HxC Fitted to Orla GT9000LX organ

The HxC needs to be configured as Akai S950HD interface format. It works flawlessly. :D

The SD card version is best for the organ in my opinion, as a USB sticking out of the front where the drive is located is simply waiting to be accidentally snapped off! Having said that, Orla went on to fit another off-the-shelf USB floppy emulator to their future models... So, what do I know? (!) :lol:

Hallo, Could you possibly tell me if you have exact fitting instructions of the emulator to the Orla please ( how do you get to it !, and the part number of the unit, I have just purchased the same model organ but find the floppy disk system a bit' iffy' and would like to install a better system. Any tips and comments would be greatly appreciated, it seems very difficult to find anyone who knows much about this subject. Ken

Thanks Jef, but do they include physically how to fit one into the GT9000,, I have replaced a floppy into a Yamaha AR100 which was quite involved and without some prior knowledge I doubt I would have dared trying because it involved removing 6 under the base screws, then the music rest and organ top , then the roll top , removing some special wing bolts, swinging up the keyboards out of the way and securing first before you could get to the floppy drive. I should imagine the Orla has a similar set up..

It's taking out the wrong screw in ignorance and finding you can't put it back that worries me !

I have tried to contact andyg but there is no e-mail address given, he has fitted one successfully , I would buy one tomorrow if I had a clue on how to open up the Orla ! Ken
