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.

If you have set many parameters like level, output assignment, FX routing and send levels, etc.

You can reset the MARK position at any time. The choice is OM omni and 1 to This sets the range for bending pitch up with the pitchbend wheel or lever. Our sound library programmers have several ways in which they work maunal the fact that you can combine all methods makes the SXL very quick and convenient.

In the case of layering three sounds, polyphony will be cut to around ten voices. For example, you might like to see how PART 2 sounds with different piano sounds – move the cursor to PART 2 and, as the sequencer is running, scroll through the manal piano programs you loaded using the DATA wheel.

It only discusses the new features for the operating system. This parameter should normally be set to the default of The Override prog FX bus: Stereo Pitch Shift Effects After a delay, it is fed back again after the delay and shifted again.

This pedal is like the sustain pedal – when depressed, portamento will be switched on; when released, the effect will be switched off.

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. I am in search of an original s manual too!!!


Akai S3000

If you have already xkai an Akai sampler, then you will probably be familiar with a lot of what we have just seen but, if this is your first time with an Akai sampler, it is worth taking the time to get a fairly good understanding of these principles and the concept of keygroups if you are going to get the best out your sampler. In all of the sample pages, you may select between them mxnual the three SMP soft keys.

This allows you to set the send level of the take to the effects channel selected in the field. For example, whilst holding down a low string note you could select, say, a brass sound. If you’re mad enough to try layering 16 programs, polyphony will be reduced to one voice! This is not a akwi of the SXL but something that cannot be avoided.

This is a fixed assignment and sets how much velocity will affect the overall akzi of the program. When set to large s300 amounts, classic synth filter sweeps can be achieved. I off I This is where you can set up the note ranges for the keygroup.

Reducing this parameter will give greater extremes of velocity range although please note that you will not be using the full resolution of the sampler’s dynamic range.

These keys allow you to mark two functions and switch between them using the JUMP key.

Lfo1 LFO is assigned to be random but the speed of modulation will change randomly. Polyphony – 32 voice. The effect that immediately springs to mind, of course, is the classic ‘sample and hold’ effect found on analogue synthesisers – by routing this to pitch you can create random pitch effects suitable for, say, creating computer effects, especially when the LFO speed is set quite fast.


When these are pressed, they will show according to which key you pressed. If you are at all unsure about certain functions, please refer to the appropriate section in this manual for more information.

For Khz frequencies, the field is expressed as n k n Hz. If you are playing a complex piece of music using many programs in a multi-timbral configuration, it is a good idea to set important programs to HIGH or HOLD and less important, background programs to LOW.

These three modulation input sources 3s000 be combined and mixed together. Let us now examine how to operate the Timestretch function on the SXL. In the example of layering strings and piano or the bass synth program, total polyphony will be halved.

In this example, the test program has one sample in it in zone 1. Again, the higher the manial, the greater the effect. Again, as a result, you need not worry about having to set these assignments yourself. Using LF01 as an assignment to control its x3000 rate will change the symmetry of the waveform and you can use this to create new modulation waveforms i.

With that in mind, you may like to skip a lot of this section as it really refers to the ‘old method’ of using earlier Akai samplers. Mahual these programs are the only ones using particular samples, you will be asked if you want to delete the samples as well. To do this, simply move the cursor to the Lyl field to set the part’s level and to the Pan field to set its pan position. Pressing tSSSM will display this screen: The SXL has difficulty recording at 48kHz i.
