2 Pan and EQ
Although you can get to the pan and EQ separately from the main menu, as described here, you can also move between these screens, as well as the reverb screen (Reverb on page 11), by moving the cursor to the to line of the display and using the left and right keys of the cursor pad.
In audio terms, panning refers to the left-right placement of a signal in the stereo image created by the left and right speakers (or headphones). Placing instruments successfully in the left-right image helps to create a realistic sound, or, if the effect is exaggerated, can be used to create special effects. The panning on the Pocketstudio 5 is used with the four recorded tracks to place them in the left-right image when mixing to a stereo MP3 file.
Since the outputs from both the FX1 and the FX2 recording effects are stereo, you will probably want to make the most of these stereo effects. 1 From the main home screen, press MENU, move the cursor to PAN, and press ENTER.
Func Tr1 / C :PAN Tr2 C Tr3 C ,. Tr4 C
It is also possible to pan the tone generator instruments within the tone generators own mixer. This operation is described in the sections on patterns and Standard MIDI files (Patterns on the Pocketstudio 5 on page 12 and (Standard MIDI files and the Pocketstudio 5 on page 25).
Move the cursor to the bottom of the screen and then move the cursor between the four tracks. Use the wheel to set the pan position (if you do this while you play back the recorded tracks, you can hear your changes). The full left position is shown as L63, the center position as C, and the full right position as R63.
Both inputs A and B, as well as the four recorded tracks, can have EQ (equalization) settings added to them, to add or subtract treble or bass. When the input EQ is used, it affects the sound which is recorded onto the track (or if an instrument is played through the inputs on mixdown, to the stereo mix), and when track EQ is used, it affects the sound sent to the stereo mix and the headphones/line outputs. On most stereo systems with tone controls, there are two controls; treble (high) and bass (low), which add or subtract sound at a fixed pitch. On the Pocketstudio 5, the low and high EQ controls allow you to choose the frequency (pitch) that will be cut or boosted) as well as the amount of cut or boost (gain). 1 From the main home screen, press MENU, move the cursor to EQ, and press ENTER.
Func Source :EQ ,. 0 dB ; / InputA
Move the cursor to the Source field and then use the wheel to select the source that will be affected by these settings (TR1, TR2, TR3, TR4, InputA, or InputB). Move to the LowGain field and select the amount of cut or boost (-12 dB to 12 dB in 1 dB steps). Move to the LowFreq field and select the frequency which will be cut or boosted. The available frequencies are: 32Hz, 40Hz, 50Hz, 60Hz, 70Hz, 80Hz, 90Hz, 100Hz, 125Hz, 150Hz, 175Hz, 200Hz, 225Hz, 250Hz, 300Hz, 350Hz, 400Hz, 450Hz, 500Hz,

Sample settings Here are some examples of settings you can make of popular reverb types. Use these as starting points for your own experiments.
The hall setting gives a spacious feeling to your work
2.7 PreDly 49 HiCut 50 Density 75 Attack 36
This setting provides a sound similar to that of a small, live room
Time PreDly HiCut Density Attack
The first four lines are the four recorded track send levels (SendTr1 through SendTr4), and the next two are the two input send levels (SendInA and SendInB). Following this are the master send (SendMst) and the return level (RtrnLev) parameters. All of the above can be set with value from 0 through 127.
This sound provides a sound similar to that of a live performance in a large arena, etc.
Customizing the reverb sound You can
make the reverb sound individual with the following parameters: Time, PreDly, HiCut, Density and Attack. These are explained in more detail in the Getting Started manual (see the description on page 21).
The instrument booth simulates the sound when you play an instrument in a professional recording studio.
The tone generator built into the Pocketstudio 5 allows you to make up sophisticated backing tracks for your songs easily and quickly. The preset patterns have been professionally set up to give you the widest possible choice for a base to your compositions. You can change the key, the running order of the patterns, and even the instrumentation of the songs to make them uniquely your own. Since the Pocketstudio 5 provides a high degree of flexibility and there are a lot of choices available to you, you should spend some time reading this section, and seeing whats available. We assume that you know about the basic navigation techniques to use with the Pocketstudio 5. If you are not yet familiar with these, we suggest that you read Basic use of the Pocketstudio 5 on page 13 of the Getting Started guide.
