Lot of 2 Akai S900 Samplers

Saturday Jan 20, 2018

“2 x Akai S900. One works one does not, the one that isn’t working I think the disk drive might be faulty and it blows the fuse. Not the brightest of displays on the working one but can still be easily operated and comes with a free floppy disk to save your samples on! 8 outputs on both and 12bit loveliness to the sounds! Oh! These came out of the famous Strongroom Studios in London!!!” Link

“Akai S900 Sampler, viele Sounds, V. 2.1, VINTAGE Rarität
Leider gibt der S900 keinen Ton mehr aus und wird deshalb als defekt für Bastler verkauft!
Mitgeliefert werden ein Berg an Sounds auf Diskette und die Version 2.1 ebenfalls auf Disk.
Es empfiehlt sich, beim Anschalten immer die 2.1 zu laden, da sonst Disks, die unter dieser Version erstellt wurden, teilweise nicht lesbar sind.
Es fehlt ein Knopf bei Output und beim Monitor-Regler die Kappe.

Alle Funktionen scheinen ordnungsgemäss zu laufen, das Display bzw. die LEDs zeigen immer das an, was erwartet wird, selbst Fehlbedienung.
Auch MIDI-Meldungen kommen entsprechend & richtig an (es gibt im Menü eine Testseite).
Durch die fehlende Tonausgabe kann ich es jedoch akustisch nicht überprüfen.

Das Gerät wurde getestet und funktioniert entsprechend obiger Beschreibung; es hat in meinem Analog-Studio gute Dienste geleistet. Wegen Umstellung auf ein reines Digital-Studio steht es nun zum Verkauf. Es sollte innerhalb einer Woche nach Auktionsende abgeholt werden, Standort ist München-Schwabing.” Link

ASK-90 Expansion Board For Akai S900 Sampler

Wednesday Jul 12, 2017

“I’m selling a Ask-90 Drum trigger board for the Akai S900. It was installed in my sampler before the sampler broke. I never used it but it should be working fine. The picture is not from the actual board but the board looks apparently fine. ” Link

The back-light has been upgraded from the original back-lit LCD to a modern super easy to read and comfortable to work with LED Screen. The screen is AMAZING to work with. Although the pic makes it look a bit funky, it is super bright white text on blue background, and evenly lit. Couldn’t get a really good picture of it due to the fact that it is so bright and OLED screens are notoriously difficult to photograph, but you get the jist.The floppy drive has been replaced with a super rare NEW drive. This update will give you YEARS of service and brings it’s screen visibility into the 21st century! All sampler functions tested and working!

It has 1.2 chips (most recent) which allow you to run Akai OS V4.0 and bring the functionality on par with the s950 (available separately on the internet and eBay).” Link

Akai MPC 2000 with SMPTE, 8-outs

Tuesday May 3, 2016

akaimpc2k ” Akai mpc 2000 classic in good condition; has some scratches on case, pre-gain and volume knobs are sunken in a bit but WORK PERFECTLY, absolutely no functional flaws, pads work like new, 8 out expansion is added (tested and working, came with it as I bought it like this), also has a an iomega zip100 plus scsi drive (also tested and works perfectly) with 3 disks bought brand new (only used one), and of course floppy with version 1.72 os. Floppy drive has no issues other than once in a blue moon it doesn’t read the boot disk when started up but then reads it when turned off than on again, which is very common for anything that uses floppy. In short, there is a few minor cosmetic blemishes but it works as inteded and has 8 out expansion as well as scsi drive with 3 100mb zip disks, and os floppy (which can be saved to a zip as well.)” Link

s900 “Used, vintage Akai S900 digital sampler for parts or repair. This was working fine, but then suddenly stopped powering up. Possibly a power supply issue, but I have not been able to fully diagnose.

Top and bottom case have heavy rack wear. Front and back panels are in good condition, with some light signs of wear. Some knobs are missing. See photos for details.” Link

s900ask90 “In working condition – all buttons and the data wheel, MIDI ports, individual outs and rec in connections are fully functional – but there are some issues:

– The front output volume/pan combination pot does not work (it hasn’t done since I bought the unit in 1997). This does not affect the volume of the individual outputs on the rear.

– The LCD backlight does not work. I can’t remember if it ever did, but there are replacement kits available on eBay.

– I have, unfortunately, lost the rack ears and the screws that secure the top panel.

– Cosmetically, there are many scratches and residue marks from masking tape. No dents or anything that impedes usage, however.

– Although the ASK90 drum trigger expansion is installed, I have never used it and can therefore not vouch for its condition.

This will still be ideal for anybody looking for the classic early S-series 12-bit sound, or indeed anyone who fancies restoring a legendary sampler.

Comes with additional OS4.0 floppy disk.” Link

aks90 “Generalüberholter Akai S900 mit neuem LED Display!

Die Legende aus der Akai S-Serie.

Absolutes Kultgerät! Einzigartiger warmer analoger 12 bit vintage Sound!

Es handelt sich hier um die Japan Version (qualitativ besser als die China Version)


– Gereinigtes Gerät aus tierfreiem Nichtraucherhaushalt.

– Neue Sicherungen wurden eingesetzt.

– Internes Netzteil wurde neu verlötet!

– Stromanschluss wurde nach EU Norm auf Kaltgerätestecker (C13)(PC Stromanschlusskabel) umgebaut.
Man benötigt nicht mehr das seltene veraltete zweipolige (C10) Kabel. Durch den Umbau ist das Gerät, im gegensatz zu vorher, nun ordnungsgemäß geerdet und kann mit einem handelsüblichen Kaltgerätestecker (PC Stromkabel ist im Lieferumfang inbegriffen) betrieben werden.

– Neues LED Display somit ist die Gefahr eines pfeifenden Inverters ausgeschlossen da das Display durch LED´s beleuchtet wird statt mit Leuchtfolie. Bessere Leuchtkraft wie auch Kontrast!
Auf den Fotos wirkt die Farbe des Display´s türkis.(liegt wohl an der Handykamera) Deshalb habe ich das letzte Bild aus dem Internet hinzugefügt, die die wahre Farbe des Display´s zeigt. Schönes sattes blau.

– Kein Live Einsatz. Wurde ausschließlich nur im Studio betrieben.

– 8x Outputs

– ASK 90 8x Inputboard (sehr selten und ein must have laut einschlägiger Berichte) ” Link
