Akai Disc Recorders

From Chace Audio

Akai Disc Recorders, such as the DD8+ and DD16 are stand-alone digital audio recorders manufactured by Akai Professional, LLC. The DD8+ can playback and record up to 8 audio tracks onto magneto optical discs or removable SCSI hard drives, whereas the DD16 can playback up to 16 audio tracks but does not have any record capabilities. Audio recorded using Akai formatted discs cannot be readily imported into another digital audio workstation (DAW) without a conversion or a real-time playback. However, file conversions are prone to error as they must be performed using a third-party utility and often result in digital audio errors such as glitches and mutes.

Akai Disc Recorders were designed for use during re-recording mixes during the 1990s to replace traditional magnetic dubbers and are still in use today.
