Akai S700 Project Machine

Thursday Dec 20, 2018

“Akai S700 Midi Digital Sampler for spares/repairs. Was working fine but has stopped booting up properly and only shows lit up screen and disk drive LED (as in last picture). Since it was working previously I’m sure it is a quick fix but I do not have the time to do it. Good cosmetic condition for age, includes power supply and operating system quick disk.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“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 ” Verkaufe einen Akai S700 in einem sehr seltenen Zustand, er hat das sxm007 memory board eingebaut, dass ca. 100-150 Euro kostet, 6 optionale outputs, die sehr selten sind.
Zu dem QD drive kann ich nichts sagen, da ich keine Disketten habe. ”
