Inquiring minds are curious. I still have my DPS16. The I/O is dreadful but the preamps are fine, fine, fine.
So - anyone else still using the DPS16 or the DPS24(drool)?

DPS12i was my first foray into digital and replaced (sort of) my Tascam 4-track tape recorder.

I actually only sold it a year ago after several years of neglect... Recently bought an mpc500 so regretting that now...

I seem to be acquiring more and more hardware recently and have considered dropping a load on the DPS24 but more likely to go for a Yamaha AW4416 if I go that route...

Most of my stuff starts in Maschine so I'd have to midi up and track out...