A sample song
First, well work through a simple 12-bar blues pattern with an intro, a couple of verses, a fill and another verse in a bluesy rock and roll style in E. Dont worry if 12-bar blues isnt your personal taste, and you like to play in another keythe principles well use will work with your songs, no matter what your personal style of music.
Move the cursor to the Del menu item:
Inst2:DistGtr Write:. Copy Del :. /. '.
Enter the delete screen:
In Out / : 1-Intro 1-Intro ;
You cannot set the To point at a position between the In and the Out points.
When you copy, you copy not only the arrangement, but any chord changes that you may have made. We therefore suggest that if you have a complex series of chord changes which is repeated throughout the song, you set up this set of chord changes once and then perform the copy operation.
Deleting sections Sometimes you want to delete
several sections at once. This is easy to do with the delete function:
Use the cursor pad to move to the In (start section of the area to be deleted) and Out (end section of the area to be deleted) and use the wheel to select the start and end sections of the area to be deleted. The In and Out section can be the same, in which case only that section will be deleted. Press ENTER to delete the selected area.
Remember that this only deletes the pattern data. Any recorded audio data is unaffected.
Setting up the chords
Since were doing an elementary song here, the choice of chords may seem rather uninspired. When youve worked through this, and read a little more through this part, youll find how to make somewhat more interesting arrangements. The final chord pattern were going to end up with for the whole song is:
Verse 2 (VerseB)
(E) (E) (E) (E) A (A) E (E) B A E E / B7 E7 (E7) A7 E7 B7 A7 E7 E7 / B7
E (E)a (E) E / B7 (E) (E) (E) (E) A (A) E (E) B A E E / B7
Verse 1 (Verse A)
Middle 8 (FillAB)
14 TASCAM Pocketstudio 5 Reference Manual
Verse 3 (VerseA)
E (E) (E) (E) A (A) E (E) B A E E / B7 Bm7 E7
The bar number should be 001 (if its not, use the wheel to change it). Right now, we wont bother with the bar change divisions. 1 Move the cursor to the second line and make sure that the first dot () is selected. It should be inverted (k). to allow for a chord change at this point. Beat divisions are shown by (8). Use the wheel to change between these two symbols. Turning the wheel clockwise sets the chord change point, and counterclockwise disables it. Use the cursor pad to move the cursor to the third line, to the root chord field:
More about chord progressions
In the sample song, we only used a few chords. The Pocketstudio 5 is capable of producing almost any chord progression written (using Western-style notation, anyway).
Chord change points
First, the way in which the bars are divided for the chord change points can be set to match the following musical divisions:
a s dn d xn x c
eight divisions in the bar (the chord could change a maximum of eight times in this bar).
B001 k ( 8 4/ x 8 )
whole note (semibreve) half-note (minim) triplet quarter-note (triplet) quarter-note (crochet) triplet eighth-note (triplet quaver) Eighth-note (quaver) Sixteenth-note (semiquaver)
When this setting is made on the first line of the screen, the second line of the screen divides the current bar into the number of parts determined by the change point setting. Here we see a 4/4 bar divided into eighth-notes (quavers), meaning that there are
When you move to the second line of the screen, use and to move between the possible chord change points, and the wheel to set (clockwise) and unset (counterclockwise) these points as actual change points. When a valid (set) change point is highlighted, use to move to the third line to set the chord at that point. A set change point is represented by: k. An unset change point is represented by 8 if it marks a beat boundary, or in other cases.
