Updating your Pocketstudio 5
Check the version of your Pocketstudio 5 software as described below. If the version is 1.01 or 1.13 you should upgrade to the latest version of the software (2.04). To check the current software version installed on your Pocketstudio 5, turn on the unit, and examine the software version number shown on the bottom right of the display:
TASCAM POCKETSTUDIO 5 V2.04
If you do not see V2.04 here, you will need to follow the upgrade procedures below.
After you have upgraded the Pocketstudio 5 as described in the following section, the first time that you insert a card that has been formatted using a previous version of the Pocketstudio 5 software, you will see messages (e.g. Making PGM file) appear briefly on the display as the Pocketstudio 5 updates the card.
You can always check on the latest available version of the software by visiting the TASCAM Web site at www.tascam.com/pocketstudio.

We assume that you already know how to open folders, copy and move files, etc. on your computer system. If you are in any doubt as to how to perform these operations, please consult the documentation supplied with your computer.
First steps (Windows systems)
The update software comes in a ZIP format archive file, which means that you should have a program installed on your system capable of expanding such archives. A program such as WinZip is ideal. Following the instructions supplied with your archive software, extract the archive to a location you can remember (for example My Documents). After extracting the ZIP archive, you should see a folder containing one file, called UTILITY.LDR, and one folder, called UTILITY, containing two files: FPRG101.UTL and PS5PRG.204.
First steps (Mac OS 9 and OS X 10.1 and above)
The update software comes in a Zip format archive file, which means that you should have a program installed on your system capable of expanding such archives. A program such as Stuffit Expander is ideal. Following the instructions supplied with your archive software, extract the archive to a location you can remember (for example the Desktop).

On Windows Me/2000/XP systems, a small card icon will appear in the taskbar. On Macintosh systems, it will appear as a drive called POCKET_5. Create a folder on your computers hard disk called PS5Backup or something similar. Drag any song folders (they have the same names as the titles of the songs on the Pocketstudio 5) and their contents into the backup folder on your computer. If you have MP3 or SMF (Standard MIDI) files on your Pocketstudio 5, drag the MP3 and SMF folders and their contents into the backup folder on your computer. Copy the PATTERN.001 file into the backup folder on your computer.

Note the following corrections and changes to the original Reference Manual. Though you probably will not find that these mistakes affect your understanding of how the Pocketstudio 5 works, you may want to make these corrections in the Reference Manual. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by these mistakes.
Mac OS 8
In the original documentation supplied with the Pocketstudio 5 it was mistakenly stated that the Pocketstudio 5 would function with Mac OS 8. This is not the case, and we would like to take this opportunity to apologize for this error.

