Really, it’s everything you might expect from a bit system. Though many keyboards do not accept or transmit this, assuming a mean value of 64, all AKAI keyboards provide a full implementation of this function.

Up to Programs can be held in the S’s internal memory. With the plethora of interesting sampling CDs around one of which Akai sell – plug, plugthere is more interest than ever in doing your own sampling. Introduction Front panel controls This section describes the function of the controls on the front panel, and the general principles of operating the S Gear in this article: As this is altered, the length and time of the new stretched sample and the percentage of memory it will occupy are displayed.
