This is the BRAND NEW era of SCSI-capable solid-state Memory Card solutions for your hardware sampler. These are the new RP2040-based ZuluSCSI boards within a handy ultra-small case with an external DB25 jack. They use a regular-sized SD card, and most samplers do not require power. (If they do, simply use a USB Android cable plugged into a wall-charger.) The wonderful aspect of the ZuluSCSI is the ability to access up to SEVEN SCSI ID's; so it's really 7 drives in 1! This enables better use of the SD card - more efficient, faster access.
What makes ZuluSCSI special is that it uses Image Files on a standard FAT32/exFAT-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 newer Akai S5000 and the Emu Emulator 4.)
ZuluSCSI works with EVERY SINGLE SAMPLER we know of (which is all of them). All Ensoniq, Akai, Akai MPC, Roland, Emu, Ensoniq, 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.
Comes ready to plug-and play! Included:
- External Case with a full-size RP2040-powered ZuluSCSI board inside with DB25 female SCSI port
- SD card, setup into at most 7 ID's, with the images of the sampler of your choice
- ~3ft or ~6ft SCSI Cable; DB25, CEN50, and MDB50 types available
- If needed, back plug for external 5v power with included wall wart
- 4 rubber feet to optionally put on bottom
- 1-year limited warranty
Please let us know which SCSI Cable you want, and how to format your SD card, in the section above when ordering.
If you have two samplers, you can share the ZuluSCSI with them using our optional 2-way SCSI Switcher, which comes with two more SCSI cables along with the one that comes standard.
