to record more tracks onto same file. I think you use Rec/Select to select the tracks to be recorded Then record and play at the same time to start recording from multiple tracks.


    There is more than one way to record tracks onto same file.



    I will double check on manual to find exact procedures.

    Also you must be in input monitor mode to select tracks as inputs, otherwise they will be send on output in repro monitor mode.

    Hi,


    If you want to record all Wav files created into a single file, you need to create a song. A song is a file enclosing up to 9 tracks.
    See page 86 on manual and follow procedure to convert the single Wav files onto a song. Then export the song into computer.

    Start from scrap. Use the saved WAV files as tracks for the songs. Do create song first and chose a name. Then import tracks into song. Once the song is ready with all tracks inside , use the USB connection to export the song into a single Wav file on PC. Tracks cannot be merged on memory card, you can only use them into a song.

If he had it done by a person who knows what he is doing he most likely used a 1/2 track tape recording device. These are different than 1/4 track unit as they are used professionally an for mastering. You would need to find a 1/2 track type deck to play the tape back- they are made by Tascam, Otari, Studer, Pioneer, Sony and other lesser brands.

you have to make sure the song tracks(1 &2 ) are not armed. then you can assign your vocal to any of the other tracks. after you do this , make sure you arm the track. you should be able to hear your mike.

How multitrack recording works is assigning each recording to a different track. A way around this is to record the vocals to track one, then your harmony to track two. Save that as a single recording, or mixdown, then open that saved mixdown to track one. You may need to be connected to a computer to do this.

I use the same technique when using Cool Edit Pro (outdated, yes, but I've been using it for 4 years, and I know most of the ins and outs), especially on the guitar tracks, where for studio sound, you've gotta use 4 total tracks. Putting two tracks together frees up your processor, and uses less in the way of effects, as well.


Hope that helps!

Cannot record both mic and electric guitar in daw


Disagree with previous post. The GTrack is designed to record vocals and a mono insrtument at the same time. That's its main selling point. It should also allow monitoring of both the vocals and guitar alongside the playback from the computer. In your computer's Control Panel, go to sound preferences, select the usb microphone and click on advanced tab. It is likely yours is set up to record 1 channel at CD quality - this is how many ship for some reason. Set it to 2 Channels CD quality.
In Sonar, set your track input as USB Left for the vocals, and USB Right for your guitar.

You've got two inputs on the DP-02 so you can record two sources at once.

Depending on how you want the electric guitar recorded (mic the amp, or direct line in) you can in the first case plug your guitar mic into one of the mic inputs on DP02 and plug your vocal mic into the other mic input. You also have the option of plugging the guitar directly into the DP02 (using the hi-z input - I believe it is labelled 'guitar' or something on the DP02. I any event I believe it's the one on the left). This way you only need one mic for use recording the vocal part.

To avoid any 'bleed' between channels you can use the headphones while recording this way and you'll avoid having the unamplified guitar sound coming through over the vocal mic.

Once you have the mics or guitar and mic plugged into two inputs, you need to assign the inputs to a channel (track) to record on. You do this by pressing the select button for the input and then pressing the select button for the track where you want to record the input. Do this for both inputs so that they are recording on different tracks. Then arm the tracks for recording by pressing the record button for each track and the lighted buttons will flash above each armed track. Then just press play and record and you'll be recording. You can go back and redo it as many times as you like and record over what is there, or preserve a take and assign a new track (or tracks) for another take. You've got 8 to play with.

Hope this helps.

Using the effects on the 2488 mk 11 for vocals


Use a single effect vice a multi effect and assign it to the channel vice the input and that should get you going. I'm sure you could just set the effect to the input and not the channel but this works for me. If your tracking your instruments/tracks to different channels, and you should be, then assigining the effect to the channel wont hurt you.

Can not record vocal and guitar at the same time


The monitoring switch should not affect the recording at all. Maybe you have a defective mic?

Does it record from the line input if you set it to Line In mode?
