|Quick Studio Tips
|When using compression, start off with a ratio of about 2:1 or 3:1 and lower the threshold until you start heairng evening between the loudest parts and quietest parts. Why is it called a "ratio"? Here's a useful way to understand ratio. A 3:1 ratio means it takes 3db of gain above the threshold setting to produce a compressed gain result of 1db.|
|Burning Instructions For Our Akai S1000 / Universal ISOS|
UPDATE: A new method is available for burning S1000 disks using the free burning PC app called IMGBurn. All that is required is to rename the .img file to .iso and select the option in IMGBurn that allows you to burn an image to disk. You can download IMGBurn here. If you cannot run IMGBurn, or prefer to use other burning software, please refer to the original instructions below.
STEP 2 - Launch CD Burning App: Launch your favorite burning program. The steps given below are done using Alcohol 120%. The steps are similar with other burning software, however, we recommend using Alcohol or Nero. A free download can be found by clicking here.
STEP 3 - Browse for Image: Click on "Image Burning Wizard" and then "Browse". You need to first make the .img file visible to the burning program, so where it shows "file types" select "All Files *.*" Search for the folder containing the .img file you extracted from the rar file and double-click it.
STEP 4 - Set the Block Size: After selecting the .img file and clicking 'next,' you will need to click the "Block Size" dropdown menu and change it to 2048, and then click OK.
STEP 5 - Set the Burn Speed and Start: And finally, set the burn-speed to a low value (4x-24x gives best results) and then click on START. Once the burning is done, you're all set! You can load the disk into any scsi-connected CD-ROM drive connected to your sampler, or you can load it into your computer's CD-ROM drive for use within your software-based sampler.
