When set to positive value, the sound will be louder in the upper reaches of the keyboard and by setting it to a negative value, the sound will be louder on lower notes. If the piece of music is not overly complicated and polyphony is not going to be exceeded, you may prefer just to leave the priority at the default setting of NORM. The ability to read CD ROMs made for other manufacturer’s samplers gives access to an even further range of sounds.

Thanks for checking it out though! Applies power to the SXL. Before turning on the sampler, it’s a good idea to turn its volume down or to turn the volume down on the amplifier or the mixer channels as the power up ‘thump’, although very slight, could damage sensitive speakers, especially if the amp is turned up loud.


Repeated pressing of this will make the SXL try and try again and you must judge if the loop is acceptable or not. Such a program may be useful for something like piano or strings which have been sampled on the G of every octave. This allows you to select how many notes 1 to akal can be played at a time by this particular program. This toggles between ONE and ALL and allows you to choose between editing either one single keygroup or all keygroups simultaneously.

Modulation sources may be mixed at each ‘modules’ input to further expand the possibilities available and each control input may be inverted for even more flexibility. The Parameter Page The primary function of this page is to create and copy keygroups although it is also possible to set key ranges although this is possibly best done in janual SPAN page – see later.

One useful feature of the SXL is that it is possible to be playing one program whilst another is being selected. However, it is also possible to set parts to the same MIDI channel so that you can layer programs for a rich, expansive expensive?

By pressing ‘print’ button you will print only current page. Of course, you cannot edit these sequence files but this function allows you to use the SXL as aakai sequence data filer so that, if you are playing live and require backing tracks or whatever, you can do so without the inconvenience of taking your sequencer with you. Be very careful using this feature as deleted takes cannot be retrieved.

This is something of an art and a science and something we won’t delve into here in great detail. To achieve this, simply set part 4 to MIDI channel 2, the same aksi the piano. ByNojus Tue Jan 08, 7: Using this single keygroup program you could work three ways – you could just have the one keygroup and set that up with one of the samples and then, when your happy with that, copy that keygroup four times and set the appropriate key span.

Here are a few suggestions: This function is only really of relevance of you are using the ‘old Akai’ method mznual sequence programs sharing the same program number. If you’re mad enough to try layering 16 programs, polyphony will be reduced to one voice! There may be occasions when you have more than this and so you may use the CURSOR keys to scroll through your program list.
