Importing wave files in the Fairlight C.M.I. Series II/IIx & other tricks

The availability of a Flash Drive Storage solution for the Fairlight C.M.I. has made it possible to transfer wave files between your Fairlight and a computer.

This tutorial is both for Mac and Windows users. But since I’m a Mac user this tutorial focusses more on the Mac experience.

Besides the instructions on how to import wave files you'll also find lots of other useful info for using the C.M.I. Flash Kit.

More info about The C.M.I. Flash Kit, including buying one, can be found here:

do you have to have the huge keyboard to operate the fairlight? im much more attracted to just using a screen or a mouse. that keyboard is huge

It depends on which model you'll use. The Series I and Series II can only be played using the huge keyboard.
The Series IIx and Series III both have MIDI. Hence you won't need the huge keyboard for these 2 models.

They both have analog filters. The main difference between the II and the IIx is the addition of MIDI.
Besides that, the IIx has superiour sound quality, which is still 8 bit though.