The effect of changing and inserting sections
As explained earlier (Setting up the song arrangement on page 12) it is possible to change the structure of a song by changing the type of section and by adding and copying sections within the arrangement. The way that the chords are set up in these new sections depends on whether you are using the User or the Preset area (see Select the user area on page 12). In the Preset area whenever you add a new section or you change the type of an existing section, the chord progression within that section will be the default for that particular pattern. In the User area whenever you add a new section, there will be one chord all the way through that section. That chord will be the last chord of the previous section. Since it is a continuation chord, it is shown in parentheses (e.g. (Dbm7/-)). In the User area, when you change the type of an existing section, the chord progression remains the same as previously, but the actual notes played will vary. This means that it is very easy to create instant songs in the Preset area by simply using the default chord progressions and working from there. Further adjustment (deletion of unwanted chord changes, etc.) is then possible by copying the Preset area to the User area (using the Write function in the PATTERN menu) and editing it there.
If you have made a song in the preset area which sounds right, except that it is in the wrong key for you to sing or play, you can change the key of the three parts (bass and two other instrumentsyou cant change the key of the drums!) using the KeyTr parameter (Arranging the parts on page 16).
You can also play MIDI directly into the Pocketstudio 5 from a keyboard or a sequencer, using the internal tone
Transferring SMFs to the Pocketstudio 5
You can copy SMFs to the Pocketstudio 5 in the same way that you copy any file on your computer.
Any SMF should have an 8.3 type filename (that is, the name of the file should be no longer than eight characters long) and the extension should be.MID. Note that if the name is longer than eight characters, it will be abbreviated, spaces are removed, and lowercase letters will be converted to uppercase, so My Blue Rose.mid will become MYBLUE1.
SMFs may contain copyright material. Make sure that you respect the copyright holders interests when you use such files.
See Data, cards, etc. on page 36 for full details of how to connect the Pocketstudio 5 to a computer. When the Pocketstudio 5 is connected to the computer, the card appears as an extra disk. Copy the SMF to the card in the usual way (drag and drop between folders).
Make sure that you copy the SMFs to the SMF folder on the card. If you copy them anywhere else, you will not be able to use them with the Pocketstudio 5.
You can delete an SMF loaded on the card using the Pocketstudio 5. From the CARD menu, use the cursor pad to move down to SMF DELETE, and press ENTER.
/ ELLIE1 YOU4ME WAITING ; Delete>>[ENTER]
Use the cursor pad to scroll the cursor down to the song you want to delete, and press ENTER. After a short time, the display shows Complete !!.
There is no undo possible from this operation. Make sure that if this is an SMF you may want to use again, that there is a copy stored on your computer.
TASCAM Pocketstudio 5 Reference Manual 25
Using SMFs on the Pocketstudio 5
When you play back an SMF on the Pocketstudio 5, you can record along with it. Use the PLAY, STOP, REW, F FWD and MARK transport keys to play back the SMF along with the audio tracks. When you work in this way, the audio will always be synchronized to the MIDI. Playing back an SMF when the TG screen is displayed means that when a part is playing a note, an o flashes briefly on the third line of the display above the part number. You can also disable playback of the SMF, if you want, and use the transport keys to control the audio only. Control the volume of the tone generator with the TG fader (just like the backing tracks).
When you are using an SMF as backing to your audio tracks, you may prefer to set the time display to bars and beats, rather than minutes, seconds and frames. See Choosing the time type on page 28.
Since the card can contain many SMFs, you must choose the one to play back.
The two effects here are entirely independent of any other effects in the Pocketstudio 5. You cannot use these effects with the audio tracks, the audio effects cannot be used with the tone generator, and you cannot use the audio effects with the tone generator effects.
From the main menu, select the TG menu:
WildHand 000:Piano1 ;
12-4--78- p q w e ---
The name of the sequence (if the SMF contains the sequence name this is used, otherwise the filename is used here) is given at the top, together with the first part. Press to start editing the parameters. Use and to select the part. The number of the selected part flashes on the bottom line of the display (if the part is muted, a hyphen - represents the number), and the part number and selected instrument are shown on the top line of the display. Use and to select the parameter to be changed. The second line shows the parameter to be changed, as listed above. Use the wheel to change the value. There is no need to press ENTERthe value changes instantly. This way of working allows you to work easily in one of two ways: either setting all the parameters for one part (use and ) or setting the same parameter for different parts (use and ).
