1–Introduction
Thank you for your purchase of the TASCAM HD-R1
professional stereo audio recorder. Before using the
unit, please take time to read this manual thoroughly
to ensure that you understand the operation of its
many useful and convenient functions. After you have
finished reading this manual, please keep it in a safe
place for future reference.
The HD-R1 is a rack-mountable stereo audio recorder
that uses standard Compact Flash memory cards to
record in mono or stereo, 16- or 24-bit, at sample
rates of 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz and 96 kHz. The
HD-R1 supports digital and analog audio inputs and
outputs. Audio is recorded into uncompressed audio
files (WAV) or compressed audio files (MP3) nondestructively, meaning that one may start recording at
any time without losing previously recorded material
The HD-R1 can be controlled remotely via its RS232C serial port, via its Parallel port or via an Ethernet
Local Area Network (LAN). Ethernet may be also
used to transfer files to or from a computer using the
common File Transfer Protocol (FTP) standard. The
built-in USB port permits files to be transferred to or
from a USB storage device. It also supports the use of
a USB computer keyboard, making it easier to enter
text.
NOTE
Please be aware that the HD-R1 only supports MP3 and
WAV audio files. It does not support other audio file
formats such as WMF, AAC, MP4 or M4A.
The HD-R1 can be set to play a single file, all files on
the CF card or all files within a specific folder, or to
follow playlists which permit arbitrary track ordering,
adjustable start and end points per track, volume
adjustment per track, and many other useful features.
Document conventions
Throughout this document the following conventions
will be used:
Track – A WAV or MP3 audio file, or portion thereof,
as defined by an entry in a playlist.

1–Introduction
Environmental considerations
Do not use any benzene, paint thinner, ethyl alcohol
or other chemical agents to clean the unit as it could
damage the surface. To clean the unit, wipe gently
with a soft dry cloth.
Precautions for placement and use
The HD-R1 may be used in most areas, but to
maintain top performance, and prolong operating
life, observe the following notes, precautions and
environmental conditions:
•Avoid exposing it to extremes of temperature
and humidity and avoid mechanical shocks and
vibration.
•Keep the unit away from strong magnetic fields
(TV sets, computer monitors, large electric motors,
etc.).
•The nominal temperature should be between 5°C
and 35°C (41°F and 95°F).
•Relative humidity should be 30 to 90 percent.
•As the unit may become hot during operation,
always leave sufficient space above the unit for
ventilation. Do not install this unit in a confined
space such as a bookcase, and do not put anything
on top of the unit.
•Avoid installing this unit on top of any heatgenerating electrical device such as a power
amplifier.
•Make sure that the unit is mounted in a level
position for correct operation.
•The voltage supplied to the unit should match
the voltage as printed on the rear panel. If you
are in any doubt regarding this matter, consult an
electrician.
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 player sit for one or two hours at the new room
temperature before using.
Precautions for handling CF cards and USB storage
Compact Flash (CF) cards and USB storage devices
are manufactured with precision. In order to prevent
damage to the card, card slot, USB device or USB
port, please observe the following precautions when
handling them.
•Do not keep them in extremely hot or cold
environments.
•Do not keep them in extremely humid
environments.
Rack-mounting the unit
Use the supplied rack-mounting kit to mount the unit
in a standard 19-inch rack, as shown below. Remove
the feet of the unit before mounting.
NOTE
• Leave 1U of space above the unit for ventilation.
• Allow at least 10 cm (4 in) at the rear of the unit for
ventilation.

be played is determined by the playback modes and
repeat settings and could be the same as the current
track.
Auto Cue
When enabled, entering the ready-to-play transport
state, or using the SKIP keys to move to a new track,
will cause the HD-R1 to cue up the track; that is, the
HD-R1 will look ahead for audio that exceeds the
given threshold and pause the transport at that point.
The choices are Off, -72 dBFS, -66 dBFS,
-60 dBFS, -54 dBFS, -48 dBFS, -42
dBFS, -36 dBFS, -30 dBFS, -24 dBFS.
Off disables the Auto Cue function. All other settings
(dBFS values) enable the Auto Cue function with
the selected value as the threshold at which the unit
recognizes the start of the sound. For example, if –36
dBFS is selected, the unit cues to the point in the track
just before a sound of at least –36 dBFS.
This is especially useful together with Auto
Ready, where the combination causes each track to
play, then automatically cue up the next track where
the audio passes the specified threshold level so that
it is waiting to be triggered (by the PLAY button) from
ready-to-play mode.

