Akai S20

Monday Apr 9, 2018

“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.” Link

“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.” Link

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.**”

Tuesday Jan 2, 2018

“This sampler has not been used since 1999. It was expanded to have 32mb of memory and has 8 jack outs.

It was used to make Plutonik’s album Prime Numbers and comes in a 2u hard and soft carry case. Great for the retro / vintage music equipment enthusiast.” Link

“AKAI S20 desktop hardware sampler in perfect working order. This is great for basic hands-on sampling tasks. Very easy to use, and very robust. Ideal for live performance or DJ-ing as well as studio work. A fraction of the cost of an MPC, and much simpler to use. It comes with the original power supply but no manual. You can download one online however” Link

Akai S20 with 17MB RAM

Friday Jun 16, 2017


16 Bit Mono / Stereo Sampling mit 8 kHz, 16 kHz oder 32 kHz,
Samplerate Reduktion (auf bis zu 4 kHz, sehr schöner “Bitcrushing” / LoFi Effekt),
17 MB RAM (voller Speicherausbau),
16 Tasten zum spielen der internen Samples,
Stereo Ein- und Ausgänge (2x Chinch),
MIDI In, Out/Thru,
Sequenzer (mit Liveaufzeichnung der gespielten Tasten),
Loop,
Timestretch (mit BPM Berechnung einzelner Samples),
Instant-Reverse Funktion (kann während des spielens gehalten werden,
um das gerade gespielte Sample von der aktuellen Stelle rückwärts zu spielen),
3,5″ Diskettenlaufwerk (laden und speichern von Sounds und Patches),

Der S 20 eignet sich live und im Studio sehr gut als vielfältiges Hilfsmittel, besonders um längere Samples schnell festzuhalten
und wiederzugeben, über MIDI, oder die 16 Triggertasten.
Eine großartige Funktion ist die Samplerate Reduktion (jeweils auf 16 kHz, 8 kHz, oder 4 kHz), durch die sehr schöne “Bitcrushing” Klänge erzeugt werden können,
da der S 20 (glücklicherweise) keinen Anti-aliasing Filter besitzt und die dabei entstehenden Artefakte sehr deutlich zu hören sind.
Schon vor dem eigentlichen Samplevorgang lässt sich der Audioeingang mit geringer Samplerate vorhören, wodurch der S 20 auch als “Bitcrushing” Effektgerät eingesetzt werden kann!” Link

Akai MPC 2000 with 18MB RAM, 8-outs

Friday Mar 24, 2017

mpc20000 “Akai MPC2000 classic sampler/sequencer with an immaculate screen, 8 output board, 18MB RAM, OS 1.72 start up disk and separate USB floppy drive for easy file transfers from your computer.

As you’ll probably know it’s nearly impossible to find an MPC2000 these days that doesn’t have screen issues, however this MPC2000 features a rare and absolutely perfect ‘like new’ condition screen – it basically looks like it did the day it left the factory. This is an original MPC2000 screen and not one of the aftermarket copies.

The MPC2000 itself is in fantastic condition with just a few nicks here and there (remember this beast is over 20 years old!). Everything is fully functioning; buttons, dials and floppy drive all work perfectly, pads feel great and are still nice and sensitive and all outputs and inputs sound amazing. This has the essential 8 output board installed, which provides 8 additional analogue outputs and digital in/out.

Also included is an original OS startup disk which loads the latest OS 1.72 as well as a USB floppy drive which you can use to transfer sounds from your computer to a floppy disk.” Link