The transposition is useful if you are learning a piece written in F#, for example, but youre not yet sure of
Choosing the meter display
You can choose between four different styles of meter shown on the screen: short/slim (ShrtSlim), long/slim (LongSlim), short/ fat (ShrtFat) or long/fat (LongFat). 1
From the system menu, move to the option:
TgMode:Pattern Tempo Time Meter :--------:ABS / ShrtSlim '
Use the wheel to select the meter type to be displayed on the home screen.
Choosing the time type
Depending on your preference, the time can be displayed in minutes, seconds and frames (there are either 38 or 39 frames in a second) or in measures (bars) and beats. 1 From the system menu, move to the Time: option:
Record:Tracking TgMode:Pattern Tempo Time :--------/ ABS ; NOTE
The bars and beats display is not a magic indicator. If you are not playing in time with the MIDI tone generator, there is no way for the Pocketstudio 5 to know anything about the musical tempo or structure of your music.
From the home screen, you can jump to different parts of the song. You can either make the jump to a value in minutes, seconds and frames (there are 37 or 38 frames to a second), or in bars and beats), depending on the time type that has been selected in the way described above. As you turn the wheel, the number flashes. If you are going to set other fields, use the cursor pad to move to another field (it starts to flash), and the number you have just left stops flashing. 4 When you have finished setting the values, press ENTER to locate to the position you have just set. You can use this position to start playback or recording, as the IN or OUT point for punch recording or repeat playback, or as the point to set a mark.
To jump to a location (mm:ss:ff): Follow the
steps below: Stop playback or recording. On the home screen, move the cursor so that the cursor (underline) is under one of the three time fields (minutes, seconds or frames):
To jump to a bars and beats location This
is basically the same as the time-based location procedure, except for the following:
Turn the wheel to change the value. Note that if you turn the seconds value past 59, the value resets to zero and the value of the minutes goes up by one (the reverse happens if you go below zero). The frames and minutes fields also interact in the same way.
Bars and beats are separated by a hyphen (-), rather than a colon (:). Increasing the beat counter does not automatically move to the next bar, and turning the beat counter below zero does not move to the previous bar. Like the time-based location, you must press ENTER to move to the new location.
Use the mark functions to set and recall critical points (verse beginnings, instrumental breaks, etc. within a song). These marks can be used with song editing functions (see Editing data on page 40) as well as for location. As well as the eight user-definable breaks which you can set anywhere within the song and rename to whatever suits you best, there are also two other special points, IN and OUT, used with the repeat and the auto punch function. These cannot be renamed.
Automated punch recording
Although you can use the method above, it is difficult to press keys on the Pocketstudio 5 when you are playing an instrument that needs two hands, like a guitar. Also, automation allows you to rehearse the punch, so that you punch in and out at the right times, and dont overwrite any of the important material that youve recorded before. There are two important location points that you must set for punch recording: the IN point and the OUT point, where you punch in and punch out.
Setting the IN and OUT points
Set these points either on the fly while playing back, while playback is stopped at the appropriate point. Simply press the IN or OUT key at the appropriate point where you want punching to start or to stop.
(if a phrase like this occurs in your song), and to set the IN and OUT points in that silence.
When you have set the IN and OUT points, they appear on the display like marks (see Marks on page 29), and they can be edited and deleted in the same way. They cannot be renamed, though.
Even if you have played just one wrong note, you may find it very difficult to play just that one note correctly. The best way of punching in and out is usually to record a whole phrase, with a little silence before and after it
Note that you cannot delete the IN and OUT points while the AUTO PUNCH key is flashing or lit (see below).
Rehearsing a punch operation
When the marks have been set, press the AUTO PUNCH key, which starts flashing. Playback goes back to a little (three seconds) before the IN point. Arm the track you want to record, and assign an input to it (Routing an input to a track on page 14 of Getting Started). The REC READY light of the track will flash.
