taken from samplecd FAQ

What samplers read what format CD-ROMS

Akai S1000 reads Akai S1000 & Akai S3000

Akai S3000 reads Akai S1000, Akai S3000, Roland & Emu.

Akai S5000/6000 reads Akai S1000, Akai S3000, Roland, .wav & Emu

Roland S760/SP700 reads Roland, Akai S1000 (though slow to convert)

Roland S750/770 reads Roland

Emu E111X/ESI32 reads Akai S1000 & Emu

EMU E64/EIV reads Akai S1000, Emu & Roland

Kurzweil K2000/K2500 reads Akai S1000, Akai S3000, Emu, Roland, Ensoniq & .wav.

Ensoniq ASR10 reads Akai S1000 and Roland.

Remember that even if your sampler recognises and can read non-native formats not all of the program data may be readable in addition to the base sounds.
