Akai S3000 storage/backup in the 21st century?
not a massively exciting subject i know, but one i could use some help with...

having gone back to my hardware roots and plumbed in all my old gear very recently, i can honestly say i still fckin love my old akai sampler!! i even felt comfortable enough to start sampling and chopping breaks again on it today. this is all well and good, and i like the 'limiting' feeling that goes with it, pushing you to work with what you have etc, but limitations when it comes to saving work are not so attrac

A/D converters : Akai MPC2000XL vs. E-MU 1212M
I tried this before rather casually, and I found that the recording I took with the 1212M had a few faint "bloops" similar to what you hear in damaged mp3 & mpg files. Also, I was comparing a 1-2 second sample vs a 30 min recording, which the MPC could never do.

so this time around what should I do?
what are all the parameters I can test?
what programs/plugins should I use?

AKAI groove and velocity templates for cubase?
Hey all,

I'm sure many of you know, I've been a staunch proponent of 'in the box' production methods for some time.

I had a guy talking to me at work the other day about the ups and downs of MPC vs. computer based beat production.

I was saying (as usual Teef ) that I felt like the computer, in combination with a pad based mpc style controller, was a more 'complete' system, in that, you can accomplish the same kind of sample treatment and input method. Beyond that, you have all

akai s2000 SCSI setup
have it all hooked up so that the scsi card is recognizing the s2000, tried reading as much about scsi in the s2000's manual (i 'think' i have it setup on the right id channel) when i send a sample within soundforge it seems to be picking up the s2000 and will send, but nothing gets to the sampler...

is there some more setting up on the s2000 i have to do?

the Akai sampler thread
I just hit up an s2000 thread like 5 times today - figured I 'd just start a thread for Akai owners.

hooked up my S5000 to my PC w/ an Adaptec ATA-2940 SCSI card.
Flip on my sampler and it finds the internal hard drive without a problem.
flip on my pc. hit Ctrl+A and enter the SCSI config screen. I enter the SCSI utilities menu and it scans for SCSI devices. Finds the ATA-2940 SCSI at device #7 and nothing else.
scan for new drives from the S5000 and POW! it crashes.
reboot - exit and save t
