The DPS16 is definetly a unit to check out when money and space is at a premium- and get one with the optional fx board for true portability. Keep those software upgrades coming AKAI!!!! |
Alot of power for the money. Easy to use. Nice interface. Great recording quality. Able to master and back up to compatible CD recorder. 250 virtual tracks.
Effects board a bit 'tame' on certain specialised fx like mastering, guitar and vocal fx. No dedicated libraries for eq and fx settings. No multi-channel digital interface (ADAT or TDIF). Unable to easily mixdown 16 recorded tracks down to 2 tracks inside the DPS16.
