About This Listing

Akai S3000XL Sampler OS v2.0 EPROM Firmware Upgrade kit
  • Firmware OS v2.0 is the latest released operating system issued by Akai.
  • As illustrated in the picture above, included is 1 EPROM chip to perform the operating system upgrade.
  • Each EPROM is labeled accordingly, with identification of which IC socket the EPROM is to be installed to.
  • Please note: The S3000XL is not to be mistaken with the S3000 non-XL series of samplers. They are of completely different architecture and thus require their own separate version of OS 2.0. Check my other auctions if you need support for the non XL Akai S Series samplers, thanks!

The OS v2.0 upgrade primarily focuses on resolving issues caused by Akai’s previously poor non-compliant implementation of the SCSI protocol in its system code. This is especially important for users out there that wish to use their S2000 or S3000XL with MESA II as well as Recycle 2.0.

Personally – I’ve found that most of my issues getting my workstation to detect my S2000 and S3000XL running OS 1.5 were resolved once I upgraded to OS 2.0.

Please take note of the orientation notch on the top of the EPROM to ensure correct installation.

Rest assured that all EPROM upgrades I send are packaged in anti static reusable packaging and inserted into a bubble mailer.

I send all international packages via airmail parcel in order to ensure that your upgrades arrive safely and in a reasonable time frame. If you want your EPROMS to be sent via international letter mail and have it arrive over a month later, then please look elsewhere, thanks.

Check out my other auctions, I have spare parts for other samplers and synthesizers too!
