Akai S950

Wednesday Jul 10, 2019

“Selling my AKAI S950 sampler, with a UK plug and EU converter.

Overall in nice condition, there are some minor scuffs and scratches (as normal considering the age of the unit).

Great machine with a classic 12 bit sound! Fun and easy to use.
Comes with a new ocean blue backlight. I have also added 5 boxes of floppy disks.

I have tested the unit and everything works properly.

Selling because I am reducing my audio gear collection. The item ships from Estonia (EU).” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Akai S950 with 2.25MB RAM

Tuesday May 7, 2019

“Vintage Akai S950 Midi Digital Sampler 1989 owned by me since new. Fully expanded memory onboard 2.25meg. (2x 750kb chips) with original manual, box, rack arms, some original Akai sound disks that came with it (not checked yet but will update all in listing)

MINT excellent condition see pics. Even the original blue backlight is still running! I would advise that it will need changing though by the buyer because it’s been over 30 years. It will not last long as you can see i have to show in a darkened room for it to be prominent (see pics). Bright daylight you won’t see it. Plenty of cheap deals for backlight replacement though. Other then that yea the main buttons knobs have yellowed a little but that’s age. All plastics go this way eventually. The data wheel sometimes a little jumpy on selection but data can be keyed in with numbers alternatively.

This is an absolute classic and nothing samples like it due to its unique 12 bit AD converters. Gritty , dirty sound on tap like old vinyl or warm and powerful you decide by your bandwidth setting. Samples up to 48 kHz and fully selectable. It’s known for being a top beats sampler by producers, but sample what you like.

The first sampler to introduce time stretching without altering pitch. Many other functions read online. Pre trigger recording was always a fave of mine and NO ONE ever put that function in elsewhere even today!”

Akai S950 with Internal Card Reader

Wednesday Sep 5, 2018

“The sampler is in really good working condition & comes with the original and fully functioning power supply and rack ear mounts pre-installed.

So reluctantly selling the sampler as I’ve spent a lot of money on it having the CF card reader installed and fitting a new jog wheel for better navigation around the screen’s menus.

But rest assured the pictures are the exact item that will be shipped to you & the sampler will be packed with great care to avoid any unnecessary damage during delivery.”

“Working Akai S950. Checked it all out before listing, works brilliantly. Only downside is backlight is temperamental, and only works occasionally. I worked in a well-lit room and never had any issue with the lack of backlight. Rack ears are supplied but I have mislaid the screws. So in an act of generosity I am also providing 50 floppy disks that were used with it. Most have samples on, some are formatted ready for use. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” Selling my trusty old Akai S950 – still a great sounding sampler – fully operational – and the back lit LED isn’t in too bad shape either (as shown in picture) couple of scratches as shown – but not visible when rack mounted.. which BTW it still has the original rack ears.
Have found a set of original Akai Library disks which I think came from the S1000 library.. still lets you load the samples into the 950.
Comes with power cable.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Now, this sampler sounds AMAZING! Make no dough about the power of this 12 Bit wonder.

It is fully upgraded memory wise, however, I cant remember exactly what that means. Its not a lot, but what it does offer is brilliant!

I have compared this to bit crusher Plug ins and the like, but it sounds so much better. Only selling it because, sadly, I have to downgrade my studio for space and this bad-boy is both big and heavy!

The Rec/Trig playback input is broken, however, I have no idea what this does anyway so never missed it. The mic and line in are also a little out of place, but work fine. It’s also a little grubby, but nothing that cannot be cleaned up.

the screen is also working well. ”

“WITHOUT A SHADOW of a doubt, the Akai S900 has left a lasting impression on the music industry, and many people still rate its sonic quality as being the best available from a 12bit sampler. With visual editors to make the machine easier to use available from the likes of Steinberg, Drumware and Digidesign, the S900 has become the standard against which other samplers of a similar nature were measured. Then, lo and behold, exit S900, S700 et al, and voila – enter the Akai S950.

Loads of floppy disk included” Click here to visit listing on eBay
