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

Failure to read WAVE file when trying to import a track.

My problem is whenever I try to import a wave file from my pc to my dp-01, my dp-01 never seems to be able to read it. Basically, I copy the wave file from my pc to the WAVE directory of my dp-01 with the .wav extension before closing my dp-01 in the correct manner. I then press MENU and select the WAVE menu and then select IMPORT TRACK before pressing the > button. It then comes up with a message telling me that there are no tracks to be imported, even though when I OPEN my dp-01 back up, my pc tells me that the wave file is there and ready to be imported. Has anyone else experienced this problem and, if so, has anyone ever been able to overcome it. Your help and expertise would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou.

Wav files need to be in mono to be imported into the dp-01. Fruity Loops and a most other programs by default save wav files in stereo. You'll need to save the files again as mono wav files before attempting to import them into the dp-01.

Cheers.

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.

Need help DP-01 basic hook up to synthesizer


Midi on the DP-01 is only for time synching with another device, synth, etc. To hear your synth through the DP-01 run a 1/4" patch cord from the audio outs (R and L) on your synth into the A and B inputs of your DP-01. Then assign the inputs to tracks and arm them for recording. You should then be able to hear your synth playing out of whatever you are using to monitor you DP-01 (headphones, stereo or powered monitors). To record the synth output simply press play and record together on the tascam.

Tascam DP-02 cd player...


Hi,

You cannot rip a CD directly into the DP-02 using the unit's CD drive.

Your choices for doing what you want are:

1.) Rip the CD into .wav files onto your PC using ripper of your choice. Then you'll have to edit the resulting .wav file using a program like 'Audacity' (which is a free one) and convert the stereo wav files into 2 mono wav files. You'll have to save the mono files with dos 8.3 filenames and then import them into the DP02 using the instructions for importing wav files in the manual. To preserve the stereo, import each mono wav file to a separate adjacent track on the DP02 and then pan one left and one right.

2.) You could play the CD on a stereo and connect the stereo outs to the two inputs on the DP02 to record the CD track. You'll need patch cords which are RCA (mini phono 1/8" jack) to regular phono (1/4") to do this.

Cheers,
bd.

Can't Get My Music Off My Tascam. I have a DP-01 portastudio and it has a usb connection but it's not being recognized by my computer. At first it just wasn't compatible with Vista now I have windows xp...


How to export your recorded tracks to WAV:
- Activate the Menu
- Scroll down to WAVE
- Press the right cursor key
- Go to Export Track
- Select the tracks using the Insert and cursor up and/or down keys
- Press Yes/Enter
- When the DP-01 is done repeat pressing Exit until the menu is closed.

Tascam USB mode:
- Press Menu
- Go to Disk
- Scroll down to USB OPN/CLS
- Press Yes/Enter
- Press Enter again to execute
- Press Yes/Enter again for the "Are you sure?" message

Now you will be in USB mode and you will be able to access the DP-01's hard drive and download the exported WAVE file(s).

Remember: the DP-01 will stay in USB mode until you remove the deviceusing the Safely Remove Hardware option in Vista and then press Exit onthe Tascam!

Lot of possibilities.

The DP-01 is like a mixer with built-in recording capabilies. You could plug your tunrntables into your DP-01 inputs, assign the inputs to tracks(channels) on the DP-01, and then output those tracks to two channels on your mixer (which would be connected to your PA.

Alternatively, you could plug the outs from your mixer into the DP-01 either by routing individual channels from the mixer into the DP-01 inputs, or outputting the mix into a single track (or into two tracks in stereo on your DP-01). Just assign the DP-01 inputs as usual to the tracks you want to record onto.

Those are just a couple of basic ideas. You could also route a DP-01 track (or the whole mix) back out the DP-01 send loop and through some external processors and then back to tracks on your DP-01, or you could do this through the mixer and then record the final result on the DP-01.

Computer to FAT patition to DP01


The DP01 needs wav files to be in mono in order to import them. Make sure you're not trying to import stereo wav files.

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.
