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.

Similarly, if you do not like synthesisers and prefer instead to use the SXL for the reproduction of high quality samples of acoustic instruments again, you need not concern yourself with these functions. This function is useful when you have a small, short, single cycle loop that has latched onto some strange, discordant aspect of mwnual sound and is slightly out of tune with the rest of it.

Bypeterpiper Fri Dec 19, 7: You can, of course, change the default selection from Pressure to anything you like simply by placing the cursor where it says Pressure and scrolling through the modulation options. This is done in the PRIO rity page: Page This and the other “! It can also akal effectively used on solo and ensemble strings and brass. To overcome the abrupt tonal discrepancies sometimes experienced when two different samples are placed ‘side by side’ on the keyboard, positional keygroup crossfading can be used for a smoother transition.

I am in search of an original s manual too!!! Similarly, with fretless bass, the portamento pedal may be used to slide notes whenever you please. If the samples contained in the program are used elsewhere in other programs, you will not receive this prompt as it is assumed you don’t want to lose these samples.

The parameters are very simple and are as follows.

These are the pieces of raw digital audio that are always the basis of any sound in the SXL. These modulation sources are routed to their destinations in a group of pages at the end of the program Each keygroup has these modulation facilities available separately allowing an enormous amount of flexibility and this, combined with the all the other PROGRAM EDIT functions should keep you happy for a long time!


The most radical feature about these akaai samplers is that they are very synth-like.

Of course, you may stack more than two programs on top of each other in the multi. To do this, simply assign all the relevant keygroups to the same Mute Group. The same may be done with RV4 using FX2.

This will produce the classic auto panner effect with the sound gradually moving between left and right at a rate set by LFO 2. This takes you the ‘naming mode’ where you may name samples, programs, effects, etc. Many interesting things are possible when modulating LF01 with this LFO – at extreme settings you can make LFOI’s modulation speed up and slow down for special sound effects or synth sounds but, if you’re trying to breathe some life into some dead string samples, for example, you may like to use LF02 to slightly modulate LF01 thereby affecting the vibrato very subtly so as mnaual eliminate the inherent ‘cyclicness’ of LFO modulation.

The default for this parameter is This and the other “! You may want to totally re- program the sound or create a new program for the latest batch of samples you have made. By assigning your snare drum into a mute group, you may re-create this effect. If a program’s priority is set to HOLD, notes from this program can only be aksi by the same program.

Please copy the displayed number into the box to post: The best way to learn how this works is to practise; after a short time, it should become second nature.


Overlapping And Crossfading Keygroups If you have already owned an Akai sampler, then you will probably be familiar with a lot of what we janual 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.

Been using these since the mid 90s. The effect of single triggering is that if you hold one note and play another, the pitch changes to the new note but the attack of the new note is not re-triggered. When you use the disk record functions for the first time or use a freshly formatted disk, this field will show 0.

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. The parameters for LF01 are as follows: Its inclusion here is mostly for historical purposes. Of course, you may select other modulation options for these inputs.

Akai S non-XL manual I’ve searched and searched for this manual, to no avail Deleting Samples Akkai or F8 accordingly. Even with 32 Megabytes of RAM installed, there will be occasions where you need to squeeze that little bit more out of the samplers internal memory.

Env1 Use this to create pitch sweeps that vary according to maual sounds overall level. 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.
