Akai Professional CD3000XL MIDI Digital Sampler

   (0 reviews)

The S3000XL features 32-voice polyphony, expandable memory, DSP functions, etc., and using the S3000XL’s resonant lowpass filters, multiple LFOs, envelope generators and extensive modulation possibilities, your new sampler can double as a first class synthesiser as well.

Certain new functions are introduced in the S3000XL In software, the new MULTI mode of operation simplifies multi-timbral sequencing and layering whilst hardware options include a multi-effects processor that offers no less than four channels that include two multi-effects channels with distortion, EQ, ring modulation, modulation effects such as chorus, flanging, pitch shifting, auto panning and rotary speaker effects plus delay and reverb. Two ‘spare’ channels of reverb are also available providing a total of four reverbs. Add to this the second bank of optional resonant multi-mode filters and you can see that the S3000XL is a sampler that can grow with your needs.

Bundled with the S3000XL is a software application for the Macintosh™ computer that allows you to operate the sampler from your Macintosh allowing large screen operation of waveform and program editing, sophisticated organisation of your sound library on the Macintosh as well as the ability to integrate your sampler more conveniently with your computer sequencer.

Naturally, all sound library developed for the Akai S900, S950, S1000, S1100, S2000 and the S3000 range of samplers is compatible in the S3000XL giving you access to thousands of sounds on floppy disk, hard disk, removable cartridges, MO disks and CDROM. The ability to read CD ROMs made for other manufacturer's samplers gives access to an even further range of sounds.
