UTILIZATION

Only the internal effects section requires some head scratching, the rest is intuitive trs. Personally I went from nothing to the DPS 12 and I got into it in an APRS afternoon.

Yes, the screen is very practical and clear menus + cursor keys, shortcuts, wheel = nothing is missing.
- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
FR 150 pages. in which plunges prcises only for questions or if you want to use functions "shoots".

SOUNDS

- The A / D and D / A are transparent?
The converters are sufficient. Is it possible to offer high-end converters trs on a machine whose purpose is to couraging an dmo? It would be a waste or marketing.
Eventually we go back a layer (see features) with an external processor or plugin will be guaranteed a clean heat and sufficient dynamic as well.
For those who require more hours of studio rent, but in the DPS12 crneau I put 10/10.

IDEM and the more one has a wide range of effects (option really necessary) for the settings which is ditable. EQ parameter.

The sound is lgrement compress the limit can help.

6.
I RALIS pieces really correct it with an sm58 and a local Drapp.

Solution complte, nomadic (mine is a fly can save repeated from room-indoors).
To make even better as it is possible to make its decision in good conditions

I found that the equivalent of the silent machines Chres more. If you have an ear and a 12 DPS was all for a clean Submitted.
- How do you report qualitprix?
