Re: Accessing an Akai s3200xl via SCSI - question

I don't think that will get you anywhere. There never was a way to have the sampler appear as a drive in Windows or Mac. Hi madtheory I'm trying to do this (as per the video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zomIoeNMVk The sampler doesnt appear as a drive ... I'm just trying to get a clear scsi pat...

Re: I Believe In America - new track

It was a brilliant composition and I am addicted to it. Thankful to you for explaining the kind of external instruments used for this wonderful creation. We are waiting for these types of great and beautiful composition. You Sir / Madam, are much too kind ... but I am chuffed and very glad you like...

Re: Accessing an Akai s3200xl via SCSI - question

You need Akai's MESA software to talk to it over SCSI. A quick google turned up a few videos explaining it. I didn't check where to download the software, or that it works in Win7. No... it's a bit deeper than that... There's a missing link somewhere... I think it's to do with the aspi layer but I'...

Accessing an Akai s3200xl via SCSI - question

Hi all Here's a question(s) for those of you living in those dark, scary days of pre-USB... I have a s3200xl and I am trying to access it via SCSI. I have a PCI-e SCSI card in my desktop that I know works under Win7 64 as I can access a SCSI CD drive without problems but I can't use it to talk to my...

Re: I Believe In America - new track

I like this. It's like salt tank meets Jean Michel Jarre meets land of rape and honey. The character in that guy's voice is great too! Who even is that saying "I believe in America?" Hi Ninja Thanks for your comment and I'm glad you like the track :D I confess that I spent too many hours in my form...

Re: when will this trend ever end!?! sampled voices for melo

that PRICK dj snake is at it again with his new piece of turd 'talk' and AGAIN he's using bits of sampled voice for melody, no one wants to hear it i'll kill him if I see him. Your post made me go and listen to Mr Snake ... and ... well, it's complete toss isn't it? I think the bar was set pretty d...

Re: Does anyome here use Wavelab?

I use wavelab - I love it. I have an old edition, and never felt the need to upgrade. Im sure the latest one is excellent. I would aim for the pro so you can get the most longevity out of your purchase, but if it's too expensive and you don't need the extra features, go for the essentials. Hi Ninja...

Does anyome here use Wavelab?

Hi all I saw a U-tube video today where someone uses software called Wavelab to transfer samples to an Akai s3200xl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zomIoeNMVk I was just wondering if anyone here uses this software and which version of the software to use? ... there are two versions to download from...

Re: Sample storage - SCSI stuff and so forth

FWIW I have an Iomega Jaz drive (SCSI) connected to my Akai s3200xl and it works like a dream. The Akai external drive scsi ID is 5 and I have to re-set the scsi number on the Akai to 3 so it sees the external drive each time I boot it up (I had trouble accessing the Jaz drive when the Jaz was set t...

Re: Midi control of a JD990 with a JD800

Hi Cornutt Thanks for your update on the JD800/990 ... I've tried playing around with it with mixed results ... in the end, it's actually easier to just bend down and turn the 'value' knob on the 990 and change patches in the old fashioned way... it would have been great to have 100% control of the ...

Re: JD990 firmware upgrade ... stuck chip??

I've swapped out the chip using my trusty screwdriver .... pins were mostly OK and the new OS chip clicked into place ... best of all, the synth started up again and everything worked 8-)

Re: Midi control of a JD990 with a JD800

I'll play with mine and see, if I can find a card to plug into it... as Sonus said, it should be possible to control it with Bank Select messages. I'm not sure if it requires both bytes to be sent (controller 0 and controller 32). Hi Cornutt That would be great if you could work it out... if you do...
