Freeware for Windows 2000/XP/Vista that allows you to send WAV files from your computer to an Akai S900/S950 MIDI digital sampler (no other models are supported).
Can send WAV files, either mono or stereo, left or right channel, from 8-64 bits.
S950rs.exe is RS-232 only and does not support MIDI at this time!
Sample-transfer is 38400 baud.
You will need a DB-25 male to DB-9 female null-modem Cable (no longer than 10-ft.).
To use a USB port you will also need an Adaptor.
