Question about Tascam DP01 All-In-One Recording Package Microphone

1 Answer

Muffled playback When I try to play the demo song, the only way I can hear anything is if I listen through the headphones and all of the faders are maxed out, as well as the level for the mic in the front. What might be the cause of such a muffled playback?

My Tascam Porta 02 records but I cant hear any playback ! What to do to fix ?


Check its headphone out for any sound. Check the cables going to the amplifier. Try another tape for the playback sound.

Sounds like you have a computer sound issue. If the waveform is shown, and the amplitude is sufficient then it should playback audio. Not familiar with Mac but check mute settings, sound card volume, input/output config., audio routing, etc.

When I record and listen to playback, I only hear the left side.


This is normal for recording. Even professionals do the same. What you need is to set your input to mono(either hardware or software), or explore your software look for effects like STEREO to MONO with some delay which I prefer for my recording. I did have a good result. Good Luck

Tascam DP02 - LOW VOLUMES!


Phantom power should only be used with a condenser/ribbon mic. If you're using a dynamic mic (like the one in the photo) you don't need phantom power. Also I run my mics and instruments through a mixer, then into the unit. Also if you're mixing your masters at a low volume, the CD will play at a lower volume. Try mastering at as high a volume as possible, avoid clipping of course. But get it as loud as possible while mastering. Then the master copy should be louder. I have a DP02 and found out it needs decent monitors to mix and master. That's all I've got.

it appears to be recording but is it really?
when you are recording there are two levels you should see moving up and down on the screen. the input volume and the recording volume per track. dont forget to arm the track. tascam has a silly way to arm the track on some of there unit. its combination of buttons. something like hold down the record button and press the track arm button then release both. when youre ready to record press play.

Record, playback problem


Hi Nick,

The fuzz/white noise is a little confusing and it seems to be saying that you are recording something vs trying to record incorrectly and getting nothing at all. Anyway, despite that, I would try going over your recording steps first.

First off make sure your Hi-Z input is not set to the Hi-Z or guitar setting. It is possible your that MicroKorg is overloading the input and distorting. You should however have heard that in the headphones too, so I'm not so sure that's the problem. The next thing to check is to make sure your input is assigned to the track you expect to be recording on. (Press the input's button to check this. The select/record button over the track should flash).

Next make sure your track is armed for recording before you press 'play+record' (Record button above the track should light steady when recording).

Hope this helps.

Sound


No sound during recording ? No sound during playback ? Both ?
Do you have signal levels on the meters at stereo/ main out ? If yes then make sure master fader is at adequate level then check to see if there's a headhone on/ off switch or a headhone volume level  knob, if so then adjust ( be careful not to have the master fader at a high level when you turn on the headphones, it hurts )  If you don't have signal on the stereo/ main out meters or you do and the above steps didn't work then we'll take it from there.

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.