Press PLAY. Playback starts until the IN point is reached. Then the playback monitoring stops, and the RECORD key flashes until the OUT point is reached. Then playback from the track starts again, and the RECORD key stops flashing. Three seconds after the OUT point, the playback point then rewinds to three seconds before the IN point. At this point, you may decide that the IN and OUT points need to be adjusted (maybe you were a little slow in hitting the keys when you first set them). See Naming and editing mark points on page 30 for details.
If the REPEAT key is pressed so that it is lit, you can automatically repeat this rehearsal process as many times as you want, hands-free. You can press the REPEAT key to turn repeat or off while the rehearsal is taking place.
Recording the punch
When you are ready to record, rewind to before the IN point if necessary (usually the Pocketstudio 5 will have done this for you). Press the flashing AUTO PUNCH key so that it lights steadily (if the REPEAT key is on, it will turn off). Press the PLAY key. When the Pocketstudio 5 reaches the IN point, the RECORD key lights, and recording starts. Off-track monitoring stops. When the OUT point is reached, the off-track monitoring starts again Repeat the punch recording for as many times as it takes to get it right (but you cant set automatic repeat). You probably wont get it right first time, so dont worry. Just carry on until you get a take youre happy with.
Checking the punch
To check the punch, rewind to before the IN point, turn off the AUTO PUNCH key, and press PLAY. You will hear the lead-in to the punch point, the punched material, and the material after the punch. If you are not happy with the punch, you can turn on the AUTO PUNCH key again (the IN and OUT points will remain), and re-record the punch.
Like many multitrack devices, the Pocketstudio 5 allows you to bounce tracks (that is, combine already-recorded tracks with each other so that the old tracks are then available for further recording) On the Pocketstudio 5, you can even bounce tracks to themselves. The way in which this works is that the MASTER outputs are looped back inside and can then be recorded on any armed tracks.
MASTER L and R
This means that you can record more than four tracks in the Pocketstudio 5.
Drums L Drums R 3 Bass L 4 Bass R
3 Drums + Drums + Bass L bass L bass R (reuse)
4 Bass R (reuse)
However, when you are bouncing tracks, you should take note of the following:
32 TASCAM Pocketstudio 5 Reference Manual
When you enter the bounce mode, the only sources are the left and right stereo master outputs, allowing you to record all tracks, as well as the output of the tone generator. You should therefore be careful that the tone generator is turned off at this point Although you can bounce tracks to themselves, you lose the original track (in the last diagram, drum tracks 1 and 2 will be overwritten by the mixed bounce). However, you can use the Pocketstudio 5s undo function that allows you to recover your original tracks if you have made a mistake. If you start recording after a bounce operation, the undo operation will no longer allow you to restore the tracks you have overwritten. you are not adding any signals from the inputs during the bounce operation.
Move the cursor down to MP3 NAME and press ENTER:
MP3 Name Name :STMIX
there is already a file called STMIX, it will be overwritten by the new mix, and you cannot undo the operation!
Renaming an MP3 file You must rename the
STMIX MP3 file to keep it, following the procedure
here: 3 Load the STMIX MP3 file for recording or playback (see this section and the following). Press the MP3 key so that it is unlit. From the CARD menu, select MP3 NAME, and press ENTER:
Use the cursor pad and wheel to reset the name (say to MIX1). Now, when you press the MP3 key to start mixdown, you will see the new name in the list:
/ STMIX MIX1 Load>>[ENTER]
You can select a new mix (STMIX) or you can overwrite any existing mixes (here, there is only oneMIX1). The important thing to remember is that whenever you create a new mix, it will be saved as STMIX. If
Use the cursor keys and the wheel to enter the characters of the name, and then press ENTER to confirm the setting of the name.
Selecting MP3s for playback
When you have made a number of mixes, you will want to select the different mixes to play back so that you can compare the different versions of your work. Press the MP3 key until it flashes green. The list of available MP3s (mixes, etc.) appears on screen.