TASCAM Pocketstudio 5 Version 2.0 Release Notes 7
These features already exist in software version 1.13, but will be new to you if you are upgrading from an earlier version than 1.13. In any case, they are not described in the printed documentation accompanying your Pocketstudio 5.
Increased number of songs
One of the most immediate changes is that you can record and store up to the Pocketstudio 5 up to nine songs. This gives you more flexibility in the way that you work, etc. You can store up to 63 MP3 files and up to 63 SMF files on the card (subject to space), but files with a filename of between eight and 16 characters will count as two files, and files with a filename of more than 16 characters will count as three files. We therefore suggest that you limit your MP3 and SMF file names to eight characters.
Although 9 song files are available to you for storing songs, you can create many new small songs or songlets within the same song file. If the first songlet starts at 00:00:00 (or in bars and beats 000-00), and ends at 00:02:35 (or 100-04), simply start the next songlet at 00:03:00 (or 120-01), for example. Use the Marks to set the start of songlets, etc. Remember to leave a suitable gap between the songlets and keep a note of where they start and end. This is useful if you are using the Pocketstudio 5 to jot down many short musical ideas.
Improved OS support
Since version 1.13, you can use your Pocketstudio 5 with Mac OS X 10.1 and above. Enter USB mode on the Pocketstudio 5 in the usual way (while the Pocketstudio 5 is connected to the computer, hold down the ENTER key and turn on the unit). A card mounted on the Pocketstudio 5 which has been formatted with version 1.13 or above appears as a removable drive called POCKET_5. When you want to disconnect the Pocketstudio 5, eject the disk (Command-E or drag it to the Trash).
The default meter type is now the long fat type (previously it was the short thin type). All new songs created will use this style unless you select another style.
You set meter styles in the SYSTEM menu.
Note that a wider variety of bit rates is now supported for imported MP3 files. We strongly suggest that all MP3 files are encoded at the 44.1 kHz sampling frequency. However, when playing back variable bit rate (VBR) MP3 files, you should note that the F FWD and REW keys and the locate functions do not function in MP3 playback mode.
8 TASCAM Pocketstudio 5 Version 2.0 Release Notes
The procedure described in Mixdown on page 20 of the Getting Started manual has changed somewhat from that described in the manual. It is now easier to produce different mixes of the same song. As a brief reminder, remember that the MP3 key has three states showing the current Pocketstudio 5 mode (press the key to cycle between these different modes):
Red: Mix to MP3 mode You combine the recorded tracks and the tone generator into a stereo MP3 file. Green: MP3 playback mode You can playback MP3 files, either the ones you have created yourself through the mixdown process or ones you have imported, singly or in a program list. When the MP3 key is flashing, the Pocketstudio 5 is in a transition state, changing from one mode to another. As it changes from one mode to another, the display shows the new mode.
Off: tracking mode In this mode, you can
record the tracks, etc. before you do the mixdown.
Entering Mix to MP3 mode
In this mode you can either mix your recorded tracks down to stereo 128kbps MP3 files, or to use the Pocketstudio 5 as a portable stereo recorder (for live recordings, interviews, etc., using the two inputs to record directly to MP3). 1 After you have finished recording the tracks, press the MP3 key so that it flashes red. The display shows:
MIX TO mode MP3
Use the wheel to select an existing MP3 file which will be overwritten by the new mix. and/or Use the cursor pad and wheel to edit the displayed name to create a new MP3 file.
If you have entered the mixdown mode by accident (you didnt mean to press the MP3 key), press EXIT at this point, and you will return to the tracking mode (the MP3 key is unlit).
and then changes to:
If you have used the first or second method described above, and the MP3 key is still flashing, press ENTER so that the MP3 key lights red steadily. If you chose to use an existing MP3 filename for your new mix, the MP3 key continues to flash, and the display shows:
Name / STMIX Sure?>>[ENTER]
The MP3 key is still flashing red at this point. 2 Now you have a choice. You can either: Press ENTER immediately to create a new mix called STMIX. Any existing MP3 file called STMIX will be overwritten. or
Press ENTER to overwrite, or EXIT to return to the previous display. Now you can either mix recorded tracks ("Mixing down" on page 10) or record a stereo MP3 file ("MP3 recording" on page 10).
TASCAM Pocketstudio 5 Version 2.0 Release Notes 9
Now you can adjust the track levels, pan position, EQ, etc. of the tracks to the position they should be at when the mix starts.
The inputs are active in this mode. If you are not adding any material to the recorded tracks at the mix stage, make sure the input levels are turned down, and that the input B selector switch is not at the BUILT IN position.
The MP3 key then lights solid green to show that you can now play MP3s. If you have enabled the program play list mode ("Playing back the list" on page 13), you will see that the MP3 file(s) that you have just created from your mixes 3 Press ENTER to remain in mixdown mode and record another mix of the same song. Here, you have the chance to overwrite the last MP3 mix that you created, or enter a new name and make another MP3 file (pressing EXIT takes you to MP3 play mode, as described below).
Create MP3 Name / LASTNAME Sure?>>[ENTER]
When you have the settings the way you want them, press and hold down PLAY and press RECORD to start the mixdown process. Move the faders to set levels, and make any other changes such as pan, EQ, etc. Press STOP when you have finished the mix. The mix is written to card (the RECORD key flashes and then goes out) and the display changes.
LASTNAME Record again?
Press ENTER to overwrite the last mix, the wheel alone to select another existing file, and/or the cursor pad and wheel to edit the name of the resulting mix file, as if you were starting the mix from the beginning. Press EXIT to return to the tracking mode.
Instead of LASTNAME, the name of the last MP3 file you mixed to will be shown, of course. If you press EXIT at this point, the MP3 key flashes green briefly while the display shows MP3 PLAY mode.
When you are recording many different mixes of the same material, you can use the cursor pad to move to the end of the displayed name and simply add a number, e.g. MYMIX1, MYMIX2, etc. This is a fast and easy way of creating unique names.
To use the Pocketstudio 5 as a stereo MP3 recorder, follow the steps below. 1 Connect the recording sources (or select the built-in microphone). You have the option to set the input mode to
St Pair as described in "Input panning"
Make sure that all four track faders, along with the TG fader, are at their minimum level (all down). The MASTER fader should be about 75% up (as marked on the Pocketstudio 5 itself). Adjust the input levels and start recording (RECORD and PLAY). At the end of the recording session, the recording is written to card. Follow the instructions from step 2 of "Mixing down" on page 10 onwards to record other tracks, etc.
on page 17 so that input A is sent to the left track, and input B is sent to the right track. 2 Select the MP3 file that you will record using the steps in "Entering Mix to MP3 mode" on page 9 above.

