Akai CD3000Next up from the S1000 & 1100 we go to the first 3000 series - still 16 bit samplers, but with an improved OS, better filters, Balanced XLR's added to the main stereo In/OUT's as well as the 1/4" un-balanced & some basic added fx.... The 3000 was the standard with all the extra stuff as optional, the 3000i added s/pdif, but the rest optional...
This CD3000 offered the idea to load samples from it's internal cdrom only, thus providing a sample-library playback unit but no ability to sample & 1/4" un-balanced connectors.... ideal for studio's that simply wanted access to the S-series sample library for studio's or perhaps sound-fx dubbing etc....
watch out with the ram again, cos these ones use the older Akai sample-ram which is still available but expansive compared to simms on the newer XL series - like 300 quid for 8mb !... so see if any s/h potential purchases have enuff ram for your needs.....