/ MIX1 MIX2 BIGBASS ; Load>>[ENTER]
either REW or F FWD will start fast rewind or forward (playback is muted). To return to the start, use the STOP + REW combination (the LRP combination naturally has no meaning here). Repeat playback is not possible, and it is not possible to set marks while playing back an MP3 file. Bars and beats timing is not possible, and the frames field is not available for display or location (minutes and seconds only).
Use the cursor pad to select the MP3 file to be loaded and press ENTER. The MP3 key lights green. Now you can use the transport keys to control the playback of the stereo MP3 file. PLAY and STOP work as usual. RECORD has no effect on the MP3 file, but allows the MP3 file to be recorded on the multitrack tracks (see below). Pressing and holding
If there are no MP3 files currently on the Pocketstudio 5, the display shows No File.
The directory structure of the cards is explained here. Note the following file and folder names (if you are recreating these folders after an accidental delete, or if you have to create them on a new card, these names should all be uppercase):
All these files and folders are created automatically when a card is formatted, except for the PATTERN.001 file, which must be copied manually after a format. One song folder with the correct files included may also be optionally created after a format. See Before you start using a new CF card on page 24 of the Getting Started guide. Do not delete or rename these folders or files. If you do, you will not be able to access the data on the card from the Pocketstudio 5.

See the later sections (Optimizing a card on page 40, etc.) for details of other operations which involve the card.
Working with songs with the Pocketstudio 5
You can store up to four songs on the Pocketstudio 5s card, regardless of the card size or the song. As explained above, a song consists of three files included in a folder. The folder is always called Songx, where x is a number between 1 and 4. The 8-character song name used within the Pocketstudio 5 is held as a zero-length file with a.100 extension (for example, songname.100). If you change the name of this file on your computer, when you reload the song onto the Pocketstudio 5, the name of the song that you see on the Pocketstudio 5 will not change, however. The song must be renamed on the Pocketstudio 5. When you transfer the files to your computer, you will probably want to rename the folder to something more readable. However, note that you will not be able to restore the song to the Pocketstudio 5 with the new folder name that you have given it. You must rename it with the original SONGx name. Transferring songs between your computer and the Pocketstudio 5, in either direction, must always be done so that all files are transferred together.
Start your e-mail program and add this file as an attachment to the mail message youre sending to your friend (the way that your

Things you can do with the Pocketstudio 5
Youve probably got lots of ideas of your own how you can use the Pocketstudio 5. Here are a few that you might not have thought of: Set the two inputs to line level and feed them from a pair of aux sends of the mixer at a live gig for a stereo recording. If youre in a cover band, fill the Pocketstudio 5 with stereo MP3s of the original recording and use them as backing while you learn the songs. If youre a solo keyboard artist, record your MIDI backings onto Standard MIDI Files, load them into the Pocketstudio 5 and take it along to your next gig. Add a MIDI keyboard, cable, mic and cable, audio cables and some powered speakers, and thats it! You can even get your guitarist friends to join in. If youre producing a solo artist, make a rough of the backing onto SMF, and pass it on to the artiste to practice at home on their Pocketstudio 5. Once theyve got it worked out, they can come into the studio and lay down their vocal lines to the proper backing. Take the Pocketstudio 5 anywhereinspiration might even strike on the beach! The batteries allow you to record your ideas anywhere. The line output can plug into your car stereo with a cassette adapter or a line input. If youre a guitarist or singer, but not a MIDI arranger, you can get someone else to do the MIDI backing, based on your ideas, and then you add your acoustic lines afterwards. Download SMFs (the legal, free ones) from the Internet, and jam along, or sing karaoke. You can even use the Pocketstudio 5 as a removable disk drive for boring things like word processing documents and spreadsheets. Your digital camera probably uses the same media (CF cards). And on a less serious note Whos got the biggest MP3 player? As the owner of a Pocketstudio 5, youll probably win every time. Keep a 7-year-old happy for hours by telling them its a video game! Peace and quiet guaranteed.
