Tool for the Akai S900/S1000/S3000 filesystem

Post by kmi9000 » Wed Jan 02, 2019 9:12 pm

Hi,

Perhaps, the following info could be useful for the usage of the HxC floppy drive emulator with historical Akai samplers such as the S900, S950, S1000, S1100, S3000:

There is a tool called "akaiutil" which enables access to the Akai S900/S1000/S3000 filesystem which is contained within IMG-files.
For example, "akaiutil" can be used to import/export sample- and program-files to/from IMG-files.
IMG-files can be created from hfe-files with the help of "HxCFloppyEmulator".

The open-source command-line tool "akaiutil" can be found here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/akaiutil/
For further information please see the README-files within the distributions.

Hope this is helpful.

Regards,
kmi9000
