GUEST,Fullerton Tech: Help connecting cd writer to AKAI DPS12i (3) RE: Tech: Help connecting cd writer to AKAI DPS12i 29 Sep 05

Thank you Mr. Offer.

I can't make the blue clicky maker to work so paste the previous paragraph into your browser .

It will give a list of compatible drives.

Check the DPS 12 forum on Yahoo for operating system issues. This is important. Older DPS12 MAY not work with your CDR.

May I ask why you want to use a CDR - is it for back up or for making CDs?

An easier solution might be to get a SP/DIF convertor - you can connect to digital inputs on good recorders. Including minidisc etc.
They are very cheap and (30) and will be useful well beyond the life of your dps12!! Mine is.

Have you worked out how to mix and use the scenes yet? Its a huge time saver.

A lot of DPS users use a program called Mesa to take files from a DPS to a computer (via a CDR) but it seems like a pain in the *** to me.

Why not mix your songs, take "scene snaps" of your mix and take the DPS to your nearest recording studio with your SP/DIF convertor. Plug in to the Studio- It will be a very quick job. A whole CD should be Two Hours max. If the studio has optical inputs you won't need the sp/dif box!!

Hope this helps.

Let me know how you get on, and if there's anything else I can help you with, well just ask. I check mudcat about twice a day.

Incidentally the input amps on the DPS12 are great - lovely warm signal.
