Sound Quality
Recording quality is good - no compression like the Roland stuff.
*here's why i wrote this review* it is a reliable unit, but the backlit display has a problem. this is the second one ive owned and they both had bad displays. I traced the problem to a small neon bulb at the bottom of the display. I am waiting to hear from Akai about a part number. PS. I wouldnt recommend an attempt at replacing this bulb unless you have a good deal of experience with repairing/disassembling electronic equipment (which I do) it was not an easy task suitable for an amateur.
General Comments
I have two DPS12, waiting to get display fixed on one of them. I bought the second because they are cheap now & I liked my 1st one. Im going to try linking them via MIDI for 24 tracks. Id prob replace with a DPS24 eventually but this is a cheaper alternative.
