Kompakt is supposed to be able to import Akai samples. I have an Akai formatted disk of Peter Sedjeliak "String Ensembles Vol 1" which will not see the samples... it is a mixed disk with the string samples and audio demos of their other products. Is there any way to extract these samples on OSX?
Also, I have an older Akai CD-3000 CD-ROM which OSX doesn't even recognize as a disk... does anyone know a way to extract these samples?
What exactly is allowed to be imported in the Akai format?
Not sure about OSX but on pC-DOS based there are several sampler formats that are proprietary (Kurzweil and some earlier akai) The operating system will not load/read these disks. I use chickensystems Translator" which will load the disk as a vertual device
You can buy single sampler version of the full version at www.Chickensys.com
they might even have a demo that you could use
