This can be very useful in obtaining better expression for piano sounds. You can try alternative piano sounds and hear how they sound.

You will also receive this message if you try to save to a CD-ROM which, of course, is a read-only medium. These pages are accessed by s300 the liHUl key.

The above diagram examples represent only part of the flexible program editing and multi-sampling potential of the SXL. If you play between two overlapping ranges i. To play the demo sequence on the SXL, assuming the akak data disk has been loaded, follow the procedure below.

Thats why I wrote I ONLY found this and give the hint how to search with google to many people dont know about such things like filetype etc. Though some keyboards do not accept or transmit this, assuming a mean value of 64, all AKAI manal provide a full implementation of this function.

You may use this to play the demo sequence that is also supplied on floppy disk with the SXL. This type of program is also suitable for a two way velocity switch – by setting zone 1 of each keygroup to a velocity range of and setting zone 2 toyou could, for example switch between a thumbed bass and a slapped bass or a normal snare hit and a rim shot using velocity.


As a result, the whole format of the directories is completely different.

This takes you the ‘naming mode’ where you may x3000 samples, programs, s000, etc. When recording digitally, the bottom line of the display shows: The same principles a,ai that even with depth: The selection made here also affects the format of the audio as it appears in real- time at the digital audio output i.

The downside to this, however, is that as manua cross into each keygroup, so the samples’ attack will be re-triggered. LF01 may also be a modulation destination and it is possible to modulate its rate, depth and delay. This may or may not be an inconvenience depending on the way you want to work. The default for these parameters is key: Make sure that there is no data which is only stored on the hard disk which you want to keep.

To overcome this, by assigning all the keygroups to the same mute group, although the program is manuual, as you play across each keygroup, so those keygroup’s samples will play in turn and, in the above example, you would be correctly playing the 02 sample on Furthermore, you may have several programs active at any one time and each of these may have a different MIDI channel so that they play multi-timbrally.

You may record audio whilst sequencing ordinary programs and samples allowing you to effectively x3000 onto disk. Byfaze1 Fri Dec 19, 6: This may be useful in a drum program where things like toms, cymbals and some percussion appear at the SSOOOXL’s stereo outputs whilst important drums like bass drum and snare are assigned to appear at individual outputs.

You can also use the numeric keypad for this, setting the program number to a value of between 1 and manusl are MIDI specification limits. The ultimate program, would be for each key to have its own keygroup with each keygroup containing four samples using a four way velocity switch! If a wrist strap or any other such accessory is not supplied, try discharging any static by touching an earthed metal object before handling the boards.


Only that program will be renumbered. Check the heading on this page: Strange though it may seem, you may also use SINGLE mode to set up multi- timbral setups, program layering and key splits. Let’s now have a look at the filter’s parameters. This allows you to control pan position using the modulation wheel. If you create a new sample, this will be created in RAM but if you choose to overwrite the original sample, you will receive the above prompt.

To overcome this, we can overlap keygroups simply by setting their key ranges accordingly: Applies power to the SXL. Now move the cursor to the sample assign field below and select the first sample.

Now turn on the SXL.

For many acoustic instruments, especially string and woodwind sounds, when played quietly, their attack times also change slightly so this parameter can be put to good use. As mentioned, you may avhieve similar results in the MULTI mode where you can create multi-timbral setups, key splits, layered programs and combinations of these very quickly and easily.

When cutting frequencies, you may like to use the control to boost overall level slightly although this may also be accomplished by re-normalising the sound.

When you use the disk record functions for the first time or use a freshly formatted disk, this field will show 0.
