YOU WILL HAVE ACCESS TO FOUR 480MB HARD DRIVES. ON SCSI IDs 2, 3, 4 AND 5.
This listing comes also with one 2GB Micro SD Card, formatted and ready to go. Completely silent operation: no fans, no noise, no heat! Upgrading your S3000XL to an SD Card based hard drive is the most time-saving and worthwhile investment you can make! Forget about floppy emulators: they are too fiddly and slow for professional use.
Why a hard drive instead of a floppy emulator? Because if a sample is larger than the size of a floppy disk (1.4MB) you will NOT be able to save it. Floppy emulators have the same limitations as real floppies. Akai samplers cannot split a sample across floppy disks! BEWARE OF SCSI2SD V6 CARDS!
A solution based on the SCSI2SD V5 adapter is the best you can get! These cards are now extremely hard to find and very expensive because the latest V6 is not fully compatible with the S3000XL.
This external solution will give you. FOUR HARD DRIVES ON ONE SD / Micro SD CARD! SCSI2SD V5 ADAPTER WITH SOLID BUT LIGHTWEIGHT SCSI CASE. FULL 100% S3000XL / S3200XL COMPATIBILITY. USE MICRO SD OR FULL SIZE SD CARDS.EXTERNAL POWER AND PROGRAMMING CABLE. SCSI2SD ADAPTER V5 - 100% AKAI ROLAND EMU YAMAHA KORG COMPATIBLE. EXTERNAL SD / MICRO SD ADAPTER. EXTERNAL POWER / PROGRAMMING USB CABLE. (S3000XL and S3200XL do not require any power, just connect the included SCSI cable). SCSI CABLE FOR AKAI S3000XL / S32000XL. 2GB MicroSD pre-formatted and split over four separate 480MB partitions. This will give you four hard drives on your AKAI on IDs 2, 3, 4 and 5.
I built three of these units (see pictures), one of them as rack mount (not for sale). This is my spare and has never been used except for testing. This setup will also work with Roland, Yamaha and Ensoniq samplers with SCSI connectors. I have tested these SCSI2SD V5 cards on all of the above. I have used this setup also with hard disk recorders like the Korg D1600 and can be set up as recording, backup or WAV transfer drive.
