“Akai S20 Sampler.

This is a classic machine which has been in storage for a few years. No longer needed in my set up. It was the first ‘groovebox’ style sampler with a built in sequencer that I had and the stereo sampling is very simple and good quality.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“I’m a huge fan of simple gear that sounds good, workflow is everything after all, and the S20 is just such a device. Gives you that classic 16 bit Akai thing in a neat desktop set-up, a format which is present everywhere these days in many Elektron & Moog products etc., but was pretty ahead of its time for the 90’s when most stuff was rack mount or keys. This S20 is in stunning original condition, very minor age-related wear and tear, hard to find anything worth mentioning, all fully functional, bright screen and all pads/dials/buttons etc. work as they should, disk drive all good. Box is near mint too, as is the UK 3 pin PSU (would just need a 2 pin adapter or easy to find modern replacement to work in EU, not included) and the original manual.”

“Akai S-20 16 bit stereo phrase sampler

In nice cosmetic condition, please see photos.

In working order. Have downloaded a sample from cd which can be edited, but I do not have the equipment to test midi, all function buttons light up when pressed and edit functions can be altered with cursors.”

“Tested and fully working and in very good condition.

The Wernick foot-pedals were custom-made to enable samples to be triggered from the S20 while playing other instruments in a live situation to boost the live sound.

The Wernick pedals (which would cost around £60 each on their own these days) trigger 4 selected samples on 4 configured pads & connect to the S20 via the midi ‘hub’ (shown in the pics).” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai S20 with 16MB RAM

Wednesday Nov 7, 2018

“Akai S20 sampler, not seeing amuch use for me these days but still a great and crunchy sounding cheap way to get into hardware sampling. Has the 16mb memory upgrade installed, and comes with a generic power supply. Reads 3.5″ floppies, which are easy enough to get hold of, but I’ll send a couple of new blank ones with it to get you started. Everything works fine, one of the rear RCA outputs crackles a bit if you move it, but is generally stable. A previous owner stuck a sticker on the side, but I never bothered to take it off. They also smoked, and after many years in my studio the smell has almost gone, although every so often, if you lift it up and sniff the right bit, you can still smell a little bit of fust. Generally, however, it behaves itself on the smell score.”

“I have another S20 which I use more regularly, so time to let someone else have fun with this one. I’ll included are 2 pre-formatted floppy disks (the S20 can format any regular floppy using the format function), and a replacement adapter sourced from a Sega console, which is recommended on Akai S20 forums as it delivers the exact voltage and polarity required. There is plenty of information and instruction online for these machines, as well as plenty of videos on YouTube demonstrating their capabilities.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Akai S20 Sampler, produced in 1997, renowned for its build quality, ease of use and functionality. Sought after and increasingly rare sampler in clean condition with usual age related scuffs. This is an unmolested model so it’s ideal for the purist, or someone who wants a usable circuit bending project. Maximum memory of 16MB (17mb including inbuilt 1mb) installed. Floppy drive for saving and loading samples, Phono/RCA in/out, midi in/out, and 1/4″ jack out connections (cables not included). Crisp compression capable of old skool sound, bit-crushing, downsampling, etc.

This is my spare S20 so time to let someone else have fun with it. I’ll included are 2 pre-formatted floppy disks (the S20 can format any regular floppy using the format function), and a replacement adapter sourced from a Sega console which delivers the exact voltage and polarity required to power the sampler. There is plenty of information and instruction online for these machines, as well as plenty of videos on YouTube demonstrating their capabilities.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai S20 with 17MB RAM, USB Floppy Emulator

Thursday Jan 25, 2018

“AKAI S20 16-bit Stereo Phrase Sampler MPC-style full RAM w PSU

For sale is a good condition AKAI S20.. the poor-man’s MPC. Surprisingly useful machine with just enough basics to get great results. This unit is fully upgraded to 16MB of RAM and comes with a compatible PSU.

It is in fine working order with the original FDD but no disks. Several minor nicks and blemishes on surface, but all buttons and knobs are intact.

**Included as well is a USB Floppy emulator I had intended to install for this unit. This drive is thrown in as a bonus and no guarantees are implied/ user takes responsibility for use and application.**”
