All recording and editing of audio material is performed via the DL1500 Remote Controller - a compact, ergonomically designed control surface that gives the DD1500 its unique personality. Its sense of everything being in just the right place. Dedicated controls are the name of the game (no mouse to be found) with clearly labeled buttons for a host of both common and lesser-used functions. Speed. Ease of use. Intuitive operation.


  • Simultaneously scrub 16 tracks of audio and video - forward or backward, fully locked
  • Connect any combination of DD1500m, DD8 Digital Dubbers - up to a total of 16 machines (up to 256 tracks) - and control them all simultaneously, in perfect synchronization, from a single DL1500 Remote Controller.
