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.

How do i convert my itunes songs(mp3 format) to the wav format


I;m ahving this same problem myself. After spending the last six months recording my album and remixing again and again, I finally registered with CDbaby and their upload page is not reading my songs from my usb storage card. Never had this problem before. Every mix Ive burned down and added to the media player on my main computer, converted to the flash drive numerous times and was always able to send songs to friends via email, and onto my myspace. But for some reason CDbaby wont read my songs. ??? and the media player on my mini laptop won't sync from te flaash card either. I dont know what the hell the problem is, but numerous aggravcasions over thge last 6 months have stemmed from mastering issues on the Tascam. An ex rooommate had sonic foundry which I must say produced better sound results and less conversion issues

I have a DP2 Tascam 8 track recorder. Can I come out of my 16 channel mixer into my recorder and record my whole band?


The Tascam DP-02 can only record two tracks at a time.

You will have to mix "on-the-fly" and record the master out, or record each instrument seperately, and just record the drums as a stereo mix.

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.

Low volume on finalized songs.


There's not really any magic fix to this as far as I'm aware. I usually don't burn CD's from my Tascam directly, but export the mix to the PC and do final touches and burn from there. I don't typically normalize though and the levels are what has come out of the Tascam. I do however use compression on many of the tracks (and sometimes on the whole mix) before exporting which will squash the peaks and lows together and thus give you an overall higher volume with your level meters peaking in the normal place you're used to.

There are other factors like EQ without which a mix can sound too loud and perhaps cause you to lower the levels when really things in the mix just need to be allowed to sit in different EQ bands.

Compression is the key though. Unfortunately even well recorded instruments and vocals naturally contain wide fluxuation in terms of lows and highs and these need to be smoothed out in order to obtain anywhere near the volume of a commercial CD. With compression alone the result may still fall short as the use of pro quality mastering effects can really make a world of difference to overall percieved volume as well.

Hope this helped

Timing of Mastering and burning final copy to CD


Hi,

I don't use my Tascam to create CDs for exactly the reasons you are asking about. I do a bounce mix to a couple of tracks and then export via usb to a PC for finalizing and CD creation there.

To answer your questions, you do always need to create a master first for each sermon on the DP-02 before you can burn it to a CD. You also have to finalize the CD to play it on other players.

Mastering as well occurs in real time, so it does take 60 minutes to create a master for a 60 minute recording.

As I don't burn from my Tascam, I didn't realize the burn time was so long though. I would have expected that to be faster for sure. I know my old 2488 MkI is supposed to burn at 4x and I believe the MkII burns at 8x. The DP-02 is newer than both and I would assume it would burn even faster.

Anyway, as I said you might wish to go the PC route. That way you can export the tracks without having to master them and burn them from the PC to CD at up to 40x (depending on the speed of your PC's burner).

Hope this helps.

DP-01FX/CD


Unfortunately it's pretty much impossible to get a recording to sound like anything produced commercially these days without using lots of compression. Your burned CD problems might be the result of a faulty burner on your DP01-FX/CD. I have a 2488 and I still export all my mastered songs as wav files and burn them onto disc using my PC just because of the flexibility on the PC and you can control settings better which can cause disc burning problems (not to mention that the burner is newer and faster on my PC).

If you don't want to work on a PC you could look into replacing the burner in your Tascam. It is similar to replacing a PC's burner and the either the Tascam site and/or the Tascam Forum should be able to provide you with the specs and a list of compatible CD burners.

To get the final product to sound louder you could invest in an external compressor (a good used one should run you less than $100). You'll have to use the DP01's send loops to route a bounce of the stereo mix out to the compressor and then route the result back into the DP01 inputs and record on a couple of free tracks.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

I record using a pre recorded sound track, no problem there, then I recorded the voice.. Now how do I get to master this. IT tells me the track is too short and won't let me go into the Master mode. And...


how long is the track you are trying to master i believe it has to be over 30 seconds if your just sampling 8 or so seconds it wont work i know on some models its over a minute to be able to master mix a track.


thanks,

Nate

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.
