Sound in one ear only

My problem is that when i'm recording guitar, it possibly would be the same for vocals as well, but I haven't gotten that far yet, that when i try to play back the recording, the sound is only coming through one headphone, when i record the guitar comes through both headphones absolutely fine, how can i fix this?
Thanks.

The Fastrack only has one audio input signal to the PC. You'll need to set your recording software to mono, then you can add stereo fx in your audio software.

    What type of microphone is it?

    Condenser mics need to have some sort of power supply to work. This is usually provided to a 9V battery inside the mic or 'phantom power' which is sent up the mic cable from the mixing desk.

I am trying to record in multi track mode-want to know how to record for example vocals on track one then without erasing the vocals add for example harmony or guitar so i get two things on one track. At...


How multitrack recording works is assigning each recording to a different track. A way around this is to record the vocals to track one, then your harmony to track two. Save that as a single recording, or mixdown, then open that saved mixdown to track one. You may need to be connected to a computer to do this.

I use the same technique when using Cool Edit Pro (outdated, yes, but I've been using it for 4 years, and I know most of the ins and outs), especially on the guitar tracks, where for studio sound, you've gotta use 4 total tracks. Putting two tracks together frees up your processor, and uses less in the way of effects, as well.


Hope that helps!

Hi. I am using the Tascam 2488Mkii in a very simple set up. I love the sound of the single effect reverb. I just want to record my vocal and accoustic with that effect (recording via microphone)....


If you own a small practice guitar amplifier with reverb, mic the amplifier and hook your guitar and microphone into it and run it into the board. You will get a better sound

Cannot record both mic and electric guitar in daw


Disagree with previous post. The GTrack is designed to record vocals and a mono insrtument at the same time. That's its main selling point. It should also allow monitoring of both the vocals and guitar alongside the playback from the computer. In your computer's Control Panel, go to sound preferences, select the usb microphone and click on advanced tab. It is likely yours is set up to record 1 channel at CD quality - this is how many ship for some reason. Set it to 2 Channels CD quality.
In Sonar, set your track input as USB Left for the vocals, and USB Right for your guitar.

Tascam DP-02cf


You've got two inputs on the DP-02 so you can record two sources at once.

Depending on how you want the electric guitar recorded (mic the amp, or direct line in) you can in the first case plug your guitar mic into one of the mic inputs on DP02 and plug your vocal mic into the other mic input. You also have the option of plugging the guitar directly into the DP02 (using the hi-z input - I believe it is labelled 'guitar' or something on the DP02. I any event I believe it's the one on the left). This way you only need one mic for use recording the vocal part.

To avoid any 'bleed' between channels you can use the headphones while recording this way and you'll avoid having the unamplified guitar sound coming through over the vocal mic.

Once you have the mics or guitar and mic plugged into two inputs, you need to assign the inputs to a channel (track) to record on. You do this by pressing the select button for the input and then pressing the select button for the track where you want to record the input. Do this for both inputs so that they are recording on different tracks. Then arm the tracks for recording by pressing the record button for each track and the lighted buttons will flash above each armed track. Then just press play and record and you'll be recording. You can go back and redo it as many times as you like and record over what is there, or preserve a take and assign a new track (or tracks) for another take. You've got 8 to play with.

Hope this helps.

Can not record vocal and guitar at the same time


The monitoring switch should not affect the recording at all. Maybe you have a defective mic?

Does it record from the line input if you set it to Line In mode?

Delayed vocal


If you're recording to an audio program on your computer (e.g., Cubase), there typically is a slight delay in the tracks you record with the first one (such as a slight delay in the vocal when layering over the guitar track). ou can change the delay in the "Preferences" for the audio card in your computer or you can remove the delay manually.. I do the latter. I record using the Audacity 1.3.3. program on a Mac G4. I find that get a 0.3 second delay in tracks layered onto the first track. So, after I record a track, I cut the first 0.3 seconds froom the beginning of the track (I give myself at least 10 seconds of "dead air" at the start. and keep playing the tracks until they're synchronized. Takes a good ear, but really is the best way to synchronize the tracks.
