Re: Akai MPX8 "Sample Player" Teardown

That is so funny! I have just pulled mine apart, searched for the processor and ended up here! I've just put mine back together, no point as your insight is great! I'm trying to figure out how to add a MIDI program change to control the wheel remotely, but because the unit stays on the last setting...

Re: ADAT

I know a couple people who use DAT and ADAT still, I wouldn't mind getting something faster than MiniDisc machines.

Re: This is what happens when you put Casio SK-1 Rom in Kawa

A photo or two might clear things up to those curious how the connection worked. does an SK1 has socketed chips? Or do you have to carefully desolder them? I'm still not clear if he is talking about roms in the gamer sense (I download SNES roms that I can play on a SNES emulator, Super Mario on a M...

Re: Loading MIDI patches without a computer?

Get Ancient Laptop and a midi-usb cable, use MIDI-OX to save and send sysex patches. Default patches: http://nuxmicromedia.tripod.com/files/DX21.zip I wouldn't recommend the tape cable due to the fact that its $100, ancient technology and a midi-usb adaptor Like Roland UM-One can be had from about $...

This is what happens when you put Casio SK-1 Rom in Kawai K3

Haha! I found the remnants of an old Casio SK-1 Motherboard and decided to see what would happen if I popped the ROM from that into my K3, the results are interesting to say the least; The First waveform seems to be a nice 8 bit Saw kind of "Cheap Toy Piano" type sound, the second working waveform i...

Re: Akai MPX8 "Sample Player" Teardown

Hi, It's really cool that you opened up the MPX8 :shock:. I was thinking of buying one but the main thing that put me off is that there is no battery power and people said the jog/data wheel is not great. Based on your pictures I guess there could be room for an internal lipo battery and charging c...

Re: Akai MPX8 "Sample Player" Teardown

With a little messing with Audacity you can squeeze a whole average dance track into 8bit PCM @ 22khz :D Its a fun way to use one of the pads, as you can play along with a track :D 8-bit PCM: https://www.mediafire.com/?ab482j9j1ljfeal It takes damn forever to load but the cool thing is it will keep ...

Re: Akai MPX8 "Sample Player" Teardown

Update: I found a nifty Pad calibration menu if you hold select + and volume -,
My Velocities seem to go between 5 and 125.

It made the pads a bit more sensitive! :D

Re: Akai MPX8 "Sample Player" Teardown

Very cool thread! I don't know much at all when it comes to bending and stuff like that but how likely do you think it would be that an overdrive knob or switch could be added? I use mine strictly as a drum module and that would just be amazing. In any case, looking forward to anything you find her...

Akai MPX8 "Sample Player" Teardown

First off, this ain't no review, this is an electronic biopsy. Ok. so I picked up this little bugger for about $100 because it seemed like a neato drum machine. http://i57.tinypic.com/214a9sp.jpg Curiously, knowing Akai and their lazy however effective design ideals of "Lets grab a bunch of off the ...

Re: Roland S-750 - Worth it?

I got one for $25 last spring with 2 boxes of sample floppies. I've never seen anyone ask for anything close to $450 for one. I'm going to attempt talking it down, I wouldn't mind $450 if it was in absolute mint-in-box shape with the original monitor. but its literally just the unit and a bunch of ...

Re: Roland S-750 - Worth it?

Well, In light of knowing the price is steep, I think what I'm going to do is honestly leave my $100 deposit on it till next payday, then buy something else. It is a pretty cool looking box, but its not complete enough to warrant the $450 for it, Also, I really don't have any more room for it :D htt...
