Like most home recorders the minidisc will not let you make digital copies of a digital original. The idea is to prevent piracy of copyrighted material.

Unfortunately, that includes digital tracks you yourself made,

Just go through the analog inputs. It will sound fine.

PS - professional minidisc recorders will let you record digitally, but they are expensive.

SOURCE: Electronic drum kit, with USB out, problem

Sounds to me like you have the midi tracks outputting to the microsoft midi mapper or wavetable synth, which is built into the sound chip in your pc, and that this is conflicting with the mobilepre sound card - midi is just data, no audio, needs to drive some kind of synth. what you want to do is disable your internal sound card thru device manager, then just use the m-audio mobile pre as the input/output sound card in ASIO mode - you'll need to monitor via the headphone jack on the mobile pre or plug speakers into the line outs on the interface.

Then do tutorial 8 (in help files) on using soft synths - INSERT>SOFTSYNTHs creates a midi track and an audio track in a track folder.

Good luck.

The dude.

the midi keyboard may be seen as a remote controller.

SOURCE: tascam 144 sony acid pro 6 no sound from midi track

It sounds like you may be confused on what the MIDI part actually does. MIDI records your performance, not your sound. Then you assign and play back the recorded performance to either a virtual instrument (in which case you should here sound from your computer) or to a real physical MIDI capable instrument (in which case you would here the sound coming from that real instrument instead of the computer).
The ends of the MIDI cables themselves are identical, not IN or OUT.

SOURCE: triton Le

when you are setting your midi track on the mpc are you changing to 2A-Device02 for the 2nd track? 3A-Device02 would be the 3rd track and so on. Let me know if that helps. you should make a new track for each instrument you record from the triton to the mpc, helps when dumping.

Why doesn't it record to md?


You can't make a copy of a copy of a digitally recorded MiniDisc, so make sure that isn't what's happening- if so, it usually says "Din Unlock" and you can't record. I think when I record from one deck to the other digitally, I have set the recording deck to "REC", then I hit 'play' on both decks at the same time. Using the digital input, it should automatically set your track marks. You cannot make a digital copy of this MiniDisc, BUT you can make an Analog copy. Let me know if you need more info.

Din unlock c71


the input source you have selected is not working. If digital it might be a copy guarded source which the deck cannot read...

If you get fancier and are trying to record the optical output from a newer device like a 5.1 or 7.1 receiver although the signal will go through the MD deck cannot decode the advanced optical signal. There are adaptor boxes on eBay which decode 5.1 & 7.1 optical signals to an optical signal the older MD can read and record from.

Try selecting another source like analog RCA. The digital stuff I mentioned applies to digital RCA and Optical Cables like toslink.

Jd520 error read c71


DIN unlock is related to a digital clock being missing so the unit is looking for a digital input of some kind. Since your laptop is putting out analog change the MD input to analog and of course use the correct inputs. A 1/8" or 3.5mm audio cable may fit into an optical port but it will never work in that way.

Din unlock? how do i get rid of it ?


Several problems here,
Overall the deck is not getting a signal from the input, so you need your input selector set to one which is active...
However, in some cases a copyguard system will prevent your recording from a second generation digital copy and depending on your deck give the DIN unlock statement.
In other rare instances the deck cannot handle the conversion rate from a DAT, in others if your are trying to record from a Dolby Surround sound source on an optical input, the older MD deck cannot decode Dolby 5.1 or 7.1 even when it is getting the digital signal, in that instance you need to get a digital convesion box on ebay which kicks down the 5.1 or 7.1 dolby to something the older MD deck can understand even though it is getting the optical signal.
I hope I addressed all of the options...

Why i am seeing DIN UNLOCK


If you are recording from a DIGITAL input like the OPTICAL or DIGITAL COAXIAL and their is no signal, or if it is a 'non-copyable' copy of a digital copy (from a mini-disc or protected audio CD-R) you will see this. You need to record using ANALOG inputs, then you won't have this DIN UNLOCK problem using analog. Double check your digital connections and make sure your digital source is set to 'play' and see if the DIN Unlock goes off. Otherwise, use analog reocrding only.

Won't record...says din lock


I'd say you have the digital input selected. The player does not see a digital signal and gives such message.
Select the analog input and you should be able to record.

Hope this helps.

Din unlock means 'digital input is unlocked' meaning it is not receiving a signal on the **digita**l input you have selected. ( eg optical or single co-axial digital from another cd player etc) Check your connections and re-select the source using the front panel until you select the one you want. What are you recording from?
