The DR4 ousted the last Revox from recording studios. I regret that the unit has no anti-aliasing system and no band speed selector. I personally prefer version 3. Version 4 has too many virtual tracks that you have to manage with a pen in your hand Version 2 is too restrictive. Did you find this review helpful?

That means making some choices that can stick with you for some time! The first thing associated with the term "hard disk" is a computer.
The computer, a program, and the circuits to run the audio, when put together, manufacturers call "workstations. In a creative approach to low cost, digital recording, Akai has taken its knowledge of building boxes like the DD and applied it to the Akai DR4d hard disk recorder, combining the readily available technology of computer hard disks with four channels of audio electronics into one, sampler sized, three rack space box.
A barrier protected power switch in the upper left hand corner sits atop a headphone jack with a level control and a foot switch jack for punch ins. The headphones receive channels one and three on the left and channels two and four on the right.
The LEDs operate with a peak "hold" indication. Directly under them are the input select keys that choose digital or analog by channel pairs 1 and 2, or 3 and 4. The front panel also sports an Auto Monitor switch and a Rehearsal switch for use during recording. The display, eight LED digits, toggles between Absolute time the total time available on the hard disk , Relative time from where the user set , and BBC bar, beat, clock.
The display is also used for locate points and error messages from the unit itself.
