AKAI XE8 DRUM EXPANDER - 19" RACK - SYNTH MODULE - MANUAL - 2x EXPANSION CARDS



via this auction

"AKAI XE8 DRUM EXPANDER 19" rack unit plus 2 Expansion cards.

Classic and now fairly rare drum synth module from 1986. In superb condition from non-smoking and pet free home studio. Very clean example in full working order - very minimal marks around mounting holes but none of the usual scratches on base or lid often found on 2nd hand rack equipment - see pictures. Selling only as I need to reduce my studio gear a little.

Digital sounds are 16bit/32kHz. Can be triggered over any midi control device such as midi keyboard or sequencer such as an AKAI MPC.

Fantastic production tool for Electronic based music - Hip Hop, Electro, House, EDM, etc... Great selection of 16 percussion sounds built in but also supplied are 2x expansion cards with an extra 16 sounds each - SLI01R (dry set) and SL802R (ambience set) which are in themselves becoming hard to obtain.

Midi in/out/thru connections. 8 individual outputs plus 1 full mix output all on 6.3mm jack sockets and 2 expansion slots - 1 on front and 1 on rear, so both expansion cards can be mounted together. LED display shows data and sound info. Sound parameters (pitch, tune, envelope) can be edited and stored so you can tweak the sounds to your preference plus can be modulated via midi performance info.

Supplied with original manual and a power cable. Manual features full midi implementation chart, program data chart and parameter guide."
