Re: Korg MS-20 Mini / MC 303 - Stab Beat

Re: Connecting Akai S2000 to Novation Launchpad

I can't say for sure but if you have a USB to Midi convertor cable it should work.
I hooked a MPD26 up to my S5000, that I borrowed from a friend used that for a while to see if I would like it for drums better then a Keyboard. same concept ... I think.

Re: AKAI S5000, reading MPC 3000 Disk?

On one of the many MPC sites, I found a Compatibility chart, , all the Disk are in SND, I think I'll just put those MPC3000 disk in a storage box for now. the different types of Akai Formats is weird.
