Computer to FAT patition to DP01

Having trouble exporting from my computer to DP01. Computer shows that the files are in Wave or Backup section of FAT partition. DP01 doesn't read them and so I can't select and restore them. I use Cakewalk to compose on my computer and save as audio in the correct format for DP01 - 16bit, 44.1kHz with .wav extension. My DP01FX/CD cannot read these files from a cd either. there must be something I'm doing wrong in saving the files but cannot find out what it is. Can anyone help?

Re: computer to FAT patition to DP01

The DP01 needs wav files to be in mono in order to import them. Make sure you're not trying to import stereo wav files.

Cant transfer the master from tascam to computer

I'm assuming this is a Tascam recorder you're refurring to. What model is it, and what operating system are you using on your computer. First off, don't connect the usb cable to the computer until your Tascam Recorder in in USB Mode. I have the Tascam DP-01. With it, after making the master recording, make sure the master light is off, and not flashing. In the menu under WAVE, select Export Master and press enter. If anything is running, or the master light is lit, you will get an error. After the song is saved to the FAT partition, select DISK in the menu and scroll down to USB Open/Close and press YES/Enter. You'll be asked if you are sure. press Enter/Yes again to go into USB mode. Now plug in the USB cable. Use Windows Explorer, or what ever file navigation program is on your computer. (Not Internet exploere, but windows exploere.) Your Tascam will be seen as Removable Media when viewed from your computer. I have a DP-01, and it shows on my computer as DP-01. You'll find a few folders viewable on your recorder. One of them is called WAVE. You'll find your Exported Master in this folder. Copy it to a folder on your computer. When finished, if you're using windows, then use the Safely Remove Media function in the system tray where the clock is to disconnect from the Tascam safely. Then unplug the USB cable and press NO/Exit on your Tascam recorder to exit USB mode. I hope this helps. Have a wonderful day.

How do I ready tracks on the Tascam DP01 to put them on the computer? I can't figure out how to get them into the wave folder. I don't have a manual

You can download a manual here:

You need to first turn the USB port on in the DP01 disk menu and it then will appear as another drive on your computer. Just look in the WAV folder for your recordings.

Can't Get My Music Off My Tascam. I have a DP-01 portastudio and it has a usb connection but it's not being recognized by my computer. At first it just wasn't compatible with Vista now I have windows xp...

How to export your recorded tracks to WAV:
- Activate the Menu
- Scroll down to WAVE
- Press the right cursor key
- Go to Export Track
- Select the tracks using the Insert and cursor up and/or down keys
- Press Yes/Enter
- When the DP-01 is done repeat pressing Exit until the menu is closed.

Tascam USB mode:
- Press Menu
- Go to Disk
- Scroll down to USB OPN/CLS
- Press Yes/Enter
- Press Enter again to execute
- Press Yes/Enter again for the "Are you sure?" message

Now you will be in USB mode and you will be able to access the DP-01's hard drive and download the exported WAVE file(s).

Remember: the DP-01 will stay in USB mode until you remove the deviceusing the Safely Remove Hardware option in Vista and then press Exit onthe Tascam!

Failure to read WAVE file when trying to import a track.

Wav files need to be in mono to be imported into the dp-01. Fruity Loops and a most other programs by default save wav files in stereo. You'll need to save the files again as mono wav files before attempting to import them into the dp-01.

I don't believe any software comes with the DP-01.  After you record your tracks, you have to "export" them to your FAT drive.  Once they are on your FAT drive, you will be able to see them using Windows Explorer.  Your Tascam shows up as a removable disk.  Simply open the drive and you will see the available folders.  The WAV folder will contain your exported .WAV files and you can drag&drop from there.

If you don't have the manual, you can find it online.  It's free!
