“This is a rare Akai S700 classic vintage 12 bit sampler including power lead and 60+ extremely rare Quick Disks. The product has been in protected storage for a while. The Quick Disk drive belt needs replacing to use the drive. This is a common problem with these units as the belt ages and snaps/perishes; however the unit can still sample directly for that old-school sound and is otherwise is in very good condition with one scratch/paint marks upon the top wall (see pictures).

There are roughly 62 disks including the rare Akai sample library, as well as some writable disks (see pictures)

INCLUDES-

Power Lead

62 Disks

Rare 6 sample output jack output lead

Original manual (missing the outer cover/page)

19 inch rack-mount brackets (see picture)”

“Der S-700 ist ein 6-stimmiger 12Bit Sampler mit analogem Tiefpassfilter pro Stimme.
Technisch der direkte Nachfolger des gesuchten S-612 und klingt völlig identisch!
Sehr direkter und knalliger 12Bit-Sound, perfekt für Breakbeat- und HipHop-Drums.

Das Gerät ist voll funktionsfähig, sehr sauber, leicht zu bedienen und solide verarbeitet.
Einzig das MO-Diskettenlaufwerk ist nicht getestet mangels Diskette. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Vintage Akai S700 12-bit Sampler with factory disks and 9 Roland writable QDs

Great unit if you want that authentic 80’s 12-bit sampler sound. Has a distinctive sound that you can not get even if you lower the resolution of today’s samplers.

Now over 30 years old, I have had this sampler in my studio/storage since new. Uses obsolete QD (Quick Disk) drive. The drives on nearly all these units will have failed many years ago, as they have a rubber belt on the disk drive motor that turns to mush. When I tested the S700 last week for the first time in 10 years, I found that drive belt was broken, and have had the belt replaced by the guy who maintains my gear.
Now working, and able to load most of the sounds from my old library disks. Some are now saying “bad data on disk”, which is not a surprise given this is 30 year old magnetic media.

Many people use these units without the temperamental disk drive, as the operating system is pre-loaded, and you can still use to create samples then run them into your DAW or s/w based sampler (still capturing ‘that’ sound) without using the drive.

In good condition for age. Has a bit of rack ‘rash’ shown on pictures, but the front/back panels are in good condition, and scratches not visible when mounted in rack.

Included are the three original Akai library sounds that shipped with the unit, together with 9 Roland writable QD” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Rare Akai S700, Classic Vintage 12 Bit Sampler with Power Lead, in excellent condition for its age,
screen still bright and clear, in fully working order including the Quick Disk drive. Comes with several disks including original Akai sample library Quick Disks and some blank ones.

This is the rack-mountable version of the Akai X7000 Keyboard Sampler and the first of the beige rack samplers that Akai made. This is a cheaper way to get the classic Akai sound like the much more common S900 / S950’s.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

s700 “only selling this because i have another one and i have no storage space,
it’s a great low bit rate sampler with a classic old skool sound to it. great for slamming loud beats etc into to get a really dirty and gritty effect! pretty simple machine with only 6 samples but has some great unique features, you can drop the sample rate right down to about 4 hz to get a longer very lo fi sample.. and of course the reverse loop which is good for creating long string type effects.

the screen is working but the quick disk drive is not. drive can maybe be swapped over but I use it just to colour the samples and make them more basic before re sampling it back into ableton or whatever..

rack ears are also missing and most of the knobs unfortunately.

I can supply a power cable as its not a standard kettle.”

s700 “Rare Akai s700. Floppy doesnt work. Loading of samples via DAW is eitherways a better workflow given the fact of the floppy format (Quickdisk).

Crush drums at 4kHz. Super fast workflow compared to any other Akai Sampler

Auction is just for the S700 on the picture. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Ansonsten ist das Gerät in einem guten Zustand und hat zuletzt funktioniert. Leider kann ich es momentan nicht testen weil ich keine Möglichkeit habe Sounds per Midi zu laden!

Akai S700 with 18 QuickDisks

Saturday Oct 18, 2014

“You are bidding on a VINTAGE Akai s700 Midi Digital Sampler + a set of 18 Roland Sound Library Quick Disks. Many of these disks sell on Ebay for $10 a pair. I have 18!

Condition – Cosmetically it is in good condition. The front face panel is mostly free from blemishes and the far right knob keeps turning instead of stopping. I don’t know if the unit actually works or not though. It turns on, but when I tried to load up the disk, it never loads. I don’t know if it needs a boot disk, like an MPC does, but for this reason the unit is being sold AS-IS, with no returns.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
