There are two types of ZuluRack models; Regular and Steel.
ZuluRack Regular is a 1U single-space rack-mount solution containing up to (3) ZuluSCSI Drives. The rear panel contains DB25 female SCSI jacks for SCSI connections, and a single 5v banana jack and a wall-wart to route external power if your connections require it.
ZuluRack Steel is also 1U or 2U rack-mount solution containing up to (6) ZuluSCSI Drives. (The 2U rack is for the (6) ZuluSCSI option.) The panel is a solid anodized steel panel that holds up either (1), (3), or (6) ZuluSCSI units. Included are power cable(s) (one for each ZuluSCSI) that route from the backside BERG floppy-sized power connector to a 5v wall-wart, a SCSI adapter for each for a DB25 SCSI connection, and a 64GB SD card for each ZuluSCSI set up for your indicated sampler.
ZuluSCSI Drive Description
This is the new era of SCSI-capable solid-state Memory Card solutions for your hardware sampler. This is the RP2040-based ZuluSCSI board, packaged for internal installation purposes, with a handy standard 3.5 tray, an 18" 50-pin ribbon cable, a regular-sized SD card, and completely set up for your sampler/unit to your specifications from the factory.
What makes ZuluSCSI special is that it uses large Image Files on a standard FAT32-formatted SD card for the drives it accesses. This is a significant improvement for proprietary disk formats (Akai, Roland, Ensoniq, Emu, MPC, etc.) and solves the inconvenient issues with SCSI2SD proprietary SD cards. It is far easier and faster to use with a computer. (We still recommend SCSI2SD v6.0 for computer-compliant samplers such as the Akai S5000 and the Emu Emulator 4.)
Incredibly, ZuluSCSI Drives have the ability to access up to seven SCSI ID's; so it's really 7 drives in 1! This enables better use of the images on the SD card - more efficient, faster access.
Our quality ZuluSCSI Internal Drives work with EVERY SINGLE SAMPLER we know of (which is all of them). All Akai, Akai MPC, Roland, Emu, Kurzweil, Korg, Peavey, Synclavier, Fairlight, Waveframe samplers. We don't provide a list because we haven't found a sampler it DOESN'T work on.
It also works on many/all non-sampler SCSI units, such as the Akai DPS16 and other SCSI-based hardware DAW's.
