Akai S1000HD

Sunday Sep 23, 2018

“As you can see from the photos, the unit is in mostly pretty good order. Just a few scuffs here or there but otherwise cosmetically pretty fine. The backlight – like in most models of this kind – is now faint, but still quite visible when turned up to maximum contrast (see photo). A new backlight can be purchased for around £20-30 apparently.

As you can see from the photos – the front XLR inputs are a little corroded on the surface but I think this is purely cosmetic and they should work fine.

I will be completely honest here and say the unit did have some trouble years ago, when the hard drive failed to load up. This seems to have resolved itself now, but the drive is still a little noisy at times. Hopefully it still has a good bit of life in it!!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai S1100HD with External Syquest Drive

Wednesday Aug 29, 2018

“Up for auction is my last Akai S1000 HD, And look what I found…. My MicroNet Technologies 88mb C Drive bay, SCSI cable, and a removable Syquest Drive full of S1000 Samples and Keygroups. As you can see… I FIXED THE DISPLAY! ($130.00 + my time). Largest memory available, and a large internal hard drive for samples and song keygroups. It also has the 3.5 floppy drive for S900-S950 and S1000 samples. Then store the samples internally on the drive in the S1000, or on to a Syquest removable drive. No more reloading of floppy disks like the S900’s and S950’s. I bought it all new in Los Angeles back in the early 1990’s. The sampler was used on many major label records during my career in LA. Works perfectly! There is some rack rash (usual). It’s just time for me to let it go to someone who wants to carry on its legacy. Look closely at the display pictures for some of what’s on the removable drive. There are a boatload of samples on the removable drive (roughly the equivalent of 30 to 40 3.5 floppy disks). The removable drive is worth some serious coin all by itself. Very cool stuff. This is the perfect vintage system! When you base out the various items and the new display, the S1000 is priced at about $300.00… Okay…. Tell you what I’m gonna do. I’ve got, at the least, 40 to 50 3.5 S900, S950, and S1000 floppy disks on top of what’s on the removable drive. I was going to sell them separately. I will include them in this auction just to be done with my Akai life. See the added pictures. Some of the floppy’s in the picture are Mac, but I’ll sort them out.

Includes power cords, SCSI Card, SCSI cable, and Manual.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

s1khd“Verkaufe meinen geliebten Akai S1000HD Sampler mit Floppy-Laufwerk, 60Mb??? Festplatte (mit den Original mitgelieferten Akai Sounds drauf) und 8Mb Arbeitsspeicher.

Leider ist das Display schon etwas leuchtschwach, aber ansonsten funktioniert der Sampler noch wunderbar. Der Sampler liefert nach dem einschalten eine “HD-Error” Meldung – das passiert, weil die Platte beim Booten langsamer als das Betriebssystem im ROM ist – sie funktioniert aber einwandfrei. Das Betriebssystem ist die “neueste” Version 4.4!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

s1000hd “Classic Akai S1000 Sampler. Back light needing replacement but can read display ok. Left top corner a little bent. Doesn’t affect the unit but may no longer fit if rack mounting required.

“Hard disk read error” but other instructions are ok. Haven’t had time or determination to use this properly. It connects fine to keyboard fine and will play sawtooth and sine etc. Just wish I had persistence to learn to use this properly.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Here we have the legendary Akai S1000HD sampler

with built in memory (40MB I believe), 10 outputs (L,R and 1-8) (2 jack inputs,2 XLR inputs)
both the hard drive and floppy drive appear to be working. We’ve loaded samples up from both and they trigger fine.
Headphone output still works fine.

We haven’t tried sampling anything recently so I can’t say if this works but we have no reason to believe it doesn’t. The rest of the functions are currently untested but again we have no reason to believe they won’t work as it has been fully maintained since new.

As can be seen from the photo’s the unit is in pretty good condition, there is rack rash and the top is dented somewhat.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Up for grabs is a S1000HD

Not to be confused with a s1000, this model has a beefier power supply , cooling fan , and can use both a internal scsi device and external device’s.

Some notes

OS 1.3 on eproms

OS4.4 boots via floppy

1mwords fitted = 2mb

Backlight is completely dead

(nice chap on ebay that sells replacement backlights)

missing one knob but it does not effect use.

Rec gain pot is slightly bent but fully functional

harddrive was removed a few years ago I was using a scsi card reader in the floppy drive slot.

Having transferred my scsi card reader to another devie I reinstalled the original floppy drive which is fully functioning and is currently being used to boot OS 4.4.

Generally the unit is in ok condition as expected with a unit this age theres a lot of scuffs and signs of use.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
