DP-01FX/CD sound quality of CDs

Hi

I'm new to recording but have had no trouble using the DP-01FX/CD, I am however having trouble with the sound quality of the finished CD.
All sounds OK till I try to play back on another CD player, the volume level of the play back unit needs to be at max for the CD to be audible.

I have tried different manufacturers CDs and different CD players but this makes no difference whatsoever.

Can anyone help?

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.

DP-01FX/CD Problem


nslo, tell him to try replacing the power supply first, power supplys burn up ALL the time, as long as the plug fits and it has a rating of equal or greater amperage, same voltage, equal to or greater watts then it will work. Those variable voltage multi plug ones they sell at k-mart work but I've never had one that lasted long.

Mastering the songs


You’re trying to master with the OUT point at the zero position.
Set the OUT point and try again.

Check chapter “IN and OUT marks” on page 29 of your manual if you don't know how to set the 'in' and 'out' marks.

Alternatively you could load your stereo instrumental track into a wav editor, then export each stereo track as a separate mono wav file which you can transfer via usb into you DP-01 and then on you DP-01 import those wav files into two separate tracks which you can pan hard left and hard right so they are in stereo.
