Any word on a CF drive in a Roland SP-808? I saw someone mention it in this thread, and I know the ideas has been floating around unsuccessfully for years. Perhaps the chaps over at SCSIforsamplers.com have some insight on this.

Thanks!

AWww man.. SCSI for samplers got bought out by MPC stuff.
I wanted my VP9000 to get all modern like.. you snooze you lose I guess.

bummer.

Dumb question, I hate SCSI, so I'm a bit ignorant here.. but is there anyway to load wav files directly into my VP9000 from my laptop?

You could still try MPC for your SCSI stuff, as most scsi bits are generic to different samplers.

I bought an external ZIP drive for my SP 808ex. I have the SCSI-digital-optical expansion on board.

However I was never able to use it, since as soon as I connect it, the SP 808 turns off. I don't understand what's happening, why it does not turn on if I try to connect the external zip. :(

So, in the long run, is it better to get an internal SCSI HDD for akai s3000xl or go the not so cheap scsi to cf or scsi to ide to cf ?

Considering that you're going to be buying a drive that is at least several years old, I disrecommend the use of internal SCSI hard drives.

I know, and you could get them really cheap, i thing age is creeping up to them. On the other hand, CF adapters are costly, and much more than i paid my akai ( $75 for mint condition, but no efx boards )
