An LC display shows meters and helps editing settings and locate points. The DP-01 has a USB 2.0 jack for file backup, importing and exporting tracks and transferring mixes to a computer. There are analogue RCA line outputs, an SPDIF optical line output, stereo return, headphone out with level control and a MIDI out for MIDI Timecode or MIDI Clock. Track editing functions include cut, copy, paste, move, erase, silence and multiple levels of undo/redo.
The DP-01FX adds XLR microphone inputs with phantom power for connecting professional condenser microphones, a multi-effects processor for adding effects to an instrument during recording and a reverb processor for adding effects during a mix.
