*Just needs a new 1gb Iomega Jaz disk. As I’ve taken my one out cos it still has my files on it. They’re only a tenner on eBay.*
So simple to use, just make a new project, select what track you want to record on plug in the press record and play then your rolling.
Lots of demos on YouTube and there’s a pdf instruction manual somewhere on google.
Sound quality is lovely for digital, sounds crisp. Recorded a couple of albums on one of these and it’s so much more fun than recording on computer and a lot more reliable than recording on tape.
Got this one as a spare in case my one ever stopped working but it’s still going strong and this one is just taking up space! “ Click here to search for MPCs on eBay

The DPS12 has the following features:
• The DPS12 includes a hard disk recorder that enables you to perform 12-track recording/playback, and a 20-
channel digital mixer. You can record and mix down on a single DPS12 as if you were using a multitrack
• The DPS12 provides you with 12 recording/playback tracks (physical tracks) and 250 data storage tracks
(virtual tracks). Switching among virtual tracks that are assigned to physical tracks allows you to record
multiple takes of the same part or phrase and later select the best take for mixdown.
• The mixer section is fully loaded with EQ, Pan, two AUX sends, and Level capabilities. In addition to 12
TRACK MIX channels that control the output from the recorder tracks, 8 THRU MIX channels are available to
directly control input signals from the INPUT jacks.You can mix down the signal from a connected synthesizer,
tone module, and/or external effect processor while playing back 12 tracks on the recorder section” Click here to search for MPCs on eBay
