Akai S612

Wednesday Apr 18, 2018

“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.” Link

” 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.” Link

“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!” Link

“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. ” Link

Tested and works as it should. Comes in a 19inch hard inner-case bag which will be good for protection when sending out.” Link

s612 “If price is an issue let me know I’m sure we can work something out. S612 here, haven’t used it very much, but seemed pretty nice to me. 12 bit sampling on this is nice, gives you some oldschool sampling that was the predecessor to the classic akai samplers that every knows, but possibly better. 8 seconds of sampling time on this at that classic oldschool quality is great especially if you’re resampling into another machine. Overall good sampler, and will also throw in the foot petal and stack of records or more if you want. ” Link

s612md280 ” Dies ist der erste Sampler von Akai. Der direkte Zugriff auf Start- und Endpunkt per Fader und der spezielle LoFi Charakter der Sample Engine empfehlen diesen Sampler immer noch als kreatives Sound Design Tool. Der Sampler kommt incl. dem MD280 Quickdisk-Laufwerk und 7 quickdisks. Manchmal lädt der Sampler das Sample erst beim zweiten Mal vollständig. Aber die Disks sind auch schon recht alt. ” Link

Lot of Approximately 300 Quickdisks

Monday Mar 21, 2016

quickdisks “A large collection of original sound library and blank quick disks in varying condition. They have been sitting in an old leather suitcase for over 25 years so I cannot vouch for how well they work as the disk loader on my Akai S612 broke many years ago and there doesn’t seem to be anybody in the country who knows how to fix it. These disks are unique and invaluable to a Vintage Synth collector. A combination of Akai and Roland Sound Libraries, plus a large number of blank disks most of which contain samples made in my own and other studios. There are approximately 300 disks.” Link

612 “Hier kommt ein AKAI S-612 SAMPLER inklusive Diskstation. Zur Versteigerung Eine Disk ist auch noch drin und lies sich sogar noch laden. 🙂 Was ich an diesem Sampler immer geschätzt habe, war der einfache Zugriff auf die Parameter. Alle Parameter haben einen eigenen Regler, Menüs gibt es nicht. So lassen sich in sekundenschnelle Samples erstellen und mit den zwei Fadern für Start- und Endpunkt trimmen. Schiebt man den Endpunkt vor den Startpunkt, wird das Sample rückwärts abgespielt. Bei ziemlich genauer Überschneidung von Start- und Endpunkt friert das Sample sogar ein! Man kann alleine mit diesen Funktionen schon sehr viel Spaß haben und eine Menge experimentelle Sounds erzeugen. Ebenso genial: die Overdub-Funktion. Sample recorden, Overdub-Button drücken und nochmal drüber recorden…und nochmal…und nochmal… usw. Geht alles wie gesagt im Handumdrehen. Der Sampler hat den typischen oldschool 12-bit-Sound, ideal um Drums anzudicken. Hab mit dem Ding immer viel Spaß gehabt. Wer einen modernen Sampler mit tausend Funktionen sucht ist hier falsch, aber wer ultra-einfach samplen will und auf den typischen Akai Oldschool Sound steht, sollte zugreifen.” Link

I have no idea what the fault is on this machine. And as above have no way of testing, so to be very clear this is a NON WORKING 1980s sample machine, bought for parts and spares or for someone who knows what they are doing to have a go at fixing.” Link

Er hat schon einige Jahre auf dem Buckel und hat dementsprechende Gebrauchsspuren.
Einige starke Kratzer vom Rackeinbau sowie ein leicht verbogenes Tune-Poti.
Der Netzteil-Adapter (das Gerät hab ich aus Australien) hat einen starken Wackelkontakt,
funktioniert aber einwandfrei wenn man es in Ruhe lässt (hat mich nie gestört, da die Kiste eingebaut war)
Gegebenenfalls kann man günstig einen Ersatz-Adapter erwerben.” Link

Although the sampler is in working order I am selling it for spares/repairs as one of the sliders on the front of the machine has come off. the rest of the sampler is in excellent clean condition and working well. the front of the unit is in near mint condition, apart from the broken top slider, so maybe somebody can fix the slider and restore the machine to 100% again, or somebody might just want it for spare parts as these machines are very rare. ” Link