5–Parallel Interface
The parallel port (25-pin D-sub connector on the rear
panel) can be used to remotely control the HD-R1’s
playback using logic signals. By default, the input
signals are active low (normally high). Each input pin
has a built-in 10 kΩ pull-up resistor to 3.3V. Closing
a switch between an input pin and ground (pins 23
and 24) normally activates that input by pulling
it low. If needed, the polarity of the input signals
can be changed using Main Menu ˘ System
Settings ˘ Parallel Port ˘ Input
Polarity.
The HD-R1’s busy status is communicated using
internal, solid-state relays to make or break a
connection between two pins on the parallel port.
There are two busy relays. They can be configured as
normally-open or normally-closed, and may indicate
a variety of conditions depending on the settings
found at Main Menu ˘ System Settings ˘
Parallel Port. These include indicating when
the HD-R1 status is Playback, Recording,
Finished, Ducking, CF Door or Media
Full.
A switch connection applied between pin 17 and
ground (pins 23 and 24) is equivalent to pressing the
STOP key with the default “Active Low” parallel port
polarity.
External play has three modes: Direct Play,
Binary Play, and Program Play. This
mode is set using Main Menu ˘ System
Settings ˘ Parallel Port ˘
Parallel Mode. Each mode interprets the input
signals differently.

5–Parallel Interface
Direct play
In direct play mode, input pins 1 though 16 control
playback of the currently loaded playlist’s first 16
tracks, respectively. The exact playback behavior can
be customized on a per-track basis using the playlist
track settings found in each playlist entry menu under
the Parallel Control submenu. (Please refer
to the Edit Playlist section of this document.)
The following descriptions assume that the input
signal is active when a button is pressed.
If Playback Mode is not set to Playlist,
the first 16 tracks, as determined by the current
Playback Mode, will be triggered in the
manner determined by the settings found under Main
Menu ˘ System Settings ˘ Playlist
Defaults ˘ Interruptible.
NOTE
Direct Play operates by SINGLE playback mode.
Binary play
Binary play mode works exactly like direct play
mode, except that input pins 1-10 are interpreted as
a binary number. This enables the triggering of up
to 1023 different tracks. In the idle state, the signals
fed into pins 1-10 must be inactive as determined`by
Main Menu ˘ System Settings ˘
Parallel Port ˘ Input Polarity.
If
any of the signals change state, the HD-R1 will wait
until all 10 signals have been stable for 250 ms before
capturing their state to yield a binary number. An
active signal is interpreted as a binary “1”. This binary
number will designate the track that is to be played.
NOTE
Binary Play operates by SINGLE playback mode.
Program play
Program play simply provides a way to control the
transport keys via the parallel port. It functions with
any Playback Mode. An active signal on pin
13 is equivalent to pressing the PLAY key. An active
signal on pins 14 or 15 is equivalent to pressing SKIP
≤ or SKIP µ keys, respectively. An active signal
on pin 12 will change to the previous folder/playlist
in alphabetical order. An active signal on pin 16 will
change to the next folder/playlist in alphabetical order.
An active signal on pin 17 is the same as pressing
STOP.

6–RS-232C Serial Interface
The HD-R1 is equipped with a 9-pin RS-232C port,
capable of receiving commands and sending status
information. The commands cover all transport
functions and a majority of settings. A document
detailing the HD-R1’s serial control protocol can be
downloaded from TASCAM’s web site.
