Hello there sexycat
first things first:
1) check the output you want to use on the tascam, then according, use de correct cable on the PC, usually RCA to mini pin connector, or RCA on sound card ( if appy)
other than this, check weather you can use the tascam with any aditional hardware for your PC. ( on manual)

How do you hook up a Tascam 122 cassette deck to a receiver i tried to hook it up to my Nad 7155 receiver and no sound what am i doing wrong please help


cassette decks have line OUTPUTS. If it records there may be line inputs. Connect the OUTPUTS to the appropriate INPUTs on ur amp. Select the correct input on the amp. If it doesn't work u will need to verify the amp inputs work and that the tape outputs r active.
If so chg the cables.

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.

TASCAM DP-004 - SD card file access error


Stick the SD card inside your computer, if your computer does not have the hook up for it, Radio shack or Best buy can help you with that. Then you can save the files on your computer, then re-down load them back on your dp 004. But if your card is reading error then maybe you would have problems trying to move them your computer too.

Making Midi Files for Importing to Tascam 2488


Hi,

You should always work in wav format if possible because there is a loss of quality with mp3 which is a compression format in which bits are lost in order to compress the file size.

There are a number of wav editors available which will allow you to load a stereo wav and then save it as a mono wav. The free one I use is called Audacity.

When working with FL or Reason I will sometimes import files to the Tascam, or I will take the outputs from my PCs sound card and line them into the tacams inputs and record them live. I only tend to do this with programs (like synths) where I am using an external midi keyboard and can play live what I want to record.

With basic drum pattern tracks I'll usually create them on the PC, save as wav, convert to mono, and then import to a track on the Tascam.

hope this helps.

How do i hook up my tascam 414 portastudio to my PC??


Assuming you want to keep your recordings at the highest possible quality, wouldn't it also work if you had an outboard component CD recorder? That way you retain the highest resolution at the first analog-digital step and once it's on CD you can rip to your heart's content or run it through the mixer again.

I have a Pioneer Elite PDR-509 that I have used for years. There are several 'professional' decks made by Tascam, Marantz, HHB and others that add the ability to use vanilla CDR's and CDR/W's instead of CDR-Audio and CDR-A-R/W media as mine uses and some can defeat the SCMS codes so you can do digital-digital multiple generation copies. Home audio CD Recorders will only digitally copy a first-generation digital original, unless the source was was made on a PC. Then it's always considered first-generation. The cost of the media isn't that much different these days. A standalone CD Recorder would also let you digitize those LP's and tapes you have hanging around or record Live through your mixer to CD. How about that!!!

There are plenty of them on eBay cheap and I'm still looking for the right one in case mine should ever decide to die. I see 7 pro models right now on eBay. I'd look for one that has Coaxial Digital inputs and outputs as well as Optical ones.

As for hooking up your Tascam, that would depend a lot on what sound processing software and soundcard you have - not my strong suit as I still do everything in the analog domain prior to cutting the CD and then ripping it to MP3 for portability and fast access. The physical hookup would be Line Out to Line In. After that it's all software.

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.

Cd rewritable player recorder tascam cdrw4u


I never had that problems. I have been using it over five years. Does it play commercially made CDs (the ones you bought at the store)? Panel shows track numbers and sound volume? Can you hear it by using a head set (phone volume control turned up? If so, now recording part, do you have input select correct (analog or digital)? Input cable(s) into right connector(s)? When you press "record" button, does it put into "pause" mode? Can you watch the incoming sound levels when it is on "pause" mode? Can you start the recording with remote's fader button or play/pause button on the machine? Good luck.

Software.


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!
