Re: Please Help ME SU700 Scsi Problems


i have one question, with glitches between changing scenes, what did you
exactly mean, because i have no such problems... also the su700 isn't meant
for transposing sample (that's why they call it phrase-sampler). i've 
su700 mainly for the performing purpose, not so much the production purpose
(i agree with you on all points). what i also haven't tried yet is, if for
the zip drive in the pc can read the su700 formatted zips. if so then you
have to
take the longer way around. you first export the sample and save it. then
you load
the aiff file... i think it should work, if that works with the floppy.

also when we were talking about building the zip drive in instead of the
we were talking of building an IDE zip drive (not scsi). i'm don't know a
lot about
scsi but i think it's logical why it doesn't work (the setup you described)
imo in
this kind of setup only the su700 can be a master.

now i have a question, when you used the su700 with a hdd, how fast was it?
is there any difference between the zip and hdd?
