Akai GX-912


The new Akai GX-912 master mixdown cassette deck incorporates the latest design advancements to meet the challenge of the most demanding studio applications.

The use of the Super GX 3-Head System offers extended frequency response and dynamic range while also enabling monitoring through the playback head during recording.

A Closed Loop Double Capstan System ensures optimum tape-to-head contact and smooth tape transport at all times. At the heart of the GX-912 is a microcomputer which controls the entire transport mechanism for precise and flawless performance every time.

Operational ease is another feature that makes the GX-912 welcome in the studio. Intro Scan, Quick Memory Search, Instant Program Location System, and other functions are all easily accessible at the feather touch of the front panel push-buttons or from the wireless remote control.

The FL display gives you a bright, highly visible readout of the current status of all important operational settings. The digital electronic tape counter shows the elapsed time, as well as the tape position, and the time remaining.

The GX-912 fits into a 2U standard 19 inch rack mount for fast and simple installation..
