Tascam stopped while I was recording and NO FREE DISC came on the screen

It sounds like your hardrive or other media storage on you multitracker is full. You must have done alot of recording. Go to your manual and read about how to transfer your work to your computer. It should be USB transfer. Or burn your files to disc if your unit has a burner. If you beileve this message is an error message of some kind and your multitracker is still under warranty, call tascam immediately. I had a problem with a unit like yours and it took a long time and calling them til they actually sent me a new one. Good Luck

Timing of Mastering and burning final copy to CD


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.

Replace Tascam DP-01FX/CD -- the CD R/W won't work

I don't think there is a problem with your CD writer.  You have not inserted the type of disc your write drive requires.  You must use a BLANK "AUDIO CD-R".   Check your instruction manual concerning the type of disc required.  Data CD-R's will not work in this type of drive.  if the disc has "DATA CD-R" or "700"mb or "800mb" printed on it it will not work.  audio CD-R's are not as common and are a bit more costly.   They are the only type of disc that will RECORD in your drive.  Regular audio CDs should play in your drive.  I hope this solution will work for you and I wish you every success!

Unfortunately it's pretty much impossible to get a recording to sound like anything produced commercially these days without using lots of compression. Your burned CD problems might be the result of a faulty burner on your DP01-FX/CD. I have a 2488 and I still export all my mastered songs as wav files and burn them onto disc using my PC just because of the flexibility on the PC and you can control settings better which can cause disc burning problems (not to mention that the burner is newer and faster on my PC).

If you don't want to work on a PC you could look into replacing the burner in your Tascam. It is similar to replacing a PC's burner and the either the Tascam site and/or the Tascam Forum should be able to provide you with the specs and a list of compatible CD burners.

To get the final product to sound louder you could invest in an external compressor (a good used one should run you less than $100). You'll have to use the DP01's send loops to route a bounce of the stereo mix out to the compressor and then route the result back into the DP01 inputs and record on a couple of free tracks.

Hope this helps.

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.

Tascam DP-01 FX/CD Digital Portastudio

Here's a link to a forum where someone else encountered the same error. Seems it was due to running out of disc space in that instance.

Tascam DP01 CD/FX

This is basically an error message which indicates that the Tascam timed out while waiting for the drive to spin up. Usually an issue with the drive motor not getting the correct amount of power.

Primary suspect is usually the power adapter.
