SD cards
This unit uses SD cards for recording and playback. A list of SD cards that we have confirmed to work with this unit is provided on our website (http://www.tascam.com/).

Precautions for use

SD cards are delicate media. In order to avoid damaging a card or the card slot, please take the following precautions when handling them. Do not leave in extremely hot or cold places. Do not leave them in extremely humid places. Do not let them get wet. Do not put things on top of them or twist them. Do not hit them.

Beware of condensation

If the unit is moved from a cold to a warm place, or used after a sudden temperature change, there is a danger of condensation; vapor in the air could condense on the internal mechanism, making correct operation impossible. To prevent this, or if this occurs, let the unit sit for one or two hours at the new room temperature before using.

Cleaning the unit

To clean the unit, wipe gently with a soft dry cloth. Do not use any benzene, paint thinner, ethyl alcohol or other chemical agents to clean the unit as they could damage the surface or cause fading.

4Preparation for Use

Using with batteries

This unit can be powered by both a lithium ion battery and two AA batteries. By using both types of batteries together, the unit can be operated continuously for a long time. Moreover, one type of battery can be changed while the unit continues to operate when, for example the charge becomes low in one of the batteries.
Types of batteries that can be used Lithium ion battery (included) AA alkaline batteries (LR6) AA Ni-MH batteries (HR15/51)

NOTE NOTE

Connect this unit to the computer directly. Proper operation cannot be guaranteed when using a USB hub. When connected by USB, recharging occurs even if the units power is off. When recharging with a computer, this unit enters the USB mode, so other functions cannot be used. The CHARGE indicator lights while charging and turns off when charging is complete.

Using AA batteries

Open the battery compartment cover on the back of the unit, install the batteries with the correct +/- orientation and close the battery compartment cover.
Using the lithium ion battery
Open the battery compartment cover on the side of the unit, and insert the battery into the compartment with the correct orientation.
Charging the lithium ion battery
There are two ways to charge the lithium ion battery.
Charging with an AC adapter
Connect a PS-P520 AC adapter (sold separately) to the unit's DC IN 5V connector. Charging takes about three hours. (See Using an AC adapter (sold separately) on page 18.)

Charging with a computer

When using AA batteries, set the type of battery in order to accurately show the amount of power remaining and allow the unit to accurately determine whether power is available for proper operation. (See Setting the type of AA batteries (AA BATTERY) on page 45.)
Connect with a computer using the included USB cable. Charging takes about six hours. (See 8Connecting with a Computer on page 37.)

Setting the input

Select the recording input source by using the input switch on the top panel. LINE LINE IN connector UNI Built-in directional stereo mics OMNI Built-in omnidirectional stereo mics XLR XLR MIC IN connectors
Higher values provide better recording quality. WAV files are higher quality than MP3 files, but they take up more space, so MP3 formats allow for longer recordings. If the maximum set file size is exceeded during recording, the unit will automatically continue recording in a new file. Depending on the file format, the amount of recording time will differ for the same file size. Recording automatically stops if recording time exceeds 24 hours.
Recording with the built-in mics (UNI/OMNI)

UNI MICS

Set the INPUT switch to UNI. These mics are suitable for recording live performances of instrumentalists and bands, as well as field recording, for example. Point the mics at the sound source and place the unit in a stable location where there is little vibration. If noise is caused by wind, attach the windscreen.

Recording

Press the RECORD () key to put the unit in recording standby.
Press the RECORD () key again to start recording.
If the level meters do not extend very far even as the INPUT volume setting approaches 10, set the MIC GAIN to H. On the other hand, if the level meters stay extended even as the INPUT volume setting approaches 0, set the MIC GAIN to L.

Stop recording

When recording, press the STOP () key to stop recording and return to the beginning of the file.
If the INPUT switch is set to LINE, the MIC GAIN setting has no effect.

Message

Card Ful l

Meaning and response
The card has no remaining capacity. Erase unnecessary files or move them to your computer to make open space. Folders can be created down to two layers. You cannot create a new folder inside the current folder. The position selected for divide is not suitable (too close to the beginning or end of a track). The file is larger than the designated size or the recording time exceeded 24 hours. The total number of folders and files exceeds 999. Erase unnecessary files or move them to your computer. The card could not be handled properly. Replace the card. MP3 files cannot be divided. The file is read only and cannot be erased. No card is in the unit, so recording is not possible. There is no file that can be played back. The file might be damaged. There is no playback file, so DIVIDE and OVERDUB cannot be executed.

Updates

Always use the most recent firmware for this device. Please visit the TASCAM web site at http://www.tascam.com to check for the latest firmware.

New function

V.1.10 addition
Files with 96 kHz sampling frequencies can now be used. In addition to the STD mode, which includes the MP3, 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz options that the unit already had, a new HS mode has been added. HS mode allows the unit to now record and play 96 kHz files and also has 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz options. Limitations during the use of HS mode MP3 files cannot be recorded or played. Switch to STD mode to play or record MP3s. 96 kHz files cannot be overdubbed. Playback speed adjustment and VSA functions cannot be used with 96 kHz files. During loop playback of 96 kHz files, a gap occurs at the beginning of the loop. When using track incrementing (TRK INC) mode with 96 kHz recording, files with four seconds or less of recording time cannot be created.

Maintenance items

V1.11 changes
Corrected a problem in which, after playing back a 44.1-kHz WAVE-format file, cancelling recording when set to pre-record at 96-kHz resulted in the screen becoming blank and other issues. Corrected a problem in which, if the remaining capacity exceeded 4 GB, the USED SIZE card capacity was not shown accurately on the INFORMATION Menu. Corrected a problem in which the DIMMER setting was not retained during use of HS mode. Corrected a problem in which during recording of a WAVE-format file, a Timeout error occurred after adding a mark and incrementing the track. Corrected a problem in which the ends of some MP3 files were not played. Corrected a problem in which, when paused while the auto-record function was active, recording did not start even when the input signal exceeded the start level. Corrected a problem in which a maximum of only 93 marks could be added to MP3 files.

V1.02 changes

Corrected a problem in which noise occurred in the input sound during recording, when record ready or when input monitoring was ON. Corrected a problem in which marks were not added when recording was started from a paused state.
