Here is a short page that explains how to backup and restore AKAI-formatted floppy disks under Linux.
The Akai Professional web page used to
hold the SysEx (System Exclusive) documentation for the S1000/S2000/S2800 (and
related) samplers for quite a while, but when the website was relaunched some
time in summer last year, this information was not available anymore.
Fortunately I had a printout of those docs on paper, and typed them in again. Please find here:
These documents depend on each other (e.g., the S2000 SysEx implementation is a superset of the S1000), so be sure to get all three documents if you need complete reference information.
