Question about Tascam Dp-02cf Digital 8-track Recorder

1 Answer

I have a standard DP 02 (non cf) and I want to add vocal tracks to a previously recorded song (tracks 1 and 2) and I don't get any sound from my mic. The mic/line/guitar switch is set to mic/line but the assign button won't let me assign tracks 3 thru 8 and I still don't get any sound. from either of my mics. They work fine with my old 4 track tape machine (Tascam 414 Mk 2) I am becoming very frustrated and getting ready to sell it and forget ever having a career. PS: the manual does not address this problem.

You have to make sure the song tracks(1 &2 ) are not armed. then you can assign your vocal to any of the other tracks. after you do this , make sure you arm the track. you should be able to hear your mike.

SOURCE: mini disc recorder question

Just use the first two tracks, one for left and one for right and use the PAN pots to adjust the stereo positioning. Just run the 'tape out' or 'line out' or 'aux out' of the mixer to the REC "IN" on the MiniDisc recorder; hit "record" then the "play" button to start it. Make sure your input selector switch is on ANALOG and not DIGITAL or OPTICAL. Let me know how it works out for you. Okay? Thanks

SOURCE: How do I split up one song on a Tascam DP-02 into more songs?

Hi, I think the proper way to do this should be to copy and paste a section of the track using in and out points to mark the section you would like to copy on to another track but I have been unable to figure this out! very frustrating! However for now I have managed to do it this way (The long way round but it works) say a track that I have 10 or so songs on, I copy it say 10 times (this takes a long time!) When you copy them they show up as the same title. I then rename the original so that i don't mess about with the original! Then I set in and out points previous to the song I want to get to another track and press cut. I then set in and out points after that song and press cut this leaves you with just that song and it is at the begining of the track because cutting closes up the gap. I save and rename this appropriatly. I then do the same for alll the other songs I want with the other copies.!!!!!! Hope this helps, if you work out how to cut and paste please let me know!

SOURCE: tascam 8 track recorder won't play back recording

You must be missing a step somewhere. I suggest you CAREFULLY read the manual again and follow it step by step. Recording is simple on this unit once you do it a few times and get the procedure correct. Good luck

SOURCE: how do you record on tracks 3-8? i can record only

Hi there,
Yes you can record on the other 6 tracks, but you need to assign them.
If you are having problems assigning them, don't forget that you need to clear the previous assignments (for track 1 and 2 for example) FIRST, before you try and assign to say tracks 3 & 4.

To clear assignments hold down the assign key and the previously assigned tracks should flash. While still holding the assing key, press each one of the flashing channels seperately to un-assign them. Now release the assign key.

I want to record vocal voice trhought mic on psr 9000


You could record short "samples" to be used in building new voices, however, it does NOT appear that you can record a vocal song with the PSR9000. The Tyros II and III have the capability to record vocals but the PSR9000 and Tyros I do not..

When playing back an arrangement, you can re-sing the song and have the vocal harmonizer track the arrangement.

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.

Dp02 recording music(from stero)


Sounds like you are using the DP-02's 'stereo mix' inputs here. If so, the signal input from those is only routed to the line out and headphone jacks and cannot be recorded using the DP-02.

To record from a stereo you need to take the left and right aux outs (or some other line out - like the tape outs) from the stereo and put them into the main A and B mic/line inputs on far right of the DP-02's back panel. Then assign them to two respective tracks and you can record the stereo output to the DP-02. Just make sure you use a line level output from the stereo as the amplified speaker output can overpower and damage the inputs on the DP-02. You might need a couple of rca to 1/4 inch adapters to accomplish this.

Hope this helps.

Unable to record or playback on new DP 02


It sounds like either the inputs are not assigned or the tracks are not armed for recording (or both).

Here is a quick explanation of the procedure involved in recording with the DP-02 that I posted for another person who was asking for some basic instruction on how to record. You might be missing a step somewhere along the line as for instance you will still see the meters move even if you don't have the inputs assigned or don't have any tracks armed, but the DP-02 won't record anything until you do both.


To record you need to first assign your input to a track, then arm the track for recording, and then press play + record at the same time.

1. So you would patch your mixer output, mic or instrument into an input on your DP01 (say input A). You can run some audio to set the level with the input level knob (located next to input A on the front panel).

2. Then to assign that input to a track simply press and hold the 'input A' button and then press the 'rec' button of the track you with to record on. The 'rec' button will flash rapidly to indicate that the input is assigned to the track.

(To assign the input to a different track you have to clear the input assignment from the first track and assign the input to a new track. To clear an assignment press the input assign key, A in this case, and the track it's assigned to will flash its 'rec' button. Hold down the input assign key and then press the flashing 'rec' button. The button will stop flashing and the input can then be assigned to another track by following step 2 again).

3. Next, to arm the track for recording simply press the 'rec' button for that track. The 'rec' button with flash slowly.

4. To begin recording press play + record together in the transport section and the 'rec' light for the armed track will stop flashing and light steadily. Press 'stop' to end recording.

This should get you started. The operation of the DP02 is actually pretty intuitive once you've gone through it a couple of times (which is one of the real strengths of the unit). You'll be multitracking like an expert in no time.

Hope this helped.
Cheers,

Just bought a DP-02 w/40gb hard drive


Hi,

You'll first need to find some aux audio out jacks on your karaoke machine. You might need an adapter, but the basic idea will be to connect the aux out from the karaoke machine to an input on your Tascam DP-02.

Then on the DP-02 you need to assign whatever input your plugged into to one of the 8 tracks. Let's say you're using the left input (input A) and want to put the karaoke music on track 1. You'll press the 'Assign A' button on the DP-02 and while holding it then press the 'Rec' button of track 1. The 'Rec' button will flash rapidly to show its been assigned. (for reference: assigning an input is better described on page 23 of the manual). Then you'll want to arm track 1 to record. Press the 'rec' button for track 1 and it will start to flash slowly to show it has been armed for recording. Now you are ready to start recording. On the DP-02 press the large round play and record buttons on the lower right together to start recording and start your karioke machine playing. When the song is done press stop on the DP-02.

Now to record your vocals you'll need your mic to be plugged in (lets' say it's in input B). You'll need to assign this input to a free track (track 2). Press the 'Assign B' button and while holding it press the 'Rec' button for track 2 (rec button will flash rapidly). Then you'll want to un-arm track 1 and arm track 2 for recording. To do this press the 'rec' button for track 1 so that the light goes off and then press the 'rec' button for track 2 so that it flashes slowly.

So now when you press play and record together to record, you'll hear track 1 playing (the karaoke track you recorded earlier) and you'll be recording vox on track 2. Of course you'll also be recording whatever you hear in the room onto track 2 along with your singing, so in order to get a clean recording there (prevent bleed) you'll want to plug some headphones into the DP-02 and listen to those as you record.

That's pretty much all there is to it. Some variations if you wish to record the karioke in stereo vs mono (I gave you the instructions for mono here), and you may need to turn on phantom power if you have a non-powered mic, but the idea is basically the same.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

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.
