The heart of our studio, the awesome Akai Professional DPS-24
(aka. “the machine with the mojo”)
Sadly out of production now, but still in a class of its own

“But there’s something about the Akai. The analogy isn’t perfect, but suppose
the other recorders are like listening to a Pro Tools HD system straight off
the computer. The Akai is closer to that big-rock SSL console sound.”
- Stephen Fortner, Keyboard Magazine
