Update 2019-10-06:
I could not help myself so I wrote support for AKAI disk/cd images (based on the excellent reverse engineering done by mda@smartelectronix and others).
TX16Wx will now open iso/nrg/img disk images in AKAI format and read samples and programs (the latter fairly well converted). It even tries to re-create stereo samples even though the disk format is sorely lacking there.
Loaded samples will stream directly from the image.

Initial builds of next version.

New features and fixes:
  • Added MP3 support
  • Added AKAI S1000/S3000 CDROM/Disk image support
  • Improved beat slicer accuracy and performance
  • Sampling using MIDI generator now optionally uses threshold trigger to
    detect sound start, to deal with varying latencies in DAW:s
  • Using groups in toggle mode and mono polyphony now works as expected
  • Tooltips now show for disabled widgets
  • AAX plugin now tries to respect hosts max UI size
  • Improved licencing.
  • Removed OSX 32-bit support
  • Fixed crashes when reloading plug-in on OSX
  • Increased OS buffering for DFD from high-latency (spinning) disks
Builds available at https://www.tx16wx.com/beta-builds/.

Happy samping

Note that it is akai _image_ support. There is not (yet?) any support for physical cd-roms (trickier).
