We'd like to reactivate our Akai X Sample-Keyboard S and have a specific question, since the sampler is equipped with an add-on memory backup board.
Since over the years the banks have been filled with some kind of sample rubbish, we simply like to flush the complete RAM. Else we have to unsolder the battery from the memory board. The manual does not say anything about it, nor the information paper of the add-on memory board itself.
It's legacy hardware we know, manual dates to But it's an Akai Pro, that's why we're here asking. Beside that, it's dead silent on the outs and provides 12bit sound. We can give specific information about the board, number and serial if its needed. Link Short URL. Nick D February 08, As you know, the X is a legacy product and as a result there are limited resources available. I checked out the manual as well and while I was not able to really find a means of clearing the memory, you could just record over the samples that are already in the unit or if you simply wanted them to be empty, record some silence over the samples.
I cannot really advise you as far as disassembling the X but I can recommend one thing - just be careful! Let us know how it works out! Acknowledged In progress Doesn't need answer Answered. How does this make you feel? Add Image. I'm e. Hi Nick D, many thanks for replying on that issue. We've done exactly what you've mentioned, recording over the old sample banks with silence.
Strangely there are still fragments of older sample sounds in the memory. That really shouldn't get to complicated and take to much time. The Akai X does not work without the memory backup extension board, the reason might be the latest ROM version that comes with extra functions for extended memory x-fade f. The memory backup board itself holds a jumper, maybe that could be a switch etc. Not sure if disassembling on our own is really a good idea, the battery seems old and maybe a proper electronic service should have a closer look into that.
Maybe a technical manual of the instrument could help.. Nick D February 15, Hey PSOUND, I'm unable to provide a service manual for this product as that documentation is not distributed publicly but I can certainly help you coordinate service if necessary! Non-warranty claims are not handled here on the forum, but I can point you in the right direction!
Select Warranty or Service Inquiry from the drop down menu. Make sure to reference or link this thread to help out the support team. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any additional questions. Thanks for all the info, we'll see what's possible. Maybe we should go with an Akai S sooner or later. The X is very well built but heavy.
Anyway, great support. All rights reserved.
