Akai S3000XL

Monday Sep 25, 2017

“Also S3000xl Sampler – Not Working! NO RESERVE!! Sampler screen is on it’s way out and needs replacing ASAP. It gets a little less readable every time you use it. Sampler is complete but is not 100% assembled. Was going to be a donor machine for a project which never came to be 🙁 Great little project for someone with the time.”

Akai S3000XL with 32MB RAM

Sunday Sep 17, 2017

“Good condition Sampler for the age! Screen is a little dim but backlight works. It comes in original box with manual and 4 Akai floppy disks with various bits and bobs on! It has 32MB of RAM (displays 16mwords).

I’ll also include 9 free other disks. I have no idea if they work or have sounds on but it saves binning them. Works like a dream and comes with a V2 OS floppy also.

If you boot this without a disk in it does get stuck on “waiting for hard disk ready.. skip”. There are tons of forum posts suggesting a SCSI fuse etc however whenever I booted this up I always left the V2 OS disk in and it boots fine. So it’s not a problem for me.” Link

Akai S3000XL with 32MB RAM, EB-16

Friday Aug 11, 2017

“For sale is my trusty S3000XL sampler, the PCI SCSI card (Adaptec 2906) I used to interface it with my PC and the all important SCSI cable. I will throw in a CD with the MESA software and a few other useful SCSI/Sampler based apps, the manual and some sample banks.
It has the OS hardwired on a built in chip so no need for the laborious loading of the OS from floppy disk. Just switch it on and it boots straight into OS V2. In fact along with the SCSI interface I never bothered with floppies at all. All samples and programs conveniently stored on the computer and transferred to the sampler via SCSI.

The memory is fully expanded to 32 MB (AKAI talk 16Mwords, see photo). It also has 8 output board installed plus the standard Stereo L/R outs, giving you a total of 10 outputs.”

Akai S3000XL with EB-16, IB-304F Expansion

Monday Mar 20, 2017

s3000xl
Classic Akai sampler.

Working perfectly but the backlight is really low on the LCD screen, which makes it tough to work with, unless you have great eyes!

You will need the backlight fixed, but other than that it’s in perfect working order.

Slightly used look to scroll button, but in general the casing is in great condition for age.

Was expanded not long after I bought it with the extra 8 outputs on back, and extra FX and Filter board installed.

So be 100% sure, you are bidding on a working AKAI S3000XL sampler with expansion boards fitted, except you will have to have the backlight fixed on the screen.” Link

Only the bottom one is for sale, it was a backup unit but never needed it, rock solid machines, hence the sale!” Link

s3000xl “WELCOME TO MY AUCTION

You are looking at the Akai S3000xl 16-bit Professional Stereo Digital Sampler, this will come with power lead.

The screen is dim which is a common fault but it can still be read as seen in my photo’s,

This has 16Mwords which I believe is 32mb of Ram installed

44.1kHz 16-bit stereo sampling, 32 voices on polyphony, 3.5″ floppy drive, SCSI port.

One of the most versatile classic samplers of it’s time – used by Moby, Goldie, Plastikman, LTJ Bukem, Underworld, Fatboy Slim, Faithless, Future Sound of London, Sneaker Pimps, Pet Shop Boys, A Guy Called Gerald and more.

Has some signs of cosmetic wear as can be expected on a unit 20 years old, ” Link

Unit is in very good condition considering it’s age. The main data knob has some wear to the paint work and there are a couple of scratches on the top panel (not seen if racking). There are also minor marks around the rack holes.

I never really had a chance to test all the features of this sampler but for the listing I tested the sampling, saving, loading from floppy and sample editing and these work fine.

The display is readable but dim so the buyer may wish to pay for a display upgrade (search on eBay).

I believe there is 16MB memory installed as it says ’16 MWORDS’ on startup.

The sampler does not include the optional hard drive or effects board.” Link