Replay of mixed material
When youve completed your last mixdown session or your MP3 recording, press the EXIT key to enter MP3 play mode, as shown on the display (the MP3 key turns flashing, and then solid green). Your mixes have been added to the head of the program list. Play back the MP3 mixes or recordings, either using the program list features, as described in "Playing back the list" on page 13, or in single mode.
Using the F. key to enter MP3 play mode
A new function is available to allow one-touch MP3 play mode. You can use this mode as an alternative to the one described above. 1 Press and hold the F. key for a couple of seconds or so to show the list of possible key assignments. Use the cursor pad to scroll to the bottom of the list:
PTRN PTRN / MP3 ARRANGE CHORD PLAY MODE
Press ENTER to assign the F. key to the MP3 play mode. The display briefly shows the assignment, and then returns to the previous display. You can now press the F. key briefly from any display to enter MP3 play mode. The MP3 key light will flash green and then light solid green.
When you have entered MP3 play mode in this way, exit by pressing the MP3 key as described below.
Returning to tracking mode
From the MP3 play mode, return to the tracking mode by pressing the MP3 key one more time. The key flashes while the display shows TRACKING mode. and then goes out. You may now continue recording the tracks.
The program list is a new feature in the version 2 software. allowing you to store a list of up to 99 MP3 files. Use the list to play back a list of songs (including your mixes) in a set order, and repeat a list of songs, etc. Remember you can store up to 63 MP3 files on a card, so if you use all 99 slots, some files will be repeated in the list.

Any MP3 file that you create by mixing or recording ("Entering Mix to MP3 mode" on page 9) is automatically added to the top of the list.
Adding an entry to the list
1 Move the cursor to the list entry above which you will add the new entry. Note that if there are no entries in the list, there is one line showing ---List End---. If there are no entries in the list, turn the wheel clockwise. An entry in the list is created above the List End marker. The name of the first MP3 in the MP3 folder is shown, blinking. Turn the wheel to select the MP3 that you want to add to the top of the list. Now press the right cursor pad so that the whole line blinks and turn the wheel clockwise again to add another entry to the top of the list in the same way. or If there are already entries in the list, move the cursor down to the point just before you want to add a new entry (List End if you want to add to the end of the list).

