I know I have updated the OS when I first got the S2000 many moons ago. I'll have to check if there is any further updates, I have never checked so is worth while doing. To be honest I would agree with you, the S2000 should be pretty similar to the S3000. They were basically the same machines if my memory serves me correctly, but the S2000 was more stripped down in its basic form, allowing you to add the digital in/out boards, effects and filter boards at a later date which I so did. The S3000 does have a far better display, but I would have thought the OS's of both machines would offer similar functionality. I'll have to take a look. I know the S2000 can read S1000, S900/950 samples, but as I understand it does it automatically when loading from disk or SCSI, not sure about MIDI. Avalon does seem to crash a lot when attempting to do any sort of MIDI or Sysex transfer, not the best way to handle any errors. Thanks for the tips!
