Akai Professional S3200 Digital Sampler

   (0 reviews)

The S3200XL features 32-voice polyphony, expandable memory, DSP functions, and, using the S3200XL’s resonant lowpass filters, multiple LFOs, envelope generators and extensive modulation possibilities, this sampler can double as a first class synthesiser as well.

New functions like the new MULTI mode of operation simplifies multi-timbral sequencing and layering. The S3200XL also includes a multieffects 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. Also included is a second bank of
multi-mode resonant filters for sophisticated tonal processing.

Bundled with the S3200XL 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 S3200XL giving you access to thousands of sounds on floppy disk, hard disk, removable cartridges, MO disks and CD-ROM. The ability to read CD ROMs made for other manufacturer's samplers gives access to an even further range of sounds.
