I plugged it in and everything "lit up" in a way that looks normal, so I'm assuming it works. Anyone know where I can get a manual for this thing? Also, if any of you have one of these I'd greatly appreciate any insights you can offer on practical use. The AKAI site no longer carries the downloadable version, but there are some sites that have info.

Since I only use the Akai in the studio, this has saved me from having to buy an external HD or CD-ROM for the Akai, gives me a fast way to save samples versus floppys , and makes working with. The Akais are great machines, and the only gripe on the is that you only have stereo outs and RAM is maxed at 16mb versus 32 on the 's.
