Akai S1000HD with 8MB RAM, 60MB HD

Thursday Jan 8, 2015

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!” Link

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.” Link

Akai S1000HD

Wednesday Aug 6, 2014

“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.” Link

“AKAI S1000HD SAMPLER

The amazing S1000 with an internal 40MB hard drive.

8 MB memory board fitted

This unit has been fully tested ( sampling/ floppy drive/ SCSI/ midi / outputs / buttons dials etc) it’s working perfectly.

Brand new high quality backlight.

The power soocket has been changed to a standard 3 pin type, so you can use any standard power cable. ( please remember Japanese machine are not earthed so the earth pin is not connected )

The unit is in super condition with only a few light marks.

This unit is 100 v 50/60 HZ, you may need a power transformer (very easy to get hold of) depending on your country.” Link

Akai S1000HD with 2MB RAM

“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.” Link

“The hard drive is completely empty and there are no floppy disks.
The display is visible if light is shining on it but dim to read without.
The potential of this vintage model is well known, and its quality is high.” Link

Akai S1000HD with 18MB RAM, Digital I/O, SCSI

Friday Jul 5, 2013

“Akai S1000HD with optional AES/EBU digital interface board and SCSI board

I have owned this since mid-90s and was a great workhorse for many years. I have not used in years but I have just powered up and operating system loads fine. The screen pictured is on maximum brightness so starting to dim slightly but will be fine for few more years regular use. I have not tested samples as I do not own any on floppy disks with samples on them any more. It worked perfectly fine last time I used it and it has been stored safely ever since.

Included with S1000:
240v to 100v step down transformer
Power cable
Akai v4.40 operating system on used floppy disk (OS can be downloaded from Akai website)

IMPORTANT NOTE:
This is a Japanese 100 volt version but I am including 45w stepdown transformer plug with UK plug and works fine.

ALSO

The 40mb hard disk is also missing as it started to fail and I removed. I used to use Zip drive attached via SCSI which gave more space than HD any way. These are still available on eBay.” Link

Akai S1000HD with 4MB RAM

Monday Jun 10, 2013

“If you are reading this you know what it is…This one is the HD model and has a built in Hard Drive. No computer software virtual instrument or sound card can sound as big, fat, punchy, crunchy, charming and characteristic as the real thing. The magic is in the D/A converters and the sound of the filters. If you have never heard one before, it sounds awesome compared to a software sampler going through a computer sound card.

Good Working Condition – History
Everything works as it should. The knobs and buttons respond great and the front panel is clean. The LCD is great, but the backlight is dim, like most, if you set it up right you can see fine.

The floppy works, but just needs a certain touch to snap in, just push in and to the left a bit and it pops right in. It comes right out when you push the button to eject it…I never noticed it before because I never used floppies on this, and noticed it just now while loading up sounds from floppy and saving onto the internal drive. Didn’t have any problems loading up 18 floppies worth of sounds…I got the hang of it after inserting and ejecting just a few of them.

SCSI works, though it seems a bit tricky to get a SCSI cable on it, feels like it is not going all the way in, but I have connected a syquest drive to back up my sounds and it works. The main volume knob pot feels bent a bit, so you will notice it wobble off center if you turn it all the way down or all the way up, but it does not affect the audio, no scratchy sounds while adjusting volume.

Since it has a built in Hard Drive, there is also a fan on the back, you can see it in the pict, so that fan makes some noise, there is nothing wrong with it, it just makes a sound and its needed to keep the HD cool. (I’m not exactly sure what size the drive is, these usually came with 20 or 40 MB drives) but I know for sure the SCSI card itself has an internal connector, so you can connect an inernal ZIP or SCSI SD Card Reader if you like, then you can eliminate the fan

It has the latest OS 4.40 in ROM and 4 MB of RAM (Akai calls it 2 MWords which is 4 MB) It now has 2 x 2 MB cards in it and it will accept 8 MB cards without having to modify it….I know for sure because it used to have 2 x 8 MB cards but I have since used them elswhere.” Link
