Cool!  

Unfortunately, for me, I've got one of the older c3000 XL's...

  Akai has software on their website called aksys. Once you connect the sampler 
via usb to the computer, you can access its functionality through that 
software. I've very briefly messed with the program, but i seem to be able to 
navigate through it using the jaws cursor. my unit is with a friend of mine 
right now because he's transfering some files for me from one scsi drive to the 
one i installed in the unit. i should have the unit back within a week or so 
and can continue testing the software.

          Hi Steve,

          I'm actually looking for decent libraries for my akai unit. This is 
the first time I've eexperimented with akai, so i'm new to it. I know the 
software I mentioned gives a user total access to the hardware sampler once 
it's connected via USB to the computer. We'll just have to see how accessible 
it is with jaws. I'll know more in the coming weeks and will keep anyone 
interested updated.

            Hi Omar,

            What's the saxophones and trumpets like on Akai samplers? are they 
better 
            than the ones on dimension Pro?
            got my horns section sounding quite good yet, it's still the weak 
link in my 
            songs.

            I'd love to be using the samples found below however, don't believe 
they are 
            accessible.

            Just enter on the link below go to MP3's, press enter on one of 
them, now 
            press cursor key and arrow up or down until you hear jaws say, "No 
            information available" press right mouse key and press enter. The 
MP3 should 
            then play.
            These samples are amazing.

            Speaking of Akai, I just picked up an older akai s6000. Akai has
            software on their site which enables users to work with the sampler
            through windows. Software is called the aksys software. I've briefly
            messed around with it with jaws, and it seems okay as far as
            accessibility, although I had to use the jaws cursor for the most
            part. Has anyone else messed with the software? If so, any feedback?
