Just a quick link to my XD-280 Disk Emulator for the S612 which has been proving extremely popular:

Incidentally, I am able to transfer QD disks over to HxC disk images if any 612 owners have large disk collections they want to transfer using a special "hot-swapping" rig I built for the XD-280 project.
As far as I know JF Del Nero has already written a utility to extract the raw samples from the XD-280 disk images.
The new XD-280 system comes with a USB stick pre-loaded with over 150 new samples I made for the project with the aim to add many more over time. I am, however, not willing/able to add legacy commercial samples to the library for obvious reasons.
Incidentally, I think at least some of the original factory samples for the 612 (and certainly for later models) were created by my dear old friend the late Stephen Howell aka Hollow Sun who tragically passed away a few years back.
