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.

Trying to import wave file from computer to dp-01. is there a fils size limitation?


Hello,
This system uses the FAT partition table so your WAV file can not be larger then about 4GB. Also I believe the WAV file must be in the format of 44.1Khz 16bit mono. If it's not you will have to convert it to that before you can import. Audacity is a nice free program that can do that for you.

From iTunes, I have converted the m4a track to WAV and then copied that over to my Tascam DP-02CF via the USB connection. When I go to import the track it says "Import file not found". What am I doing...


Your wave file is probably in stereo and you need to change it to mono. I use the free Audacity program to do this.

Once you have uploaded your wave file into audacity on the left side click on the down arrow which will bring up several options, click on the 'split stereo track' option. Then delete one of the tracks. You can then export the file as a wav file, you might want to rename with mono in your name so you don't write it over your previous stereo file. You can then import the file into your DP-02

What do I do when importing wave files from my computer and then it says "IMPORT FILE NOT FOUND"? What do I do next?


Just got mine to work today. First of all, you must have a mono WAV file. I used AVS Audio Converter 6.1 to convert my stereo WAV file to mono. I used the PCM codec, Channels set to 1/0 - mono, and the bit rate automatically was set to 705 kbps. No other format would work for me. I figured it out by exporting a file to see what its specs were. The bitrate must be 705 (which is half of the normal stereo 1411 kbps). Hope this helps anyone else with a DP-02.

Dp-o2 wont Import wav files from my pc


For wav files to be imported to the DP2 have to be 'mono' wav files. The DP-02 won't even show stereo waves in the fat area. So make sure you are converting any stereo wav files into mono first. That's usually the problem. They should also be 44.1 khz sampling frequency and 16 bit (I believe the DP-02 will accept a 24-bit wav, but the file will be truncated rather than dithered down to 16 bit while importing which may not be ideal for quality).

Hope this helps,

Problem importing files to Tascam DP02-cf


They don't mention in the manual that in addition to being 44.4khz, 16bit, mono, the wav file also has to be at a bit rate of 705kbps. Using Audacity (freeware) you can convert most any audio file into the necessary wav format for the DP-02cf to use.

Load imported songs on tascam dp02 cf


Make sure you have the song loaded first. In this case it sounds like you are importing into a new song, so make sure that you have a new song created and loaded prior to importing.

Then go to the menu by pressing the 'MENU' sutton and from there select 'WAVE' and then 'IMPORT TRACK'. You'll see the list of wav files on the fat partition of the CF media displayed. Select the wav file with your beat track on it (use the DATA DIAL or up/down arrow buttons to highlight the right wav file) and press the 'YES/ENTER' button. You'll be prompted for the track to import into. Select Track01 and press the 'Yes/Enter' button again and the WAV file will be read and inported into track 1.

Please note that the wav file should be a 44.1 kHz, 16-bit and a mono wav before trying to import it. If the beat track was created as a stereo wav you'll have to go into a wav editor like Audacity and resave the file as a mono wav file first. Also for a wav with a bit rate higher than 16-bit, the DP-02 is going to truncate the bits rather than dither and this might effect quality adversly so you might want to make sure that the file is properly saved as 16-bit prior to attempting an import to avoid this.

Hope this helps.

Tascam DP-02CF: How to transfer files to my computer?


Hi,

You can't see the fat partition from within the DP-02. It's there, but only your PC will be able to read the contents of the fat partition when you have the USB 'opened' on the DP-02. The manual states that if your CF card is less than 5 Gb in size than you will only see/be able to select one partition. The default CF card that comes with the DP-02CF is only 1 Gb.

If you've created a backup or exported your wav files properly and everything is working ok with the CF, then you should be able to see backup or wav files showing up in the fat partition while connected to the PC. Even if nothing is backed up or exported you should still see the directory structure from your PC with the three folders, BACKUP, WAVE and UTILITY. As you are not even seeing these directories, what may have happened is that the fat partition had become corrupted or these folders had gotten erased.

I would have thought that reformatting the FAT partition would have fixed this problem however and that the DP02-CF would automatically recreate the required directories on the CF media after a reformat. The manual is unclear on this however.

So a couple of things you could try:

1. You describe opening the USB connection as 'push the USB button and then hit enter'. I was assuming you meant that you were selecting 'usb' from the menu and then pressing the 'enter' button to open the usb connection. You may wish to verify that the usb connection is being opened properly first.

2. If the connection is opening ok, and after a reformat you still aren't seeing any folders in the fat partition while connected to your PC with the usb open, you might wish to try to recreating those directories in the FAT partition yourself. While accessing the FAT partition (DP-02CF's removable drive) from the PC create the three directories exactly as named in the manual (WAVE, BACKUP, UTILITY). If that works, disconnect from the PC, try exporting a track or backing up a song again, and reconnect to the PC to see if you can see/access those files now.

Best of luck.

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.

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).

Can't import song from PC to DP-02 Unit and the Manual STINKS!!!!!


You shouldn't have to do any formatting. If you copied a wav file onto the DP-02 while connected with the USB and with the USB connection open, then you were already accessing the fat partition. One thing to be aware of is that the DP-02 only works with mono wav files. So if the wav file from you PC is being saved as a stereo wav (which is the default for most programs) then you'll have to specify mono instead. The DP-02 only works in 16 bit as well so on your PC you should be saving and wav files you wish to import as 16 bit, 44.lkHz mono wav files). That should be about it.

Hope this helps.
