You will notice that in all SMP pages, as you play, a small dot appears alongside the zn field to signify which zone is playing – this is useful in identifying which sample is playing in a complex velocity switched program. By layering two programs and amai opposite values i.

Assignable Program Modulation As mentioned above, as an alternative to turning the DATA control, you can also use the numeric keypad for direct entry of data. The effect the loudness modulation parameters have on the overall loudness of the program depends on the modulation source you select.

You may change the default modulation source from Key to anything you like simply by placing the cursor where it says Key and scrolling through the modulation options.

Single trigger playback to emulate old monophonic synths and solo instruments’ playing styles. A bass drum, however, which has very few upper harmonics, could feasibly be sampled at 20kHz. As you adjust the LOW and HIGH parameters for a keygroup, you will see its range depicted in the graphic representation of the keyboard to the screen’s left.

If a number such as Muting Effects When these are pressed, they will show according to which key you pressed.

Pressing will load the chosen file s into memory without deleting anything first. Only one sample is assigned and the other keygroups remain unchanged even if ALL is selected. XOVER effect, the maximum delay time you can set is halved. The 40 X 8 character display shows parameters and values and displays the ‘soft’ keys’ function and graphic display of waveforms for sample editing, etc.

It is necessary to make a copy for two reasons – firstly, the SXL needs the original data to get the data to insert.

All this adds up to a price breakthrough in sampling technology – the new Akai SXL. This block of keys moves the cursor up, down and left and right around the screen.

You can layer three parts if you wish. The way the multi works means that once you have set the parameters for any of the parts, they remain constant regardless of which sound you place in them and you do not have to keep resetting them manually all the time.

Multi-sampling is the technique where you take several samples of one instrument across its range or where you take several samples of different instruments such as drums, for example.

This page allows you to set various MIDI parameters for each program. This allows you to set the filters cutoff frequency. One of the beauties of the Akai samplers is that there are no restrictions on what you do with samples – any sample can be placed into any keygroup in any program. In all of the sample pages, ss3000xl may select between them via the three SMP soft keys.

You could use this type of assignment for playing back zkai samples where the left and right samples are assigned to their own zones 1 and 2 respectively in one keygroup and each zone is panned hard left and hard right. The other parameters manhal If the optional EB16 multi-effects processor is installed, the outputs of the four effects channels are also mixed here.

Assigning Programs To Parts At a more advanced level, you could use the SONG mode to play back a whole series of entire songs recorded and edited this way and the SONG mode can be a convenient method of sequencing the tracks on an album. 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.


In fact, it is a good idea to regularly save your work as you are working. The same, of course, can be done with the string part. If you change your mind and do not wish to renumber any programs, simply press without pressing F3, F4, F5 or F6.

At first, this may seem a bit strange to allow this but this does enable you to crossfade between programs using velocity – i. Another way to input notes is directly from the keyboard. And don’t forget that layering samples in zones and panning them to extreme hard left and right will cause the two samples to crossover in the stereo image when these effects are applied. Using this, any modulation source may manuall routed to virtually any control input.

The possibilities are almost mwnual up to the 16 part limit in fact!