Play along with MP3 (karaoke)
If you have loaded an MP3 and you are in MP3 play mode (the MP3 key is lit green), you can use the built-in or external microphones or the line/guitar inputs to sing or play along with the MP3. You can also use the two input effects at this time, allowing your sing-along to have a professional feel to it.
When you are listening to MP3s and are not singing or playing along, you almost certainly will not want to pick up the sound from the internal microphone. Make sure that the input selector switch is not in the BUILT IN position and that the input levels are turned down.
In previous versions of the software, there was no way to record a true stereo MP3 file directly from the inputs, because input signals were sent to both sides of the stereo bus equally. It is now possible to route the signals independently to the left and right destination tracks when making stereo MP3 recordings ("MP3 recording" on page 10). Input A is sent to the left channel of the stereo MP3, and Input B to the right channel. In normal tracking mode, this new option also sends the signal from input A to either track 1 or 3 (but not to 2 or 4) and the signal from input B to track 2 or 4 (but not to 1 or 3). This means that you cannot record two tracks from one input when using the input effects in this mode (only half the signal is recorded on one track). Press the MENU key, move to the SYSTEM menu and press ENTER. Move to the Input option, and use the wheel to select either Normal (inputs are routed to left and right tracks equally) or ST Pair (the two inputs are routed to the left and right independently).
Record:Tracking Input / ST Pair ; TgMode:Pattern Tempo:--------
To make your life easier, you can now use preset song part names as building blocks to help name marks. The way you use them is as follows: Insert your marks in a song as normal (press the MARK key at the appropriate locations). Edit the markspress the MENU key, enter the CARD menu, and then the SONG EDIT menu. Move the cursor down to EDIT MARK and then press ENTER.
Select / Mark Mark Mark 3 Mark. ;
Use the cursor pad to move to a mark, and then press the right cursor pad:
Name:Mark Time: Mode:Word Write>>[ENTER] 1 00:30:19
Turn the wheel. While the Mode parameter on the third line is set to Word, you can set the mark title to one of the following preset names: Intro, Verse1, Verse2, Verse3, Bridge1, Bridge2, Bridge3, Chorus1, Chorus2, Chorus3, Solo and Ending.
But what if you have more than three verses, and you want to enter Verse5, for example?
TASCAM Pocketstudio 5 Version 2.0 Release Notes 17
6 Move down to Mode, and set this parameter to Normal. Now when you move up again to the mark name and turn the wheel, you can edit the name by a character at a time, so its easy to change the verse number.
Remember that you can only use eight marks per song.
Press ENTER to write the new mark settings.
When youre recording with a MIDI pattern or a MIDI file, you dont need a metronomethe MIDI instruments help to keep you in time. However, when youre playing with no backing, you may want a metronome to keep in time (you may also want a count-in to a patternsee below). With the version 2 software, the Pocketstudio 5 provides you with just that. To set up and use the metronome with no backing: 3 Press the MENU key and enter the SYSTEM menu. Set the TgMode to OFF. Move down to the Metro (metronome) parameter, and press the right cursor pad:
Tempo Level / d =120 4/4 TimSig:
TimSig Set the time signature for your song. Select from the following: 1/1, 2/1, 3/1, 4/1, 5/1, 6/1, 7/1, 8/1, 1/2, 2/2, 3/2, 4/2, 5/2, 6/2, 7/2, 8/2, 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, 5/4, 6/4, 7/4, 8/4, 1/8, 2/8, 3/8, 4/8, 5/8, 6/8, 7/8, 8/8, 1/16, 2/16, 3/16, 4/16, 5/ 16, 6/16, 7/16, 8/16, 9/16, 10/ 16, 11/16, 12/16, 13/16, 14/16, 15/16 and 16/16. Level Set the initial level for the metronome (0 through 127).
Press EXIT. Set when you want the metronome to play: RecOnly (only while recording), RecPlay (while recording and playing back), or OFF. Now when you play back or record (as set above), you can hear the metronome. You can adjust the volume with the TG fader.
Tempo Set the tempo for your song (from 50 through 250, measured in beats per
Remember to turn the metronome OFF when you are mixing down, otherwise the metronome sound will be included in the final mix when you mix down (almost certainly, you do not want this to happen).
When you are playing with one of the tone generator patterns, you will usually want a count-in to allow you to adjust to the tempo before you start playing or singing. In this version of the Pocketstudio 5 software, you can do this in the following way: From the SYSTEM menu, set the TgMode to Pattern. Set up the metronome as above (the tempo and time signature are determined by the pattern, of course). Enter the PATTERN menu, scroll down to Arnge (arrange), use the wheel to select User or Preset, and press the right cur4 sor pad (the display will show something like this).
/ 1-Intro ( 4) 4) 1) 4) ; 5-VerseA( 9-FillAB( 10-VerseB(
Now press the left cursor pad so that only the 1 on the first line is blinking. This is the measure (bar) at which this section of the song pattern starts. Use the wheel so that the first section starts after the beginning of the song. For example,
18 TASCAM Pocketstudio 5 Version 2.0 Release Notes
setting this figure to 3 will give you a 2-measure count-in.
/ 3-Intro ( 4) 4) 1) 4) ; TIP 7-VerseA( 11-FillAB( 12-VerseB(
When you come to mix down the song, remember to turn off the metronome, and to start the mixdown at measure 3 of the song.
It may be useful for you to put a mark named Intro at measure 3, beat 1, so that you can easily start playback from that point.
Now when you play back or record the song, you will hear the metronome sound for 2 measures before the Intro section starts.
There are times when you want to transpose the whole of a pattern. For example, you may have written a blues song pattern in E for practicing, but now you want to practice in B. Of course, you could go through every part and drop every section in every instrument by a semitone, but theres an easier way. 1 With the tone generator selected to be in Pattern mode (SYSTEM menu), press the MENU key, navigate to PATTERN, and press ENTER. Use the cursor pad to scroll down to KeyTr (key transpose). Now use the wheel to adjust the pattern up or down by up to three octaves (36 semitones).
You can do this while you are playing back the pattern, to allow you to preview your changes while you are playing or singing along. This allows you to find the key which is best for your voice, for example.
The bass and the two instruments will be transposed by the amount you specify, but the drums (naturally) will not. Also, note that although you have changed the pitch of the playback, the chords that you have input will appear the same on the display. Returning to our blues which we wrote in E, if the transpose value is set to -5, the playback will actually be in B, but if you look at the chords in the Chord sub-menu, they will still read E, A7, B7, etc.
