Akai s5000 - Replacing floppy with int JAZ drive

Hi all You're all probably sick to death of my s5000 posts by now but I have one small question so please indulge me... I have an internal Iomega Jaz drive and I want to use that instead of the floppy drive in my s5000. According to the blurb (Akai and VSE blurb), it's possible to swap out the flopp...

Re: Roland 909 Day

Personally, I'd like it if Roland decided to make a batch of replacement parts for their old legacy synths ... there's tons of old stuff being used but if something goes wrong, it's like trying to service a classic car... parts are harder and harder to find and you have to do all of the work yoursel...

Re: new (old) Akai s5000 sampler

by the way.... you have a Roland JD-900 listed on your gear list... do you mind telling me more about that? ;-) Off the top of my head, it's a brilliant piece of kit ... it sounds FAB (as does the JD800 btw) ... everyone raves about the uncompressed waveforms and suchlike... my hearing isn't anywhe...

new (old) Akai s5000 sampler

couldn't think of a nicer way to celebrate my 50th post by saying I've just received my s5000 in the post :D I haven't had any time to fire it up in anger yet but maybe later tonight or tomorrow. It's in great condition but it doesn't have the USB board or the EB20 FX board ... any advice/opinions o...

Akai s5000/s6000 samples - any difference?

Hi all Can anyone please tell me if there is a difference between Akai s5000 and s6000 samples? Can a s5000 play samples created for a s6000? I'm almost the proud owner of a s5000 and I was just window shopping on ebay for some sample CDs... I came across an Emu library converted to s6000 but I can'...

Re: Best way to repair broken PCB tracks?

Hi I saw a You tube video on this topic a while ago ... there is a special conductive adhesive tape that only conducts in one orientation. For example, if you tear off a strip of tape, it only conducts along the length of the tape but not across the width. This means you don't short out adjacent wir...

Can someone please post another (different ) link to these samples? ... the webpage that is hosting them requires you to like and send a message on facebook ...

Re: What's going on with all the spam?

What's a MIA...? Yeah it's a common acronym in the US. Originally applied to soldiers that that were missing but without a body to comfirm they were dead, they became listed as Missing In Action. After the Vietnam war there were stories (I don't know if true or apocryphal) about POWs never released...

Re: What's going on with all the spam?

I might not know my left from my right here... If the VSE site is dying, is it possible to set up another site from new... run by moderators who are active on this site.... maybe have a vintage synth page and a contemporary synth page. Most of the info on each synth is either public domain or just e...

Re: Accessing an Akai s3200xl via SCSI - question

Hi Vinyl Junkie Thanks for the excellent info ... it's got my head in a spin but there's hope ... I'll try again but Plan B (getting an old XP machine) is looking better and better ... I needed a 64bit OS for my proper work (!!) which means it mucked up all of my old music/recording software .... gr...

Re: Accessing an Akai s3200xl via SCSI - question

Hi Tekhed66, What is it that you want to accomplish? You could look around for Recycle 2.0 This version of the software still has sample dump over SCSI implemented and what I understand from the Akai Hardware Sampler Users on FB is that is works, even with the older S1000 sampler. This is only for ...
