Total professional package
Sure, the DPS24 is amazing for the musician who wants to record all their songs. Any hobbyist recording person will be satisfied for years with this unit- perhaps even for life. It leaves you wanting for nothing. From the simplest twelve track recordings, all the way up to fourty, fifty, or higher track counts- the DPS24 can do it all. You are truly only limited by your imagination. Get as deep as you want.
Now, for professional studio use, you begin to REALLY see just how amazingly well thought out the design is, and how Akai really worked hard to include features that a studio for hire needs on a daily basis- features you won't find from the prosumer Roland series or Korg. Things like uncompressed recording at 24 bit with full track count available. Studio foldback mix ability with built in talk back mic- a feature that the DPS24 INCLUDES! Total open architecture for routing options. You can literally get a signal routed anywhere in this thing, and more importantly, OUT of the thing! Twenty four channel ADAT- HUGE! Inserts. Monitoring is pro featured- mains/nears/studio, and yes MONO, all with the touch of a button! USB multi-file transfering to the computer. A computer GUI so you can see your whole project on the computer monitor, as well as a full meter bridge. These are just a few features that put the DPS24 in another league from the prosumer offerings. It's a user friendly tracker for the recording musician, and a fully professional console for pro studio use. You want the best? Akai DPS24. Nuff said.
