Which one was it?
Akai DPS12. The only one prior to that was Roland's VS880, which was 8 tracks *compressed* audio. The DPS12 was uncompressed audio, 12 tracks, and I could sync/control it via Logic... I saw the news piece in SOS about it, new it was the ideal thing for me, and then trundled up to London to go get one...
(And yes, I had to go back to Akai when all the Jazz drives started dying and were recalled...)
Desmond, I have an old Akai DPS12 that I've been trying to control with Logic but they're having trouble talking to each other. Any chance we could connect over email so I could learn how you made it work?
