All this adds up to a price breakthrough in sampling technology – the new Akai SXL. SXL Operator’s Manual Page 1 INTRODUCTION FEATURES. Hi! Is there anybody who have the manuals for the AKAI S and S? I have searched all the net, but came up empty:(I have e-mailed. S Owners Manual download. SI Owners Manual download. SXL Owners Manual download. S Owners Manual.

By applying this LFO in this way to, say, FILTER 1, each note you play may have a different manusl colour and this can be made into quite a dramatic synth effect by setting quite high modulation amounts and high resonance.
The same may be done maunal RV4 using FX2. You can have several multi-timbral setups or layers in memory at any one time and recall them with a single MIDI program change ideal for live work where you may have the backing tracks for all your songs in memory.
NORM is, of course, normal priority and sets standard dynamic voice allocation and note stealing will take place with no particular priority. It is akzi not suitable to simulate tremolando strings, however, using LFO modulation. The multi-stages of ENV2 allow some interesting possibilities as we shall see in a moment.
This sets how much velocity will control the modulation output of ENV2. We will use these sounds as the basis for this tutorial. The parameters are as follows: It is possible to zoom in on the waveform using the key. This will load any operating system that may be manal the disk. Programs or groups manuall programs may be assigned to these outputs for mixing on a mixing console.
Part 1 Drums Part 2 Piano Part 3 Bass Part 4 Strings After you have loaded manial suitable mamual and assigned them, you should end up with something like this: The main LOAD page looks something like this: The selection made here also affects the format of the audio as it appears in real- time at the digital audio output i.
The options available to you are: Only amnual program will be renumbered. If you intend to use LF01 for something other than vibrato i. SCSI chains that are longer than the specified length may cause data errors and possibly corruption of data. Page 42 The big advantage is that you may mznual older sound library material and use it with no conversion process or editing required.
As mentioned above, as an alternative to turning the DATA control, you can also use the numeric keypad for direct entry of data. You may delete takes from within the DD page. For example, it is possible to set a pan position within a program. To round things off, a3000 keygroup has no less than four zones and a program may ‘look’ something like this: Instead of the snare’s natural decay being allowed to sound, the next hit would cut the previous one dead resulting in a rather unnatural staccato effect.
To cut down on spammers, cookies must be enabled to post comments to this page. 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. Here, samples are made and edited, placed into programs which can be played singly if you wish and these programs can be placed into a multi where several programs my be played together.

This LFO’s extra facilities allow some very odd things to mznual done. The reason for this will normally be that mznual G2 sample is transposed up by four semitones at B2 and so sounds a little brighter whilst the 03 sample is being played 7 semitones down so it may sound a little duller and so, next to each other, especially when playing a scale, the crossover point is not even.
This parameter ignores each programs keygroup ranges and simply imposes a range on the whole program.
To assign a sample, simply move the cursor to this field and scroll through the available samples in memory with the DATA control. Lfo1 LFO is assigned to be random but the speed of modulation will change randomly. This eliminates the need for copying the same sample several times and hence wasting memory to achieve the same effect.
Furthermore, even though a program’s effects channel is recalled when you assign a new program to the multi-timbral setup, the effects preset associated with that effects channel may be different and so cause unpredictable results.

Or perhaps a hard copy? Generally, try to set the TIME control so that the sound has its own distinctive ambient space around it. Reversing Samples Pressing it again will reverse the sample back to its original form.
If you want to be more adventurous, you could use totally separate keygroups for layering synth sound or acoustic sounds, for that matter and each could have different envelope and filter characteristics. S3000 may use this function for expressive phrasing of such instruments as strings, vocal, wind and other such instruments to great effect.
For the first program and samples you load, use the CLEAR option to clear out any junk that may be in memory. However, you may prefer to use the SXL with external effects processors using a mixing console.
For example, in a 7 keygroup mahual program, if you were to start your run on C5 and finish at C2, the sound played on the last note would, in fact, be the C5 sample transposed 3 octaves down – the samples in the other keygroups would not be re-triggered as you cross the keygroup boundaries.
Add your email if you want replies to any question you post – You will receive an email if someone replies! The advantages of using the ‘old Akai’ method are: This sets the delay between a note-on occurring and the effect being introduced. Deleting samples is destructive. It must be said that this page is really an inheritance from earlier Akai samplers when using multi-timbral setups. By layering two programs and setting opposite values i.
This may be useful for laying down vocal parts or guitar, saxophone solos and the like over sequenced backing tracks. SampleVerb in Majual America 4-channel, a3000, multi-effects board.
