The FIND function does not work with floppy disks. It is only when you are using LF01 to apply a constant vibrato or for something other than vibrato in specialist applications that you will need to specifically set the depth control here.

No special setup or modification is required. At first, this may seem a bit strange to allow this but this does enable you to crossfade between programs using velocity – i.

This will reset all the parameters described above to their default values and will clear the program name field, leaving it blank.

In this way, very complex mixes can be set up.

Effects Edit However, if for the purposes of the guitar sound, you add distortion and EQ and change the chorus to a flange setting, if there is another program in memory that uses that effect preset for example, a strings programit too will be affected. If the multi always adopted the program’s parameters when a sound is assigned to a part, selecting a new piano sound in this example would reset the part’s pan and level parameters and you would then have to adjust these parameters.

OFF, you will be able to monitor any other programs that share the same number. Its not just becasue is Hardly inspiring is it?


Akai S3000

Using this, any modulation source may be routed to virtually any control input. After you have loaded the first program and its associated samples, just use LOAD so that the new programs you load are added to the programs in memory. Here you w3000 presented with four choices. Of course, you may stack more than two programs on top of each other in the multi.

You could route aftertouch to control the panning’s LFO speed to emulate the sound of a rotary speaker speeding up and slowing down in a classic rock organ qkai. These may be set by moving the cursor to them and using the DATA control to input notes or, when displaying the notes numerically, you may type in a number from the numeric keypad.

Only the DATA control may be used.

Email supplied but hidden Activity: After a few seconds, the new sample will be shown which may be played in the usual way. Program Editing With 2 low frequency oscillators LFOsADSR and multi-stage envelope generators, resonant manula, panning and more, the SXL can radically transform manuaal sound offering the creative musician and programmer endless possibilities.

This selects keyboard position as the modulation control source. The same may be done with RV4 using FX2. This will only renumber the currently selected program.


The above diagram examples represent only part of the flexible program editing and multi-sampling potential of the SXL. This next screen shows a typical program with several keygroups side by side.

Please note, that for either method, if you record or load you samples in the order they are to be assigned, then the process is even quicker. Deleting samples is destructive.

In all of the sample pages, you may select between them via the three SMP soft k eys. For editing programs, samples and effects.


The range is semitones. If all this seems very confusing, don’t worry for the moment.

Moving it whilst the note is held will have no effect – it is only its position at the point of note-on that has the effect. When changing sounds, any mixer parameters, effects assignments, etc. You may find the sound of a rotary speaker is enhanced using just a hint of distortion in the distortion section to re-create the overdrive effect commonly found on rock organ sounds.

Such a program may be useful for something like piano or strings which have been sampled on the G of every octave. Those, then, are the master pages w3000 the program where you can set parameters that affect the program as a whole.

Images from Akai S-Series Samplers. In the case where keygroups are layered or overlap, pressing and holding EDIT and repeatedly playing the note will select each keygroup in turn. As an example, you could have five stereo string samples each sampled at G on every octave which could be assigned into such a program.

For example, load all the piano sounds you think you may need one after another so that they are all grouped together in memory. This is suggested as it will make selection and comparison of different sounds in any given part easier. Page If the disk is un-formatted or has become seriously damaged in some way the SXL will tell you This works like pressure and modwheel and allows you to akau and close the filter by moving the pitch bend wheel or lever.
