    You only have to terminate the ends of the SCSI chains, and only if the connected devices don't already have active termination built-in.

    PS: Terminators are available for all of the SCSI connectors you've listed :wink:

    I was gonna say the same. :wink:

    just a bit more clarification: "...and only if connected devices *at the ends* don't already have active termination built in."

    Termination helps the strength/integrity of the SCSI signal. Sometimes you can get devices working even without it.

    If i remember correctly, you should be fine with the Akai's... I don't remember a lot of termination issues with them via scsi (unlike my cpu etc...) as long as they have different scsi id's you "should" be fine.... but it's been awhile my friend...

    E-mu Emulators have active termination also.

    The bigger problem could be to know when to disable it in a bigger setup.

    sorry, trying to remember, iirc, actually having the sampler and scsi device on first and THEN powering up PC was the way it worked... damn... it's been awhile... but i think that's the way i had it, as would rarely power down samplers and their connected drives, but WOULD power down cpu....
