Akai S612

“I bought this from Soundgas in January. I love the sound of it but sadly don’t use it enough.

Incredibly warm 12-bit sound. All discrete controls so super simple to use, no menu diving here!

This has the ‘front panel animator’ midi mod. That means you can control the Sample Start, End, Filter Cut-off and Vibrato Controls via midi which opens up a load of other sonic possibilities.”

Akai S-612 with MD280 Disk Drive

“AKAI S-612 Vintage 12-BIT Sampler With Analogue LOW PASS FILTER S612. Condition is Used.

Very unique sampler with very unique tactile interface and 12 bit sound. If you are after some analogue 12 bit sound and don’t want to have to over pay for an sp1200 this is a great bargain

Great fun if you are bored of using your computer for sampling

Has an LFO/low pass filter and sample start/end time can be selected from sliders all in real time

it all works great the only thing is the monitor pot can be a little crackly sometimes but all the other functions work well

I will also include an MD280 and discs. I cannot get the md280 to work -I’m not sure if it’s the discs or the drive itself. It does get power and starts to load but just sticks and never loads the sample, I will include anyway and you might be able to fix it. ”

“Up for sale is our Akai S612 sampler, recently serviced (including power supply overhaul) and upgraded with the essential Front Panel Automation midi upgrade. This gives you midi control of the famous front panel controls that make this sampler such a unique and inspiring instrument to use.

The FPA MIDI upgrade allows realtime control via 5 midi CC channels of Sample Start/Splice, Sample End, Filter Cutoff, Decay and Vibrato Speed.

The unit is in superb cosmetic condition, with only minor marks to the top panel.

It’s been fully tested and is working as it should be.

This is a 100v model, so is supplied with a small good quality UK made stepdown transformer.”

“Akai S612 12-Bit Sampler

I’ve been eBaying a lot of my music equipment recently. Mostly without too much pain. But I love this sampler, and it feels a little hard to let it go.

I haven’t used it much in the last few years though. And I’ve recorded hours and hours of ideas I had with it, so I can always go back and dip into some of it’s weirdness should I need some.

It’s in excellent used condition. Operationally and electronically perfect. Cosmetically excellent too. There are a few scratches on the top and sides from being rackmounted but the front panel is perfect apart from a couple of tiny blemishes. The membrane buttons are all good also. It has the original firmware (but you can upgrade on eBay for not too much). There’s also a nice Front Panel MIDI Automater on eBay too at the moment I noticed…”

“This super hard to find, excellent condition AKAI S612 Rackmount Midi Digital Sampler Micro Studio System that I bought back in 1989. Includes original box and original manual. And, back then the shipper only accepted COD! I had this unit plus the MD280 disk drive (not included, but on eBay in its own auction) set-up in my studio and I used both exclusively for + 4-years. I sold it to a friend who put it in storage in ’93, and never used them. See my other listing for the AKAI MD280 Rackmount Sampler Disk Drive on eBay.

It’s super easy to use, in your studio, in your garage, or on stage to record live. The S612 was one of Akai’s first professional rack-mount samplers and it was first released in 1985.

I’ve tested the S612 and all functions work correctly. I plugged in and sampled my guitar (not included) in it, tested it with an AKAI MAX25 midi keyboard (not included). With the majority of its life in controlled climate storage and not moved around, it works great, it’s sold as-is, no guarantees, no returns.

There are a few minor surface use scratches and scrapes on the external case. All knobs are included and work fine. All channels switch up, down, etc. The sampler has the original power lead.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” Akai S612 rack mount sampler. Another piece of kit I never really got round to using. I’m listing as untested as I stupidly threw away the power cable in a recent studio cable clear out. It powered up when I first got it.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Das Gerät ist voll funktionsfähig. Möglich, dass Poti kratzen. Ein Potiknopf ist verloren gegangen. Deutliche Gebrauchsspuren an Gehäuse. Ich habe es grundsätzlich nur als Filter benutzt. Da ich mir für Kurzweil Sampler zugelegt habe benötige ich es nicht mehr!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Akai S612 being sold for parts and repair, no returns.
What You See Is What you get, the power knob is stuck in so it might just be that to get it going again.
makes a great parts unit or for someone willing to put in the Work equity to get this going again. The S612 is very hard to come by now and would make a great parts unit. Comes with a few used Quik Discs too with samples on them. Comes with Akai MD280 disk drive. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

s612 “For sale here is the famous AKAI S612 in fairly good condition considering its age. Has a few marks here and there but definitely not as beaten up as most of these on the market. Tested and works as it should. Comes in a 19inch hard inner-case bag which will be good for protection when sending out.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
