SCSI2SD favorites : ZuluSCSI & BlueSCSI

ZuluSCSI on Akai - more information > Youtube >>> Akai S3000XL and Translator

ZuluSCSI RP2040 is used as a internal replacement for the SCSI harddisk.

For internal SD you need the 3.5 inch FD Bay Housing,
so that you can change disks on the outside of the sampler.

At Amiga Kit they sell 2 types ZuluSCSI, a Compact Version and a Full Version.
They are cheaper, but some say the service could be better.

BlueSCSI V2 Making & Using - more information > Youtube >>> Retronaut

BlueSCSI is perhaps even more interesting, it is open source & open hardware.
Version 1.1a is simpler and the 2.0 Version has more functions and both are offered as a DIY kit.
The smallest parts have already been placed, it's a lot cheaper but for the advanced user.

External Mini Versions : ZuluSCSI & BlueSCSI

The advantages of an external upgrade is that everything on the outside of
the sampler can remain the same. So you can still use flopydisks and use
the internal harddisk, which is useful for transferring data.

ZuluSCSI RP2040 Mini (about 100 euro)
The ZuluSCSI is an SD card reader that simulates up to 7 SCSI drives & CDs. The biggest
advantage is the easy management of the drives. You simply copy a CD or hard drive image
onto the SD card and you can quickly and easily integrate any image for your sampler.
ZuluSCSI Mini is the external version that is simply plugged into the SCSI port.

Order ZuluSCSI : Studio-Services.de. Also ZuluSCSI RP2040 (firmware beta version)
support for USB Mass Storage - access SD card contents via USB. ZuluSCSI-firmware

BlueSCSI v2 DB25 Mini (about 50 euro)
BlueSCSI is a lot cheaper, about half that, but is harder to get. The fully assembled version
comes fully tested and ready to use. Just provide a microSD card. In the kit version,
the SMD parts come already soldered. All you have left to solder are the header pins
and the SCSI connector. These are through-hole parts, you need some soldering practice.

They still have them here, or you have to google. Order BlueSCSI DB25 : OneGeekArmy.eu

Akai Z8 Sampler Site
z8pic44 (Nederlands) I sold my Akai S2000 and bougth myself an Akai Z8 (24bit) with USB.
In my opinion one of the best samplers Akai ever made, with the same sampling
hardware as the MPC4000. This S2000 site was created more than 20 years ago,
the Z8 site is a bit more recent. Go for a view to this link :
