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

just recently purchased a DP-01FX/CD. I do have experience with a
4-track casete recocrder. This board does not display the demo song
loaded into the memory. However there are some not really titles but
numbers in that menu. Following the manual step by step I loadad a
song,it says its done.says to push play..........nothing except some
very faint white noise. All my levels are up and I have followed
diections to the tee without succes.
Any tips will be
Thanks in adxance,

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.
