A) Does the light on the Record button light up when you press record?
B) I don't know the unit well enough, but if the hard drive is full, it probably won't allow you to record. Although, I suspect it would give you an error code of some sort in the display.
C) Does it have the same "Tactile" feel as the rest of the buttons? That is - does the button feel as though its working and engaging?

Friends say When i speak sounds like Static any 1 know how to change setting or find it in computer. Im using Satellite Fusion


The external microphone itself could be the culprit, or its connection to the 3.5mm port could be flaky. To test the theory do this:

1 Connect an external microphone to the computer.

2 Click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder.

3 Click the Record button and speak normally into the microphone.

>>>> WIGGLE THE CONNECTION AT THE LAPTOP OR FLEX THE MIC CABLE WHILE RECORDING. Maybe even narrate what you are doing while you record your voice. "Flexing cable near mic, now near plug..." <<<<

NOTE: You can only record 60 seconds at a time.

4 When you have finished recording, click the Stop button.

5 To hear what you just recorded, click the Play button.
6 To save the file, select Save from the File menu.

>>>> If you hear crackling in the playback that correlates with your handling of the cable then bad seating or a bad cable are the problem. <<<<


Adjusting recording quality

The better the quality of the recording, the more disk space the sound file requires. Experiment to find a balance that fits your needs.

1 Open Sound Recorder, if necessary (click Start, point to All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, then click Sound Recorder).

2 In the Sound Recorder window, click Edit, then click Audio Properties.

3 In the Audio Properties window, adjust the Sound Playback quality and volume, and the Sound Recording volume.

4 Click OK.


Your new settings take effect the next time you record.

DP-01 Wont Record


You may need to assign one of the inputs (a or b) to the track you want to record to. Do this by first pressing the 'Assign A' or 'Assign B' (if you are lining in a guitar to the Hi-Z input then you'll be using 'Assign A') and then press the record/select button for the track to assign. After doing this you'll arm your track for recording and proceed to record.

Hope this helps.

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.

It happens all the time to me. Only solution is to save constantly as you record because once it freezes up and says not stopped you can only unplug and plug back in then turn power on. You will lose what you were recording but nothing will be lost that you have saved.

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.

Don't know how to actually record


To record you need to first assign your input to a track, then arm the track for recording, and then press play + record at the same time.

1. So you would patch you mixer's output into an input on your DP01 (say input A). You can run some audio to set the level with the input level knob (located next to input A on the front panel).

2. Then to assign that input to a track simply press and hold the 'input A' button and then press the 'rec' button of the track you with to record on. The 'rec' button will flash rapidly to indicate that the input is assigned to the track.

(To assign the input to a different track you have to clear the input assignment from the first track and assign the input to a new track. To clear an assignment press the input assign key, A in this case, and the track it's assigned to will flash its 'rec' button. Hold down the input assign key and then press the flashing 'rec' button. The button will stop flashing and the input can then be assigned to another track by following step 2 again).

3. Next, to arm the track for recording simply press the 'rec' button for that track. The 'rec' button with flash slowly.

4. To begin recording press play + record together in the transport section and the 'rec' light for the armed track will stop flashing and light steadily. Press 'stop' to end recording.

This should get you started. The operation of the DP01 is actually pretty intuitive once you've gone through it a couple of times (which is one of the real strengths of the unit). You'll be multitracking like an expert in no time.

Cheers,

Just bought a DP-02 w/40gb hard drive


Hi,

You'll first need to find some aux audio out jacks on your karaoke machine. You might need an adapter, but the basic idea will be to connect the aux out from the karaoke machine to an input on your Tascam DP-02.

Then on the DP-02 you need to assign whatever input your plugged into to one of the 8 tracks. Let's say you're using the left input (input A) and want to put the karaoke music on track 1. You'll press the 'Assign A' button on the DP-02 and while holding it then press the 'Rec' button of track 1. The 'Rec' button will flash rapidly to show its been assigned. (for reference: assigning an input is better described on page 23 of the manual). Then you'll want to arm track 1 to record. Press the 'rec' button for track 1 and it will start to flash slowly to show it has been armed for recording. Now you are ready to start recording. On the DP-02 press the large round play and record buttons on the lower right together to start recording and start your karioke machine playing. When the song is done press stop on the DP-02.

Now to record your vocals you'll need your mic to be plugged in (lets' say it's in input B). You'll need to assign this input to a free track (track 2). Press the 'Assign B' button and while holding it press the 'Rec' button for track 2 (rec button will flash rapidly). Then you'll want to un-arm track 1 and arm track 2 for recording. To do this press the 'rec' button for track 1 so that the light goes off and then press the 'rec' button for track 2 so that it flashes slowly.

So now when you press play and record together to record, you'll hear track 1 playing (the karaoke track you recorded earlier) and you'll be recording vox on track 2. Of course you'll also be recording whatever you hear in the room onto track 2 along with your singing, so in order to get a clean recording there (prevent bleed) you'll want to plug some headphones into the DP-02 and listen to those as you record.

That's pretty much all there is to it. Some variations if you wish to record the karioke in stereo vs mono (I gave you the instructions for mono here), and you may need to turn on phantom power if you have a non-powered mic, but the idea is basically the same.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

It's supposed to only record on the left side. When it's in "INST/MIC" mode the left channel has your mic on it and the right channel has your instrument, so you can mix them separately. Just configure your recording software to put the left channel on one track and the right channel on another track.
