MESA: File format for the Akai S3000, separate files for the programs
(.s3p) and the samples.
To get samples in to your computer is easy. On Mac (which is what I
use), I open CDXtract.
I then insert the Roland CD-ROM, and when the Mac gives me an alert,
I choose <ignore>
I then select <Search for sampler discs> in CDXtract, and it finds
the CD, and displays all the data on the CD. It's then just a matter
of choosing what you want to convert.
You can also create new multi-layered programs, combine programs with
crossfades or velocity switches and preview samples directly in the
I think there's a demo which you can test for yourself...

> But would any DAC convert the two digital outs to four audio outs? :)
I guess so: each digital out will be stereo, so that's equivalent to
for analog audio outputs. But it seems like a reasonable buy because
I don't know if there are any convenient converters that would do the
simple 2 digital to 4 analog, and if that's what you want and all you
need, why not go for it?
This is my first post to the group.
Here's my situation.
I have a working bootable Syquest 270MB cart and drive.
I have an S760 set to boot from the floppy.
I have a damaged boot floppy.
Am I stuck ? It won't boot.
