If a number such as Please ensure that you have saved them to disk before deleting in case you want to come back to them at a later date. Different programs may be selected for editing by scrolling with the DATA control. Multi-timbral setups are more easily created in the new MULTI mode but, if you want to use old method, read on.

This may seem a strange default at first but the reason is to do with the use of the modwheel for vibrato. All other keygroups will be unaffected but all those in mute group 1 will be mutually exclusive – that is, if one is sounding when another akak played, it will be cut.

The FIND function does not work with floppy disks.


This takes you to the OUTPUT page where you may set the program’s overall level, individual output assignment, effects send level, pan position and other parameters. A or BSI approved type. Of course, portamento was also a standard feature on older analogue synths, particularly monophonic ones where it was often called GLIDE and was responsible for the creation of some highly distinctive although often over-used! Each of the elements in a layered or split multi could be assigned to separate outputs where they may be mixed and processed on an external mixing console.

To then select program 26, simply press 6. This allows you to select from three waveforms. As a result, it is vital that you save your work to disk before turning the power off otherwise you will lose your work and, unless previously saved, it will be gone for ever.

More details on setting up key splits is given later in this section. Keygroup Zones The ultimate program, would be for each key to have its own keygroup with each keygroup containing four samples using a four way velocity switch! Bend Pressure Use this instead of modwheel perhaps. You can layer three parts if you wish. Page Once you become familiar with the FIND function, you will find it an invaluable aid to quickly searching for and loading sounds. If the program name is an existing one, the boxed area in the bottom right of the screen will show: We strongly recommend that for such purposes, you use the MULTI mode but retaining these functions ensures compatibility with data created on earlier models.


A program may have as little as one keygroup spanning the entire keyboard or as many as one keygroup for every key each with four samples in them! When this parameter is set to OFF, the portamento pedal will allow you to switch it on or off as you please. For example, on filter or panning sweeps where you want the effect to be gradual as you play, you will want to switch ret rig: NORM is, of course, normal priority and sets standard dynamic voice allocation and note stealing will take place with no particular priority.

For playing up to 16 programs together for multi-timbral sequencing, layering and key splits. You can use an existing program from your sound library that closely resembles the one you wish to create. In a layered string or vocal ensemble, by applying this to just one of the layers, you can create interesting chorus effects as each note has a slightly different detune amount. ME35T and the like.

On single note, you will get a dramatic panning effect as the sound bounces all over the stereo image and in chords, each note will position itself in different positions giving the impression of great depth and spread to the sound. You will note that this is a ‘global’ parameter that affects the whole program and so any keygroups that overlap will be subject to crossfading.

Avoid setting up the SXL in the following locations: If these programs are the only ones using particular samples, you will be asked if you want to delete the samples as well. By setting the pitch to UP: You will note akao at a setting of 99, the program is at maximum level but you will not have any velocity sensitivity.


Akai S3200XL Manuals

You will see a message in the LCD informing you of what is going on. Typically, this will be to set different programs to different MIDI channels for multi- timbral sequencing but you may also use the MULTI mode for layering programs and for key splits.

Because only one MULTI can aai in memory at any one time, you cannot copy the multi file, only rename it. Again, s32000xl higher the value, the greater the effect. Using The Song Mode Selecting The Hard Disk Partition Please check your SCSI cables and that the drive is switched on it does happen! If you are at all unsure about certain functions, please refer to the s3200zl section in this manual for more information.

Load in something sensible. This selects the modulation waveform. Soloing The Current Effect If you change your mind and do not wish to renumber any programs, simply press without pressing F3, F4, F5 or F6. Now, assuming that both programs mahual the same program number i. NORM is, of course, normal priority and, if any note stealing has to take place, this program will be affected no more or less than others with NORM assignment. Less commonly used ones are accessed via the soft keys.

It may be a nuisance to try to write to the disk and find it write protected but it is less of a nuisance than accidentally over-writing a set of your favourite manua, and programs! It is possible to route the same controller twice or three times in some cases to the same destination. The program, and its associated samples, will be loaded into memory.

There are several ways you can work this. This can be very useful in obtaining better expression for piano sounds.

By applying a tiny amount of the RANDOM waveform to pitch try a depth setting of 01each note may have a very tiny pitch discrepancy.

It is also effective on vocal sounds as few, if any, singers hit the note dead on – most slide into it.
