It can batch convert CMI samples to WAV, again without loop points, but at least you get the correct sample name and duration all in one go, and you don't have to deal with file headers as audio. I also left them as 8 bit because Kontakt can handle that.
I checked out CMIOS9 but I'm not sure how to use this on the PC. There is no executable file to run in DOS where it runs I presume. Does anyone know if CMIOS9 compiles on a PC or is it for Linux? When files start getting into the .c and .h area, I start to get lost...laugh. Thanks. ( Note I just joined the Yahoo Group for Fairlight for more info ).

@ D-Collector
I'm kind of late to the party on these Fairlight Samples. I'm going to take a stab at some conversions. This is great news!

Thanks! Jim

You are not doing anything wrong. Filefreak went crazy and corrupted all files, main .zip, pictures, mp3, everything. I will have the files up again tomorrow, so check back then! ;)

it boots up to a green screen the lightpen shows a black semi circle on the screen and it moves with the pen, i have had the cmi tested with other boards from another cmi user i believe they are 3 circuit boards need work, 1 drive not working, the cmi guy in Austria said he can fix the boards.

Ok, it all comes down to cost. How much you are willing to spend on the repair/restoration.

Hope you get it up and running.

does anyone know what notes (C,D,E,F...etc) were sampled for these "Fairlight IIx samples" ?

they weren't sampled 'from' a Fairlight, they are the original samples on floppy.

...let me clarify...how do you know what note the "original samples" are so that you can scale it correctly on a keyboard?

...without being able to recognize the note by ear or use a device.
